Because they are there for transport ONLY.
They are not necessary when the macine is in use - in fact will cause damage.

My housemate washed two garments in my WT540 AQUARIUS HOTPOINT MACHINE and now water is stuck in the drum and not moving. The door is locked. How do I wash out the water so I can get those two garment

something has blocked the pump I susspect, turn off the machine!!! there should be a small cover or door at the base of the machine, have a baking tray and large towel ready to collect the water, open the pump cover place the tray as close as possible and if you have a small tube inside then remove the plug and drain the water to the tray.if its just the screw cap then unscrew the cap behind the cover anti clockwise, water may begin to empty so be ready to either screw the cap back in or replace the stopper as the water in the machine will fill the tray several times, when all the water is empty check the pump is clear by looking into the hole the water flowed from, remove any obstrustion ( if you have the tube you will also have a screw cap to access the pump filter) when obstuction is cleared, screw caps back in and put stopper in, switch the machine on and select a spin cycle,let it finish and end, this should sort it out.

Hoover SE230 - How do I remove the top cover?

Can't get the image I'm looking for but if this is like most front load washers, there is a screw in each upper corner of the back of the machine. Removing those allows you to slide the top back and then lift off.

    I'm getting an F02 error on my Whirlpool front loading washing machine. How do I fix?

    The F02 error code is for a long drain. (See image below).

    Without a model number I am only able to provide you with generic instructions. I have included a set of illustrated instructions you will need to check drain pump filter. (See images below). Once the bottom panel is removed the drain pump filter cover looks like a gas cap. Remove that and then remove any foreign objects. If the drain pump is clear it probably needs to be replaced.

    Hoover Quattro Whisper 1400 washing machine AE 240 I would like to clean the filter as scum builds inside the rubber seal on the door Cant find the filter, no obvious opening

    On the front bottom of the machine there is a plastic 'kick plate' that clips/pushes on. Remove this plate and you will see the filter with a cover secured by a star/phillips screw. Loosen screw and twist this cover off to gain acess. Don't do what i've just done and twist without removing this screw as it breaks it:-(

    anyone who knows where i can get a filter cover please post back!

    Error message EC03 appears on cotton cycle after 5 minutes into wash

    I found the basic instructions that came with the washing machine and found that you need a screwdriver to undo a screw to remove the filter cover. I then gradually released the filter cover to empty the water out of the machine in small quantities into a shallow tray. I was then able to remove the filter and clear it of 2 x 20p pieces and a load of gunk. I then removed the 'washable' floormat from the drum as the rubber backing from the mat was crumbling and probably not helping the filter. Filter cleaned and cover screwed back in, mat in the bin, and everything working fine since.

    I did try ringing the customer support number and after pressing loads of keys to select appropriate options; confirming my address, postcode, name, date of birth, email address, mothers maiden name, what the kids had for breakfast etc, I was allowed to ask how to get the filter cover off. Apparently this is a technical query and would involve arranging an engineer to call. I declined this very kind service option and opted for a screw driver, common sense and a positive attitude. Worked for me! No blood shed, a tiny bit of sweat whilst trying to get through on phone, and only tears of joy when I fixed it all by myself.
