If you are certain that your washer has no filter at the front behind the lower removable panel, it is usually held on by 3 scews which you have to undo, or just held in place with plastic lugs, then you will have to remove the lower rear cover of washer. Locate large black hose at lower right of tub, remove clip and hose.
inside you will see the plastic filter,
Remove and clean filter, refit filter and plastic ball if it has one, refit hose and clip securely, and water test for leaks.
Be careful when you remove hose as there will be water run out.

Please make sure you have it unplugged before you do all this.
Plz rate my solution, and feel free to leave any comments.

    Prize the clip apart with a screwdriver, replace it with a jubilee clip or a large plastic bag tie

Where is the filter? And how do I remove front panel?

It's probably behind a panel at the front of the machine at the bottom nearest the floor. The panel will clip or pull off. You haven't specified what model your machine is!!

Ctd80 hotpoint dryer panel flashing dryer not working

Filter at bottom of machine needs pulling out and cleaned on a regular basis. This is a common fault and the lights is telling you to clean the filter. It is a large filter that unclips at the bottom front of machine. Remove two small screws from the front of the filter located left and right and gently remove the front plate. Once removed you will see a metal filter clogged with clothing debris. Clean with cotton buds and a damp cloth till clean. replace all parts and you should have it working once again with a good heat source as well. Every 2-3 months is sufficient to keep it cleaned. Hope this helps.

Wheres the filter on the hotpoint wd440

Remove front kick plate at bottom of the machine and see if there is a filter behind it. If not you need to remove lower back panel from machine, then remove sump hose, (Large black hose situated under tub) To remove this you may need grips for removing the retaining clamp.Although on some machines it may be a large jubile clip

Where is the filter on Hotpoint first edition washing machine ?

Some of these models, I believe, had a filter behind the front plynth. If nothing there then you will have to get to the back of the appliance.
Disconnect the power supply and remove the bottom back plate.
You will see a black hose that connects to the bottom of the drum and the other end connected to a drain pump.
With a few towels handy (make sure washing machine is empty!) unscrew the large clip holding the hose to the outer drum. Indide this hose you will find a filter. Remove, clean and refit.
Make sure hose is pushed firmly back on the outer drum and the clip fully tightened.

test with a small amount of water in the drum to make sure there are no leaks.

Hope this helps

On my Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 1000 spin there are two lights flashing, one of them is the Time Delay ligh and the other is the Crease Reduction light, does anyone know why this might be occuring?

Try this out, it's for another hotpoint model:
The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. In side is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats in side. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Would be good to check out the pump too

How to clean the filter

the dryer filter is in the dryer box on top of the drum, under the lid of the machine at the rear, sometimes has a grey hose going into it, the box will have to be removed and split to access it.
the wash filter will be either at the front of the machine behind the kick plate or at the rear behind the lower panel attached to th bottom of the drum.
