    Thanks for your help but the front bottom plastic has a metal casing shell behind it when removed, and the back is all metal casing no plastic or filter., Its a Hotpoint Aquarius 1000 WM62.

    You obviously dont understand yourself,their is no panel at the back only metal casing. no need to be facetious and rude is their.....

    yes - I have a small panel on the front of my AXXIS, l opened it and found nothing that appeared to be a filter. there was a small knob inside that was like a flywheel - l could easily spin it with my finger.
    On the back... there is no black hose attachment. The hose attachments are the hot and cold water attachments.
    I was told by a repairman to clean my water filters - but I still cannot locate them.
    (FYI: I am trying to clean the water filter because of an error message that intermittently appears during the wash-cycle stating that the water must be turned off or something because there is no water flow ... and the wash-cycle ceases)

Depending upon which model you have, the filter can be be found in 2 different locations.
First, if there is a removable plastic cover at the bottom front of m/c, then remove same, and see if the filter is there.
If it is there, then unscrew plastic cover anti clockwise, remove and clean filter.
If no filter there, then remove lower rear cover of washer, locate large black hose at lower right ,remove clip and hose, remove plastic filter and ball inside ,and clean.
Be careful as there will be water run out.
Refit filter and hose securely, test for leaks.
Plz rate my solutrion.

    You obviously did not under stand fully the solution I provided

    I stated that if there was no filter at front , then check it from the rear of washer.

    It has a removable panel, etc,etc please refer to my earlier proposed solution, I fully explained what you should do.

    Perhaps you would like to rerate my solution, I think it deserves more than -----Thanks for trying, dont' you?

Hotpoint Aqaurius WML520. No functions at all, motor does not spin, pump does not empty water out, none of the programs work.


This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Hi please can you help me, i have a hot point aqaurius washer, but the inside rubber round the door as gone black and mouldy

You can buy a product at Aldi/Lidl to clean the inside of washing machinest. It's not the machine manufacturer, it happens with all makes, especially if you have one of the better ones that lasts a long time. Can't remember the name of the product. It's a liquid you pour into the tray. But if you put some on a cloth and rub it into the rubber it will remove mould and discolouration.

My hotpoint aqaurius WD420 is not drying.

Could be stat or heater .Remove the top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the right side of washer drum.
The element and stat/s are located on the top of the manifold box.
You willneed a meter to test with, also check for broken wires.
