Hi, I need a repair manuel for a Hotpoint wm 53 first edition 1200 please. PDF download would be great. Many thanks.


You willnot be able to purchase a repair manual for your washer, as they are usually not available to the public to buy.
Try going to a repair forum, there are quite a few on the net, and they are very helpful.

Where is the filter on Hotpoint first edition washing machine ?


Hi.
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

Bad smell coming from washing machine


It probably is related to your drain outlet, depending on the set-up, I would suggest you remove drain hose and clean the place where the drain hose enters the drain system, if possible, clean all associated pipework
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint first edition automatic washing machine washes clothes .


I've got a Hotpoint First Edition WM52 that stopped spinning at the end of the wash cycle. Called the repair man and he said it was most likely just the filter blocked? Suggested I reemove the front base panel and try to locate the filter remove, clean and replace. Front panel wouldn't come off, base panel at the rear, 6 screws to remove revealing a black squeezy hose with slide grips holding them on, on removal of the hose two ten pence pieces, a one pence piece and a childs hair clip blackened with dirt sat blocking the top of the hose.
Hope this helps; repair man saved me £58+vat just with a few words and a bit of persistence from myself

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!


hiya
first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj
