    we have had a look and have managed to drain the water what we think it was is the lock broke during a wash which ended the wash halfway through (thus leaving the water inside) the machine doesn't work now as its not locking. are these easily replaceable?

The first question you need to ask yourself is, "is the drain pump running?" If you can hear the drain pump running when it tries to drain, then more than likely you have a clogged drain pump, or drain line. Here's how you can determine which one: You can check the drain line by seeing if it collapses when the pump starts to run. If it does, then you know you have a clogged line somewhere BEFORE the pump. This usually means an article of clothing has gotten between the wash basket and outer tub and is stuck in the line. If the line is full of water and doesn't seem to be going anywhere, hook up a wet/dry shop vac to the drain hose in the rear of the machine to see if you can pull water from the tub, through lines, and through the pump. If you can't, you know you probably have a clogged pump, or drain line AFTER the pump. If the drain pump does not come on, you may have a pump failure. In either case, you need to drain the water from the tub. A wet/dry shop vac does a great job at pulling water from the tub, so you don't have to bail. Let me know if this helps.

    If the door latch is broken, the washer will definitely not start or complete a cycle. The latch itself is fairly easy to replace. It should be held in by a few screws and a connector plug. Getting to it is usually the challenge, though. You will need to remove the rubber door boot from the around the outer door opening to access behind the front case. You do not need to remove the boot completely. Just the outer portion that fits around the door opening. This should give you easy access to the latch and connector(s). Make sure you unplug the machine prior to servicing. I hope this answers your question.

Wf310 hotpoint aquarius washing machine wont spin or drain

Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. 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. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. 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. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

And rate me nice pl for the free help!

The water is not draining away. Hotpoint WD63

filter is located at the bottom rear of the appliance... if its pump obstruction then to lay the drain hose into a bowl is a means of getting the water out manually.. if its a blockage and water wont drain this way then lay the unit down on its R/H side (not soap dispenser side)....then acces to the filter can be made without flooding the if 2 persons were to do this as the machine can be heavy when full with water and clothes.. best of luck..

Washing still wet - door won't open.

not a fault with washer. i guess you are plumbed into trap under sink. the spigot you fastened drain hose to is blanked off - there are various methods of doing this including have to saw off the end of the spigot with the bread knife. possible also a fault with pump or filter
