Yes it is fine. Plastic does not corrode.

OHOHOH water comming out of the machine.
You have cleaned drain pipe and the opening as well as the glass. You will find that if after this cleaning process and take a short wash with old pillow cses, Hvis der setter sig a lot of debris in the material, there is still alot of cleaning to do.

Sounds like you need a new tube or fastener.
Is the tube connector on back of machine long enough still ? (ie not broken off).

Smell coming from washing machine like stagnant water-hotpoint wma 44....seems to be coming up through the drain in sink


Hi from retired Englishman in France,

If the smell is coming from the drain in the sink, it is more likely that THERE is the problem rather than the washing machine. Washing machines deal only with 'dirty' clothes whereas sinks have all sorts of things going down them! You could have a partially blocked u-tube (not to be confused with YouTube!) in the sink because normal (changing/flowing) water in the u-tube should block smells coming from the main/foul water drainage system.
I would definitely investigate the sink! If it is not practical to remove the u-tube, use a propriatory sink cleaner ensuring that it is the right one for the job- OK for plastics or OK for metal (not chrome).

Good luck,

John C

Hi I am looking for the filter that collects debree from the rinse water in a hotpoint wf430


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} The filter is inside the machine, for the 420model. Turn off the power and pull out the machine to get to the rear. Pull out the hose you see going into the wall pipe, lay at floor level or plastic bag to drain out remaining water in machine. Remove the panel at the bottom (2 screws) where the discharge hose comes out. You should see a black concertina type tube coming from below the drum attached by a jubilee clip. The filter is inside. Loosen the clip and pull away the tube, take out the filter and clean it. When you replace it don't forget to put the ball float back in (exactly as you found it) and check it’s well fixed by running a spin cycle before sealing up. Caution, the exit drain hose shd be fitted at the exact location where you found it, abt three feet up from ground level.

Pl rate me nice for the free help, thnks.

Washer hotpoint


hi,
there could be many reasons for this, try these

Air-gap device: The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. if this develops crack or is deformed, you may develop a leak or blockage.
The tube:There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. there could be blockage or deformation in this tube.

Inlet spout:Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. there could be some blockage in this.

try to find the place till which the water flow is unhindered in the machine.

cheers
