Its a matter of removing the front retaining wire and the inner one which holds it onto the drum, an easy enough job to get off, sometimes a pain to get the inner off and on depending whether it s the screw or clamp type , screw=easy. to get the clamp off use a screwdriver to wiggle the bent wire out of the ratchet grooves. to put back is done with long nose pliers, preferably bent nose ones.

Horible smell comingfromthe drum, took the filter out to clean it, now it is leaking, what can I do? ps smell still there, have tried 1 95o wash with no joy


For the pump try taking filter back out and putting back again for smell clean out the rubber door seal with soapy water after the door seal is clean clean the despencer draw fully by taking it out. When you washed the seal and draw get washing machine clean for local super market and do a 95oc wash it should smell nice now if not could be drains hope this helps.

Putting back on a door seal on a hotpoint aquarius wf220 please thank you very much


For most front-loaders:
Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid. Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of hands. Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring.
Test for leaks before using. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher.

(There is no glue anywhere, only clamps,etc)


Pl rate me nice for the free help!

If ther is no filter at the front of washer, then remove lower rear panel of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose, also remove hose onto pump, and check for obstruction here and in the pump.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hi, A bleach based cleaner should improve things. It sounds like its a form of mildew , an airbourne fungus that likes damp places. Once bleached it should stay clear for a while. Make sure you rinse it after to avoid damaging your clothes. Hope this helps, Nick.
