Hotpoint Aquarius wdl540 wont spin ot drain. I've took the bottom panel off but cant fully open the screw cap to clean it out. Feels like something is stopping it. Any ideas on what can open it


If it has the pump filter at the front bottom, (some don't). pull machine out and tilt it back to 45deg using the work top to steady it.
You can use long nose or regular pliers to just rotate it as far as you can-Do not force. Then rotate it back half the distance. Keep repeating and most of the time you will get it. If you have kide it could ba a lolly pop stick, 10p 2p coin. Builder in the family nail?
Drain water into sink bowel gently tilting machine back and forth. Clear water as much as you can and if the inside of the filter is OK screw the filter back on.
Important. There maybe more foreign objects lurking in the pipes! Drop it back into it's normal stance then tilt back again, (you may want to do this a couple of times). Check filter again.
Put it level put a bit of water in to it- Stop- Then select drain. Hey Presto, job done.

Just had the exact same issue with my F&P it would stay in the drain cycle(without draining). It would show 2 minutes left in the cycle, dropping to 1 minute, but would never complete the cycle.
For some reason the machine would not drain the water from the drum and would continually remain in the drain cycle, spinning the load(back & forth), but not draining the water.
----------
This is how I sorted the machine: -
1. I turned off & unplugged the machine.
2. I drained the machine manually. Opening the manual drain compartment located at the bottom right of the machine.
a). Firstly drained the majority of the water using the small black hose into a plastic container(ice cream container will be fine). Took a little while as the machine was quite full and I also didn't want to flood the laundry.
b). Once I had drained most of the water I undid the filter plug to drain the remainder of the water, which wasn't too much & was able to mop up with a towel. I gave the filter a good clean, removing as much build up in there(which in actuality was very little lint, gunk, etc. Though I did find a small button & a collar stay wedged in there).
3). I blew very hard into the washing machine drain hose a few times(read this on another forum so thought I'd give it a try!). Use a plastic bag, etc. to cover the hose etc. for hygiene purposes :)
4). I then plugged & turned on the machine. The machine went straight back into the 2 minute drain cycle. It attempted to drain/pump remaining water, however this time machine successfully went through the 2 minute drain cycle. Machine stopped, counted down, click and I was able to open the door.
I put the washing through a rinse setting to see whether the machine would complete cycle. I can happily report that the machine completed the rinse cycle on the washing with no issues. I also put through another load to see if it would complete a full wash cycle, which I can report it happily did so.
This may have just saved me a grand$ :)
Good luck.
cheers

After about 10 minutes into a cycle my machine stops and green lights and red start button start flashing. There is water still in the drum but when I change the cycle to either spin or drain after a while...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

LG WM0642HW ALWAYS HAVE (LE)


Unplug the unit from main outlet.Then drain the water from the machine.By disconnecting the drain pump ,There will be too much water so be care full.If you disconnect the drain pump from drain hose to drain the water it will flow on you,so keep towels ready to soak the water. Also clean the water filter. ----------------- In most of the case LE error is solved by just disconnecting the washing machine from main power outlet for 30 minutes.But if the problem is still the same then try cleaning the filter and draining the water from drain pump.This error occurs when motor stops functioning and water does not drain. --------------Also another cause of LE error is Regarding the LE ERROR CODE. This code is also caused by having a residue on the sensors in your unit. You have to use a HE liquid detergent.If you use fabric softener use half of the recommended amount and dilute if it is concentrated. Once a month (for a family of four) put 3 cups of white distilled vine-ager directly into the drum and select sanitary cycle or the hottest cycle you can. This prevents residue from forming in your unit and causing the LE ERROR CODE. ---------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech,.

The machine stops mid way through the wash and stays full of water. I have to drain it at least three times to get rid of all the water and then spin, cloths are still very wet even after spin. It will not...


Sounds like the filter is clogged. 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.

Hotpoint WF340 wont drain


I have the HOTPOINT WF540 with the same problem ....So remove the front panel at the front of the machine and you will see the filter plug unscrew anti clockwise, you may find it difficult to unscrew as the filter may be blocked solid with coins ans long objects but once you have started it off wiggle it back and forth with some force till the objects dislodge you may be scared of breacking it but the worst you can do is snap of the plunger which is attached to the filter plug, behind the filter plug its self which will do no real harm and you can put it back in unattached to the filter plug with no worries when your done
you can also drain of the water out of the drum drum from this point but you will need a very slim try to fit under the front of the washer below the filter plug DO NOT totaly remove the plug if the is washing machine is full of water, just release the plug till water slowly trickles out and drain it a bit at a time or you will flood your floor

Hotpoint Aquarius wd440 washer/dryer wont pump out water HELP!


hold the start button for 5 seconds this should clear previous program. then select drain on your dial. press start as normal and machine will drain. if this does not work the only other remedy is with help, making sure the end of the drain hose is higher than drum at all times take machine outside, lean it back at 45 degrees agaist a wall with a towel or similar covering lid to stop scratching . working from underneath loosen the large jubillee clip that connects the drum to pump drain hose to the drum. As the drum is overfull there is no recepticle large enough to fit under so just let water just flow away. Dry every thing off. make sure you don't loose ping pong ball in filter and make sure filter is clear. refitting is reverse of removal

My Kenmore washing machine he3


I had the problem of my HE3 washer would not drain all the way. Well I am pretty good at fixing stuff so I took apart the botton panel and there was the drain. I opened up the drain plug with a small bucket (gallon size) underneath and it started to drain and drain. Well about 3 gallons and five big beach towels on the floor i thought I fixed it. I found a service award badge and a couple of small socks. So I put everything back together and started to run a cycle. After the cycle finished my daughter decided to open the door and realized it was full again. After we got out the shop vac and sveral more beach towels. I go back to the drain plug and started to noticed the the drain area is clear. So I thought it was a fluke. Unpluged the washer for a few minutes and started another cycle. Once I realized the washer did not drain again, I was starting to get mad. I took the bottom panel off again and looked under the drum and realized I might new a new pump. Well I called my dad to run the issuse by him to see what he thought. About that time my son opened the washer no realizing I was working on it. I am really mad now. My dad stops by and helps clean up the water. He looks at the drum and realizes the rubber drain piece that comes off the drum twists when it is on the drain mode. So I pull the spring clamp off and put a stainless steel hose clamp (.89 cents) and lined up the black rubber drain piece the way it is suppose to on. It has been working great every since. Sometimes you need about 6 gallons of water to realize that it is always the simplest thing that stump you.
