My wd440g is not draining properly. I have taken the lower back panel off but cannot detach the outlet hose from the machine as it is has a strange interlocking, white plastic, key type connection. How do I undo this?

Probablyu a blocked filter or pump.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remoive and clean filter inside hose
Check pump for blockage as well, and the drain outlet hose..
First, if there is still water in the drum lower the outlet hose into a bowl and if no water comes out then you have a blockage but if water flows out then the pump is at fault. To clear a blocked filter on a WMA machine which still has water in it, first tilt the machine backwards and open the door, bail out the contents of the drum with a mug or sponge untill it is as empty as you can get it. Now lower the machine back down again and remove the lower inspection panel at the back of the cabinet now tilt the machine forward.....place a tin of soup or something under it to hold it in a tilted possition, then put a bowl or deep oven dish under the sump to catch any remaining water when it is removed. Undo the retaining clip around the sump hose and disengage it from the container, the filter is inside the hose and can be taken out to be cleaned.Click the links for Workshop manuals on Hotpoint WMA and WM machines

Not too sure what you
mean but will try to explain. The water in the tub is only kept there because one
end of the outlet hose is higher than the tub and the job of the pump is to
push the water up the hose and out. If the outlet hose is lower than the tub,
all the water inside will just flow out, the pump does not hold the water in
the machine it only assists in its removal. If you remove the pump from the
machine altogether then the water will just flow onto the floor but if you disconnect
the pump from the wiring circuit it will just mean you have no mechanical way
of emptying the tub. However if you lower the hose to the ground then by the
force of gravity the water will flow out. Just one other point, the hose should
come out of the machine and rise up the back of the cabinet then loop down
again where it fits into a stand pipe or is connected to a waste pipe, if
however the end of the hose is lower than the tub you will get a siphoning
effect happen after the first pump out in which case the water from the machine
will just empty on its own without the aid of the pump. For more Hotpoint aid
Remove front kick plate at bottom of the machine and see if there is a filter behind it. If not you need to remove lower back panel from machine, then remove sump hose, (Large black hose situated under tub) To remove this you may need grips for removing the retaining clamp.Although on some machines it may be a large jubile clip
Hi, Please check the hose connecting the tub. Is there some thing stuck which is not allowing the water to drain. Most the of the washers have a catch sleeve inside the drain line before the drain pump. Remove the lower front panel to access the pump and remove the large hose from the drum. Inside the hose is the sleeve, take out the sleeve and clean it. Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. In this case it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. In case it clean there, check the outer tub port- open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Let us know if you were looking of something else.
syphon out the water by getting the end of the drain hose into a basin and putting it lower than the water level. a few shakes usually gets it flowing. you probably have a short circuit. my guess would be the heater box/element to start.
you will have a short circuit somewhere. usually the dryer box, but to get the water out you need to put the end of the drain hose lower than the water level into a basin to syphon it out.
the heating element of the dryer sometimes come loose on these machines and can be the cause of a short.
Suggest you check pump filter.
you will find it located at the rear right side of the m/c.
Remove lower rear panel, there you will see a large black hose, remove securing clip, and detach hose, the filter is located inside, remove and clean, make sure you put everything back in the same order you took it off.
This should solve your prob. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged and the outlet is clear also.
Plz rate my solution.
