Have you checked the filter? This can be found at the large end of the pipe. It is secured with a large jubilee clip.
Thankyou for using Fixya.

The machine fills up but will not drain or spin, I have just removed hoses and there is no blockages, could the filter need cleaned, is so where is it located?

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 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

How does the wf430 hotpoint washing machine drain

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:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; 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;} 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.

Wheres the filter on the hotpoint wd440

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

WMD960 or 940 washing machine does not drain water it backs up and has led to flooding. Plumbing is not blocked, hose is at correct height. Do the pipes need to be bigger to the waste? It is brand new...


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.

That means that the machine detected a problem at a certain point of the cycle and stopped.

If the machine stops when filling check the inlet valve and the water supply.

If it stops because ofervilling check the water level switch.

If it stops when the cycle is hot water only , then check the heating element.

If it stops when draining, then inspect drain filter, drain pump , and drain hose. You access the drain hose removing a panel at the front side of the machine.

If it stops when motor is supposed to spin faster (rinse) then it is motor control unit or motor coupler.

If it is none of the above, then it is a defective control board.

Hotpoint WD440G In wash cycle and blows all household plugs

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.

Wd440g Hotpoint - in wash cycle and is blowing all the household

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.

Hotpoint aquarius WMA58 spinning but not draining away all the water

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.
