Question about Hotpoint WMA46 Front Load Washer

Hotpoint WD51P First Edition 1100

Help! My washing machine doesn't seem to be draining. It will still run a wash cycle, but the water does not drain away at the end. Due to the model type I can't find a pump/fluff filter anywhere, and there doesn't seem to be any information on where this would be located on either the hotpoint website, or in the manual. Any suggestions? I don't believe the front base panel screws off, (I have tried) but I could be wrong. Thanks for your help!

Hotpoint wd440 washer/dryer. 1st problem was it wouldn't drain so I cleared the pipe. Now the machine 'wash' light flashes during a wash. The washing machine doesn't seem to hold the water...

Make sure that the outlet of the pipe is at least as high above the floor as the top of the machine. If it is lower than the level of the water, it will just drain - there is no shut-off valve to stop it from doing this. Please rate this answer.

My hotpoint wma56 wont do its fast spin cycle

Have you checked and cleaned the filter on the machine, usually located and the front near the bottom. If so then there is 2 other possibilities, either your water pump at the back of the machine is blocked or faulty, or it's the timer on the machine. A washer won't go into spin mode until it has drained all the water from the machine first. hence the pump has to run. Just remember to drain all the water from the machine before checking your filter otherwise it will end up on your floor.

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!

first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj

Check to see if any water remains in the machine . SOME MACHINES IF They DO NOT DRAIN OUT ALL THE WATER WILL CONTINUE TO run until all water is drained. Also check for suds in machine if machine senses suds it will try to re rinse the clothes.If your machine has a filter at the bottom clean it out .
