Where's the filter?

I have the WMA33 Aquarius and was wondering if the models are the same in design, and if the filter would be in the same position?

Where is filter on my hotpoint aquarius wmf540 washing machine, im getting white fluff over all my clothes everytime i put a wash on, im guessing the filter needs cleaning and just wondered where it is

see last page.

also, you should try run a cycle without any clothes (add a bit of bleach) in it in cold water for once to rinse out the dirt.

Where do I find the filter on my Hotpoint Aquarius WM22? Or does it not have one?

Both the Hotpoint WD63 (wash dryer) and the Hotpoint WM22 (washing machine) have a drain filter in the sump hose at the bottom of the tank.

This filter is a last line protection for the pump and is not designed to be cleaned on regular intervals by the user.

My machine won't spin. The belt is OK. Any ideas? Brushes possibly? Thanks, Ian

Could be brushes, only way to be certain is to remove motor and check them for wear.
Replace if less than 4 or 5mm long.
Could also be blocked pump filter.
To check , remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean plastic filter inside hose.

Variable temp control how does it work

It allows you to select any wash you like, and set the temperature as you require it, thus giving you much more flexibility over the programmes.
Do not use it at 95 for all your washing, as it will cause problems with clothes shrinkind, and colours running.
Check the washcare labels on clothing before selecting the correct temperature, you can always go lower than the recommended temperature, but do not set it higher than it is supposed to be.

Hotpoint WMA33 washer - door won't open

Problem seems to have corrected itself! I tried another slow spin cycle, waited a reasonable interval for the Door Locked light to go off, then when it didn't I switched the power to the machine off. I tried squeezing the door catch a few times and pressing the door downwards, then left it. Some time later when I went into the kitchen the door was open. I washed a small load this morning and the machine worked normally. Fingers crossed, it's ok now.

Cant find the filter

It should be right in the air flow, on top, behind, or on newer models a slider in the front.

This usually indicates that the sensor which determines that the door is shut properly could be faulty.

My WMA33 does this occasionally. I manually push the door in and up slightly with my knee - and then start the wash cycle. This seems to work every time.

Failing that you will need to replace the door sensor. A call to hotpoint may help.
