SOURCE: The fabric softner is not going into my washing machine

hi there just try washing the complete soap drawer again in boiling water leave in there for 10minutes to let the hot water work into the gaps and make sure u take all the holders out of the drawer u sometimes have to use a tooth brush to get into the small holes at the bottom of the little funnel what your softener holder goes over also get a small flat blade screwdriver and clean inside that funnel if thats not clean it will stop softener from going away if this doesnt work still then when your softener is supposed to be taken thru the programme make sure the washer opens the valve for the water to go into the fabric softener holder if it doesnt then the solenoid will need replacing as this could be faulty. LET ME KNOWHOW U GET ON PLEASE PETER

SOURCE: does machine have a filter

The filter is to be found at the rear of the washer.
Remove lower rear panel of washer, remove large black hose fastened to bottom of tub.
Watch out for water running out.
Remove plastic`filter inside hose and clean.
Refit filter and hose.
Dirty washing can somtimes be attributed to washing at too low a temperature, so make sure you have selected right temp for washing.
Please leave a fixya rating for my solution.Thanks.

SOURCE: lights flashing / flickering on face on controls-machine not work

This is normally a signal that is for a control fault. you will need to pull the power and shut this unit down for 5 minute.. if the unit continues to flash after this reset, you will need to replace the control board/timer in this case. it has failed.

SOURCE: Noisy spin on hotpoint aquarius WF530 6kg washing machine. Suspect bearing how do I replace them.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.
Thanks.

My Washing machine hotpoint aquarius WDPG 8640 will not take in fabric softener


It is likely that the tray need removed from the machine and the back side of the drain cleaned. Over time the softener can build up and eventually plug off from the back side. So just cleaning the tray won't clear the problem.

I have a build up of black mould in the dispenser part of my Hotpoint Aquarius washing machine. I have tried washing on a high temp with just biological powder, but this hasn't worked. Have also tried...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Here are my general guidance notes written, in particular, for the softener part which often is overlooked when dispenser drawer cleaning is carried out ;-0)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of these should enable you remove it
(I am having to guess some of the following!)
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
Good luck,
John C

When hotpoint aquarius starts washing cycle, water comes out of soap dispensing tray. is there a blockage in the pipe to the drum . i allways use liquids instead of powders, so i find a pipe blockage as...


It could have over filled, or the drum is turning too fast, or there is a blockage in the dispenser hose. To accessw the hose, remove the top cover, and give the hose a good squeeze to clear any possible blockage.
There is little else it could be, so I am afraid it is a process of elmination.
Good luck.

Fabric conditioner stays in the dispenser tray


the holes above the fabric softener tray that shower into it may be blocked. use an upturned washing up brush to scrub them with a little fairy liquid and see if that works, it does for me. also could be a water pressure issue.
