Hotpoint wd420 clunking noises

Hi I have a Hotpoint wd420 washer dryer. The machine seems to wash ok (although sometimes there are bits of powder on clothes at 40 degree wash), but when the machine stops it will make clunking noises for up to about 20 minutes, and in that time you cannot open the door. Sometimes when it clunks, the door light will go off briefly and if you catch it right you may be able to open the door then.
Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

    Right, unscrew the lid of it , screws at the back (two usually then the lid slides forward to you, you may have to shock it a little, then lifts off, get your ear to it , run the cycle and then when it starts its thing find out where its coming from, it may be something really obvious and easy to fix, please dont get your hair tangled in it, dont get a shock through your ear either, go for it , what have you to lose? the Yeti

Sometimes when using the tumble dryer of my Hotpoint WD420 I get a puddle of water on the floor. Doesn't happen with every use. Do you know what the problem might be?


I suspect your dryer vent is blocked or partially clogged.. Also if your washer is not opperating properly putting wet close in the dryer could also cause this.....hope this helps!

Washing comes out smelling horrible! Any ideas?


It is not the washer that is causing the prob, more likely to be coming from waste pipe, and or sink if the pipe is connected to the sink waste pipe.
Check and clean filter in washer if it has one, and remove waste pipe from washer and check outlet is not partially clogged up with sediment and other substances.
If pipe goes into sink waste, then pour a sink pipe cleaning fluid of some description down sink waste.
Also make sure you are not doing too many low temp wshes, as this can cause a prob as well
Do a boil wash at least once a month without clothes in but with powder in.
This is called a maintenance wash, and helps keep the inside of washer clean, and free from smells.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

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.

Check if the hose from the tub to the drain area has come off; refit carefully. This could happen if the tub is unbalanced, happens sometimes.
