Hotpoint aquarius WD740 F13 Drain issue?

Picked up second hand as i've just moved out. Run it on rinse cycle, it works, but just fills up and up until i get f13 fault. Turn it off, to drain, back on, 1 in 5 times it will drain at high pressure, so pump ok, checked for blockages and cleaned anyway, someone had removed filter. The rest of time it starts to pump, pressurizes for about 1 second, and then it stops. Anyone had anything similar?

Your problem is with the pressure switch to locate it try to find a thin pipe going from the tub to the pressure switch it's a round machine having a thin pipe and some electrical cables, try to remove the pipe and blow air in it if there is dirt it will goes in the tub also check the filter if there is no filter it will not drain

Testimonial: "Ok thanks, well i'll give that a go when i get home tonight, and as for the filter, the plastic skeleton is there, but it looks like the gauze has been removed, it has drained once whilst I've been working on it so I think it at least thinks it has a filter. Thanks for your help"

    turned out to be a broken wire near the pressure switch, but it was looking there that helped me find it so thanks anyway :-)

SOURCE: Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts

Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.

SOURCE: WDI12C Machine Will Not Drain - Error Code E06

This is a useless machine. I had it and after about 14 months, in quick succession, the pump broke and then the timer broke. A friend with the same machine had the same experience. AVOID!

SOURCE: whirlpool duet sport wfw8300sw00 f-21 error

Unplug the machine. Unscrew the 3 screws under the front edge of the washer. The service technician manual is attached to the panel that slides down and off. Find F21 code. See suggested procedures. Note: My drain pump filter had a baby wash cloth in it along with some change that was disrupting the flow. It is exceptionally easy to remove, clean, and reinstall. Just line up installation notches when reinstalling. Whirlpool should have mentioned this filter in the User & Care Guide, but I could not find it anywhere in there.

SOURCE: wf310 hotpoint aquarius washing machine wont spin or drain

Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.


And rate me nice pl for the free help!

SOURCE: Hi, good evening. I have a zanussi iz12 washing

Hi there

I have an IZ12 jetsystem which sometimes works and other times it starts and then clicks and stops just before the water starts to run in. I usually turn it off and try it again a few hours later and then it starts to work again. Sometimes it is the next day before it will work again. Would anyone know the problem?

Hotpoint aquarius wm20 will not fill on swill cycle except when taking fabric con ditioner can you help


Sounds like the valve coil has failed on the rinse side of the valve, to prove it, you can reverse the connections to the coils, select the last rinse, and it should commence to fill.
If it is faulty, then it means replacing the complete valve.

Hotpoint Electronic 800 WM 12 Aquarius won't rinse


If it won't rinse because it won't fill, it's most probably because the cold water inlet valve is faulty. Many machines will only rinse with cold water....No cold water.....No rinse!! Not a big job.....Nomess

F13 error during drying cycle


Hi, that indicates that either the fan motor is not working/ blocked or the dryer thermistor (thermostatic sensor) is playing up. Of course, the pcb reads the sensor so it could also be that causing the error.

Machine fills and drains at the same time.


Check the height of the drain hose and make sure the drain hose is higher than 30 inches from the ground. If your drain hose drains into the floor you may need to purchase a siphon break to stop the problem
