    Hello, I think you pump filter is blocked. It's around the back of your machine, it's abit tricky mind.

I am not sure what that fault code means but you should be able to find the codes on the Internet.
I would suspect that the problem is a jammed or blocked or faulty drain pump. As has been sugested drain by gravity by lowering the hose into a bowl to the floor, -----REMOVE THE PLUG FROM THE SOCKET. ---- Inspect the pump, see if it is blocked or jammed, the hoses come off quite easily. Clear any rubbish out and see if the pump will then run by selecting pump and spin cycle when plugged in.
It is a good idea to take the thin pressure switch hose off at the switch end and make sure that it is clear through to the bottom by blowing down it. Make sure the machine is unplugged first.
Gently blow the switch too, you must get 2 clicks , first one with a gentle blow, and another with a slight increace in pressure.. Refit all hoses securely.
Hope that will solve your problem.. Sam.

SOURCE: fills washes rinses but wont spin properly or empty out

its likely the pump is blocked (hence the humming) with a coin or some foreign object. To check, lower the outlet hose to ground level to allow the water to empty. Tip machine back & lean against a wall, remove the pump & remove object if there is one! Reassemble & try machine again

SOURCE: wf340 hotpoint washer

it will be to do with the pressure switch it may be faulty, but more often than not there is a blockage in the pressure chamber which is located at the bottom of the outer drum, check the chamber and the tube that goes up to the pressure switch to see if they are blocked if they are clear of obstruction then test the pressure switch,to do this unclip the pressure switch from the side of the machine but dont take the wires off once off pull the tube off that goes down to the pressure chamber once off blow in to the nossle on the pressure switch, you should hear it click and then when you release it should click again, if it doet click twice then that is your problem, hope that helps.

SOURCE: Hi I have a hotpoint washing machine model wt761

You have a blockage not allowing the drum to empty.
Check for blockages via the pump filter and the hoses
F05 means blocked pressure switch
If it still won't work come back to me

Machine worked fine to start with . Then stopped. Will fill water but drum wont turn on a wash cycle. And wont spin on spin cycle.But Belt seems fine. Can you help.


The pump needs to be replaced. The pump controls the agitation for the wash cycle, also controls the tub for draining & spinning after the wash & rinse cycle. The belt has nothing to do with it. Pump is very simple to remove & replace, and not too expensive, it's plastic.

Water wont pump out code f-05


Clogged drain pump.
Check the drain pump filter. Use a flashligth and you will se if the impeller is stuck on something. If not check the hose from the drum to the drainpump housing. May be clogged.
If not, replace drainpump
