Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 Front Load Washer

Same Problem.. not able to find the lint filter on EWD1477

Called the service center. They are not able to find it as well. They think that it might be the drain filter that the manual is referring to.

In the 4th page of the manual it is clearly mentioned that the lint trap needs to be cleaned after every cycle. I don't think this is the same as the drain filter.

Will post back if they help solve the problem. Too much lint to handle.

Lou, thanks for your answer, but I think that the original question is to do with the 'mysterious lint trap' that is mentioned in the manual but isnt actually a part of the machine (ie, its a typo / incorrectly edited manual - copied from another model)

The thing we are trying to find is the lint trap for the condenser unit, which is not the same as the drain pump/filter/trap on the bottom right of the unit (or, at least, shouldn't be - if it existed).

I think this model has a specially designed condenser unit that somehow cleans itself from the action of the washing clothes (in your next run), and flushes the lint from any previous drying cycles away with the rinse water during the next wash.

To help keep things clean, you could try to dissolve or at least break up any gunk buildup inside your machine (likely if your not using the 95 degrees C wash temp setting) by using lots of concentrated bleach (at max temp). However, this could damage the machine, but in my experience it is OK. I am not a employee of electrolux nor am I a service person :)

Unplug your unit.Revmove the bottom acess cover to your unit. Their is a drain pump that has a lint trap . Make sure that most, if not all your water is drained before attempting to remove the lint trap/filter. Have towels handy as well

The dryer heats up but does not dry the clothes completely.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
If your dryer cabinet is feeling very wam to the touch and your clothes are not drying properly it is always caused by poor air flow problems.
Here are steps you should to attempt to get it working normally again:
1. Pull out the lint filter
a. Inspect the cavity where the lint filter was (use a flashlight). Make sure there is not lint build-up under the lint filter. Use a folded wire coat hanger and a vacuum with a crevice tool to remove any lin in this area.
b. Wash the lint filter with vinegar and water then soap and water. Fabric sheet particulate builds up on the lint filter. It will appear clean but can still be almost completely blocked.
2. Remove / dis-connect the vent duct from the back of the dryer.
a. Turn on the dryer briefly and check air-flow. The air-flow should push a relaxed hand gently away from the immediate area of the vent duct connection. If you do not have good air-flow here you must inspect the internal ducting of the dryer for restrictions. Use the folded wire hanger and a vacuum to remove any debris from the internal duct vent ducting.
3. Inspect the ducting from the rear of the dryer all the way through and OUTSIDE the home. The vent flapper outside the home is most often one of the primary reasons for poor airflow. Clear the lint from both sides of the metal flapper outside the home.
4. Lastly if after doing all of the above you still have poor air-flow the most likely failure is the blower wheel attached to the motor shaft. Either there is a problem with the fan blades or the center hub has failed allowing the blower wheel to spin on the end of the motor shaft.

A final comment... when you think you have the internal dryer ducting clean.. start over cleaning again for a 2nd cleaning. I cannot tell you how many times I have performed in-home service and the customer said they had done all of the above yet when I clean the same ducting I can fill a 5 gal SHOP-VAC 50% full with the lint they did not remove.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Is there a lint trap or lint filter on this washer? It is a kenmore washer model# 11022622100. I seem to remember my old washer having one inside the lip of the tub but I can not find one anywhere.

On most 110 mods there was what they called a lint trap at the bottom of the wash basket.You can;t see it without taking the basket out (ya I know dum) you will need special tool to remove basket.that filter has now been replaced by whirlpool with 4 little plugs and the so called filter is removed.You can clean the old one and unit will be fine..for that job I would say to get a pro as it takes me about 2 mins to open and will save you as a home owner a whole lot of headaches..Hope I helped and Thanks for voting

Just a note that whirlpool made that machine.

Gasket for dryer lit catcher is coming off

The gasket on the lint filter is not very important, but you can get a replacement lint filter. There is a screw at the center bottom area of the lint filter area which can catch on the gasket. If you replace it with a shorter screw or remove it, grind it down a bit, and replace it you will help avoid a repeat condition.

Our machine works 3 minutes - and then 10 minutes it does not

The usual suction problem with these things is related to a clogged lint filter. I had the same problem as you with my carpet being completely soaked. Try checking the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use). There is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter on the under side. Try flipping open the little door and you will probably find it clogged with hair and carpet fibre. Clean it out and hopefully you will have suction again.

It's an auto-clean internal lint filter. Lint is trapped from water circulating through the filter during the wash cycle. During the drain cycle it's backwashed and the lint goes down the drain.
