Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF865 Front Load Washer
My clothes are coming out after a cycle covered in lots of dust/hair (http://snag.gy/l00Kb.jpg). Is there a filter on this machine that might need cleaning. If so, how to access?
My hotpoint is same you have to pull machine out then tip on side carefully then remove black sump pipe right by pump at Back machine clipped on so remove clip holing to drum and pump. Also the pressure sensor might be attached just unclip then clean filter out and put back clipping back on tight. Hotpoint have self cleaning pump on these models but has catch by pump that can get blocked only new models of hotpoint made this easier hope this helped :)

SOURCE: where is the filter to clean it
most of these filters are located at the back of the appliance.
Make sure power is disconnected first!!!
Unscrew the plate at the bottom rear of the appliance.
You will see, on the right hand side, a black corrugated hose that connects from the bottom of the drum to the drain pump.
On the drum end there will be a big metal clamp that you can unscrew. Once lose the hose should easily come off the drum. Inside this hose you will find a filter that may be full of fluff.
Reassembe the hose and make sure you tighten the clamp properly otherwise it will come off and flood everywhere on your next wash.

Thank you for your post, friend!
From what you are describing it sounds like the felt may have come off your Frigidaire dryer. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional to come out and properly repair your appliance. This would help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

If your washer has
developed a bad habit of snagging and/or tearing your clothes; before scrapping
your washer, try these few tips:
1) Check, by hand, the
smoothness of your washer. Look for any broken fins or roughness on the basket
surface. Replace, if necessary.
2) Reduce the size of your
loads. Heavy, cramped loads can cause a lot of friction which leads to tears.
3) Reduce the amount of
bleach used. Bleach can eat holes in clothing.
4) Verify water level is
not too low, especially during rinse cycle, where snags are more apt to occur.
5) Consider placing
delicates in a garment wash bag
6) Front load washers have
no center agitator, so they are less likely to tear clothes.
Please get back to us if
you have further query or else please accept the solution.
