Lay drain hose down, and drain it into a bowl or bucket, if door still does not open, then you have another prob.
Please rate my solution.

Pump is possibly blocked. Unplug then remove lower rear panel (2 screws) and disconnect wire loom and hoses. Slide pump unit to left and lift out. Open pump (3 screws) to clear blockage and also ensure that hoses are clear while pump is removed. Re-connect ensuring that hoses are straight and not kinked!! select spin programme ad this should fix the problem. If not then you pipes may be blocked under the sink.

How do i open my door on the washing machine it has finished the programme but wont open and washing is still in the machine


If all the water has drained away. POWER OFF. Lid has to be removed. slide arm down inside of front panel to door lock and rease it. A new door lock would be required. An engineer can do this

Door will not open have wash cycle


Switch off, put in spin/drain cycle and switch back on; check water is fully drained and then check filter. If not all drained, lower hose to ground level and drain to a bowl.

My hotpoint ultima has stopped halfway through a wash and has the word door flashing.


It happened on our machine. The soloution to this for me was to take the lid off (two screws). Unplugged from mains. I found the connector to the door had vibrated off and was just hanging loose. Plugged it back in and it worked straight away.Door opens as normal.
Don't forget to look in the manual for how to get the door open in an emergency

Washing machine door wont open - hotpoint


Hi,
Never reach inside the washing machine with it connected to the mains. The door interlock is always live.
There are several reasons why a Hotpoint door could be jammed shut.
•A broken door catch or door frame where the door catch screws in (they are rubbish on many Hotpoints - always breaking) you can sometimes get the door open if you push the door firmly in as you open it
•If there is water still inside the washing machine, then the door wont open either on these Hotpoint washing machines (not on some others though) If this is the case, when you try to open the door the ****** won't try to move down at all. You can open the door usually if you drain the machine. (only applicable with door interlocks that have a rubber pressure hose attached to them)
•A faulty door interlock
•The pressure chamber can be blocked on some earlier Hotpoint washing machines which gives the same effect as having water in the machine. Basically the washer "thinks" there is water in when there isn't. This would require the washing machine being stripped down to remove and clean the pressure chamber bottle. This cause is only applicable to washing machines where a small rubber hose is connected to the door interlock. This hose allows the door mechanism to be locked and unlocked by air pressure activated by water rising inside the pressure chamber bottle attached at the other end on the tub. Gunge can block the very small aperture where the pressure hose fits to the pressure chamber bottle.

Cannot open door


f5 means a blockage. you will need to drain it by putting the drain hose lower than the machine to syphon it out into a basin. then you can check the filter for the cause.

WF860 drum filling with water


Normally I would think that the problem is with the drain system (faulty pump or clogged lines), but you told me that also "When the washing machine is not bein.g used the drum slowly starts to fill with water!!" therefor I think it can be a dafective inlet valve or a faulty control assembly.
In either case, you will need a technician to fix this.
