Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer
Clean the drain filter ( It says its self cleaning but its not).
On my Hotpoint Aquarius WD440 the procedure is as folows:
1) Drain as best as possible, switch off electrics at socket
2) Remove the plastic panel at the back of the machine
3)Locate the large diameter short black flexi drain hose on the right hand side
4)Slacken the screw on the TOP jubilee clip (The one holding the hose to the drum ) until the rubber hose can slide off
5) The plastic filter is inside the end of the hose. Remove it, disassemble and clean it - then reassemble it remembering to re-insert the ball inside the filter
6) Put the filter back in the hose, there are 2 slots which will locate on two ribs on the drum
7) Refit the hose and re-tighten the jubilee clip.

Plug off the wall. Open up behind the machine. Check to see if any wires loose. See that the wires from the control panel to the motor are plugged in tight. Vibration from the machine could loosen the wires and give the display wrong readings, or disrupt the run.

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged
drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and
remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower
front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs,
you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this
helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
