Re: cycle

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.

Re: cycle

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.

My washing machine wont drain the water out before spin cycle it stops and turns off after wash so when you open the lid its still full of water

Hi just read your posting.Now you said in your posting it does not drain before the spin cycle, but does it drain before the rinse cycle?Does your machine stop and beep and show an error code in your LCD display or if you have the other model a series of lights?Have you tried advancing the cycle to spin and pushing the start button?Please reply with additional information and I can help you track down this fault.

No final spin

I haven't experienced that problem, but is it possible that the machine becomes unbalanced with the spinning load and then aborts the spin, so it doesn't finish? Has the machine been properly leveled during installation?

check that the outflow pipe is not blocked. Turn off power supply get a bucket ready, disconnect the outflow pipe from the u-bend under the sink and check that it is not blocked.
