The filter is located inside the dryer at the back of the drum. There are two holes that you can pull on to release the filter.

Here is a YouTube video that shows where the filter is located.

Hotpoint wf210 filter location?


Thanks for using FixYa. The filter is located under the panel of front door in the bottom of the machine. You need to pull the panel out and you will find the filter there. Before opening the filter prepare a bowl and a floor cloth to avoid flooding.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Spin cycle not draining

Hi-ya Brian
Probably blocked filter.
To locate and clean, remove rear panel altogether, locate large black hose at bottom of drum, remove from drum, and you will find the filter located inside the hose.
Check drain hose is not blocked also.

Clothes come out soaking wet seams like it doesn't spin out the w

There are 3 possible places to look for filters as each machine is made differently –
1 If machine has a square flap fitted on the front filter maybe located behind this.

2 It could be located behind the front lower kick panel (remove panel to see).
3 Located inside the sump hose, this is the hose that is attached to the bottom of the
main tub.

Try this:
The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Where is the drain filter and the spin rinse sensor located on

Have not heard of a part called a "spin rinse sensor". Drain filter is located behind the small access door at the bottom left on front of the machine. Use small hose there to drain remaining water out of pump and hoses, then unscrew the big thing on the right side (end of the filter).

Yes there is a filter, it can be found in one of two locations.
check to see if there is a removable plastic trim at the front of the washer, if there is then the filter could be located there..
It has a round black cover, which you unscrew anti clockwise to remove.
If no filter located there, then you need to remove lower rear cover of washer, locate large black hose on right, and undo clip and remove hose, be careful because there will be water in it.

Remove plastic filter and ball, clean and replace, making sure you refit hose securely.

Test for leaks before refitting panel.
Plz rate my solution.
