Question about Hotpoint First Edition WMA22 Front Load Washer
I Have a first editon hotpoint wm51 front load washing machine i have not had it long and i recently put it on a cycle but it cut the electric of then when i put it back on put the wash on as normal and went out shopping when i got in the wash was still on and hadnt moved very much thru the cycle and it continues to do the same it fills with water and dosent go thru the cycle or it clicks thru but the washer does nothing it leaves the water in the machine and i have no idea how to fix it we have tried leaving it a couple of days and we took of one of the waste pipes to check if its blocked but we have no idea what to do we dont know where the filter is there is nothing on the front at the bottom on this machine and we dont no where it could be blocked as that is what it seems to us.Also for a while now one the wooly wash setting the end spin has not been working but the orthers were b4 so i dont know if that was part of it breaking? Also a few people have said it could be the programer but this again means nothing to me pls help me!
I have the same machine and had the same problem. It turned out that the outflow trap which contains a plastic ball had filled up with junk out of pockets etc and also with strands of fabric from cloth nappies. If you remove the drain hose assembly(unplug the machine first!!) by unscrewing the jubilee clips on the hoses(this is inside the rear panel of the machine at the bottom) you can rmaove the outfloe trap take the ball out and empty out all the junk. Check that the hoses are clear as well and then check no junk remains where the part attaches to the bottom of the drum.
Put everything back together and run the machine for a full cycle with no clothes in it this should remove any left over bits of junk.
I have had to do this four or five times in the two years I have had this machine but it runs fine and washes perfectly until too much jnunk is in the trap, then it has the same symptoms you describe, wont finish the cycle, wont spin. On one occasion it poured water out of the powder tray, again same problem!!
If the machine has stopped full of water you will have to abort the programme unplug the machine, plug it back in then open the door catching the water in a large container then follow the procedure above. Water will drain from the hoses when you take them off have some towels handy!! Good Luck, Al from Manchester
