How do I find the filter on the Hotpoint Ultima WT960P? I want to clean it, but it isn't under the kick strip - or at least if it is, the cover tells me it's an electrical panel...

If I am right this machine is fitted witha self cleaning pump and does not have a filter. If there is no filter under the kickstrip then this is correct. many Hotpoints are now made this way but yiu may still have one so check under the kickstrip.

The pressure switch is stuck and the machine thinks it is full of water. You need to remove the top, look for the pressure switch and unplug the hose on it and blow air through the hose. Then replace the hose on the switch. It looks like this:

On a hotpoint ultima wt741. how does the plastic outer tub separate so that the inner steel drum can be removed so as to replace the bearings?

2 tubs used on these-one has screw going around the middle of the tub to split in half/the other is a sealed tank which means you have to replace tub-if you have a filter under the front kick strip then its the sealed tub

How to clean the filter

the dryer filter is in the dryer box on top of the drum, under the lid of the machine at the rear, sometimes has a grey hose going into it, the box will have to be removed and split to access it.
the wash filter will be either at the front of the machine behind the kick plate or at the rear behind the lower panel attached to th bottom of the drum.

Wt960p hotpoint

The error F05 indicates that the pressure switch is jammed on full.

The only thing you can do your self is to check the filter is not blocked.
Remove lower rear panel of washer, locate and remove large black hose fatened to bottom of tub, watch out for water running out.
Remove and clean plastic filter inside hose.
Refit filter and hose, test for leaks.
If problem still persists, then could be faulty pressure switch or blockage in the pressure system.

Let me know if you require any firther info.
Pleas rate my solution.

You will probably need to clean the pump filter.
To access the pump filter,remove the lower plastic panel at front of washer, there you will see the filter, unscrew the cover anti-clockwise, remove filter and clean.
This should clear the fault.
If it does not , let me know, and i can can tell you other things to look for.
Please rate my fixya solution.
