Where is the elusive filter located? I thought it was hiding under the flap thing at the bottom but I can't for the life of me work out where it is


If you were to Google "Hot point first edition FEW manual" using Firefox, the results will lead you to "for Hotpoint FEW washer - Laundry Appliances Manuals" at "laundry.manuals online.com>....> Hotpoint Washer".
Download a free copy of the instructions for Installation and Use for Hot Point First Edition Range User Manual.
I have looked through the manual and there is no direct evidence of a filter as such (common to other machines), but there are details of what maintenance should be followed to clean the machine - not too user friendly but may help.
If you do go to the manufacturers website (Hot point is an Indesit company) you will find that previous buyers have asked the same question as you)

My filter!!


First of all,lay the drain hose down to floor level and let the water run into a bucket or similar, this will empty the washer of water.
the filter is inside the large black hose on bottom of drum.
Undo hose, remove and clean filter
Refit filter and hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve your problem.
Good luck.

Where is the filter on Hotpoint first edition washing machine ?


Hi.
Some of these models, I believe, had a filter behind the front plynth. If nothing there then you will have to get to the back of the appliance.
Disconnect the power supply and remove the bottom back plate.
You will see a black hose that connects to the bottom of the drum and the other end connected to a drain pump.
With a few towels handy (make sure washing machine is empty!) unscrew the large clip holding the hose to the outer drum. Indide this hose you will find a filter. Remove, clean and refit.
Make sure hose is pushed firmly back on the outer drum and the clip fully tightened.

test with a small amount of water in the drum to make sure there are no leaks.

Hope this helps

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!


hiya
first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help
