It sounds like you have a partial blockage somewhere..
Remove rear panel.
Remove large black hose onto drum.
Check and clean filter inside hose.
Remove drain hose, and check for restriction here as well.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Fabric Softener Does Not Drain


25569074-ineink0kisfnom0atbkujjcx-3-0.jpg
compartment 1: Detergent for pre-wash
(powder)

Before pouring in the detergent, make sure that extra compartment 4 has been removed.

compartment 2: Detergent for the wash cycle
(powder or liquid)

Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately prior to the wash cycle start.

compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener should not overflow from the grid.

extra compartment 4: Bleach
! Do not use Hand Wash Detergent because it may form too much foam.

Cleaning the detergent dispenser
Remove the dispenser by raising it and pulling it out (see figure).
Wash it under running water; this operation should be repeated
frequently.

Water not drane setisfewctori Cloth not dry


There are 2 possible reasons for this .The drain for the washer may be kinked at the back preventing the water being pumped out . The pump is virtually a water circulator and not a pressure pump so any obstruction will keep water in the washer.. Next --the spin cycle may be to slow for the water to be spun out of the clothes. Check the load is not above the recommended weight as this makes the spin cycle slow. IT is better to do 2 washes rather than to cram it all into 1 wash. Check the filter at the pump as they tend to block up with lint and other gunk from the clothes and the water may be unable to get to the pump Powdered detergents are 90% clay( fine as talc powder and used to carry the detergent) and this settles out in the lower parts of a machine so if you use powder I would recommend changing to liquid

Upper tray doesn't clean, lower tray is fine. Also, lot of soap sticks in the soap compartment after the cycle. Thanx.


Hi


If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound. If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve.

Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

Hotpoint WMA74 does not pump out after programmed


No test available other than:
Remove pump - check motor will turn by rotating impellor. There is a slight resistance then moves freely, then slight resistance and freely again. This is correct for this machine. worth checking there is no hair, elastic band or other obstruction around the impellor fins and shaft whilst the pump is out.
There is no spin cycle so you have to use rinse & spin, which means if the pump is shot you need to empty the machine each time :(
Worth checking lower filter as stated and blowing down the drain hose whilst the pump is off to check for obstructions.
The resolution to my problem was a new pump - £20.
All working fine again now !

Water in Fabric Softener Compartment


As for the softener compartment, powder tends to overflow and block the three drain holes. It needs removing and thoroughly cleaning out, i use cotton buds and lots of hot water.
