This washer has a self cleaning pump, so if it is not working, then suggests a blockage somewhere, or the pump is not working at all.
If you follow the drain hose at the rear of the washer, this is connected direcly to the pump.

My Hotpoint WML560 won't run a full cycle.

Is there a no spin button that has been pressed. Also some delicate cycles have no spin as part of the program.

Where is the filter?

My hotpoint is same you have to pull machine out then tip on side carefully then remove black sump pipe right by pump at Back machine clipped on so remove clip holing to drum and pump. Also the pressure sensor might be attached just unclip then clean filter out and put back clipping back on tight. Hotpoint have self cleaning pump on these models but has catch by pump that can get blocked only new models of hotpoint made this easier hope this helped :)

Water won't drain away from the drum. I think I may have a blocked filter. How do I access to clean the filter on a Hotpoint WT960G washing machine please. Many thanks.

Most Hotpoint washers do not have a customer accessable drain cleanout. Also, it may be a full or partial pump failure. Replacing the pump assembly will improve washer performance.

Replacement pump is about 20 Pounds delivered, and can be self installed quite easily.

I have hotpoint aqurieus WML560 will not drain how do i do this manualy

To get rid of any water still in washer, lay drain outlet hose to floor level, and the water should run out through gravity into a bucket or similar.
Once empty, remove the lower rear pamel of washer.
Remove large black hose on to pump.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
Please rate my solution.

My hotpoint wf540 on off switch flases and the

sounds like your water pump has failed??
Try cleaning the filter first, normally accessed at the bottom R/H side of unit at the front.
If not, replace water pump (approx £35 for part) good luck!
