You will have to unclog the pump. Unplugg the machine and tip it forward you should see the black hose that comes from the pump to the outlet. Take this hose off by loosening the clamp then you should be able to see that the pump is clogged. They sometimes get a small sock or lint that pluggs the up. Clear the clogg and the machine should work normal again usuall will take 15-20 min. to fix.

Hotpoint wd440 washer/dryer. 1st problem was it wouldn't drain so I cleared the pipe. Now the machine 'wash' light flashes during a wash. The washing machine doesn't seem to hold the water...


Make sure that the outlet of the pipe is at least as high above the floor as the top of the machine. If it is lower than the level of the water, it will just drain - there is no shut-off valve to stop it from doing this. Please rate this answer.

Fault code F05


If Hotpoint or Creda,
F05: possible draining (pumping off) problem, check the pump filter, or pump, outlet pipe, or U-BEND.

E15 code on display of Hotpoint ultima extra WD72.


E15 means that it is not draining fast enough. As well as checking the outlet pipes, check the filter leading to the pump. Disconnect the power and pipe. If possible take outside because there will be a residual amount of water. Remove the back panel, then disconnect the locking rings holding the tubes on. Your main target should be the big downflow rubber tube from the drum, in here is a plastic filter. In mine I found a child's sock... plus buttons...plus slime. Problem solved.

Hi hotpoint 7kg washing machine ultima digit washes fine and spins etc but i keep getting f05 flashing on display what do i do


Hi there usually the FO5 Problem is pump draining problem, check the U Bend under your sink for blockages also the outlet pipe for blockages, you may even need to take of the front lower panel and you should find a small pipe and you can clear and drain water from that also and clear of any bits. hope this helps

Hotpoint WD440 1400 Spin


There has been an unbalanced load and the machine could not spin
(see ‘Automatic Features’, Starting and Programmes).
Has the drain hose been installed correctly (see Installation)?
Are the drain hose, standpipe or undersink connections blocked?
Has ‘Rinse Hold’ option been selected? If so press the Rinse Hold button

drain hose make sure there are no kinks and the end is over the top of washer to drain this ensures that there is no back flush with drain pipe

clean the dispenser drawer regularly

Clean and dry the dispenser
drawer, syphons, grate and
fabric conditioner exit channel
(A). Also regularly clean the
outlet pipe area

Never force the machine door: this could damage
the safety lock mechanism designed to prevent
any accidental opening

Sounds like water pressure could be low or inlet pipe is kinked.

F04: possible filling or water level problem. Check water inlet pipe (or shut-off valve), or the outlet pipe, or the pump or pump filter if accessible (check for blockages or foreign objects). Also could be the water valve solenoid weak, causing filling to be too slow.

F05: possible draining (pumping off) problem, check the pump filter, or pump, outlet pipe, or U-BEND.

Don't forget to rate!

Hotpoint WD420 - Stuck in wash cycle


Suggestion: Plug off the wall first. Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Check out user's manual. Good luck. Also check if your inlet into the machine is not clogged.
