Well..that can be from the inside of the feeder hoses...

turn off water in back..

disconnect both hoses(most likely hot side)..

take them to shower/sink(utility type) and rinse them out..

might need to use a powerful stream to flush em.

then, reconnect, and run a cycle with only hot or cold(to test which one is causing the problem).

usually that black material is from inside of hoses.

can be from lines down below, so you may need to do same for those, but check feeder hoses first.

Washer leaks


the door seal is gone check around the inside of it for a tear
you can slide a bit of newspaper under it and run a cycle on

then pull out the paper and you can see what part of the machine its coming from
if its near to the front its prob the door seal

quite easy to change by heating it up before fitting
do the drum end first

E15 water is draining but clothes still sodden,


The problem is your pump or filter is blocked.
Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.
And rate me plz……………………….

Water still leaking


If the water is running down the front from underneath the drawer, then I would say that the hose is blocked from the dispenser into the drum.
You need to remove top cover, locate large black hose from dispenser into drum, feel and manipulate it to free any blockage of soap powder..
If the water still does not go into the drum, then you are going to have to remove hose to clear blockage.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

My Hotpoint Aquarius WF210 washing machine drum is not rotating


I think the belt has come off or has been damaged.

To open the machine slide out the machine. On the back panel lower 1/3 you will see a plastic panel remove the screws and the panel will come away. Inside you will see the belt. I suspect you will need to reattach the belt of remove it and buy a replacement.
