Question about Hotpoint WMA58 Front Load Washer
Hi please can you help me i have a WMA58 it seems to go through all the cycle but won't empty i have checked the pipe and emptied it of any rubbish but it still won't empty the water out thanks
As you have probably found out, hotpoint washing machines do not have any customer accessible pump filters...
If you want to get on and fix this yourself you will need to get machine out and tip it up. have a look underneath. You will need tools etc.
1. Firstly check the power is off / disconnected.
**Next double check the power is off / disconnected.**
2. Check for obstructions inside the sump hose leading to the water pump. These machines have a filter/flap located in the sump hose which can get jammed up. See link http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=636775&brand=&model=WMA58&part=sump
3. My bet is that the pump itself is faulty. Check visually for blockages inside it - (do not dismantly)
For a replacement see the following for info on the pump. http://www.4hotpoint.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=640428&brand=&model=WMA58&part=pump
4. Finally I have heard of hotpoint wma's failing to pump water because the heater element is faulty -because water temp never reaches correct heat so programme halts.- but I cannot confirm this. To prove this put your machine on Final Spin - the first thing it does is empty the machine - no heating...
if it does then its probably the heater.
And don't forget to rate; thanks!

You will need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine. If there is no filter at the front, pull the machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure it lines up, or it won't reassemble correctly). Now push the boot back onto the fitting at the bottom of the drum where it came from and tighten up the jubilee clip, making sure that it is fitted correctly (it too may have a small slot out of it that fits around a protrusion on the bottom of the housing).
