  • Anonymous Mar 19, 2008

    a few hours after doing a wash, the machine (a Hotpoint First Edition 1200) starts to fill up very slowly with dirty water and after checking everything else and cleaning out all the waste pipes I decided to clean out the filter but can't seem to find it! Is there one? we live in an upstairs flat and have spoken to neighbours downstairs who are not experiencing any problems with waste water which makes me think it may be the washing machine. any ideas?

You mean the filter inside the machine(tub) or the one that's inline with the inlet hoses?

In most machines the filter is located under the panel in the bottom of the machine (the panel under the front door).
If u have manual refer; pull the panel out and you will find the filter there.

Before you open the filter keep a bowl & cloth to collect much water.

What is code message F02?


Repairing the F02 error code can usually be done without ordering parts. Tools needed to repair your whirlpool Duet F02 error code are towels and a quarter inch socket.
Tip the washer back at a 45 degree angle. On the bottom panel there are three or four screws, with the screws removed the panel will slide down and off. With the lower access panel now removed you will have access to the washers drain pump clean out.
With the water already bailed from the washer you can twist the filter head counter-clockwise to remove. Twisting the filter head counter-clockwise will loosen filter so it can be pulled out.
With the filter out clean and install it back into washer.
Run a quick cycle to ensure the washer is back up and running and the F02 error has disappeared. If the error comes back, it may require you to clean the drain pump filter again.

My LG front loader leaks from under the front left corner and the repair men can't figure it out and stop the leak.


Have you cleaned the filter out recently? If not, it may need cleaning. Use a flat -end screwdriver in the top of the front plinth to remove from the machine.filter should unscrew (have some towel to soak up a little bit of water). Wash out and replace. Make sure you have tightened it right up when you put it back. If you have cleaned the filter, then check you have tightened it right up.

Where is the filter to clean it


hi
most of these filters are located at the back of the appliance.

Make sure power is disconnected first!!!

Unscrew the plate at the bottom rear of the appliance.

You will see, on the right hand side, a black corrugated hose that connects from the bottom of the drum to the drain pump.
On the drum end there will be a big metal clamp that you can unscrew. Once lose the hose should easily come off the drum. Inside this hose you will find a filter that may be full of fluff.

Reassembe the hose and make sure you tighten the clamp properly otherwise it will come off and flood everywhere on your next wash.
