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.

Please help the washer fills up and turns the


Seems like a blockage or maybe pump worn out. Fill machine and take grey outlet pipe on rear of machine. Place this pipe as low as possible into a bowl. If water flows free from this pipe then your pipes are not blocked and most likely you will need to change your pump. Before you try this just put machine onto spin and ensure this will work when machine is almost empty

the problem here is the machine is not emptying when its supposed to, you will find it is stopping at the rinse cycles. there is a sump underneath the machine that needs to be emptied. From my experiences, 9 out of 10 hotpoints that i would of repaired with the same problem as you are having is usualy caused by using the color catcher sheets, they are a disaster.

I have a hotpoint aquarius 6kg washing machine, i need to cancel a progeamme and drain the washing machine as their is a sleeve caught in the door and water is coming out but don't know how to please...


hiya
if the model starts with wm then you should set the timer knob just before a spin setting and it will empty out.

if the model starts with wma,few or wf then you will have to hold in the start button as this will cancel the current cycle and should start to drain.

hope this helps

Washer will not spin


normally i would suggest changing motor carbons for hotpoint washers, but my experience is that the WMA motor armature is weaker than the carbons, normally if there is no connection fault a replacement motor is the answer 9 times out of 10, not a job for the amature
