Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer

Open Question

I've just had my hotpoint wml760 fixed, it is 5 months old so I called hotpoint out. He found a black rubber disc stuck in the pump, its about 2cmx4mm.Its always made a strange noise from new when pumping out.Is it possible its a waste piece of rubber that got in the pump when it was manufactured? Has anyone any experience of this? The rubber disc is not anything my family or I recognise. Thanks, Stephanie

First of all try cleaning the filter inside the back as described by others if this does not work there is a filter in the top. how you clean this is quite easy. all you do is remove the top of the machine by undoing the 2 screws at the back then pull top top backwards when you have removed the top you well see a large metal casing on the left if you are looking from the the back of the machine the filter is in there to remove the casing you pull the small pipe off then undo 5 star headed screws then gently pull the casing off noteing that there is a large pipe at the front when you have remover the casing you will see the filter (the small pipe you removed at the start fits on this filter) clean the filter then put it all back together.

Several possibilities here.
First and fore most is the drum support or main drum bearigs are failing., more likely to be drum support
The pieces of plastic you refer to are from inside the outer drum, because what is happening is the inner drum is catching the outer drum, and breaking the plastic inside.
You are going to have to strip it down to determine the exact cause, what I expect you will find is that the alloy 3 legged drom support has corroded away,a nd the drum has come loose.

Hope this helps you solve your problem

Have you checked the filter? even if the pump is o/k, if the filter is blocked, it will not empty..
If filter clear, then you have a more serious problem.
Hope this helps.

more than likely the rear bearing has gone bad and when a load is applied the difference in weight distribution causes the knocking.

Philips Avance Juicer 1871 has just completely stopped while juicing lemons - its been cleaned and nothing is stuck, what should I do? Its only 3 months old.


Push the reset button underneath - this worked with mine when the same happened to me; I only realised it was there after changing the fuse, which didn't fix it. I turned it over and found the button and voila!

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 nice pl for the free help!

o k find the acess panel in the front or back then follow this procudure most likely there is something jamming the pump look on the back and you might see an access panel remove it and you will see a large hose coming down from the tub.Now the washer will still be full of water.There are three ways to deal with this the best way is to get a shop vac.remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vac the water out,the second is to get a pair of radiator hose clamps from the auto parts store and clamp the large hose as close to the tub as possible ,the third is you can get a bucket remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and getting as close to the floor as possible let the water drain in the bucket .after that put some towels around the pump.Remove the clamp and slide the large Rubber boot off the pump look in the pump for foreign objects jamming the impeller blades and for broken blades if broken replace the pump.feel in the boot for same as pump .Then reassemble if nothing found then go check drain hose.

this worked for me:
First empty the machine by lowering the hose at the rear to ground level into a container. Take off the white plastic cover on rear at bottom. You will see black rubber hose connected to barrel of machine in right hand corner. Undo the silver screw on the band securing the hose. (Biggest band). You can now pull the hose down to reveal a "table tennis like" ball. Lift it out carefully and you will probably find an obstruction like a coin or similar. I found a hairgrip but it was enough to stop the ball functioning. DO NOT TAKE OFF THE WHITE HOSE CLIPS
Comment by pulmicort, posted on Feb 02, 2008 Further to my comments re clearing scrap from table tennis ball after code F4. Machine started ok but then F5 came up. Had to take the pump off and apart to reveal broken hairclip actually seized in pump. If you are handy at all this is simplicity itself.
Slide pump to left and lift and it comes clear. Take off 2 black hoses only where connected to main machine. Pull off electrical connection. Pump and hoses lift out easily. 3 screws open the pump. Clean any obstruction and reassemble. A 30 minute operation.
