SOURCE: Machine stops in Rinse & Spin Cycle & leaks water

suspect problem is that water is not draining fast enough so when machine gets to spin there is too much water present which gets thrown up thro thew soap drawer. check the filter. on many hotpoint filter is not obvious. at back, take off bottom panel. you will see a large dia hose going from bottom of machine to pump. undo this hose at the tub end and the filter is inside it. be carefull. if you havn\'t managed to drain, a lot of water will come out. if this doesn\'t work, get back to me if you want

SOURCE: Not draining

it will be the pump they have a small fan inside them they get weak and with the pressure of the water they stop spinning which doesnt push your the water through the motor fast enough to drain properly replace and you will see the difference

SOURCE: Soap powder remains in the soap compartment

Depending on which compartment the powder is remaining in, it could be low water pressure causing the problem.
If it is taking some down, but not all the powder, then try putting the powder towards the front of the compartment.
If all else fails then I suggest you get one of these dispenser balls that you put straight in the drum with the washing.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

SOURCE: white residue om dark clothes

Even if you use liquid detergent, if you put too many clothes in the washer, or too much detergent. It has happened to me before.

My housemate washed two garments in my WT540 AQUARIUS HOTPOINT MACHINE and now water is stuck in the drum and not moving. The door is locked. How do I wash out the water so I can get those two garment


something has blocked the pump I susspect, turn off the machine!!! there should be a small cover or door at the base of the machine, have a baking tray and large towel ready to collect the water, open the pump cover place the tray as close as possible and if you have a small tube inside then remove the plug and drain the water to the tray.if its just the screw cap then unscrew the cap behind the cover anti clockwise, water may begin to empty so be ready to either screw the cap back in or replace the stopper as the water in the machine will fill the tray several times, when all the water is empty check the pump is clear by looking into the hole the water flowed from, remove any obstrustion ( if you have the tube you will also have a screw cap to access the pump filter) when obstuction is cleared, screw caps back in and put stopper in, switch the machine on and select a spin cycle,let it finish and end, this should sort it out.

Why does my washing comes out with stains on it.... they weren't there when it went into the wash...


yes sometimes ink pens can be washed when we are not aware it was in someones pocket. I use straight ammonia and a cloth to clean my washing machine drum a couple times a year because these things have happened to me before. The ammonia will cut the grime and pen stains out of the drum. Then take a squirt bottle and fill it with white vinegar and squirt all around inside the drum of the machine. Run a wash without any clothes with the hottest water to clean the drum and clear out the stains. Do this to the dryer also and clean out the filters. Take the dispensers out from the washing machine and clean those too and your cleaning is done for a while. Apparently the ink has been in the drum of your washing machine and putting the color into your clothes. You can bleach out the white clothes that turned blue. Use the stain remover for colored clothes. Hope this will help you.

White residue on black clothing


I am sure you did not wash dark clothes with white, right?

How old is the washing machine?
Do you feel/see any white particles in the basket of the machine, when the cover is open, and it dries out inside?-- when you wipe your hand inside (the dry machine), do you pick up white residue?

What type of soaps are you using?-- any chance they could be causing the residue?

How hard is your water? (Do you have a water softener in the water system?

Please tell us more about your circumstances.

Water level in washer


The basket floats. The washer relies on a circulation pump to wash the clothes. THEORY OF OPERATION PAGE 22

White marks on my clothes.


Are you using TOO much powder? And is the machine set to the correct rinse tempature? You mention white stuff, does it look like undissolved washing powder? Or fabric softner? Possibly try liquid detergent and see if the problem continues. And follow the recommended amounts of detergent for each wash load, and the tempature settings. And of course the water levels. All of the above are crucial to insure you get maximum preformance and utility out of your machine, with the results you expect. Let us know what you find. Kindest Regards, Slats.

Clothes coming out spotted


Hi Residue builds up inside of washing machines for all sorts of reasons. Many detergents and fabric softeners can leave filmy layers behind. Hard water can cause spotting on both plastic and metal thus ending up with spots on your washing, how to resolve this follow the instructions, 1, use vinegar a bottle and place your machine on the hottest wash cycle and let it run through a full cycle, when finished use a paper towel with vinegar to clean the inside, set machine on a rinse cycle, this may need to be repeated but will solve it, also use gels and liquids instead of powders and descale etc.

WF860 doesn't clean the clothes at all!


Lack of water in wash cycles. possibly due to blocked filters in water valves where hoses connect to machine or faulty water valve, normally cold inlet is the main problem
