Hotpoint First Edition 1200 Spin - lint tray?

My washing machine isn't draining properly and is probably blocked with dog fur from washing their blankets. Where is the lint tray? I've taken off the bottom panels front and back and can find nothing!
Thanks.

I have a hotpoint bwm129 1200 spin and I can't drain the water out of the washing machine. I have taken out the filter as it was clogged, cleaned up but the rest of the water has not come out of the d


You should be able to drain the water out by laying the drain hose down into a bowl. Does the pump function properly on final spin, that usually clears the water to allow the door to open. Parts are obtainable from Hotpoint Spares.co.uk.

Does the Hotpoint First Edition FEW 12 Front loader washing machine have a filter that needs emptying? if so where is it?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Yes. All machines, as far as I am aware, will have filters- to stop 'foreign objects' from fouling the drain pump mainly!
Following are my generic/standard instructions for filters (or lint trays as some call them).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Have put a wash on today but drum won't empty, have no idea why this has happened?


There are many reasons why it won't drain 1 the pump has gone. 2 is something is blocked in the pump. 3 the drain is blocked so won't drain. To see if it will drain turn machine on put on spin and press start if it still won't drain but making a sound like it is trying you need to pull out machine and check drain hose and drain for blockages. But if pump making no sound then the pump has probably gone and needs replacing.

Check the filter and the actual pump itself for blockage.unless you have already done so, also pump itself could be faulty.

Wf310 hotpoint aquarius washing machine wont spin or drain


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!

Our hotpoint WMA22 washer will fill with water and wash but will not drain.i have lowered the drain hose to almost ground level and it will empty the water, and then will spin. In your opinion is it the...


Sounds like a blocked filter to me.
Remove lower rear panel of washer, remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum, remove and clean filter inside hose, check pump for blockage at same time. You probably will not need to replace any parts

Bad smell coming from washing machine


It probably is related to your drain outlet, depending on the set-up, I would suggest you remove drain hose and clean the place where the drain hose enters the drain system, if possible, clean all associated pipework

Goes to spin cycle, then just hums


I believe your washer has a drive coupling. This coupling has two rigid halves with a rubber spider between them, with time the things break... I can speak from experience. Unplug your washer and with the help of someone lean it back to get a look at the coupling (you might even notice a small pile of the black rubber from the coupling) If this is it you can fix it without much issue or cost @ $20 or so.

Hope this helps,

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!


hiya
first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj
