Hotpoint WMA76 - been on a normal wash cycle but wont spin to drain water - cycle finished, drum full of water and cant empty. How do we empty it to open machine?

Remove drain outlet hose from point where it discharges into waste pipe, and lay the hose down into a bucket or bowl, this should let the water syphon out, enabling you to open the door.

My machine has stopped working..I need to drain the water out...where will the drain pipe be on WT741 Hotpoint please...Thank you

The drain outlet hose is located at the bottom rear left of washer.
Once you have got the water out, I suggest you check the pump filter.
Remove the lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose from bottom of drum at right side.
Clean filter inside the hose.
Remove black hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
Please rate my solution.

Hotpoint wma30 can hear water going into drawer but it's going out into waste and not staying the drum,the machine has been on it's side

This is most likely due to having the height of the drain hose too low in the drain pipe so the water siphons out as the machine tries to fill up. This will eventually lead to an error displaying saying that the machine was not able to fill with enough water in the 6 minutes allowed by the on board controller in the Whirlpool.

The solution is to measure the height of the top of the arch of the drain hose or direct connecting point to a drain and make sure that his is at least 32 inches and no mort than 36 inches from the floor.

Hotpoint aquarius ultima 1000, when wash cycle is comple the rinse cycle wont start and displays message check outlet pipe which i have done but it seems to be clear as i can syphon water from the machine...

It sounds as though the pump is not draining the water out.
If you have checked outlet pipe and it is clear, then you need to check the filter, if there is no filter at front of m/c, then remove the rear panel, and unfasten the large black hose that goes to bottom of drum, remove filter and clean, check pump at same time.
Watch out for water from the drum.
Refit filter and hose and test.
Plz rate my suggested solution, and feel free to leave a comment.

Hotpoint wf860 - H2O Error Code - Machine is asking for water but draining it straight out

Check that your outlet pipe rises above the stated height on the back of the machine (about 3/4 of the way up). If it is too low, it will siphon the water out of the drum. If you're not sure what height it should be at, raise the top of the pipe (ie where it bends back into the outflow pipe) above the top of the machine (if you have room) or as high as you can. It must be above the height of the drum.

Good Luck
