Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
Just had F5 blockage warning on hotpoint aqualtis. Removed front panel on the bottom and unscrewed filter, cleaned and replaced. checked all outlet pipe was clear. Laid washing machine on to its back and removed black pipe from pump and checked and finally removed the other end of the pipe that joins to the drum. large ball acts a valve and a missing sock was found in the drum end! replaced all parts and washing machine works a treat! before the f5 warning the machine leaked from the door on a couple of occasions, no problem since and may have been a build up of water finding its only way out.

Thanks to the first solution stopped panic after seeing F5 fault, opened the filter and found a part of the shirt collar plastic film blocking the pump.

Also if your machine is newly fitted and the waste pipe on your walll is not high enough it will cause the same probleb as the pump will fail to form a syphon. Probably worh checking. Minimum height is usually mentioned in theinstruction manual.
