Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer

2 Answers

I think my waste filter/pump is blocked as it is not draining - I've removed the back panel and identified the pump, but how do I get to the filter. Is it an easy diy-fix for someone who only just knows the right end of a screwdriver? Cheers

You will find the filter located inside the large black hose on the bottom of drum, just remove hose to clean filter.

I have a Haier HWD1600 washer dryer combo that I am getting an error 2 on. It will not drain the water out and I have not been able to clear it for the past two months


Its a common error,
Error message:Drain error, water can be not drained fully within the required drain time
Reason 1. Pump filter is blocked.
Solution 1. Please open and clean the pump filter. (Filter access door is on the bottom right, at floor level of the washing machine)
Step 1.Push a flat blade screwdriver into the slot on the filter cover and pull it open ,do not use excessive force.(Fig 1).
Step 2.Remove the rubber hose from its clip and stand a suitable container under it, remove the bung to drain the water (Fig 2-3)
Step 3.Replace the bung and fit it back into its clip (Fig 4-5).
Step 4. Unscrew the filter and rinse it under running water, replace it and close the flap(Fig 6-7-8).
Caution:
1. The filter must be in place during operation, ensure it is in place after cleaning to avoid leakage.
2.Place a container under the drain pump filter, to collect any excess water that may come out of the drain pump when the filter is removed.

Reason 2. Drain hose end is higher than 100cm above the floor level.
Solution 2. Please adjust the height of drain hose to 80-100cm above the floor.

Reason 3. Drain hose is blocked or twisted.
Solution 3. Please check and clean the drain hose for blockage.

Reason 4. Drain hose is too long, or water is back filling from waste water pipes.
Solution 4. Remove any extension to the original drain hose.
Ensure the highest part of the drain hose is nearest the washing machine.Check the waste water pipes in the building are clear of any obstructions and flow freely.

Whirlpool awo d 4305 s draining problem clothes left soaking


Ok, replaced waste pump - slight improvement but clothes still bad... only just seen your solution Mike!!! I didn't even notice a spin control board there, I will check/swap it tomorrow as I've only just put everything back in place(incl. kitchen cupboards etc!).
Is this a common problem with this model?? There's a mountain of appliances near where I work and I'm free to take whatever I can find, I'd say some people just buy a new machine without even checking if the filter's blocked looking at some of these appliances!
Thanks all!

My dishwasher runs through the cycle but doesn't empty. It looks like rice in the bottom when you take the filter out. Could the pump be blocked & how can I repair it. Is it possible to **** out with a...


Unfortunately it is important that the dishes are rinsed before they are placed into the dishwasher as the primary job is to get your dishes sterilized and cleaned.
So please try and remote off as much of particles by showing the dishes to the wash tap or use a wiper to clean off the food particles.
In all machines there are drains to which the drain pump is fitted and there is a filter but if the dirt level is too much the filter and also the drain pump will be clogged.
You can remove the pump and back-flush using a good spray, clean the filter by removing and flushing with brushing.
Once this is cleaned the pump must work and drain the waste water.

Dishwasher won't drain. Whirlpool quiet wash plus. I found the filter and removed the screws, but filter/screen is on tight, I don't want to break it and i am not sure where to remove from.


I can't solve removing the filter, if you have removed all the correct bits it prb just needs a stiff pull however I think the problem is more likely to be a blockage in the outlet pipe or the pump. If you can hear the pump trying to drain get a long piece of stiff wire (coathanger) and push down outlet pipe (the one connected to the dishwasher) to check if it's blocked. Also make sure the trap in the waste pipe isnt blocked. I hope that helps regards

Water is not getting drained from the botom of the machine


Hi,

There are several possibilities as to why water isn't draining from your washer:

1. Blocked drain filter
The filter is usually at the bottom of the wash compartment. You didn't state which model of dishwasher you have, so please refer to your user manual for instructions for cleaning your filter. If you don't have a manual, please post back here with your dishwasher brand and model number for information on cleaning your filter and where to download a manual if one is available.


2. Blocked/kinked waste hose
Check the waste outflow hose at the back of the washer for any kinks or other damage. Also remove the hose where it attaches to your sink (or waste outlet) and check for any blockages both in the end of the hose and at the sink attachment. If there is a lot of dirt in the hose, it may be blocked somewhere further back.

3. Blocked waste disposal / sink trap / waste outflow
Make sure your sink is draining efficiently. Clean as necessary

4. Faulty waste pump
If all of the above check out, you may have a faulty pump. Please post back for further advice regarding this after completing the above checks.

BElectric

Water is clogged in the bottm of the unit. how do I clear the drain?


Hi,

The drain filter is clearly visible at the bottom of the wash compartment but there are several possibilities as to why there is still water in the bottom of your washer:

1. Blocked drain filter
At the bottom of the wash compartment, there is a fine mesh grille and a plastic cylinder which protrudes from it. Grip the plastic cylinder, twist anti-clockwise and pull it upwards. To clean it, remove any debris from the cylinder, rinse then replace in reverse order of the above.

2. Blocked/kinked waste hose
Check the waste outflow hose at the back of the washer for any kinks or other damage. Also remove the hose where it attaches to your sink (or waste outlet) and check for any blockages.

3. Blocked waste disposal / sink trap / waste outflow
Make sure your sink is draining efficiently. Clean as necessary

4. Faulty waste pump
If all of the above check out, you may have a faulty pump. Please post back for further advice regarding this after completing the above checks.

Just hooked up my new front loading washer and door won't open. It seems like the machine thinks it is midcycle ...but, it has never been used. Manuals are inside closed washer. Have disconnected and...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The Bosch washers have always had an emergency door release, it is much easier to access on the new models though, they`ve placed it in the lower service panel.

Below I`ve attached my instructions for accessing the drain pump however, the latch release is located in the same place.

Once you`ve accessed the pump area via my instructions you`ll see a plastic "pull cord". If you pull it the door should unlock.

Let me know if you have nay trouble. Good luck.

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker at your service panel...safety first**

Start by removing the bottom front panel which provides access to the drain pump and manual door lock release.

1) Carefully lift and block (up with a 2x4 or egual block of some type) front of washer to provide access to screws along the bottom which are angled slightly.

2) Remove three (3) screws, then carefully slide panel down and away from washer.

3) You should now see the pump access filter to your right, as such...

20a94b8.jpg
4) The pump has a small tub connected to it which will allow you to try and drain the water from it before removing the filter.

5) The filter will unscrew counter clockwise...careful it likely has water in it. This is where a wet-dry shop-vac comes in handy....or a nearby floor drain.

6) Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code.

7) After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.

8) Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access panel off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.
Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "fixya" and good luck.

Need to clean pump of bosche logix 1600 express. How? Need manual too. It keeps beeping at me ''Pump blocked?'' and I have to drain it into a bucket.


Do the following.

  1. Switch off the machine, unplug or disconnect the mains power to the machine and turn off the water supply to the machine.
  2. Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
3. Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that depending on the machine type you may get a lot of water coming out of the filter when you remove it if the machine has not drained successfully. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood.
4. Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked.
5. Also check that the main waste drain pipe, if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required.
6. Reconnect the power and switch the machine on.
If the problem persists then do the following.
7. Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power.
8. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational.
9. Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage.
10. Makes sure the pump appears clear and that the impeller looks in good condition.
11. Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on.
12. If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.

Pump is item #23 and filter is #24. The main pump is accessible from the rear or under the machine.
