I have a hotpoint ulitma wt741. my machine seems to overflow the water just filled the drum. i had to turn off the mini blue valve for cold water to stop the water overflowing. how can i fix this ?

To avoid confusion i`ll give you the senerios.Your washing machine was NOT in use and somehow it just fills with water over the day ,slowly filling up and never stops-this is the inlet valve u/s and water seeps,drip drip until the machine leaks-replace valve only answer.Or ,the machine is in use and water doesn`t stop filling up either on wash or rinses-can be valve not shutting off because valve is faulty,similar to above,this is rare but not unknown,or much more likely the air trap/filter is blocked up which is not telling the pressure switch to cut the power to the valve with the correct amount of water.IF the filter/air trap-a rubber hose with a large hose clip and a white looking chamber sprouting from the hoses r/h/side- is at the rear of the machine(to the right of the motor looking from the rear of the machine) this is where you should look first ,if your filter is at the front (r/h/s) i don`t know the answer to this part of the question.

Washing machine lint trap

There is no trap per say. The lint catcher is self cleaning when the water is pumped out. It sounds like you are overloading it and the clothes are hitting the agitator. Operation should be agitation by water movement not beat by the plastic fins, run a wash cycle hot water no clothes to flush things out and try smaller loads.

Diamond ring went through wash cycle

If there is no filter to be seen at the fron t of washer, then remove the rear cover, locate the large blkck hose fastened to bottom of drum, remove and check inside the hose, there is a good chance the ring could be trapped in the hose.
Good luck.

Where is the filter?

To find the filter you need to do the following steps. Find your lint trap. Lint traps in washing machines can be in the agitator (the large plastic piece in the center of the tub), at the top of the washer on the rim of the tub, or attached to the washing machine's drainage hose. Pull out the agitator tube to check for the lint trap. Peel any loose lint from the filter. Scrub away lint that doesn't peel off easily with a heavy-duty paper towel or a wet sponge. Feel your way around the top rim of the washing machine's basin. If you locate a trap, pull it straight out of the machine. Peel away loose lint and follow up with a wet sponge or heavy-duty paper towel. Check your machine's drainage hose for an attached lint trap. Remove the trap and peel the top layer of lint off. Rinse the trap in low-pressure, warm water. Reattach to the drainage hose. Check for and remove any lint or debris that may have dropped into the washing machine basin during the cleaning.

Lost my diamond wedding ring in washer. Where could it get stuck? My husband took the front off the washer, and opened the drain filter..nothing :( Could it get caught in the hose?

it could get caught in the water pump or between the water pump and hose outlet, it could be caught between the agitator and the washing machine tub or it could be in the **** Trap in the wall, since it's heavier than water it would be the most likely place. and if not there then the over fill tub on the sides.

Diamond Ring in my washer

Most plumbers ( if they know what they are doing ) will have a trap installed in the drain. It should just look like a U shape in the pipe before it goes into the sewer. Usually, and hopefully for your sake, objects of any weight will not make it out of the machine though. I know loose change rarely makes it out of the washer. It may be tucked in under the agitator (inpeller). Also check the clothing closely, it may have hung on when the chothes were taken out of the washer. Good luck.

p.s. I feel lucky when I find a quarter or two in the machine so i can about imagine how you will feel if you find it.
