SOURCE: where is the filter

filter should be checked regularly and is a pain to do on hotpoint. however, blocked filter would not cause leak.
remove small panel at bottom back.
you will see a large diameter hose running from tub to pump.
undo this hose at the tub end and you will find filter inside hose.
carefull, water will come out

The error code F03 indicates a problem with the pump out of the washer or a failure of the pressure switch that controls the water fill. This is a problem that you should have a technician diagnose and repair.

SOURCE: i got a hotpoint wmd940 and on a cycle it bleeps


If the door is closed, then the Door Lock micro switch may need replacing.

The switch can be tested by a technician bypassing it or reading impedance to see if micro switch is opening and closing.

Try first disconnecting power for a couple of minutes to reset the control board.

If you need to contact a technician call the number listed on the owners manual.

SOURCE: Hi there I have a Hotpoint

Hi Sheena from retired Englishman in SW France @ 21:51 Sun evening (nothing on TV!)

Sorry if this seems a silly question/answer but have you removed the dispenser completely and ensured that it is not blocked anywhere, especially the conditioner/softener drawer area? Normally the pre-wash and wash powders sit in open ended trays to drop straight into the drum but the conditioner does not. It is not allowed out until the right time- it has to be flushed/siphoned out by the water feed. A common problem is that the tube/pipe which is in this tray down which it siphons is blocked- possible by a mix of powder and conditioner. It is easy to accidentally let the powder spill into it when filling.
My advice is to pull the drawer completely out and give it a good clean out, especially the conditioner bit!
Dispensers are removed either by pulling almost all of the way out then 1) pressing down on the lip at the rear to clear or 2) releasing the clip underneath the dispenser or 3) by lifting upwards just as you are pulling it out, whichever is the way for your machine.
Hope this cures the leaking!
Best of luck,

John C

Hi my hotpoint washing machine wont stop spinning for some reason any ideas what is wrong

Very likely that the filter is blocked. Because the machine senses there is still water present it carries on spinning but the blocked filter is preventing the machine emptying. Turn off the power at the plug. The filter is usually mounted at the front near to the floor. Unscrew counter clockwise and be prepared for some water to leak out. Clean the filter under a tap, it will probably looked blocked and then re fit. Select a short programme cycle and see if the fault is cured.
