Washer Dryer flooding at spin cycle

Hello,
I have the hotpoint aquarius WD420 machine and it floods every time it goes to the spin cycle, I was going to clean out the filter to see if that helps but I cannot find where the filter is on this machine. Have you any suggestions where it could be, it is not mentioned in the manual.
Thanks,
Nicola

Nicola...not sure what you mean by floods. If you mean that water is coming out of the top of the machine basket as a result of either overflow or splashing, each is different from water coming out of the drain hose.

Generally, washers which are spinning are also completing a rinse cycle...the program adds a bit of water to the spinning load to drive out the last of the detergent.

If you've got a problem in spin with flooding out of the top (basket full), this is probably a timer issue (or...less likely...a sticking water valve). If the problem is splashing, you should keep the cover closed for safety. If the drain hose is overflowing, the problem is lack of capacity to take the pumpout. Clean the drain.

Whay my Hotpoint -Ariston Aquarius WD420 Front Load All-in-One Washer / Dryer stpos have way the circle


You say it stops half way through cycle (if I have read it right), especially when fast spin starts. Does it stop anywhere else (in wash cycle or rinse cycle)?

I would check the main filter in the sump (pipe from drum to drain pump) and ensure pump itself is not blocked which could cause the pump out time to be exceeded and thus stop the program. A faulty pressure switch could also be responsible.
I would also check the tacho on the motor and connections to main board at bottom of machine near to motor.

Disconnect machine by pulling out plug and wait 10 minutes for capacitors to discharge before doing anything, to protect yourself against residual voltages.

From a retired engineer who owns one of these machines.

WD420 hotpoint door will not open ?


In some cases switching off and back on again solves it. Otherwise try to run Rinse & Spin cycle again, and if after cycle door will stay locked you'll need to check the door lock itself, its wiring and/or main PWB
Please Update me how is it going on this

Machine wont go into spin cycle


The pump fiter is probably blocked.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Locate, and remove large black hose on bottom of tub.
Remove plastic filter inside, and clean.
Refit filter and hose.
Should now be o/k.
Before you do anything, lay the drain hose down into a bucket or bowl, and drain all the water out, so you do not have a flood when you remove the hose.
please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
