Hi.
The plastic serrated type can be undone by sliding one half sideways. Use pliars as they can be quite sharp.

Standard clips can be used as a replacement - it's just cheaper in manufacture.
Try not to damage the hose - as they can be an expence you don't need.

Hope this helps.

BOSCH Classixx 6 cod eror E3



The error 3 code signals a pump fault. This is most often a blockage in the filter, (Front right bottom corner) and often behind the removable kick strip. If your machine is Full of Water, do not remove this filter until you have got the water from out of the machine manually. This is explained in my next posting. Assuming only a little water remains in the drum, then a big towel to soak this up is all that is needed. Proceed and remove the filter and clean out all the debris, taking time to look and feel inside the filter housing for small coins, buttons, nails etc etc. It is advisable that while you are doing this, to check the sump pipes that come from the base of the drum to the pump and any other pipe that is attached to the filter housing. You may need to tilt the machine back to do this or alternatively dis-connect all pipes and lay down on its side to allow better and easier access. Check all pipes thoroughly and replace correctly ensuring a good fit and tight clamps. Hopefully now you pump will work correctly and discharge the water, typically emptying a full drum in no more than 30 seconds. Please see next posting on 'How to empty drum manually' Hi There, Is your Bosch full of water? If it is empty you can place towel down on floor in front of filter door, usually bottom right corner looking from front and then remove the filter by turning anti-clockwise. The towel is just to catch the residue of water that is always left in the machine even when working properly, around a pint. If your machine is full of water you will need to drain off the excess first, before removing the filter, unless of course you have your machine outside or an area that can cope with a lot of water spewing out. To drain off excess, take empty hose from back of machine and lower into a washing up bowl. If the empty hose(Usually grey in colour) is jubilee clipped half way up back of machine, please remove this clip to aid siphoning into washing up bowl. Once all water is drained you can then proceed with emptying/cleaning the filter as earlier described. If you cannot see the filter at the front (usually right hand side) base then you may need to remove the plastic kick strip that runs across the front base with flat blade screwdriver being careful not to break the plastic retaining tabs that will hold it back in place when you are finished.

My machine comes up with error 2 in mid spin then wont finish spinning


Without the make and model of your machine, this is extremely hard to diagnose!

However, the symptoms would suggest that this could well be a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.

You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model, there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.



OR



You will need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine. If there is no filter at the front, pull the machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure it lines up, or it won't reassemble correctly). Now push the boot back onto the fitting at the bottom of the drum where it came from and tighten up the jubilee clip, making sure that it is fitted correctly (it too may have a small slot out of it that fits around a protrusion on the bottom of the housing).

After a wash cycle, the spin cycle will not activate. The light just flashes


This is simply a problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. Your repeat of the rinse/spin cycle is giving it extra empty time and then the spin works OK.

Hotpoint washing machine WF430- Where would my filter be located as it needs to be emptied?


Its located at the rear of the machine, adjacent the drain pump, held with jubilee clips. You only have undo the main one. Filter is like a small, holed basket with a plastic ball. Empty anything in there and make sure you place the plastic ball back, tighten jubilee clip.

Dishwasher not completely emptying of water


YOU PROBABLY HAVE 'BITS' ACCUMALATED IN THE HOSE, WHERE IT JOINS TO THE UNDERSIDE OF YOUR SINK OUTLET.
SWITCH OFF DISHWASHER, UNDO THE BASE WHERE THE FILTERS ARE AND USE A CUP TO DRAIN OUT THE WATER IN TO A BOWL. THEN CLEAN ALL THE FILTER BITS IN HOT WATER. GO TO THE HOSE JOINING THE SINK TRAP AND UNDO THIS (SCREWDRIVER NEEDED TO UNDO THE BRASS CLIP). UNSCREW THE WHITE PLASTIC END JOINING THE 'U' BEND. LOOK IN THE END OF THE PLASTIC NOZZLE AND YOU SHOULD SEE FOOD DEBRIS IN THE HOSE. CLEAN ALL OF THIS OUT. AND REFIT TO UNDER SIDE OF SINK TRAP, DONT FORGET TO MAKE SURE THE BLACK 'O' RING IS IN PROPERLY. MAKE SURE ALL THE FILTERS ARE IN PLACE INSIDE THE DISHWASHER AND PUT IT ON EMPTY, HOTTEST WASH CYCLE YOU HAVE. PREFERABLY WITH A DISHWASHER CLEANER IN IT. (NORMALLY DEBRIS IS : RICE, PASTA, AND EGG SHELLS, THESE ALL BLOCK THE TUBES AND BUILD UP OVERTIME. FOR SOME REASON THEY DO NOT BREAK DOWN AND PASS THROUGH. BEST THING TO DO IS TO MAKE SURE THE PLATES ETC ARE SCRAPED OFF PROPERLY BEFORE GOING IN THE DISHWASHER. I HAVE DONE THIS MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS, MAINLY DUE TO THE KIDS BEING LAZY, AND JUST PUTTING THE WHOLE PLATE INCLUDING LEFTOVERS STRAIGHT IN. HOPE THIS HELPS.
