Hotpoint first edition few12 wont fill

I've checked & cleaned the hose & the pump. Eventually found a filter in the black hose inside the machine - no blockage there. Lights come on as always so assume electrics are ok. Any other ideas please ?

Found the filter under the front kick plate.can turn it quarter turn Anticlock but it will not come out,Why?


I've got the same problem justnow. Read on another site that the reason that the filter wont come out is because of the amount of 'rubbish' that is behind it - best way is just wiggle it and hope that it eventually comes out (although sometimes this breaks it).

Good Luck!

My filter!!


First of all,lay the drain hose down to floor level and let the water run into a bucket or similar, this will empty the washer of water.
the filter is inside the large black hose on bottom of drum.
Undo hose, remove and clean filter
Refit filter and hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should solve your problem.
Good luck.

Where is the filter on Hotpoint first edition washing machine ?


Hi.
Some of these models, I believe, had a filter behind the front plynth. If nothing there then you will have to get to the back of the appliance.
Disconnect the power supply and remove the bottom back plate.
You will see a black hose that connects to the bottom of the drum and the other end connected to a drain pump.
With a few towels handy (make sure washing machine is empty!) unscrew the large clip holding the hose to the outer drum. Indide this hose you will find a filter. Remove, clean and refit.
Make sure hose is pushed firmly back on the outer drum and the clip fully tightened.

test with a small amount of water in the drum to make sure there are no leaks.

Hope this helps

Few12 will not spin after washing, any ideas


Had the same problem. Removed the kick plate at front and unscrewed filter. In the filter recess I found a cotton wool bud. Appeared to have stopped the blade like fan spinning which appears to push the water into the drain hose. Works perfectly now.

Hotpoint wma12 not draining help please my work clothes are stuck


You need to check the pump filter which is accessed by removing lower rear panel of washer.
On the right you will see a large black hose, ondo securing clip and remove hose, be careful because there will still be water in it.
Better still , lay hose down into a bowl or similar to drain any remaining water in m/c.
Inside you will see the plastic filter, remove and clean, refit filter and hose, make sure you get it on properly
Test it for leaks, and that should be it.
If it still does not drain then you need to check the pump is o/k.
You can do this by listening or feeling if you can hear the pump going.
BE CAREFUL

Any more info , let me know.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
