HOTPOINT FIRST EDITION WMAII

Hello, i am hoping somebody can help me with an anoying problem i have with my washing machine, after the wash has finished the fabric softner is still left behind, i have tryed everything from taking the draw out and giving everything a good clean to gently poking all the tiny holes inside with a cocktail stick to clear them of any residule but to no avail. I would be very grateful for any feed back

Regards
Mrs S Holt.

Hiya
it sounds like your cold water inlet valve is in need of replacing, as its this that fills the fab conditioner compartment. it is quite a common fault and cheap to replace, even with minimal diy skills you should be able to do this yourself and save the money an engineer would have charged.

hope this helps

Hotpoint first edition automatic washing machine washes clothes .


I've got a Hotpoint First Edition WM52 that stopped spinning at the end of the wash cycle. Called the repair man and he said it was most likely just the filter blocked? Suggested I reemove the front base panel and try to locate the filter remove, clean and replace. Front panel wouldn't come off, base panel at the rear, 6 screws to remove revealing a black squeezy hose with slide grips holding them on, on removal of the hose two ten pence pieces, a one pence piece and a childs hair clip blackened with dirt sat blocking the top of the hose.
Hope this helps; repair man saved me £58+vat just with a few words and a bit of persistence from myself

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!


hiya
first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help
