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.
Door won't lock, so machine won't start
you may have messed the lock up while the door was braking because of miss alignment-does the door line up now-you may have to replace the lock-cheers Denny
Why dose my washing smell funny after being washed
I can't believe you haven't heard about this.There has been a widespread issue with all front loader washing machines with mold on the door seals.i have heard that a wipe-down with bleach helps,but there may be other solutions that are better,maybe someone else on FixYa knows.
My hotpoint few12 is emptying through top where
I think what was meant is that the water seems to overflow from the top side and so washes off the powder. This can be due to a improper setting or fault on the water level controller unit as it fails to detect and stop the water flows at a lower level.
Hi! Our FEW 12 machine
You don't need to remove the pump (Or you shouldn't have to anyway) Here's a copy of my standard advice for this problem (Most hotpoint machines without a filter access door are covered in paragraph 3)
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. You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not sure which with the model you mention) there is either 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) 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).
Washing machine door lock
undo clamp holding door gasket on cabinet and peel gasket back in the area of the door catch.
door lock is just held in by 2 screws from the outside and will come away when these are undone. on some models, there is also a small diameter pipe going to the door lock and take this off. note where wires go before removing them
Washing machine does not stop
If you have checked that the drain pump is working fine then
the timer has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps...please post
back for further assistance.

My Hoover First Edition keeps filling with water
This seems quite likely to be a fault of the WATER LEVEL SENSOR. So since the pressure activated switch is not working even when the set water level is reached the water overflows.
Drain the water out of the washer and remove the level sensor which is located on the rim of the drum which has a tube feeding water to a pressure activated switch- the diaphragm could have punctured or failed on the switch.
You can bypass the switch by shorting to see if the machine starts and works , if so change the switch.
Found the filter under the front kick plate.can
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).
