Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer
Hiya Barry, I have the same machine and for the last 3 days have had the exact same problem...mini load and reduced crease as well as power light flash right when it comes to drain...?
I have scratched my head and done lots and lots of research, reckon I could design and build my own washer now lol, anyway, I fitted a new pump and ran it, thinking this is it sorted, went out and got a call from our lass...doing it again.
Right, gonna have to get me hands dirty...I removed the drain hose (Ignore the pump for a second, I'm talking about the grey hose that goes from the pump to the sink) from the sink and poked my fingers as far as they would go...debris, I then removed it from the other end (Pump) so I had a long hose in my hands, not attached to anything at either end....cleared it and again, loads of debris (Fluff, plastic etc) and put it all back together...turned the old fella back on and running a wash right now as we speak...happily spinning round at 1400rpm and throwing gallons of water down the sink...I would consider it fixed.
So I can most definately tell you that you have a blockage somewhere mate, I'd get your hands in the toolbox and pull that pipe off, doesn't require any level of experience, just the ability to put things back as you found them...
Hope that helps

It is possible you have got something stuck in filter, and this is what is stopping it coming out, you are turning it the right way, you will just have to stick with it, and keep trying to ease it out.
Keep trying to eaes it in and out, and you should be able to remove it eventually.
Plz rate this solution.

If the washer doesn’t operate or make any noise when set on any cycle, or if it stops suddenly when it should continue onto the next cycle, it may not be receiving electrical power, or, if the motor stopped mid-cycle, the machine’s overload protector may have tripped. In this case, take out some of the articles to reduce the load and let the protector reset itself. Then restart the machine. Otherwise:
1) Be sure the machine is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it’s plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be sure the washer lid is closed completely.
2) If the receptacle seems dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit.
3) Unplug the washer, and check the power cord. If necessary, replace the cord.
4) Open the lid and check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that it pushes against. Press and release the switch. If it doesn’t click when you do this, it’s probably broken. If you’re experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call a repairperson.
5) If the washer still doesn’t work, the controls may be faulty. Call a service person.
Thanks for your question

SOURCE: drum will not move
Try to remove drum belt, and then turn drum by hand, if it does not turn , then you have either siezed drum bearigs, or some thing jammed between the inner and outer drum
If drum turns freely, then check motor to see if it is free to turn.
Please rate my solution.
