Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF220 Front Load Washer
Posted by Anonymous on
hotpoint Wd440. I had the same problem, lights flashing and water not draining, First drain your water (syphoning works but tastes ****), if the machine drains then you know its not blocked. Then put the machine on M for about 5 mins, then put it on fast spin. This should do the trick, it worked for me anyway. Good luck.

Several possible reasons for this. M/C not level, causing it to move about.
Overloading of m/c.
Loose concrete balance weight, there is one at top and one at bottom.
Suspension spring broken or unhooked.
Suspension leg loose or broken.
Main drum bearings worn, to check this, turn drum by hand and if it feels noisy or rough , then bearings have gone (expensive repair).
There are other possible causes, but these are the main reasons.
Plz rate my solution.

If you spin the drum by hand, and it is niosy and rumbling then the main drum bearings have failed.
If under 5 years old, then you should be able to get it repaired under Hotpoint 5 year guarantee, You just pay for labour and call out, cheapest option, it is not really a D.I.Y job, as it is quite involved, and entails a lot of work.
Please rate my advice.

filter is inside the machine. Turn off the power and pull out the machine to
get to the rear. Pull out the hose you
see going into the wall pipe, lay at floor level or plastic bag to drain out
remaining water in machine. Remove the panel at the bottom (2 screws) where the
discharge hose comes out. You should see a black concertina type tube coming
from below the drum attached by a jubilee clip. The filter is inside. Loosen
the clip and pull away the tube, take out the filter and clean it. When you
replace it don't forget to put the ball float back in (exactly as you found it)
and check it’s well fixed by running a spin cycle before sealing up. Caution, the exit drain hose shd be fitted at
the exact location where you found it, abt three feet up from ground level.

Power off the mains. The
filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at
bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain
out all the water. The filter is inside
the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum.
the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip
holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big
which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To
put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball
into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir
Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic
clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged
drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and
remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower
front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs,
you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this
helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
