Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My hotpoint is same you have to pull machine out then tip on side carefully then remove black sump pipe right by pump at Back machine clipped on so remove clip holing to drum and pump. Also the pressure sensor might be attached just unclip then clean filter out and put back clipping back on tight. Hotpoint have self cleaning pump on these models but has catch by pump that can get blocked only new models of hotpoint made this easier hope this helped :)

I have a whirlpool cabrio washing machine.ecerything is working fine but its beginning to smell like sewer. The sink next to it doesn't smell nor the drains. It's coming from the washer. Anything I ca


Clear your filter.
Remove detergent drawer and clean the drawer and its receptacle on the machice.
Bung in 8 milton tablets in the drum and put it on the hottest longest wash you can and leave it run normally.

Run a short cold wash to flush the machine

Now put some nice smelling low foaming disinfectant in and repeat the hot wash cycle.
This should sort it but may take repeated treatments. Lower the amount of softener and detergent you use as excess can build up and can cause this problem to come back. Additionally dont overload with really dirty cloths and if you do a wash with exceptionally dirty cloths then after you empty your machine put it on a shortest rinse cycle to purge and contaminated water that is left behind.

If all this fails you will need to have your machine serviced.

Hotpoint Ultima Super Silent WF865. I'm getting error code F04 there's water in the machine and it's stopped.


Error code F04 indicates pressure switch jammed on empty.
Remove the lower rear panel of washer.
Remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the plastic filter inside hose.
Remove the hose onto the pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here.
This should clear the fault
please leave feedback for my solution.
Thanks.

Does machine have a filter


The filter is to be found at the rear of the washer.
Remove lower rear panel of washer, remove large black hose fastened to bottom of tub.
Watch out for water running out.
Remove plastic`filter inside hose and clean.
Refit filter and hose.
Dirty washing can somtimes be attributed to washing at too low a temperature, so make sure you have selected right temp for washing.
Please leave a fixya rating for my solution.Thanks.

Clothes are dirtier after washing...


The problem with your front load washer is a broken rear bearing. If you remove the rear panel, you will see brown "gunk" all over.
If you want to repair it on your own, order this:

Smelly drum


run a load with no clothes, hot water and a gallon or two of bleach and less then 1 drop, very small amount of dish detergent. the dish detergent is used as  surfactant (makes the bleach stick to the interior walls)
run an extra rinse cycle to make sure you get all the bleach out before putting clothes in.
