Our washing machine will not pump out and we have lost the manual

We probably need to clean the fluff filter but cannot find it since we have misslaid the instruction manual. The machine is a hotpoint wmd 960 washing machine.

Where is the dirt trap on the Hotpoint WMD 740?


Run the washing machine with a cleaner compound like http://www.target.com/p/tide-high-efficiency-washing-machine-cleaner-5-count/-/A-14230069

Also the pump can be cleaned by undoing the tap at the bottom front of the washer. First make sure the drain tube has been pulled out to empty residual water in a container. Then unscrew the tap and filter to clear any dirt and items stuck in it.

Check the manual at this site.

I have a Hotpoint WMD 960 Ultima. When I remove the washing after a cycle, the clothes are covered in dirty marks. can you tell me if this is something you can advise me about?


Look within the drum and observe if there is any dirt on it. Also check the quality of water. Check if there is any dirt /grease from the drum bearings due to failure of the bearings/seals.
Finally have the machine cleaned using good detergent cleaner , please check the link below for some tips:

I have a hotpoint WMD 960 WASHING MACHINE and it smells


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Probably stale water or smelly lint/fluff.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

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!) and most 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!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
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. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

My Hotpoint Ultima WMD 960 displays "F04" on the display panel before the programme ends. Have cleaned the filter and it worked OK in spin mode and finished normally but now have put in a washing load, it...


Error code F04 means pressure switch jammed on empty.
Do the following.
Remove lower rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose on bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside the hose.
Remove the hose on to the pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Cant find filter on my hotpoint Ultima


Good luck. All modern washers that I know dont have the filter you need. If a clean out is needed you will have to clean out the pump.
