Check the filters and ensure the outlet hose isn't kinked.
Thanks for your reply. I have been wanting to clean the filters but don't know where to find them on this model---anybody got any clues how to get to them ????
Not sure about this specific model, but these days most are to be found behind a small (fag packet size) panel on front bottom of machine. Pull that off and access the filters, screw or pull usually.

not old older hotpoints there not, they are not accessable by end user, follow grey pipe back to pump (you will have to pyt m/c on its back, usual precautions apply)
Got to the grey pipe couldn't find anything blocking. Reassembled and still comes out the door. What else can i do.. There is no filter I can empty on this machine. There is water coming out the waste pipe.
there is a filter trust me.

however i suggest you call hotpoint
where that grey pipe ends at the back there will be a panel at the bottom that comes off. when you take that off look at the bottom of the drum and you will see a black sump clamp to it that is the filter, take that sump off the bottom and the filter is inside!

5 years and 2 months late though, I suspect even if the machine was fixed it may have since gone to the great scrapheap in the sky 'or china'
