Hotpoint Aquarius WDL540 washer dryer that will not drain.

This answer was rated:

Hotpoint Aquarius WDL540 washer dryer that will not drain. The 4 lights started flashing midway through the last wash. Have removed the bottom panel and there is what appears to be a white screw cap surrounded by a black ring and a screw either side. Please would you advise how to drain the machine and what the problem is.

Many thanks,
Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! That screw cap is the lint filter for the pump and it is probably full of "gunk" and what is causing the machine not to drain. Unscrew the cap and clean that filter out and you will likely be back in operation. Water will come out when you unscrew it, so be prepared!
