Question about Hotpoint Ultima WD72 Front Load Washer/Dryer
During final spin/rinse a vibrating/buzzing noise begins behind the fron panel and which appears to be coming from just to the right of the soap drawer. After a few seconds, either the trip throws on the household consumer unit, or on one occasion, the fuse in the main splug blew as well. Have noticed (don't know if onnected) that soap drawer is often found containing water after machine is finished.
Turned out to be the motor. Discovered this by running the machine through a cycle with the top and rear panels removed so as to watch what happened. On fast spin there was a bang, a big blue flash from the back of the motor and the house electrical trip tripped out. Reset trip, restart washing machine and it worked find again until fast spin. Ordered a new motor on line from UK White Goods, fitted it and all is right as rain.

1.The soap dish needs to be cleaned out, holes clogged. The instructions for this
process is in the user guide and I'll paste the site below for you in case you do not have it available to you.
2.The noise sounds like a short or electrical problem starting.
For this you will need a hands on diagnoses.
TRY doing the soap drawer first to be sure that it is not the culprit!
The book can be found here and the drawer info on page 12:
Let me know how it goes!
