On spin the water comes up the dispenser tray and overflows


Pull the dispenser drawer all the way out, there will be a flat part which you push down to slide the drawer out, Then you can get to the inside to give it a clean, next you can remove the top by undoing the 2 screws at the back and sliding it off, you will see the hoses that run to the dispenser and you can clean them with a bottle brush.

Leaking machine


Could be caused by several reasons.
1- Overfilling, check water level .
2-Blockage in dispenser, or dispenser inlet hose to drum
3-Drawer not in properly.
4-M/c not draining properly, thus when it goes into spin, water could be thrown up by centrifugal force, and come out of the front of the drawer.Check filter.
5-Water pressure very high, forcing water out of drawer, adjust pressure.
Plz rate my soution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint WD72 - Plug Fuse Blows on Final Spin/Rinse


Hello thesquiffys
Welcome,


You said,
During final spin/rinse a vibrating/buzzing noise begins behind the from 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 mains plug blew as well. Have noticed (don't know if connected) that soap drawer is often found containing water after machine is finished.

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:

Hotpoint wf860 washing machine leaking


Had exactly the same problem and it did indeed turn out to be a blocked filter - mainly with "Colour Catcher" sheets. Initially I thought the dispenser drawer was faulty so spent twently-six quid on one before that failed to fix it and then I discovered this site!

To get to the filter, unplug the machine then remove the bottom plastic panel at the back of the machine (2 screws). Undo the jubilee clamp holding the black rubber flexible coupler that joins the drum, drain pump and pressure sensor to each other. Pull the black coupler downwards away from the drum. Inside is a plastic cup filter arrangement with a plastic ball. Clean this out of various debis - along with the sheets there was £ 2.26 (to put towards the cost of the drawer!) in mine.

Not draining and flooding my kitchen!


hiya
first off norah, you will need to check the pump filter as there is probably a blockage in there.

secondly guest, sounds like a faulty pressure switch or even a small hole in the pressure pipe, thats why your machine will not stop filling.

hope these help

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj

Softner still in the draw


The detergent/softner dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distribution to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle)are done by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next step !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test with a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!
