The detergent dispenser
will not close properly or is
collecting water?

1. Check the drawer is properly aligned.
2. Clean the dispenser drawer (see Care and Maintenance).

While washing water is leaking out of the soap drawer out of our 1st Addition Washer/Dryer Please help


Probably a soap blockage in dispenser, or washer is overfilling, or the drum is turning too fast on wash.
Check the dispenser to make sure it is clear of powder.
The drum should turn fairly slowly, or other wise it will throw water up to the diepemser if it is turning too fast.

Can this machine heat its own water? It has a hot and cold water intake. also mashing machine is not taking the powder from the powder drawer. Can you help?


Yes, this washer does have a heating element.
Make sure there is a good water pressure at the inlet valve/s,
or the powder will not dispense.
Make sure there is no blockage or obstruction in the drawer, \also make sure you have the powader in the correct compartment.
Hope this helps.

Dispenser draw filling with water, i have been told there is no filter i can clean!!? The part of the draw where you put your fabric conditioner in.


You have been ill advised, there is a filter that you can clean.
Remove rear panel of washer.
Remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove top cover., check the hose from dispenser to drum is not blocked with powder..
If the dispenser drawer still fills up, then it is possible that the condenser is blocked with fluff.
This a major job to put right, you would be well advised to call an engineer if this is the case.
Hope this helps.

Remove dispenser drawer from m/c, and thoroughly clean it and all accessories.Clean all residual build up of undesolved powder and conditioner in drawer compartment..
If it still leaks, then remove top cover, locate large black hose at bottom of dispenser, and give it a good squeeze to clear any possible blockage in the hose itself..
If still no better, could be due to exceptionally high water preesure forcing the water out of the drawer.

Turn cold water valve down a little to reduce pressure.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hotpoint WD440 Drawer overflowing


Hi.
I would check the inlet hose from the bottom of the soap dispenser where it goes into the drum for a soap blockage.
undesolved powder can build up here and prevent the water entering the drum
You can access this hose by removing top cover.
the hose is on the left side front.
This should solve your problem.
Please leave feed back.
Thanks.

Hotpoint Ultima WT965 - Water gushing out from door and soap drawer


you have a blocked filter, unplug from mains, take off back panel you will see a black sump hose coming from the tub to the pump, tilt the machine forward and put a dish or bowl under sump unscrew clamp and pull off slowly to release any water in the drum. You will find a blockage, also what appears to be a ping pong ball dont throw away it is meant to be there.

Soap dispenser


Some softeners are too thick, you could dilute this with water before you add to the machine. Note: Your tube to the softener drawer could be loose or something, you could check this by taking the top of the machine off to examine. Actually simple.
