Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Front Load Washer/Dryer
When my machine is draining the water away it comes out the drawer and door instead of going down the drainage pipe.also if it is a 30 minute wash it takes about 1hour 40 minutes if it only has 4 minutes left it drains out the drawer and door and goes back up till 16minutes and does this over and over again. ihave checked the drainage pipe and hose and they are fine,ialso checked the water pressure and it is ok to
I have had this problem on the WD860 washer drier and it sounds more or less identical - the problem is that lint and general clothing material (and I'm sure some slightly less clothe-like items) are blocking the filter in the water pump that sends the water out of the machine. Now the only problem I have is that this was previously discovered by a Hotpoint engineer and promptly dealt with under the warranty, however I do not know how to get back in to the water pump housing (without damaging it) to clear out the new filter blockage. The waterpump is located to the rear of the machine on the right hand side (from the back) at the bottom of the drum - it is quite easy to access with a philips head screwdriver to remove the back panel, however then comes the problem - the water pump appears to be part of an all-in-one sealed unit that runs from the drum to the waste pipe and I can't figure out how to access it without causing damage. (Admins may wish to move this post to the as yet non-existent WD860 section - but the problem does sound identical to the one that floods my kitchen more or less everytime I use the damn thing!)

I had this problem and it was one of my sons socks stuck in the machine, the water comes out of the draw because it can't exit the machine fast enough, just need to get someone to get into the drumb and remove it from the inside. 10 mins job? Hope that is of some help to you.

Sorry I do not have an answer for you...I have got a similar problem. Just before spinning water pours out of the dispenser drawer. Checked water pressure, drain holes etc seems ok. If you do get an answer would appreciate you letting me know. Thanks
