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!)

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

Water in crisper drawer of Whirlpool model number ET18TK

the water in the bottom of the fridge will be from condensate running down the back wall and not collecting in the drain ridge to flow outside to the dish on top of the compressor. It comes from overloading the fridge by opening the door too often and excess food trying to cool down. check and unplug any blockages in the drain and pull any containers away from the back wall as water will flow off the wall onto them and miss the drain all together. The drain ridge will be under 1/2 way down the back

I have Beco WM616 7W washing machine...when I start washing...water should filled in washing machine but it comes out from somewere..all programms working...just water comes from bottom..

Check all your hose connections. Sounds as if the drain hose has come loose or burst. (common fault in all machines).
Open soap drawer, and check that water is flowing into it.
If no water is flowing into it, looks like the water connection hose at rear is not secure.
If water is flowing into the drawer, but not staying in the drum, then check the drainage outlet hose is secure and undamaged.

Hi i have a leak under my hotpoint wdl540 the pipes are all clean and dry and the washing machine still works where would the water be coming from?

Could possibly be a little knick in the door seal or from the corner of the dispenser (the drawer in known to leak and the best remedy is to adjust the front feet so the unit is tipping back slightly, this allows gravity to help the flow of water in the drawer ). The valves could be leaking on the inner side if the machine, Really depends on whether it is a flood type leak or just a small puddle/drip. Run the machine pulled out, whilst stood on some newspaper, this should help trace the area of origin. Keep an eye out when it drains that your plumbing isn't blocked and so the drained water comes out of the standpipe instead of flowing away. Keep me posted or repost if you need further advice. All the best.

I have a Miele W4840 front load washer and there is water leaking from the door. I've checked the seal and it doesn't seem to be damaged, but there is a definite leak. Please advise.

first make sure your detergent drawer is not popping open. water will run out from beneath the drawer, run over to the top of the door, run down the door, and then straight down to the floor. If you are not leaking out of the detergent drawer, the next thing down is the bottom of the glass door. look at the glass where it contacts the door seal at the bottom. It should be clean and smooth. Most likely you will find lint, hair, and soap residue. that needs to be cleaned off. any surface imperfections will cause a slow drip or trickle of water to come out of the lowest part of the door. If that is fine, and it is still leaking, open the cover to the drain pump on the bottom right of the front of the machine. Make sure that drain pump filter is tight. run the machine with that little drain access door open and see if you are leaking from there. If none of the above helps, and you are still getting water leaking from the door, miele has designed a new clamping ring for the door seal. Call them and make arrangements to have it replaced.

Water in wood's fridge

If you have the wire metal shelf model, there is a wrap around cooling plate (back and two sides) at the top of the inside. The frost that forms on this while it is running melts off after the compressor stops and the water runs down, into the drip channel, and out the drain hole at the center of the channel on the back wall. Clean out that hole so the water will flow out instead of down the walls to the bottom of your refrig.
If you have the glass shelf model, you have to remove the metal cover at the bottom back of the refrig and clean out the defrost drain hole located there.

Water freezing on the tray section under the freezer drawer.

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

Water not draining from drawer

Could be the little non return valve mounted underneath the top drawer. Lie down on the floor under the top drawer, remove the main plastic pannel covering the bottom to expose the black drainage hose (you may need to cut away a cable tie). Remove the drainage hose from bottom of the drawer - at the start of the drainage hose there will be a small rubber type flap - if it looks broken or worn out, it will need replacing - call F & P for a replacement, approx $5 + postage for a pair (one for the top drawer and one for the bottom)
Hope this helps
