Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer

3 Answers

Water Leak I have had my machine for 15months now and water has started to flow out of the soap tray, when the machine starts a rinse water comes back up the pipe from the drum into the soap tray and flows out of the front of the machine. Tried to see if anything blocking, but I dont have that type of problem, water comes back into the soap tray when the washing is spinning, then floods out of the front of the soap drawer.

    Hi found the problem, an old sock blocking the outlet pump, stripped it down and pulled it out.



    the water was not being sucked out of the drum quick enough, hence water back filling out of front seals and drawer

    Where is the outlet pump?

    I have the same problem but it appears to be empting fine (I have not checked the filter). It does not appear to be over filling either. Is there a non return valve of some description to stp the water comming back up to the draw that may be stuck open or will it be the filter?

    Hi, my washing machine keeps leaking water from the tray, sometimes a little dribble & then next time alot more, but it also seems to drip out from the bottom right hand corner. to see where the water comes from you have to take off the plastic cover at the bottom, then trickles down from one of the screws that hold the front face on at the bottom right hand side.



    can anyone help please

If possible pull out your drawer and clean it up. Reason due to clogging with detergent, etc. Refer to your manual. If you can't get the drawer out, use a tooth brush to scrub; see that brush does not fall in. The dirt can fall in. To test if clear, pour water into drawer by opening it just so the water will fall in. Try all the drawers.

    From the drum you come to the filter, from the filter. hose connects to pump.

  • prem mathew Mar 15, 2009

    st ****,

    If water comes out of your drawer during the spin, you have a block in your pump, which you have to dismantle to check.



    davinac,

    you have to open up your top to check out the inlet pipes, one of them might have come loose or there is a break.



    Blocked filter. Unplug the machine; take the screws out from the back you will see a black hose coming from the tub to the pump, this is the filter if the machine is still full of water get yourself a washing up bowl and lower the grey waste pipe into the bowl and gravity should let the water out, raise the pipe when bowl is full. If no water comes out like that tilt the machine forward and put the bowl under the black hose, undo the clip with pliers and slowly take the hose off, water will flow when full push hose back up and empty the bowl keep doing this until empty, then remove blockage. Someone should tilt the machine when you're at this. Refit carefully as you dismantled

I have th same problem, apparently a possible cause could be a partially blocked pump filter. Just trying to get infoon where this is and how to get to it though.

Raf, remove the soap dispensor and check to see if you have a bottle cap gasket blocking the fill port. Just use your finger and probe around where the port is. Catriver..post back.

How to fix leak from soap dispensor


I assume you have water coming out of the dispenser and running down the front of the machine. You probably have a build up of soap powder in the water inlet and it is restricting the flow and backing up.
Soap powder is only partially soluble in cold water and a residue of undissolved powder builds up over time, one of the reasons I use a liquid detergent. Remove the dispenser tray, it should pull out fairly easily with just a little resistance. Try and clear any blockages, hot water is best as it dissolves better. Clean the tray you have removed and re-assemble.

Water leaks from my detergent dispenser from my front loader washing machine?


This is usually indicative of soemthing blocking the flow of water out of the soap tray, down the connecting pipe and in to the drum chamber.
The soap tray doesnt have any seals as water should just flow into the tray, wash out the soap / fabric softner, and then flow out the back of the tray and down the connecting pipe. When working correctly, there is no pressure or water back-up to cause the water to reach the front of the soap tray.

Take out the tray - your machine user manual will show you how, and check both the tray itself and the "hole" it slots in to for either a build up of solidified soap powder, or some other foreign object. If still leaking, remove the tray again and try to get your hand (a woman's or teenager's hand being smaller is best) down the large oulet at the back of the "hole" the tray slots in to to feel for a blockage.
Do you have young children ? A washing machine soap tray is a great place to hide things !

Occasionally, if the smaller pipes that deliver hot and cold water to the tray come adrift, this can spray water at the front of the machine. This water then has only one real way out - via the soap tray "hole". Most often this will be the cold water pipe as this has higher water pressure to cope with. The only way to check this is to take the top of the machine off.

If after all of the above it still leaks, you'll either need to dismantle the machine enough to see the back of the soap tray "hole", connecting pipe and drum chamber for a better look for problems, or call an engineer.

Water is coming out of the soap dispenser, what do


We had water pour out of the dispenser of our Kenmore HE2 washer. hot water helped us for one load then i realize that a trapped rag was the problem We were actually able to pull the face cloth out of the intake tube without taking everything apart!
opened the washer door and feel around inside the rubber seals to find where the intake tube connects to the drum (upper-left side). felt a small bit of cloth sticking out of the tube and were able to slowly work it out by pulling back and forth. and pulled it completely out thats all it was try this

Water leaks from softner dispenser


I had same thing with MtgNeptune frnt loader. Manual sed may be a kink in the front drain hose, caused by sudden burst in water pressure. Not in my case. A service call and $90 laterwasn't fixed. I pulled the soap tray and found rinse water wasn't going down the well as fast as it was filling, causing water to spill down front, and around the door. I turned down the water pressure 2 days ago and 9 loads later- no problem! It may take a few minutes longer to fill, but far less work than mopping after each load or hitting 'pause' and 'start' while waiting for the the water level to go down. We're on a well and ocassionally have change in water pressure. I don't know if this was the problem, but it was definately my solution! I turned the intake vavles at the wall to 1/2 pressure. Floor is staying dry and the drain tray beneath is also dry ($12.00 Menards). I hope this helps.

Epic Z - Water coming out the front soap tray


you can try pulling the soap tray out and clean all the old detergent and softener in there. they do clogged the outlet of water for the water to overflow.

check also where the soap box is inserted. it would also have lots of dirt.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Water Leaking really bad from the Dispenser area


Disconnect the plug from the outlet. Remove the top of the washer panel by removing the 2 back hex screws then sliding it back to lift it off of the washer. Take off the front control panel by removing the phillips screws holding it in place. Remove the dispenser drawer. Check the dispenser housing for clogs or lime build up at the bottom of the dispenser housing. Or the drain hose (large black hose attached to the front of the drawer housing) to the washer may be crimped or clogged.

LG WM2277HS - water backing up into soap dispenser


The pipe from the soap dispenser to the tub is quite large, it seems as if the water isn't getting out of the dispenser quick enough. Pull the whole dispenser out of the machine. There is a release clip at the back of the cup with the tray fully open. Clean out all soap residue and scum. Sometimes there is also a spot or setting for liquid or powder detergent. Adjust accordingly. Reassemble and try it again.
