Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Leaks after wash programme ends

After the washing cycle ends on our Hotpoint Aquarius (1200) a slow but consistant leak creeps out over the tiles. The machine is on a slightly unbalanced base but has not previously caused problems. (4 years old)
The feet have been adjusted recently to minimise shake rattle and roll - is this causing the problem?
Going through a ton of towells!!!

Check your inlet hose or hoses if it is hot and cold fill.
Turn off supply to washer and see if it still leaks, if it does then you have water coming from inside m/c somewhere

Water leaks on spin cycle


Water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Our washing machine is leaking at the front. What are the most likely causes please, and how can I fix it. It is a Hotpoint Aquarius Extra WMA36 1300 spin. Thank you


It is so common that water leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked from the front then the door gasket can be fault and needs to be replaced

please check this link:

If there is leak at the bottom as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Hotpoint fault?


Check the drain and circulation hoses for partial blockages as usually this causes such problems. Also make sure you using program with full speed spin cycle (solid spiral sign just before the dot pointing the end of chosen programme)

Water is leaking from soap dispenser only at beginning of cycle


Remove dispenser drawer, and check for soap blockage.
Locate and clean filter, check to see if there is one located behind bottom kick strip, if no filter there, then you will have to remove lower rear cover of washer, and locate and remove the large black hose on bottom of tub.
Remove filter and plastic ball,clean and replace.
Refit filter, ball and hose ,ensuring it is fitted correctly.
Test for leaks.
Plz ratev my solution.
Thanks.

Hi, Does the drum turn during the wash cycle? When it comes to the spin cycle does it go through to the end without the drum turning? It sounds like it could be the motor needs new carbon brushes. Regards, Tom.

Water leaking (Aquarius 1200)


don't think using quick wash should make a difference as water intake is the same take drawer out and wash thoroughly especially the rinse compartment. if gunged up the water overflows the compartment and leaks down the front. otherwise, you may have a blockage in the hose from the drawer to the tub. take top off, remove this hose and clean disconnect from mains when you do this
