Hotpoint WD440 Drawer overflowing

I have a Hotpoint WD440 Washer/Dryer and the drawer for the washing powder overflows with water whenever we turn it on.

I've cleaned the drainage filter at the base of the unit (white plastic thing with a ball from a black pipe opened via a clip) as I thought it would be this that was blocked but although I removed lots of rubbish from it it still overflows. The drum itself is not filling up with water.
Has anyone got any advice as to what it might be... Is there another filter where a blockage might have formed or could it be a pump?

    Hi,



    Thanks for the reply.



    I've tried cleaning it out and filling it with tap water and it flows out ok. When I remove the drawer after turning the macinhe on and then off the compartment is full of water and very very very slowly drains out.

    The compartment the drawer fits in is full of water. The actual draw lets water throught fine. The compartment takes a very very long time (if at all) for this water to enter the drum after the machine is turned on (and then very quickly turned off to save my kitchen floor :D).



    Sorry barkencoa, I should have been more explicit in my first post.

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 soap drawer leaking, wfooo


The problem is not a leaking soap container. The problem is that it is overflowing because the line from it to the washer tub is clogged. This happens mostly when using powdered detergents. Check you operating instructions for soap dispenser cleaning procedures.

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.

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.

Our Washer is overflowing through the dispenser drawer


water out of the soap drawer could be a multitude of things, start with removing the drawer and checking for blockage in the pipe from the drawer to the drum, next try turning down the water pressure a little sometimes that can help, or has the machine filled up totally till it overflows, that is a blocked pressure switch pipe, start with looking for the blockage first, work with safety unplug if removing lid etc. rate me if i have helped, thank you

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
