Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Soap powder remains in the soap compartment

I have a 2 year old Hotpoint Aquarius WF541 and after each cycle  a large amount of soap powder remains in the drawer. I have removed the inlet pipe, cleaned the drawer and inside with bleach and put the washing machine on at 95 wash (empty) 
Any suggestions

Depending on which compartment the powder is remaining in, it could be low water pressure causing the problem.
If it is taking some down, but not all the powder, then try putting the powder towards the front of the compartment.
If all else fails then I suggest you get one of these dispenser balls that you put straight in the drum with the washing.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Hotpoint aquarius wf541. leak's water when filling. I've cleaned the filter but stil leaking. ?.


Hi

This is either the large pipe that connects from the bottom of the outer drum, to the suds pump inlet, or the pump bodies itself, or the seal inside the pump. This may be tricky to work out where the leak is coming from, but just use a good torch, with the back removed, and watch it through a short cycle. If it is a plastic pump, they usually have small screws holding the 2 parts of the pump body together. Try tightening these, if they are loose. Also if the machine is over 8 years old and has had a lot of use, it will most likely be the pump seal.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Hi Sheena from retired Englishman in SW France @ 21:51 Sun evening (nothing on TV!)

Sorry if this seems a silly question/answer but have you removed the dispenser completely and ensured that it is not blocked anywhere, especially the conditioner/softener drawer area? Normally the pre-wash and wash powders sit in open ended trays to drop straight into the drum but the conditioner does not. It is not allowed out until the right time- it has to be flushed/siphoned out by the water feed. A common problem is that the tube/pipe which is in this tray down which it siphons is blocked- possible by a mix of powder and conditioner. It is easy to accidentally let the powder spill into it when filling.
My advice is to pull the drawer completely out and give it a good clean out, especially the conditioner bit!
Dispensers are removed either by pulling almost all of the way out then 1) pressing down on the lip at the rear to clear or 2) releasing the clip underneath the dispenser or 3) by lifting upwards just as you are pulling it out, whichever is the way for your machine.
Hope this cures the leaking!
Best of luck,

John C

After the dishwasher runs there is a lot of soap left in the soap dispenser. I've tried powder and liquid. Liquid is a bit better. I've tried using less soap but there still is a lot left. Also my glasses...


With the LG LDF6810 model, this is not a common problem. Please try the following test, With and empty dishwasher, add a small to normal amount of dry dishwasher powder and run an (empty) load.
Check to see if any soap remains in the dispenser cup.
If any remains, here are three things to do: 1.) Upgrade your dishwasher detergent to a name brand powder (e.g.: Electrosol or Cascade)
2.) When you load the dishwasher, do not place large items in the front, near the door/soap dispenser.
3.) Before you load the dirty dishes for the next several loads, with your hand, turn both the upper and lower wash arms so they point at the door. Load as you normally do and push the racks fully in. Before you close the door, spin both the upper and lower arms and confirm that they spin freely and neither hits anything. if either does not spin freely, pull out the rack and arrange so the arms can spin freely.
I find that the only time I have left over detergent powder is when the wash arms do not spin freely.
This is a common problem on most every energy star/water conserving dishwashers.
Please report back what you find, OK?

Aquarius hotpoint wf541 wont pump the water out at the end of the cycle


You need to clean the filter.
Remove lower rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean the filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well
Hope this helps with your problem
