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.

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.

Hotpoint Aquarius WD640 Progressive problems now causing flooding


Normally if it leaks then the one way valve in the back of the machine is clogged, you remove the back, undo the jubilee clips on the 3" black hose & clean the ball.

Could SOAP DISPENSER be caked with soap???


POWDERED DETERGENTS GET CLOGGED ALOT IN THOSE DISPENSERS. I ADVISE CUSTOMERS TO FILL THERE WASHER AND ADD SOAP WHEN IT STARTS TO AGITATE WHEN USING MORE THAN A 1/2 CUP OF POWDER ... THEN ADD YOUR CLOTHES ... THE WASHER HAS A SAFTEY SWITCH WILL STOP MOST WASHERS WHEN AGITATING OR IN SPIN CYCLE,SO YOU CAN LOAD CLOTHES ... OTHER THAN THAT ... ALL YOU CAN DO IS KEEP THAT DISPENSER FLUSHED OUT WITH HOT WATER AFTER EVERY WASH. JUST POUR HOT WAYER TROUGH IT ... IF THE WATER BACKS UP (EVEN WITH A SLOW POURING) THE DISPENSER IS PLUGGED AND NEEDS TO BE FLUSHED OUT WITH A HOSE. GOOD LUCK AND STAY DRY !!!
