Hi, Well this is quite a common problem which can be caused by so many different things. Did you change washing powder or liquid? Was there loads of bubbles in the machine? If no to these then uplug the machine and tip it backwards so you can gain access to the underneath! Look at the motor! And on the rear of the motor there is a magnet which is a taco for the speed of the motor! These sometimes fall off causing the machine to wash at spin speed in short bursts! Have a look at this and get back to me with your findings.....

I have a HotPoint washing machine, and it is leaking water bad. It leaks whenever the spin cycle starts, and the washing machine shakes pretty bad in that cycle. It's my ex girlfriends washing


The leaking could be coming from the exit port on the washing machine. Check the hoses leading from the washer to the drainage port in the wall. As for the shaking, check that the level adjustments at the bottom of the machine are level.

Not spinning with clothes in it , but its fine when empty??????????????


Could be too much washing powder, excess washing powder holds water in the clothes and makes the load too heavy to spin.
Try washing a load with NO washing powder (if this is the case there will probably be enough residual powder to wash the clothes anyway).
Follow the correct amount of powder/liquid, more is not better, just wears out your machine.

Leak from lower door section and from powder door thing.


This could be a partially or completely seized/failed pump.
Before a machine goes in to a spin cycle, it runs the pump to empty all the water out. It used to be quite common that the machine does not check all the water has gone before spinning, it just runs the pump for a set time which if the pump is okay, is long enough to empty it.
If a spin is then started with quite a lot of water left in the drum, it gets thrown everywhere including back out of the powder/conditioner draw. Also the sheer strain of spinning a large amount of water can force water through an otherwise okay door seal.
Unless you are comfortable working on the machine yourself, call an engineer.

Water gush in power drawer


You have a seal that is not working right for one. and 2 you have a water pump that is not working. because it is not limiting the water supply.

Why does my AWM5080 leak water after the spin cycle?


try taking the back panel off of the machine, (make sure its unplugged first) under the drum you will see a short black rubber hose with jubilee type clips holding it on, it may have come loose during a spin, you will need a different type of screwdriver to undo it, like a hexagon type, hope that helps!
