Water from soap dispenser when spinning

I have an Ariston A1636, during the wash cycle water comes out of the soap dispenser. The water seems to come back up out of the drum and onto the floor. I have just moved house, would it have something to do with water pressure and it is now filling up too much?

    Ive sorted it, the filter was blocked. However this machine has an internal filter so you need to disconnect from water and mains & take the plastic panel off at the back of the machine where the waste pipe comes out.

    When this is off you will see a black rubber thing coming from the drum connected by a large hose clip, undo the clip & the filter with a white plastic ball is inside it does come out but when putting it back in make sure it lines up with the rubber knob at the bottom (hole in the bottom of filter for it to stick through) make sure you reconnect securely...took me a couple of attempts, the black rubber thing should go nearly all the way up to the drum.

    Put the back plate back on & your good to go...until the next time!

    solution cured mine too....thanks :)

    took all of 10 mins to tip the machine in its side (back plastic flap is a waste if time removing) and loosen the pipe clip......cleaned out my filter, was blocked with 2 colour catchers, 2 collar stiffeners and a shirt button :) i would only add that it would be a good idea to cover the motor with a tea towl as a little water drops out and could fall on the motor which i would imagine is not good.

    added some photos of the under side while machine was on its right side....

Water leaking from detergent drawer


The first thing to do is take note of what the washer is doing when water leaks out in order to help pinpoint the cause. Does it only leak when filling? Is it leaking during wash or rinses? Or is it leaking only when it goes into spin?

Only leaks when filling

  • Water pressure that's too strong. Some dispensers can't cope with high water pressure. Make sure the washer is level as one leaning forward can leak if combined with high water pressure. Try turning the tap on the washer down. Only suspect this if you know the water pressure is high and it looks like it's gushing in quite fast on fill
  • If there is an optional detergent flap fitted in the drawer for holding liquid detergent make sure it is removed or drawn into the up position if using powder otherwise it prevents detergent running down into the drum
  • A build up of grease and slime in the nozzles at the top of the dispenser where the water flows in causing water to spray at the front and run out when filling. Check this article -black jelly-like substance in soap dispenser and on soap drawer (In extreme cases I've had to replace the dispenser.)
  • A build up of undissolved detergent in the base of the soap dispenser under the drawer (depending on the design). Remove the soap drawer and check the bottom of the soap dispenser for a build up of detergent that could allow water to run over the lip of the dispenser
  • Blocked dispenser hose: Some washing machines can flood water out of the soap dispenser if the hose leading out of the dispenser into the tub gets blocked. Blockages can be something put into the drawer by a child or a chunk of undissolved detergent tablet. Indesit, and Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and it wasn't wide enough. Undissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor water pressure can block this hose solid causing water to back up. Unplug machine, remove lid and feel this hose carefully for obstructions.
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts to fill and never stops it will flood out of the drawer eventually - Washing machine overfills
Leaks out of drawer during the wash or rinse cycle
  • Too many suds? If you can see the door glass is white with foam up to the top it could be foaming out of the dispenser. Too much foam in the washing machine
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts washing but the water doesn't stop coming in it will eventually fill the drum so much it will start to pour out of the soap drawer and other places. If this is the fault you should be able to see the drum is so full of water it's making a different sound, maybe labouring under the load, and the door glass full to the top with water. You should also hear that water is still running into the machine and be able to detect it by opening the drawer. However, in most cases an over filling washing machine should trigger an error code long before it gets to this stage but if you suspect overfilling check this page - Washing machine overfills
  • Surging: There are (often intermittent) faults that can cause the motor to spin out of control on wash or rinses. Instead of turning slowly the fault causes the motor to surge into spin instead which throws the laundry and all the water about violently. Water can then be forced out of the soap dispenser drawer. This fault should be relatively rare these days but if you observe this behaviour call an engineer to diagnose the cause.
Leaks from drawer only when spinning
  • If it only comes out on spin it can be caused by a partial blockage preventing the water being pumped out fast enough resulting in excess water being thrown around on spin and backing up into the dispenser. This fault is similar to the surging fault described in the last list but different in that the problem only occurs when it's on a proper spin cycle and much of the water has been pumped away. Troubleshooting this fault is all about finding out why it isn't emptying the water properly which is usually due to a partial blockage. Follow the same troubleshooting as described for a washer not pumping any water out at all - Washing machine won't empty water
  • If water is being forced out of the drawer when the washer is spinning but it is on wash or rinse and shouldn't be spinning follow the procedure for surging in the previous section above

I was washing towels on cotton (1) cold water , at the end of cycle during drying a F-02 keep flashing on the control panel. This is a new machine used about 3 months


Hello
F02 Is a suds error code or water is to soapy.You need to use the E A type soap.

Try running the machine on rinse and spin.And then go through a normal cycle with no soap.

Water coming out of soap drawer


Some washing machines, can flood water out of the soap dispenser when a hose gets blocked (usually with un dissolved soap powder) .Water flooding out of the front of a washing machine's soap dispenser can also be an indication of overfilling or a partial pump blockage if it does it when spinning.
Black gunge in the top of the soap dispenser can cause water to spray towards the front and leak. Take out the soap dispenser drawer and look at the roof of the soap dispenser. If it's covered in black gunge, blocking some of the water holes, it could be causing problems. In extreme cases you have to replace the dispenser.

Water leak


open the back of your washing machine, you'll see a series of tubular figure. try to identify on which of the tube correspond to your soap tray, see if the rubber seal is broken or cut into pieces, if it does, then buy a replacement or if you don't have time, try to find an old rubber interior that has been used for vehicle tire, just cut same figure as the your old rubber seal and use it as a replacement
