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....

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

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
