SOURCE: Water leaking through detergent tray of my Hotpoint WF860

It sounds like the washer is not draining properly.

Remove lower rear cover of washer, locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of tub.
remove plastic filter inside hose, and clean same.
Refit filter and hose, making sure it is on properly.
Be careful when you remove the hose, as there will be water in there.
As an extra precaution, remove soap draw,and thoroughly clean all parts, particularly,the conditioner parts
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.

1, your pump may be blocked by fluff coins and other debris.
2. more likely bushes worn on the main motor not giving enough umphhh (loverly word) to go through a complete spin....Bushes easily replacable. Job start to finish with parts on hand a machine mechanic 10-15mins top Diy er like me an hour allways have trouble finding the right spanner... Good luck.

Check the brushes in the motor, and replace if less than 5mm or or so in length.

Hotpoint first edition automatic washing machine washes clothes .


I've got a Hotpoint First Edition WM52 that stopped spinning at the end of the wash cycle. Called the repair man and he said it was most likely just the filter blocked? Suggested I reemove the front base panel and try to locate the filter remove, clean and replace. Front panel wouldn't come off, base panel at the rear, 6 screws to remove revealing a black squeezy hose with slide grips holding them on, on removal of the hose two ten pence pieces, a one pence piece and a childs hair clip blackened with dirt sat blocking the top of the hose.
Hope this helps; repair man saved me £58+vat just with a few words and a bit of persistence from myself

Hotpoint First Edition 1000 WM52 the turner thing for different washes is very hard to turn now, the machine seems to struggle.


Hi.

It sounds like the timer is stiff, remove top cover, and spray WD40 liberally over and into the timer unit at the front right of the m/c.

If the motor is struggling to turn then you have another problem as well.

Good luck.

I think you will find that if you check the brushes, you will probably need to replace them.

WD640 Aquarious supersilent washer/dryer leaking from powder draw


during the rinse the machine uses a higher level of water, therefore check the door seal for holes,if the water is leaking from the soap drawer in the spin then this suggests that you may have a blockage in the outlet hose or in the sump filter, to check the filter remove the sump hose, the filter is hidden in the hose.

Why dont my machine take the soap powder


Assuming that the bit the water is going into is the prewash dispenser (rather than a bleach or conditioner dispenser), why not just put the powder into there? Some of these machines can be a bit illogical about where the main wash powder is meant to go - sometimes even varies depending on which cycle you're running. If you can find a place that will take the powder at the right time, your problem is solved. If the instructions say different, it might even be them that's wrong. Wouldn't be the first time. A.
