Question about Hotpoint Ariston Aquarius WD420 Front Load All-in-One Washer/Dryer

1 Answer

Water constantly in the drum of the washer dryer

We have a hotpoint aquarios washer dryer (WD420). Water keeps collecting in the drum of the machine, we perform a pump out function and the water drains no problem, the pump is not blocked. When a wash cycle is finished the clothes are still sitting in water. These is a buzzing noise coming from the cold water supply which stops when you isolate the water supply to the machine. I'm wondering if the solenoid valves are constantly open and just letting water pass into the machine. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks
Kev Gilbert

It is possible that the inlet valve is sticking,open
Pull the dispenser drawer right out, and see if you can see water trickling in after it has finished.
If you can, then the valve is not shutting off properly, and you will have to replace it.
The other thing you can do is to remove the top cover, and remove one by one the black hoses that go from the valve to the dispenser, and see if you can see water coming through, if you can then replace valve.
The other possibility is that the valve is getting a permanent feed from the board/timer, to check this you would need a meter to test for voltage.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Water not coming to drum


check the water taps are turned on and there are no kinks in the hoses if the water is on and the hoses arent kinked then the fault lies with the water inlet valve (the valve unit where the hoses screw onto on the machine) to access the valves remove the top cover of the machine and directly behind where the hose goes on you will see the electrical valves

Sometimes when using the tumble dryer of my Hotpoint WD420 I get a puddle of water on the floor. Doesn't happen with every use. Do you know what the problem might be?


I suspect your dryer vent is blocked or partially clogged.. Also if your washer is not opperating properly putting wet close in the dryer could also cause this.....hope this helps!
