The spitting water problem is often caused by the filter assembly in the sump pipe just before the pump getting blocked. This easlily clogs up but is not easy to clean out. Hotpoint do not fit an easy access pump filter to this model but they place the filter into the black rubber pipe that runs from the drum to the pump. When this clogged up the machine empties too slowly and starts to spin when too much water is left in the drum, this forces water up and out of the soap tray. There is a minor design fault as the pressure sensor is attached to the same sump pipe and even when the filter is blocked the suction from pump still drops the pressure on the sensor. So you end up with a drum that has not emptied out enough water but still goes on to spin . The result is niagra falls from the soap tray.

To rectify this you will need to pull the machine out, unplug it, remove the rear lower back panel and dismatle the black sump to pump pipe. Once this is clear you will find the machine runs fine again. Its not an easy jobs and water spills everywear but if you are a keen DIY'r you should be OK. I just cleared mine out and found coins, shirt collar inserts and a large washing instruction label in the sump pipe. Now its clear and the machine has stopped spilling water from the soap dispenser.

As for the noise on spin, check all concrete is firmly fixed to the drum as they work loose

    This was very useful, we have had water spilling out of the soap tray for a few weeks since moving to a new house. I was not even aware that there was a filter on the pump but on inspecting it I also found several coins, shirt inserts and pieces of cloth from vanish magnets.

    On removing these, the washing machine runs perfectly well again!

The filter is attached to the bottom of the drum, take the panel off the rear bottom and there is a large jubilee clip about 3" diameter, undo that and the filter is in there, put back carefully to avoid leaks. it only fits properly one way so make a note.
may be your plumbing also.

brick dust glenn?
the weight is loose and needs to be tightened carefully. if it's been doing that for a while the plastic drum studs may be worn away which will mean renewing . sorry

Kenmore dishwasher making "spitting" or "sputtering" noise during operation

The easiest way to confirm if the arms are blocked is by turning all the arms in the machine to a certain same position and running the machine for a few minutes in its wash cycle. Open the door and see if the arms have moved. If not, check all the holes in the arms for blockages. Sometimes its very difficult to clean them. You may have to poke a pin or something into hole and then shake the obstruction out through the large inlet hole under the spray arm itself.

Washing machine water comming out from bottom

Check the hose that connects from the tub to the water pump. Next time you do a load remove the front panel and set the machine for a "small load" so there won't be alot of water. When the machine begins to agitate shut off the timer and move it to the final spin mode and turn it on. Here is where you want to watch that hose (maybe with a flashlight) as the tub begins to spin and the water is being pumped out, focus on where the hose connects to the drum. Usually as the spin increases the vibration will cause the hose connection to become loose and water will start spitting out. If you don't see any leaks in the hose, check the water pump itself. NOTE: DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE MACHINE WHILE IT IS IN OPERATION! JUST LOOK IN AT THE HOSE, DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING AND KEEP YOUR HAND BEHIND YOUR BACK! THE OTHER HAND ON A FLASHLIGHT FROM OUTSIDE THE MACHINE.
