Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

I have a kenmore HE 2t washing machine. It is leaking out the bottom of the front loading door, especially on the delicate cycle. The gasket and door seem to be fine.


Do check the rubber door seal again.

Often you can get a few months' extra life out of the door seal by removing it and replacing it upside down, if it will fit.

Washer leaks


the door seal is gone check around the inside of it for a tear
you can slide a bit of newspaper under it and run a cycle on

then pull out the paper and you can see what part of the machine its coming from
if its near to the front its prob the door seal

quite easy to change by heating it up before fitting
do the drum end first

The symptoms that you describe are caused by bearing failure. The water seal in the wash tub has failed, allowing water to leak into the bearing causing the bearings to rust. As the bearings start to rust, they will not roll properly and start to make a rumbling sound. The sound get louder the faster the bearing turns.
It a major job to repair since the washer has to be taken apart and the wash drum needs to be removed to replace the seal and bearings. Get a few estimates before deciding whether the washer is worth the cost to repair or replace. Sorry.

I have a wma 10 which is a couple of years old. The door seal now leaks when the machine goes onto a spin? Is there anything that you can suggest?


Sounds like there is too much water left in the drum as it goes into the spin cycle, and the centrifugal force of the drum spinning is forcing the wate past the door seal probably, needs the filter cleaning, or the door seal itself may require replacing.

Leaking at each wash cycle


this sounds like the door seal has split,,,there not very pricy but a pain to fit,,,so here go's,,,
open the door,,look at the door seal pull it off the back of the door and you should fine a spring wire holding it there,,,undo this wire,,,now fold the seal into the washer over the inner drum,,,,there you will find the inner wire,,undo that wire and pull the seal out the washer door,,,,
to fit the new seal,,,turn the seal inside out and push it through the hole in the door then fit the inner wire on the inner drum first,,,unfold the seal and pull it through the door,,,now fit the outer wire,,,,not put the kettel on,,have a cup of tea take the pain killers for the head ache you just got,,, and think about how much money you just saved ????
now was it realy worth the trouble,,,i wonder? am i good or what?

Hotpoint aquarius 1000 WM62 leaks from the bottom at the front of the machine towards the end of the cycle. How do I fix this?


Carefully exmine the door seal for a hole or split, remove the clamp ring round front and pull seal of front of cabinet and check it carefully, if no sign of leak from seal, then it is going to be leaking from the plastic drum front of washer.
This will entail removing tye front panel.
Hope this helps.

Hi, there i a knocking noise during the spin cycle on my hotpoint aquarius 6kg wma56 washing machine?? How do i fix it?


Hi,
I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..
To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. Also another way to check is to move the inner durm up and down to see if there is any play in it
Check for bearing failure by seeing if there is any vertical movement between the moving stainless drum and the fixed outer drum. There should be no vertical movement between them - if there is the bearings have failed and will soon collapse. Check for rusty spray around where the pulley shaft enters the outer drum - early indication of seal and bearing failure. Another method of checking is to remove the drive belt and rotate the drum by hand - there should be no noise, roughness or resistance to rotation. Changing bearings is an involved job, only attempt if you are mechanically competent.
As for changing the bearings.
Power off, remove covers. Disconnect drive belt, remove drive pulley. Remove heater, thermostat and pressure switch. Check if drum splits at front, rear or the middle. If the drum is a plastic welded one- ie one which doesn't split, then its game over. If it splits at front or middle, drum will prob. need removal from machine. This involves dismantling the suspension and damping system and removal of door seal and concrete weights. Undo the drum fixing system - either a clamping ring or a series of peripheral bolts and split the drum. If the drum splits at the rear, removal from machine probably not required. Remove the clamping system and pull off the rear plate. Seal and bearings will come away with the plate. Seal needs to be dug out with a suitable lever and the old bearings hammered out with a punch from opposing sides of the backplate. Refitting is, as they say, a reversal of the above process.
However Unplug the appliance and take the top off.
Check the weight on the top to see if it's slack.
Open the door and with your palm upward put it on the edge of the drum.
Lift it until the weight comes on. Is there a lot of movement?
Press down on the inner drum and swing it side to side, does it sound/feel rough?
Finally, tip the machine rearward a little and from underneath check to see if the front weight is loose.
If all of the above are ok then it's likely the drum support spider has broken one of it's legs and the inner drum is knocking as it spins.
To sort this out you would need to strip the appliance down and remove the inner drum to try and change the bearings and the inner drum support.
This is a major strip down of the appliance.
Hope this helps

Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer


most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.
