    hi if you are saying machines fills and before it actually starts its wash cycle ? the water is leaking from door and the drawer on the top front of machine ? it sounds very much like the machine water level is over filling ? there is a devise on the inner r/hand side of machine located on side panel it is circular and has an elec connection and a small hose either rubber or plastic attached to it ? this devise regulates w/level by water pressure in tube which act on a diagphram in the unit and trips out the water flow from feed pipes via solenoid/s for hot/cold supply may i suggest ou unplug machine and water pipes if need be ? then remove the top screws from rear panel (these also holt the top panel) then tilt+nd pull back top pane clear from front and lift off panel look inside machine for devise mentioned above now possibilities?? either small hose is kinked ? or blocked somewhere ? this will not allow water to actuate devise ? or you may have faulty connections or devise it self may be rusted inside? if you have/know somebody who has a volt meter they can check both elec feed to devise and whether it is shutting off at correct w/level thus shutting off water supply solenoid/s water level should only fill to approx 1/2 level in drum max visible thro door glass ? either way if you check as above it should reveal the fault and you can diy saving $$$s on repair hope this helps look 4ward to any update you may post on progress good luck and best wishes

Had the same problem. I unplugged the machine from the mains. pulled it out from the unit and removed the lid. checked the black rubber hose which leads from the drawer to the drum. it was full of water. i carefully squeezed the pipe and tried to clean it out with warm water to see if it was clogged. still leaking. i then Removed the green paddle on the inside and turned the drum to line up with the black rubber hose that leads from the drawer. I very carefully used a wire coat hanger to put through the gap in the drum left by the paddle. Moved left and right, oh look.... A sock! I manipulated it out of the gap, checked the hose. Water had gone. Put everything back together. No leak. All done in under an hour :-)

There is water leaking from the bottom of the door of our Hotpoint Aquarius WMA 56 washing machine. What could be the cause.


Have you been wiping the glass off in the door. A buildup of detergent crust on the bottom will cause the seal to weep.

Horible smell comingfromthe drum, took the filter out to clean it, now it is leaking, what can I do? ps smell still there, have tried 1 95o wash with no joy


For the pump try taking filter back out and putting back again for smell clean out the rubber door seal with soapy water after the door seal is clean clean the despencer draw fully by taking it out. When you washed the seal and draw get washing machine clean for local super market and do a 95oc wash it should smell nice now if not could be drains hope this helps.

Water comes out of draw and door sometimes on spin cycle and does not drain properly


Sounds like you have a split in the door seal and also your pump may be partially blocked.

Hotpoint aqurious leaking at front underneath,concrete block wet at front towards door,alot of water coming out,any ideas thanks.david


Carefully check the door seal for any sign of a hole or tear in the seal.
Or it could be leaking from the drum front or the drum front seal, this is another seal , not the door seal., you cannot see this without removing the front panel.

Water coming out of the powder draw when the draw is closed


Hi
The hose from the drawer into the tub is blocked or kinked, not allowing the water down quickly enough

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.
