Hotpoint WD64, leaking water from soap drawer

The above problem has continued even after checking for blockages at the black rubber pipe that connects the soap drawer to the drum area. I have also checked the sump drain pipe??, black in colour below the drum, that holds the filter. Even after emtying the filter the machine still leaks a lot of water on initial fill. After that it seems to be ok. Soap drawer area is clean and soap free except for the stuff going into the machine. Anyone got any ideas. Thanks Alan

Re: Hotpoint WD64, leaking water from soap drawer

Your condenser is blocked,you might be lucky and get away with just cleaning it, but most of the time it is just best to change it. You will have to take the back off again it is the plastic component with the fan motor attached, disconnect the 2 black tubes to it [note where they come from] unscrew the 3 bolts at the bottom , disconnect the wires going to the fan motor. If you are going to change the condensor you will have to take the fan motor off aswell MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE MACHINE FROM THE MAINS. GOOD LUCK

Re: Hotpoint WD64, leaking water from soap drawer

Just gave the condenser a major overhaul, a bit tricky to remove but sorted. What is interesting is that the small 'vent' tube from the detergent box was blocked with fibres etc in the condenser housing, it is now clear and it seems to have resolved the problem.
I have the main water pressure back to 100% now, technically unsure whether this was causing a airlock causing the water level to rise in the tray etc, Ant thoughts?
Fingers crossed!

Try turning down your cold water pressure. some times the pressure it is so great that the water hits the soap dispense and spill over. this is a common problem with front loaders??

The problem can be a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch detects water level. Pressure switch not working correctly may result in overfill. Try cleaning the rubber hose connected to the pressure switch. Check also pressure from inlet hose and look for blockage in detergent drawer.

Remove dispenser drawer, and check for soap blockage.
Locate and clean filter, check to see if there is one located behind bottom kick strip, if no filter there, then you will have to remove lower rear cover of washer, and locate and remove the large black hose on bottom of tub.
Remove filter and plastic ball,clean and replace.
Refit filter, ball and hose ,ensuring it is fitted correctly.
Test for leaks.

Hotpoint WD440 Drawer overflowing

I would check the inlet hose from the bottom of the soap dispenser where it goes into the drum for a soap blockage.
undesolved powder can build up here and prevent the water entering the drum
You can access this hose by removing top cover.
the hose is on the left side front.
This should solve your problem.
Please leave feed back.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF 240 Front loader

first remove the soap drawer, this should expose locating holes for screws, remove these first, then remove the screws from on top of the plastic front panel and then the plastic front panel tilts forward to remove, taking extra care with wires etc the soap drawer is now loose still attached to the rubber pipe, which is now easy to get to for inspection, or removal to clear it out. first of all just check that the machine drum is not filling up totally so it is overflowing back out of the soap drawer, if so that is a different fault entirely and does not need taking to bits the same

Soap dispenser slow leak

Plug off the wall socket first. Remove screws to remove the top of your machine. Check to see if the rubber hoses are connected well to the dispenser chamber, if not connect them properly. Another thing could be your dispenser drawer; you could pull it out gently to clean it; or you could even use a tooth brush for access.
