Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF865 Front Load Washer
I have had the machine for approx 18 months, and now intermitantly it leaks water over the floor during it's cycle. I have removed the rear cover and cleaned out the filter, but it is still happening. I have noticed slight water streaks come from the front door seal, but on close inspection all looks ok + i cleaned the seal just in case. I still have the same problem.
I had a leak from the soap dispenser of my Hotpoint WF865. I worked out that the gloopy nature of the fabric conditioner was not allowing it to escape from the blue part of the soap tray via the siphon outlet. When additional water was injected into the soap tray, it just ran across the surface of the gloopy fabric conditioner and out of the front of the soap tray. THE CURE is simply to dilute the fabric conditioner 50:50 before putting it into the soap tray. The intermittent nature of the leak is due to sometimes not using fabric conditioner. It's also worth cleaning out the siphon part of the blue insert. We now have a leak free machine!

Put a newspaper under the machine, it will help you to find out from where does the water leaks. Good luck!
