Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF215 Front Load Washer
Machine leaking through soap dispenser (flooded entire room) It appears that the water doesn't enter the drum and I can see it still in the black rubber tube which is just below the soap dispenser drawer . I have taken the top of the machine but can't see how to get further access to this tube or how also to unclip it . I am assuming there is a blockage in this tube going to the drum . I can manage to give it a squeeze and it feels soft . the water remains in this tube
Our Aquarius started to pour water out from te soap disenser. This occurred when it tried to pump the existing water out.
The problem was a blocked filter which was easily fixed. We removed the metal plate at the back of the machine (down at teh bottom where the water out pipe exited. You can then see a large cone shaped black fitting held onto the main drum by a large metal jubilee clip. You simply have to unsrew the metal jubilee clip and pull down the cone shaped fitting. Inside the cone is a filter (shaped as a cup) with a ball inside it. Ours was clogged with shirt stiffeners, assorted small coins and fluffy etc. This blocked the outlet and resulted in the water being pumped out exiting via the soap dispenser instead.
So a simple job to sort it

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
