Hotpoint Aquarius WF 240 Front loader

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

To access the thin tube you must open up the back panel of the machine.

    Power off the wall, open behind the machine you will find a thin tube coming from the switch area to the exit pump area. Carefully disconnect this pipe from the top & blow into it, it should be free, if not unblock or replace. You can insert another pipe into the top & blow, you will hear a click; it means your presssure switch is okay. Refit carefully. This thin pipe adjusts your water level in the machine. Dont forget the exit hose behnd your machine is inserted at a particular height, abt 3 feet from ground.

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

Lots of water pouring out on to the floor from the laundry soap dispenser in my front loader and doesn't say any error and when i start it pours out


Disconnect first the mains, power plug off the wall. You could have a clog in your soap drawer; pull the dispenser drawer completely out. There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer to remove. Clean the soap drawer with an old tooth brush. The usual block could be old soap, softener, etc. (you could also be using too much soap powder). I usually use just above 125ml (my measure cup says ml, I use front loader powder for the 5.5kg load) The wash is very gud. This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.
Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Next could be one of hoses has become loose, should be re-fixed. Examine by removing top of the front loader; this will give you a gud view of the pipes.If helped, click.

Water coming out of soap drawer


Some washing machines, can flood water out of the soap dispenser when a hose gets blocked (usually with un dissolved soap powder) .Water flooding out of the front of a washing machine's soap dispenser can also be an indication of overfilling or a partial pump blockage if it does it when spinning.
Black gunge in the top of the soap dispenser can cause water to spray towards the front and leak. Take out the soap dispenser drawer and look at the roof of the soap dispenser. If it's covered in black gunge, blocking some of the water holes, it could be causing problems. In extreme cases you have to replace the dispenser.

The water is not draining away. Hotpoint WD63


filter is located at the bottom rear of the appliance... if its pump obstruction then to lay the drain hose into a bowl is a means of getting the water out manually.. if its a blockage and water wont drain this way then lay the unit down on its R/H side (not soap dispenser side)....then acces to the filter can be made without flooding the place..best if 2 persons were to do this as the machine can be heavy when full with water and clothes.. best of luck..

You cant seal off the inlet, but you can get a Y adapter, its a hose that splits into 2 outlets. They are most often used to hook up steam dryers but will work for wha you need, this will allow you to use it but it will not get the best cleaning results

Water is leaking from soap dispenser only at beginning of cycle


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.
Plz ratev my solution.
Thanks.
