The shaft seal on the plastic tub in the machine may be leaking or the pump out hose that goes to the water pump may be leaking,if you can remove a cover from the machine and put water in the machine and watch it go through the cycles you may be able to spot where the problem is

Hi I have a Hotpoint Aqurius WMA 37 model. At first it was not spinning properly, and now its started to spin but there is alot of water leaking from the door as well as from the dispenser drawer, it...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would first check the state of the drum by taking the back off but-
REMOVE POWER BEFORE YOU DO-

The whole of the support mechanism should then be visible- the 'spider', the belt, the motor AND the shock absorbers/dampeners. It could be that something has broken and requires fixing (first).
As for the water coming out of the dispenser drawer I would also check if it is absolutely clean and clear, especially the softener bit. Following is my standard/generic document, copied and pasted ;-0)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catch underneath or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of these should enable you remove it
(I am having to guess some of the following!)
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover on it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. This is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.

Good luck,

Hi there I have a Hotpoint WF541 washing machine. It has worked fine for 2 years, but now leaks a small amount of water from the soap dispenser down the front of the machine onto the floor. If...


Hi Sheena from retired Englishman in SW France @ 21:51 Sun evening (nothing on TV!)

Sorry if this seems a silly question/answer but have you removed the dispenser completely and ensured that it is not blocked anywhere, especially the conditioner/softener drawer area? Normally the pre-wash and wash powders sit in open ended trays to drop straight into the drum but the conditioner does not. It is not allowed out until the right time- it has to be flushed/siphoned out by the water feed. A common problem is that the tube/pipe which is in this tray down which it siphons is blocked- possible by a mix of powder and conditioner. It is easy to accidentally let the powder spill into it when filling.
My advice is to pull the drawer completely out and give it a good clean out, especially the conditioner bit!
Dispensers are removed either by pulling almost all of the way out then 1) pressing down on the lip at the rear to clear or 2) releasing the clip underneath the dispenser or 3) by lifting upwards just as you are pulling it out, whichever is the way for your machine.
Hope this cures the leaking!
Best of luck,

John C

Carpets are wet in foot wells after all the frosty weather, and not just when it rains. Any solutions?


Have you been adding any coolant? You could have a leaking heater core, which will usually leak to the inside, wetting the carpets in the well. Most American cars locate the heater core on the passenger side of the firewall, so a leak will typically show up on only the passenger side floor. I once had an Audi that had the heater core mounted just about dead center on the firewall. When it started leaking, both sides of the well(s) got wet.

Wet passenger side


I believe the problem is a leak in your heater core. The water would run down the inside of the firewall or near it thus running under the mat.

Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2


Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck
