Re: hotpoint washer dryer leaking water whilst drying

Driers work by running cold water down the back plate of the machine so the hot damp air condence's on to it. It works on the same principle as your bathroom mirror, because its colder than the air around it the moistier in the air condence's on to it. Most machines use a seperate inlet valve from the cold water to do this, they are proned to rub against the back of the drum.Take the top cover off the machine and check the hose's from the cold inlet onto the back of the machine you'll probably find a hole worn in it.

Hi i have a leak under my hotpoint wdl540 the pipes are all clean and dry and the washing machine still works where would the water be coming from?

Could possibly be a little knick in the door seal or from the corner of the dispenser (the drawer in known to leak and the best remedy is to adjust the front feet so the unit is tipping back slightly, this allows gravity to help the flow of water in the drawer ). The valves could be leaking on the inner side if the machine, Really depends on whether it is a flood type leak or just a small puddle/drip. Run the machine pulled out, whilst stood on some newspaper, this should help trace the area of origin. Keep an eye out when it drains that your plumbing isn't blocked and so the drained water comes out of the standpipe instead of flowing away. Keep me posted or repost if you need further advice. All the best.

Whirlpool Duet Sport Dryer front load leaks water underneath the dryer when drying heavy duty clothes

The clothes then are too wet for the heat to evaporate. Spin extra time to get rid of as much water as possible before putting them in dryer.

Hotpoint aqurious leaking at front underneath,concrete block wet at front towards door,alot of water coming out,any ideas thanks.david

Carefully check the door seal for any sign of a hole or tear in the seal.
Or it could be leaking from the drum front or the drum front seal, this is another seal , not the door seal., you cannot see this without removing the front panel.

I have water leaking from the dispensing tray, only on the pre wash filling..any suggestions I have a hotpoint washer dryer wd64

Check the level of the machine, may be leaning slightly forward allowing water to leak on that one fill cycle. Lift the front a little by using the adjustable feet and see if it stops.

Major leak after 20mins into wash cycle!

Have a good look at door seal., and see if you can see any hole or tear in rubber.If o/k, then remove rear panel, and watch whilst it is running, and see if you can see any sign of water coming from anywhere.
Make sure the water is not running down the front from the dispenser, which would suggest a blockage in the dispenser drawer.
These are the steps I would take first.
Also make sure the waste outlet is clear
Plz leave rating and any comment you may have.

Dryer not wrking - letting in water

Does the water come in all the time? If so turn off each supply line faucet to identify which line is leaking and take that valve inside the washer apart and clean it out, if not completely replace that module. Let me know more about what exactly is going on.
