Washer dryer leaks through soap dispenser draw while on spin

Hi
My Aquarius wdl520 washer/dryer leaks water through the saop dispenser draw. It fills ok but when trying to empty it wont, when the washer trys to spin the water comes up and out through the draw and onto the floor, i have checked the waste pipe and drain and all is ok iv even stood out side watching as it trys to empty and it is a slow trickle to the drain outside. Plus it wont dry either the clothes seem dryer after a spin. My normal wash consists of let the water come in wash then wait till its due to spin turn off and empty and fast spin over and over this is done by consistantly switching from buttons C and B. The manual says it has a self cleaning pump but not where it is for me to check. Please help i only bought this machine 6 months ago and im really starting to regret it.
Many Thanks

SOURCE: Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 Washer Dryer not drying.

Hi, I think the problem you have is with the cold water inlet valve? When your machine dries it uses a small amount of water at high pressure through a restricter fitted in the water inlet valve. These break down letting in to much water which cannot evaporate quick enough for it to pump out causing the washing to become wetter than after the wash/spin cycle. The only way of solving this is to replace th tree way water inlet valve. But make sure that the pump is working ok first and that there is nothing in the sump hose trap which is located underneath the washing machine out the bottom of the tub.
Good luck.................

There should be a small door at the front bottom of the machine, open it and unscrew the plunger. try that first as there could be a blockage.

The machine will not spin until the water is drained out.

Water leaking from detergent drawer


The first thing to do is take note of what the washer is doing when water leaks out in order to help pinpoint the cause. Does it only leak when filling? Is it leaking during wash or rinses? Or is it leaking only when it goes into spin?

Only leaks when filling

  • Water pressure that's too strong. Some dispensers can't cope with high water pressure. Make sure the washer is level as one leaning forward can leak if combined with high water pressure. Try turning the tap on the washer down. Only suspect this if you know the water pressure is high and it looks like it's gushing in quite fast on fill
  • If there is an optional detergent flap fitted in the drawer for holding liquid detergent make sure it is removed or drawn into the up position if using powder otherwise it prevents detergent running down into the drum
  • A build up of grease and slime in the nozzles at the top of the dispenser where the water flows in causing water to spray at the front and run out when filling. Check this article -black jelly-like substance in soap dispenser and on soap drawer (In extreme cases I've had to replace the dispenser.)
  • A build up of undissolved detergent in the base of the soap dispenser under the drawer (depending on the design). Remove the soap drawer and check the bottom of the soap dispenser for a build up of detergent that could allow water to run over the lip of the dispenser
  • Blocked dispenser hose: Some washing machines can flood water out of the soap dispenser if the hose leading out of the dispenser into the tub gets blocked. Blockages can be something put into the drawer by a child or a chunk of undissolved detergent tablet. Indesit, and Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and it wasn't wide enough. Undissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor water pressure can block this hose solid causing water to back up. Unplug machine, remove lid and feel this hose carefully for obstructions.
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts to fill and never stops it will flood out of the drawer eventually - Washing machine overfills
Leaks out of drawer during the wash or rinse cycle
  • Too many suds? If you can see the door glass is white with foam up to the top it could be foaming out of the dispenser. Too much foam in the washing machine
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts washing but the water doesn't stop coming in it will eventually fill the drum so much it will start to pour out of the soap drawer and other places. If this is the fault you should be able to see the drum is so full of water it's making a different sound, maybe labouring under the load, and the door glass full to the top with water. You should also hear that water is still running into the machine and be able to detect it by opening the drawer. However, in most cases an over filling washing machine should trigger an error code long before it gets to this stage but if you suspect overfilling check this page - Washing machine overfills
  • Surging: There are (often intermittent) faults that can cause the motor to spin out of control on wash or rinses. Instead of turning slowly the fault causes the motor to surge into spin instead which throws the laundry and all the water about violently. Water can then be forced out of the soap dispenser drawer. This fault should be relatively rare these days but if you observe this behaviour call an engineer to diagnose the cause.
Leaks from drawer only when spinning
  • If it only comes out on spin it can be caused by a partial blockage preventing the water being pumped out fast enough resulting in excess water being thrown around on spin and backing up into the dispenser. This fault is similar to the surging fault described in the last list but different in that the problem only occurs when it's on a proper spin cycle and much of the water has been pumped away. Troubleshooting this fault is all about finding out why it isn't emptying the water properly which is usually due to a partial blockage. Follow the same troubleshooting as described for a washer not pumping any water out at all - Washing machine won't empty water
  • If water is being forced out of the drawer when the washer is spinning but it is on wash or rinse and shouldn't be spinning follow the procedure for surging in the previous section above

I have a Hotpint Aquarius Washer/Dryer model number WDL520 that seems to have sprang a leak. First it was water only trickling from under the botton left hand side at the front. Now it gushes. Any ideas...


you could have a broken pipe on the filler or the seal has gone on the drum you would need to have a look, either way they are easy to fix or replace. drain pipe can leak if the pipe has come off the pump also check this but you will need to remove the case to get to look, always unplug the washer before touching any screws, remove case and look at the pipes and make sure they are seated in the right place.

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.

Water still leaking


If the water is running down the front from underneath the drawer, then I would say that the hose is blocked from the dispenser into the drum.
You need to remove top cover, locate large black hose from dispenser into drum, feel and manipulate it to free any blockage of soap powder..
If the water still does not go into the drum, then you are going to have to remove hose to clear blockage.

WD640 Aquarious supersilent washer/dryer leaking from powder draw


during the rinse the machine uses a higher level of water, therefore check the door seal for holes,if the water is leaking from the soap drawer in the spin then this suggests that you may have a blockage in the outlet hose or in the sump filter, to check the filter remove the sump hose, the filter is hidden in the hose.
