Question about Candy Washing Machines
My Hoover OPH716DF washing machine is leaking water from the front filter plug. I have unscrewed it, cleaned it and put it back but it still leaks. It leaks mostly when the washer is emptying. There doesn't seem to be anything else I can remove and clean. Please help!
The seal round the cap on the filter is possibly damaged solution is new filter housing or complete pump assydo not overtighten they are fairly straight forward to fit hope this helps

The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.
You have now replaced the washer pump.
If you have any questions, let me know

Might be a cracked water valve or dispenser. To get to it you must remove the skin. Click HERE for info on accessing these fine machines.

I had this same problem and it was not the supply connections or filters! Under the machine is a rubber bellows. The bellows had sprung a leak. The part was about $10 from Sears and I repaired it in about 30 minutes. The machine is heavy so be careful. Get a friend to make sure the machine won't rock or tip when you're making the repair.
