Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 Front Load Washer
My machine has a leak internally that then emits from the bottom left of the machine, it goes through a wash correctly, just left with a small puddle after it finishes. I wanted to take the lid off so I can get visibility of the parts and hopefully find the source of the leak and stop it but can't find any guides to instructing the dismantle process. I'm an engineer...just not in washing machines, so I'm more than happy to go in to find the problem, the machine is no longer under warrantly either. Can you point me in the direction to get into the machine?
Have you cleaned the soap dish by pulling it out

You take off the top to get into the machine, there are usually screws at rear top holding top panel on.
That said the most likely culprit is the pump which you get to from underneath, followed by the door seal, which you should inspect carefully for very small holes. My guess is the pump, have you checked the filter is clear?

Plug off the wall. Open the back of the machine to take a good look at the tube coming out from the bottom of the tub, open the front door to see if the door washer is loose somewhere. You could even try to reach out thru the back to locate any loose rubber gasket, the door gasket that is...... Possible you could take out the top of the machine to see if any of the normal 3 tubes entering your dispenser has come loose.....

water leaks are very hard to locate as the water always drips from the bottom, it is just a case of detailed looking, after a while there will be a dry white mark where the water has dried out, this will show where the leak originated from, there are a few things at the front of the machine that it could be, sorry can't help much more nearly all parts can be bought by the public and with common sense and taking very detailed notes where wires came from etc, most jobs can be done by a competent diy person with basic electrical knowledge remember water and electric do not mix always unplug from power supply where working on any appliance

SOURCE: slight leak
It dpends. see if you can see any staining on front of cabinet under the door , if you can then yes it will mean new seal.
Another source of water could be water from the dispenser trickling down the front of the m/c.
Another possibility is that you have a leak from under the front of the washer. Put a piece of newspaper under the front of the washer, this should enable you to pinpoint the source of the leak.
Hope this helps

Power off the mains. The
filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at
bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain
out all the water. The filter is inside
the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum.
the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip
holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big
which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To
put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball
into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir
Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic
clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.
And rate me nice pl for the free help!
