Hotpoint W/D valve problem

I have had a water problem on mt washer dryer WD62.

Water was coming in during a dryer cycle, even with the machine turned off
Lucky me too.....the door seal was damaged from a caught tea towel, soi had a lovely flood to contend with. So turned off the machine, moppedup, went to bed. Next morning.....flooded again.

Anyway, I have changed the seal and got a replacement valve (3 way cold inlet). VAL20 from a fleabay seller.

The valve looks very slightly different with one pair of the spadeconnectors turned round 90 degrees......AND my old valve has a red anda black insert in the edge of the outlet pipes on outlet 2 & 3(counting downwards). The new valve has them on different outlets (red& yellow).

Now, the machine seems to be okay on wash.....but when I start adrying cycle, water spurts out of the top of black plastic vent on thetop rear of the machine.

Do I need to change these inserts around ? Should the wiring be the same on the new part ?

Any pointers appreciated. Thanks.

I had the problem. I replaced the water inlet valve, and that fixed it. It seems no cold water was coming in on the drying cycle to condense the steam.

Where do I drain the tumble dry water on a hotpoint wd62 wash/dry

remove the top panel by unscrewing the 3 screws at the back of the washer dryer . remove the top and then remove the back metal panel. the screws are down the side and all around the back of the panel. once you have removed the panel check for the black rubber hose that connects to the drum. remove the clip holding the rubber hose by prising it with a small screwdriver. be careful as the water will flow out quite quickly. Check the hose pipe for any blockages and clear as required.

All washing machines have a solenoid valve for turning on and shutting off the water coming in, one for the hot water and one for cold. It sounds like one of them has a slow leak.

Try shutting off the cold water supply to the machine for a day and see if the tub fills with water. Next try shutting off the hot water supply and leaving the cold supply on. This will tell you which valve is leaking.

This solenoid valve is something you can buy from an appliance parts company. In some cases, someone handy may even be able to disassemble it and replace a washer that is leaking.

Until it is repaired, you can get by with shutting off the water supply when you are not using the machine or shutting off the supply that is leaking. For example, if it's the hot water supply valve that is leaking, just shut off the hot and do only cold water washing.
