Question about Hotpoint WD62 Front Load Washer / Dryer

WD62 drawer leak

My Hotpoint W62 has an initial fill up problem where when it fills up with water on the first wash cycle the water comes back out the soap drawer. To overcome this I have to stand by the machine and keep pressing the on/off button so that the water can drain down into the drum in smaller batches. Once the initial fill is over I can leave it to finish the cycle on it's own as there is no drawer spill further into the cycle.

I've had a poke around inside and cant see an obvious problem as the hose appears to be unblocked and I cant understand why it would only happen at the beggining of the cycle and not during the rinse.

Any ideas?

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.
