Hotpoint wd420 problems

Hi, our Hotpoint WD420 Washer Drier has developed several faults.Firstly, Water leakes from the powder drawer, secondly, the machine stops before the rinse/spin cycle and this then has to be done manually, and finally sometimes the Power LED blinks rapidly and the 'Time Saver' LED blinks slowly (I guess this could be some kind of error message)
Any help would be much appreciated :)

    Same again here, when the sump is full and the drum spins clockwise, it seems to be forcing water up the intake pipe for detergent and out through the facia. I've had the top of the unit off, but it is almost impossible to get at the hose connecting the detergent drawer to the main tank.

    Running program E, at the beginning of spin cycle water overflows out of the conditioner drawer. The drain hose is within specifications (less than 1200 mm from the floor). Program K has less water so it doesnt overflow

    To help solve this problem I lowered the drain hose so that the highest point is lower than the sill at teh bottom of the conditioner drawer.

    The problem persists - the pipe into the conditrioner drawer is of larger diameter than the drain hose and is nearer the drum.

    This problem did not oiccur when new - IS THERE a Non Return Valve under between conditioner drawer pipe which is stuck open (by build up of undissolved conditioer or dirt)?

1) Take the top off and thoroughly clean the dispenser and pipes.
2) Check and clean the filter basket at drum outlet to drain pump (in the big black pipe).
3) Timer Saver flashing on its own (but with flashing on/off) points to Triac fault Code F01. Could be intermittent connection too.

Hope that helps but disconnect from mains supply by pulling plug before checking anything.

You have a fault on the machine which is a dead short or an earth leakage.

Neither can be sorted out without a set of testers and some knowledge

Unless you can get hold of a resistance checker and know how to use it call a in a repair person
