    I do not think you require to fit any new parts.

    It is probably caused by one of two things.

    1-- remove top cover, and check the soap dispenser hose is not blocked with undesolved powder, and in the dispenser itself.

    2-- remove rear lower panel undo large black hose onto bottom of drum, and check filter inside hose.

    Please rate my solution.

    Thanks.

Hotpoint soap drawer leaking, wfooo


The problem is not a leaking soap container. The problem is that it is overflowing because the line from it to the washer tub is clogged. This happens mostly when using powdered detergents. Check you operating instructions for soap dispenser cleaning procedures.

Hotpoint Aqualtis throws water out of soap draw during rinse. Have checked pressure switch & tubing. How do you get to the pressure chamber to check for blockage? Could it be anything else?


Hi,
I would remove the dispenser drawer by pressing on the release button, then clean out under the drawer. The reason I say this is I have had a few do this and I found a rinse agent clogging unit it cause the water during rinse to dispense forward and leak on the floor. It not difficult to clean out, this can take up to 10 minutes or so to fix with no parts needed.

Good Luck

Water coming out of soap drawer


Some washing machines, can flood water out of the soap dispenser when a hose gets blocked (usually with un dissolved soap powder) .Water flooding out of the front of a washing machine's soap dispenser can also be an indication of overfilling or a partial pump blockage if it does it when spinning.
Black gunge in the top of the soap dispenser can cause water to spray towards the front and leak. Take out the soap dispenser drawer and look at the roof of the soap dispenser. If it's covered in black gunge, blocking some of the water holes, it could be causing problems. In extreme cases you have to replace the dispenser.
