Hotpoint WMA76 Leaking door and soap tray

Hi,
Just put a load into the washing machine tonight and with only 4 minutes to go it started leaking water from the door and the soap tray. After the cycle had finished, there was still water inside and the door look light came on and won't go off. I have managed to lower the water level in the machine by gently lifting the door and seal. After turning the machine off for a few minutes the lock light has gone out and I can get the washing out...but what happened and why did it leak from both the door and the tray???

Any ideas what could be the matter and how I go about fixing it would be great as I can't afford to buy a new one just yet.
Regards
Lee

    Hi,

    Fixed the problem.

    I figured out that the water wasn't draining away, so I thought the filter/strainer might be blocked up. Had to take a small plastic pannel off the back of the washing machine and unscrewed the black plastic gator. Inside there's a plastic cup with a ball and a pair of the wife's pants!!!!

    Cleaned everything down, fitted everything back together and had a test run. No Problems.

    Hope this helps someone else.

You may be using too much detergent, or you have a blockage in the outlet.try putting it on to spin to drain out the water, if it does not drain then check the filter or sump hose for a blockage

Water leaking through detergent tray of my Hotpoint WF860


It sounds like the washer is not draining properly.

Remove lower rear cover of washer, locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of tub.
remove plastic filter inside hose, and clean same.
Refit filter and hose, making sure it is on properly.
Be careful when you remove the hose, as there will be water in there.
As an extra precaution, remove soap draw,and thoroughly clean all parts, particularly,the conditioner parts
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
