You have a blocked filter, unplug from mains, take off back panel you will see a black sump hose coming from the tub to the pump, tilt the machine forward and put a dish or bowl under sump unscrew clamp and pull off slowly to release any water in the drum. You will find a blockage, also what appears to be a ping pong ball dont throw away it is meant to be there.

The problem can be a defective pressure switch. The pressure switch detects water level. Pressure switch not working correctly may result in overfill. Try cleaning the rubber hose connected to the pressure switch. Check also pressure from inlet hose and look for blockage in detergent drawer.
You said, Water gushing from powder dispenser drawer. I have been told to take
out drawer and put to one side. Looking into drawer space at back on
right hand side there is a hole to be unlocked. It is so scaled up I
cannot see hole. Can you help me or do you have an illustration fo what
I am supposed to be looking at and unblocking ? Hope you can help soon.
Floor is flooding every wash and cannot afford to get man out.
I found what you are looking for! Below I will post the site for your WD71 User guide.
If you scroll down to page 5 it will show you what and how to remove the transit brackets. the dispenser drawer info is on pages 19 and 20. My first post was incorrect about the bolt. The American washers us a bolt! Sorry.
You should be fine now and able to remedy this by your self Let me know if you have any other questions. Huuum Please remember to leave a rating Thank You
The detergent dispenser will not close properly or is collecting water?
1. Check the drawer is properly aligned. 2. Clean the dispenser drawer (see Care and Maintenance).
