Check hoses probably a coin or something stuck in it blocking the pump, you have to remove the back of the washer and take the hoses off at the input and output off the pump motor clean them and put them back on, try that.

Leaking washing machine

Disconnect first the mains, power plug off the wall. You could have a clog in your soap drawer; pull the dispenser drawer completely out. There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer to remove. Clean the soap drawer with an old tooth brush. The usual block could be old soap, softener, etc. (you could also be using too much soap powder). I usually use just above 125ml (my measure cup says ml, I use front loader powder for the 5.5kg load) The wash is very gud. This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Next could be one of hoses has become loose, should be re-fixed. Examine by removing top of the front loader; this will give you a gud view of the pipes.

The fabric softener drawer on my hotpoint hd420 is not draining. At the end of a wash the fabric softener drawer remains for of water. Can you advise?


It is not that unusual to find some plain water remaining- has the softener gone OK?

If not here is just a quick POSSIBLE (1st) solution if you have not tried it already-

Completely slide out the drawer - normally made possible by pressing down the plastic flap at the backend of the softener part of the drawer - as it is normally in the middle.

You may find 'gunge' made up of washing powder (if you use powder of course!) and softener combined in the tube that the softener should syphon into. Wash out with plenty of water!
I do this to ours fairly frequently.

Hope this helps.

The washer is leaking water. It looks like it may be coming from the area where you put the dtergent into the detergent cup. I bought it at Bernie's and I think it has an exteneded warranty but I can't...

If you have water coming out of the detergent drawer, then i would suspect a clogged drain hose at the back of the drawer. If you take the lid off , (disconnect from mains ) at back of drawer small hoses take the soap powder to the drum. these can block with soap powder, ( gently push some wire or flex down pipe) dont pierce the pipe , be gentle. had this problem myself.

Washer doesn't dispense fabric softener

This can be either one of the solenoids in the dispenser has failed, the timer is not sending the signal to let the softener in, or the water is not circulating through the dispenser to flush it through. The water hose to the dispenser will occasionally plug up. Check the hose first, it's the cheapest to unplug it. ;-) Oh, I have seen the wires to the solenoids just simply come unplugged too.

It sounds as thiough the hose that lets the water into the drum from the dispenser is blocked with undesolved soap powder, you need to remove the top cover, and clear the blockage in the hose.

Soap powder remains in the soap compartment

Depending on which compartment the powder is remaining in, it could be low water pressure causing the problem.
If it is taking some down, but not all the powder, then try putting the powder towards the front of the compartment.
If all else fails then I suggest you get one of these dispenser balls that you put straight in the drum with the washing.
Plz rate this solution.
