I am not sure what a triger is, but if you are getting splashing water from underneath it can be coming from your pump, or you could have a tub seal leaking into the bearing.
A couple of other things that can cause this are when you wash on a small load the water can splash on the fins in the bottom of the wash tube and drip off the lid down the sides and onto the floor, and some models have an overflow tube that drains down to a metal pan underneath. I hope this helped you. have a nice day. Mike

Oil spitting out from bottom of cabrio washer

You can call Sear Part or Google the bearing kit W10435302 and the tool W10447783. For me the easiest way is to buy a new outer tub with the price far less cheap than the tool and bearing add together. Here the link

I keep getting an error code F 50 and all the green is lit around the dial. Water is spitting out but it does not seem to be rotating at all.

F then 50 flashes when the motor rotor position sensor (RPS) senses no rotation.
Does basket turn freely? If not, make sure bottom shipping pack has been removed. Determine cause of friction.

Washing machine water comming out from bottom

Check the hose that connects from the tub to the water pump. Next time you do a load remove the front panel and set the machine for a "small load" so there won't be alot of water. When the machine begins to agitate shut off the timer and move it to the final spin mode and turn it on. Here is where you want to watch that hose (maybe with a flashlight) as the tub begins to spin and the water is being pumped out, focus on where the hose connects to the drum. Usually as the spin increases the vibration will cause the hose connection to become loose and water will start spitting out. If you don't see any leaks in the hose, check the water pump itself. NOTE: DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE MACHINE WHILE IT IS IN OPERATION! JUST LOOK IN AT THE HOSE, DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING AND KEEP YOUR HAND BEHIND YOUR BACK! THE OTHER HAND ON A FLASHLIGHT FROM OUTSIDE THE MACHINE.

WD860 Spitting out water & noisy

The spitting water problem is often caused by the filter assembly in the sump pipe just before the pump getting blocked. This easlily clogs up but is not easy to clean out. Hotpoint do not fit an easy access pump filter to this model but they place the filter into the black rubber pipe that runs from the drum to the pump. When this clogged up the machine empties too slowly and starts to spin when too much water is left in the drum, this forces water up and out of the soap tray. There is a minor design fault as the pressure sensor is attached to the same sump pipe and even when the filter is blocked the suction from pump still drops the pressure on the sensor. So you end up with a drum that has not emptied out enough water but still goes on to spin . The result is niagra falls from the soap tray.

To rectify this you will need to pull the machine out, unplug it, remove the rear lower back panel and dismatle the black sump to pump pipe. Once this is clear you will find the machine runs fine again. Its not an easy jobs and water spills everywear but if you are a keen DIY'r you should be OK. I just cleared mine out and found coins, shirt collar inserts and a large washing instruction label in the sump pipe. Now its clear and the machine has stopped spilling water from the soap dispenser.

As for the noise on spin, check all concrete is firmly fixed to the drum as they work loose

Washing Tabs

Hi Zanussi do not recommend tablets for this machine as it is a jet system and uses far less water than conventional machines. it recommends liquids or loose powder to be used in the tray I know as I sold these for 10 years.

Steam iron just spits water

Hiya .. your problem is more than likely to be one of two things
1. The element is overheating, which means the thermostat is not functioning as it should.. can you hear the thermostat Clicking? if so
2. No matter how soft your water area is.. there is always scale build up around and within the jets, try a good propietary descaler..... White vinegar is a good alternative.
Fill the iron with equal parts vinegar to water, and letting it steam until dry, rinse the tank with clean water, refill it and shake the water through the steam holes over a piece of newspaper/material... Test an old cloth before ironing on anything expensive. It should sort your prob ..... never advisable do this on a new iron as the acidity may damage the iron!

Water spitting out the top of the Siphon tube when filling...

Suggestion: Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit.This tube controls the water level. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. Another thing that could be the problem: Try to take the top of the machine off; there are three tubes coming into the dispenser box, these may hv come loose or something. Connect well.
