Question about Hoover Washing Machines

1 Answer

Our washer dryer is leaking water after the drying cycle. Everything seems to be fine just after the cycle has finished but in the morning the floor is covered in water. It seems to be coming from the bottom of the machine and when I remove the filter water gushes out. Can you help please?

Hi. I take it that the machine is of the condenser - dryer type?

In these machines, during the drying cycle, warm air is circulated inside the drum and a cold plate is either splashed with cold water or has cold water running through it, causing moisture from the clothes to condense on the cold plate - just like moisture in a room condenses on a cold window pane on cold days.

If your machine is continuing to fill up slowly with water after it has been switched off, then I would suspect the cold water inlet valve isn't closing properly. This is likely due to a build up of grit inside the valve.

If you turn off the cold water supply you will be able to remove the cold supply pipe from the machine and - hopefully - see some of the grit on the filter gauze. The grit possibly causing your problem is already inside the elcetically controlled inlet valve, so it may need to be removed and cleaned or replaced.

You should be able to check if this is the problem by just turning off the cold water supply to the machine. No supply means no water can get into the machine, so it shouldn't fill up overnight.

Before removing the filter down at the bottom of the machine you could turn the machine on to a spin or pump out cycle - that way you shouldn't need wellington boots when you removed the filter :-)
Hope this helps a bit. If not, add a comment and I will try to help you further. D.

I have GE GLDT696TSS. The dishes are not clean and one time noticed water leak from the back of the washer.


You should check the water outlet - probably discharges into your sink through a garbage disposal - the water outlet is likely plugged and water can not discharge down the sink. You can remove the hose and clean it out.

My dryer is Tcm570 it started leaking water on the floor while clothes are drying, then not drying after circulation. But if I try to put it on now it turns all the power in the house off. What's


There are a lot of parts to this problem: First don't plug it in again or try to restart it...yet, Make sure before you reset the circuit breaker that you unplug the dryer. So now your home should be fine! The dryer is another story... I have answered this problem for others and with other dryers... Please focus on your washer, there should be very little water that remains in your clothes after the wash cycle and the clothes should Definitely not be dripping. Check to see that your spin cycle is working and if necessary run it through the spin cycle again. You may be overloading the washer. Back to the dryer...NO water should EVER drip from a dryer! If you do not wish to call a service person I would wait about 1 1/2 weeks for the dryer to dry itself and give the dryer another try after that and set it for Air dry only (no heat) if you don't have a problem at that point then stop the dryer and set it for a low heat cycle and try again. I think at that point you should be OK? If you do have problems.. you will have to call in a service person. But please remember clothes should be quite dry coming from the washer before going into the dryer.

LG WM3988HWA water filling drum and overflowing during dry cycle


Solution for finding the right part, the (5 way) Valve assembly:Part Number: AP4998623 made by LG

I got the company link from LG. If the link does not work, go the the main website and enter in the model number. appliancepartspro(.)com
p.s. I found a service manual for my unit when I removed (by unscrewing) the inside plastic piece of the pump filter. It was located to the right, in a plastic bag.
p.s.s. I checked my water pressure, it was 90psi. I think this is why my flow limiter 'shot out' the valve and into the tubing.
p.s.s.s. The dryer heater assembly, the duct out, fan, and tubing was filled with so much lint, I was surprised anything could get through.

I recently found that my washer is causing a leak, only on the first drain cycle. The second drain cycle is fine. I thought I had a plumbing problem with the drain, however after snaking it and using ...


The most common leak point for this machine is at the center tub seal. Remove the front panel by removing the screws from the bottom of the front panel. Look at the bottom of the tub, directly in the center. See if there are any water marks around this seal or around the inside of the cabinet. If there is, this is a pretty intense repair requiring specialty tools, so you will likely need to call in a servicer. This typically runs about $300 or more to repair.

AEG Washer dryer will not complete cycle


I ended up trying the machine on a few different cycles all of which failed to complete. Finally tried a 'Drying' only cycle and it emptied out quite alot of water which was odd. It now seems fine. guessing it was a blockage and a certain amount of water was backed up in the machine??? any clarity welcome.
