Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
2 problems!
1) Sorry you do not say the make and model of your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

2) I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener tray which is causing water to overflow from the dispenser drawer so it needs a thorough clean, paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD ;-0)
-------------------------------------
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-

  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of these should enable you remove it
(I am having to guess some of the following!)
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.

Good luck with both!

My hotpoint wmud843p washing machine is leaking from the detergent draw at the start of the rinse cycle?


Open the draw. Grip it tightly and pull it out. clean the draw and clean the dispenser housing. Usually leaks due to powder etc getting stuck under dispenser draw causing water to bridge across and leak under draw. Also use a pipe cleaner or cable tie to clear any blocked holes in the dispenser.

Leak from refrigerator bottom when dispensing water


Good day,
The water supply starts at the dispenser, runs thru the door to the door's bottom where it connects to a swivel connector.
From there it travels under the machine and back into the fresh food compartment to a reservoir located behind the crispers where it is chilled.
It comes back out and travels to the filter system if you have one, and from there to the water valve located on the back rear of the machine.

One of the plastic lines or a fittings is leaking.
It's a look-see repair. Should be one person drawing water, while a second should be looking with a flashlight.

Dear expert, there is soapy water leaking out of the dispenser draw of my Bosch washing machine (while the machine is running). How can I fix the problem? Thanks, Miriam


Hi Miriam,


This is caused when the thread of the supply hose is not tight or there is a leak in the drain hose. To resolve this issue you need to tighten the thread and replace the drain hose. Before replacing the drain hose you can try to mix 1 table spoon of fabric softener with 1 pt (half litre) of water and pour into detergent dispenser.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Water leaking out slightly from detergent dispenser draw and is starting to rust down left hand front side of machine,checked all water supply and drain hoses but leak appears to be coming from high up...


Your water pressure may be a liitle too high for the machine to handle. Try turning the water valves for the hot and cold water down a bit to reduce the pressure and try it again.

Leaking from the dispenser


Try to pull out your dispenser drawer gently to clean out thoroughy. If you cant succeed, use a tooth brush, see that the brush does not fall in. Probably you have dried powder blocking the passage, nothing else.

Rate me pl.
