Question about Hotpoint Ultima WF860 Front Load Washer
About two thirds of the way through the cycle, water starts coming out from underneath the powder drawer, and through the bottom of the door. There are no splits in any seals, and i am baffled. Can someone help.
Had exactly the same problem and it did indeed turn out to be a blocked filter - mainly with "Colour Catcher" sheets. Initially I thought the dispenser drawer was faulty so spent twently-six quid on one before that failed to fix it and then I discovered this site!
To get to the filter, unplug the machine then remove the bottom plastic panel at the back of the machine (2 screws). Undo the jubilee clamp holding the black rubber flexible coupler that joins the drum, drain pump and pressure sensor to each other. Pull the black coupler downwards away from the drum. Inside is a plastic cup filter arrangement with a plastic ball. Clean this out of various debis - along with the sheets there was £ 2.26 (to put towards the cost of the drawer!) in mine.

at what point in the cycle does it do this i.e when filling, spinning etc?
if its filling, it might just need the soap dispenser cleaned as any build up of soap powder in here will force water out of the front.
if its at a rinse/spin, it could be something trapped in the pump filter, because if the water cant drain quickly enough when the machine starts to spin then the water gets forced back up through the soap dispenser as there is nowhere else for it to go.
hope this helps

Thanks that really helped. I have a hotpoint dw129 and the sump was at the front of the wm which was great for access.However,I undid the clamp and a funnel emerged which had 35 pence in there. It hasn't leaked again but I am wondering if i need to remove the coupler too ...it was a bit tough and I was content for the moment in finding the loose change. Hmmm should I have taken the coupler out too ??
