Question about Hotpoint Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Although you do not say which model it is, this is a common problem with many machines.
I suspect that the conditioner/softener tray 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-
(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.
If this does not work, pull out the dispenser drawer far enough to be able to just see the softener tray, select the (final?) rinse and check that water is entering the tray. If it isn't there is a fault with the water distribution and an engineer call is required ;-0(
