Question about Washing Machines
Hi, our Hotpoint WD420 Washer Drier has developed several faults.Firstly, Water leakes from the powder drawer comes from the drum and up into the draw., secondly, the machine stops before the rinse/spin cycle and this then has to be done manually,
The most often found cause of water from the drawer is a build up of sludge and the best way to deal with it is to do a 95 degree wash with just calgon in the machine - it usually does the job of completely cleaning the dispenser and allied pipes (and freshens the machine up).
It is worthwhile checking the filter basket in the drain tube from drum to drain pump. If the water drain exceeds the time out period then it may not move forward the program (water may still be present). It never ceases to surprise me what I find in these filters. Baby socks, handkerchiefs, coins, pins etc and all will slow the water outlet at least and block it at worst.
Always disconnect from mains before doing any work on your machine.

Hi firstly turn down your cold water pressure as this somtimes gives the impression that the water is coming from the drum,then check that the rinse hold button is not activated if so press in the button then the timer should continue on its own,hope this helps if so please rate thank you.
