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.

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.

Remove dispenser drawer from m/c, and thoroughly clean it and all accessories.Clean all residual build up of undesolved powder and conditioner in drawer compartment..
If it still leaks, then remove top cover, locate large black hose at bottom of dispenser, and give it a good squeeze to clear any possible blockage in the hose itself..
If still no better, could be due to exceptionally high water preesure forcing the water out of the drawer.

Turn cold water valve down a little to reduce pressure.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Water still leaking


If the water is running down the front from underneath the drawer, then I would say that the hose is blocked from the dispenser into the drum.
You need to remove top cover, locate large black hose from dispenser into drum, feel and manipulate it to free any blockage of soap powder..
If the water still does not go into the drum, then you are going to have to remove hose to clear blockage.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Leaking machine


Could be caused by several reasons.
1- Overfilling, check water level .
2-Blockage in dispenser, or dispenser inlet hose to drum
3-Drawer not in properly.
4-M/c not draining properly, thus when it goes into spin, water could be thrown up by centrifugal force, and come out of the front of the drawer.Check filter.
5-Water pressure very high, forcing water out of drawer, adjust pressure.
Plz rate my soution.
Thanks.

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.
