Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA42 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Continuously fills with water

When not in use the drum fills with a little water. I have turned off the supply of water to see if this cured the problem and it did. So the water is obviously coming from the fill supply. But how do I get at the inlet valves to clean or replace.

You have dirt in your inlet valve (could be hot or cold) you will have to determine which valve is faulty and replace the valve, there will be dirt on a sealing face which is not worthwhile fixing the chances are you will make it worse. plus these are sometimes sealed units. turn off the power before removing any valves these could have a pernament neutral supply to them. one bolt and two pipes and it can be removed with the top off.

My Samsung 13Kg Top Loader WA13G7Q1 continuously drains out the water when the drum is being filled , what could be the problem


Either your in house drain pipe is too low or your drain pipe is down into the drain too far and this causes a siphon effect. Pull drain line up out a little at a time until it stops draining while filling. Good Luck!

The American Standard toilet in my apartment recently started making a muzzled sound coming from the tank. Upon further inspection I found that the water was spraying from the top of the weight system and...


When you turn on the supply the tank fills ok. I don't know the mechanism in your tank but fixed a similar problem. Check the flap that releases water to flush, if it CLOSES properly after flush otherwise it lets the water into the toilet continuously making the sound. IF closed properly, the tank fills.

After flushing....water just dribbles back into the top tank...what needs to be done...can anyone help ????


Most likely the problem is with the fill valve or ballcock. Will need to turn the water off to the toilet and remove the supply line that connects the water to the fill valve. then there is a nut that holds the fill valve to the bottom of the toilet tank. remove that nut and the fill valve will lift out of the tank. replace the fill valve with a reverse process and that should cure the problem.

Drum filling with water when machine switched off


what you refer to as the overflow cap is the cover to the filter which you should remove regularly and check. however nothing to do with your problem. the water could be coming from two sources: first, if the drain is plumbed in under the sink, water can flow into the machine every time you empty the sink. the cure is to put the drain hose up as far as possible in a swan neck. secondly, the intake water valves could be leaking and the only cure then is to replace them

Drum filling up with water


There are 2 possible problems here. 1. If your waste pipe is connect under the sink and uses the sinks waste as a drain it could be that water from the sink (or dishwasher if also fitted) is entering the machine via the waste. This can be cured by ensuring that the washing machine waste hose is hooked up higher than the connection under the sink. 2. It could be that the washing machine inlet valve need replacing. After time, or if bits of dirt enter them they can let water seep through. This is easily identified by turning off the water supply where the hoses are connected to. If the machine fills up then you know it is entering via the waste hose - if it doesn't then you know its one of the valves. If it is a valve they are available from us at www.ransomspares.co.uk
