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!

Washing machine filling with water on its own!!


From time to time washing machines fill with water on its own.... one of the things that can cause this problem is the drain hose being too low,this allows water to run from the sink back into he drum filling up the machine.To cure simply.. raise the height of the drain hose........

Retains water (after a delay) in the drum after a wash cycle. Immediately after the wash cycle there is no water in the drum, however after several hours the drum has water in it?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill! To find out which it is in the case of hot and cold fill turn the cold tap/faucet off overnight and see if water has come in or not. that will tell you. Also to check that it is just a physical problem and not a control board problem switch the machine off at the supply. If it still does it (from whichever supply) it is that valve which is not closing correctly ;-0
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

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
