Wma20: water gushes out of dispenser drawer instead of going into drum

WMA20 has worked perfectly for 20 years then suddenly (after a stay by a very stupid house guest) water gushes out of the dispenser drawer instead of going into the drum. My laundry room is flooded and the washing does not get clean. Is there a blockage caused by non-emptied pockets? If so, where should I look as the most likely place to be blocked. Thanks!

Stinky grey goo in my Hotpoint WMA20 washing machine

you can only change the seal as this is a common fault with low tep washing Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

Fabric compartment is always full of water

you have to remove the soap drawer complete and view above where it slides in. you will see several holes where the water sprays out these holes get blocked, you will need to get a washing up brush invert it and scrub these holes as clear as possible (pay particular attention to the ones above the fab cond slot). this may need to be done at least once a month, also the soap tray will need to be stripped and cleaned also.
