Hotpoint WD64, leaking water from soap drawer

The above problem has continued even after checking for blockages at the black rubber pipe that connects the soap drawer to the drum area. I have also checked the sump drain pipe??, black in colour below the drum, that holds the filter. Even after emtying the filter the machine still leaks a lot of water on initial fill. After that it seems to be ok. Soap drawer area is clean and soap free except for the stuff going into the machine. Anyone got any ideas. Thanks Alan

    Hotpoint WD64 washer dryer. On initial swithch on and fill, water sprays in to the soap tray but then slowly seeps down the front of the machine (at first glance I thought the door was leaking). There don't appear to be any blockages and I think our high water pressure may have something to do with it. The spray is maybe too powerful and simply sprays into the soap dish then out of the soap door?

    water leaking out of the soap drawer on initial fill up is hot

    I've the same problem as above, I've checked the obvious stuff, blockages, filters, pipework etc and everything is fine.
    It looks like too much pressure (cold fill?) but this problem has only recently occurred and used to be OK.
    The comments on the condenser are interesting but why would this cause this problem?
    Appreciate any feedback.
    Thanks

Your condenser is blocked,you might be lucky and get away with just cleaning it, but most of the time it is just best to change it. You will have to take the back off again it is the plastic component with the fan motor attached, disconnect the 2 black tubes to it [note where they come from] unscrew the 3 bolts at the bottom , disconnect the wires going to the fan motor. If you are going to change the condensor you will have to take the fan motor off aswell MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE MACHINE FROM THE MAINS. GOOD LUCK

Just gave the condenser a major overhaul, a bit tricky to remove but sorted. What is interesting is that the small 'vent' tube from the detergent box was blocked with fibres etc in the condenser housing, it is now clear and it seems to have resolved the problem.
I have the main water pressure back to 100% now, technically unsure whether this was causing a airlock causing the water level to rise in the tray etc, Ant thoughts?
Fingers crossed!

Try turning down your cold water pressure. some times the pressure it is so great that the water hits the soap dispense and spill over. this is a common problem with front loaders??

Tricity Bendix aw1200w washing machine does not always drain water ! What is wrong ? Thank you in anticipation .


i think something is floating around in the space between the inner and outer drums

like a sock or small plastic bag etc etc etc
so drain the machine
take the back panel off and remove the heating element and shine a torch inside
the blockage may have worked into the drain system pipes and traps
and you may need to totaly disconnect it and
lay it over on its right side {the side opposite the soap drawer}

then examine its outlet from the drum and pipes to the pump

the pump
and its housings and viens
for any wires and hair clips monopoly hotels and 2ds and 3ds platic pens
basically anything that fits into the soap drawer and fits down the intake pipes
that then lives inside the drums

so... taking the heating element out will expose the area you need to check with a torch
also if you shine a bright light thru the open lid of a washer
you can usualy see any implaled wires etc on the outer drum
most are transparrent or opaic

Water pouring out of the detergent drawer


Remove the dispenser draw and pour water down the soap chute as much as you can to soften any soap causing the blockage. When the water level drops, add more water. After a while use a soft flexible rubber hose and run it down the chute up and down to remove caked soap. Once this has been achieved, run the machine on "Rinse & Spin" to clean out the drum.

Water runs out of soap box during rinse cycle


Hi there, given this a lot of thought. I had same problem. Could be that you are in a hard water area. Soap is not dissolving properly and building up in the rubber tube between soap box and drum. How I resolved this. Turn off power remove top cover of washing machine and massage the rubber pipe between soap box and drum to soften and cause undissolved saoa to drop into drum. This should rectify problem. Also consider using every month some descaler powder called Descaler cheapest from Axxxxn best wishes.

Leaking washing machine


Disconnect first the mains, power plug off the wall. You could have a clog in your soap drawer; pull the dispenser drawer completely out. There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer to remove. Clean the soap drawer with an old tooth brush. The usual block could be old soap, softener, etc. (you could also be using too much soap powder). I usually use just above 125ml (my measure cup says ml, I use front loader powder for the 5.5kg load) The wash is very gud. This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.


Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Next could be one of hoses has become loose, should be re-fixed. Examine by removing top of the front loader; this will give you a gud view of the pipes.

Washer will not fill up with water


Is water switched on? Is water reaching soap drawer? If it is then there is a blockage in the soap drawer hose to the drum, if no water is getting here check the filters at the water intake valves are not blocked where the feed pipes fit. If these are clear try a cold wash setting to see if you get water filling, if you do then it may be a faulty hot water intake valve.

Hotpoint WD440 Drawer overflowing


Hi.
I would check the inlet hose from the bottom of the soap dispenser where it goes into the drum for a soap blockage.
undesolved powder can build up here and prevent the water entering the drum
You can access this hose by removing top cover.
the hose is on the left side front.
This should solve your problem.
Please leave feed back.
Thanks.

Hotpoint Aquarius WF 240 Front loader


first remove the soap drawer, this should expose locating holes for screws, remove these first, then remove the screws from on top of the plastic front panel and then the plastic front panel tilts forward to remove, taking extra care with wires etc the soap drawer is now loose still attached to the rubber pipe, which is now easy to get to for inspection, or removal to clear it out. first of all just check that the machine drum is not filling up totally so it is overflowing back out of the soap drawer, if so that is a different fault entirely and does not need taking to bits the same

Soap dispenser slow leak


Plug off the wall socket first. Remove screws to remove the top of your machine. Check to see if the rubber hoses are connected well to the dispenser chamber, if not connect them properly. Another thing could be your dispenser drawer; you could pull it out gently to clean it; or you could even use a tooth brush for access.
