Water pumping out of draw and trickiling out of door

Every time we do any cycle from 40c to 60c water squirts out of the conditioner draw. And a little from the loading door itself. Had this happen before and i cured it by taking off the waste pipe and cleaning out all the lime scale and gunk but this time it didn't work. Any ideas?

If it does it when it fulls. You may have something stuck in the fill hose blocking the water sure to unplug the washer then Remove the top.. Then pull out the hose that goes to the tub. I bet you will have something in there.. most common is the inside liner to a bleach cap..let me know if this is it... krazytech

Loud humming/buzzing sound when the washing cycle starts. It does it only with cycles with hot water from above 60C and above.

I suggest that if the machine does have a hot fill intake that you connect this because this will insure long life to the electric element you will be saving money as you already have hot water and this might rectify the problem

I can not get the water temp to above 180F and the local health inspector realy want it to have the minimum of 71 degree celcius or 180F.If I leave the machine idle the temperature gauge show 72C but as...

Hello Huekycanada

You have to check the booster element what amp they are drawing there are three elements if only two are working it will still goes up to 72C may be it need longer time to get there. Secondly I would check the in coming water from your hot water tank it should be 60C at the machine , To check this incoming water temperature the best way is checking the temp. at the sink nearest to the dishwasher. 9 out of 10 I do find this is the main cause of the problem ( the in coming water temp is too low)

All the best, Dickson

My B70 just starts running water through and doesn't stop till it's drained the reservoir...Any clues?

I have taken the beast apart and watched it successfully cycle and fail to cycle.

Warning!!! (DO NOT TRY DIS-ASSEMBLY IT UNLESS YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND RECOGNIZE THE COMPONENTS, You could electrocute yourself and suffer nasty permanent scaring... ouchie!)

I discovered the same as another person claimed a "check value" and/or air leak/lockup. The pump cycles, but can't get water so the machine shuts down to prevent over-heating. (The dreaded "Not Ready").


1. Turn off the machine and unplug until it is completely cooled, say 4 hours. (Allows for temperature equalization of the water chamber and the water supply)

2. Completely fill the water reservoir. (The extra water just helps the pump break the air lock).

3. Turn the machine on and wait for the pump to start drawing water.

4. Immediately knock 1-3 times on top of the water reservoir/machine (at the very top of the machine) about as hard as would knocking on a door. (Watch the water level, it should immediately start to drop)

The pitch of the pump should change when the water begins to be drawn into the heating chamber. (you can also hear the water flowing)

The problem is caused by air entering the water supply system. This air provides a "lock" on the system that the pump can't overcome. This can happen due to a number of issues but most issues should be this easy fix.

The machine refills itself 3 times. At Power-on, at beginning of the brew cycle and after the brew cycle.

Watch the machine and any time the pump cycles make sure it draws in water until it shuts down, if it doesn


My WP EA6800XTW0 is leaking onto the floor. Why?

You are the best judge to see the exact spot of the leak.
So use your palm to moe over to find the water trickiling.
Look around the door gaskets , the drain hose, the drain pump or a spillover from the inlet hose/inlet valve.
In all these cases a good plumbing job can help to plug the leak. If however within the valve or pump , remove and try repairing with resetting or replace.

I am trying to get my Faema Contessa espresso machine to draw up the water from its holding container, any ideas on how to prime its pump?

Vibration pumps usually make this when they stay long without work, sometimes they are remaining useless after this, you can try to open steam valve and to try pumping inn the water, if it does not helps, YOU MUST open the device, remove pump and blow her with compressed air few times, (they have two sensitive non return valves on the outlet). After blowing try it with water outside the device and see if she draws. If you recover the old one just put it in place and continues to work. If not than you must buy new pump

Leak from lower door section and from powder door thing.

This could be a partially or completely seized/failed pump.
Before a machine goes in to a spin cycle, it runs the pump to empty all the water out. It used to be quite common that the machine does not check all the water has gone before spinning, it just runs the pump for a set time which if the pump is okay, is long enough to empty it.
If a spin is then started with quite a lot of water left in the drum, it gets thrown everywhere including back out of the powder/conditioner draw. Also the sheer strain of spinning a large amount of water can force water through an otherwise okay door seal.
Unless you are comfortable working on the machine yourself, call an engineer.

Washing Machine starts, squirts water, then stops.
