Tools you will need:
2 Adjustable wrench's which opens up to 1"
Flat head screw driver
Philip screwdriver

I need clarrification on which connection is leaking after the plumber replaced the new taps, but for now I will presume he replaced the isolator valves on the water lines to you washing machine.

To fix the leaky pipe open one wrench so that it fits snugly around the valve body (you may want to remove the little plastic handle of the valve) set teh other spanner on the nut which holds the pipe into the valve and rotate it in a clockwise direction to tighten, if the leak persists tunr of the water and check:
1. that there is an olive (little brass ring under the nut that the nut can tighten down onto.
2. PTFE tape or putty on the threads of the valve

As for the leak on your machine this leak could be coming from anywere, the usual suspects are:
Door seal
Drum outlet
Pump assembly
Detergent Drawer
Dissconnet the power and have a look for were you see the leak, look out for limescale, rust and other water/detergent marks to help you identify were the leak is comming from. Usually you can access the back of the machine and with a torch should see the pump assembly, you can remove the top of the machine usually 3 philips screws anlong the back side of top cover then it just lifts off.
Aternativly with some help you can lean the machine backwards so that you can look under it. ONLY attempt that if you have help and you can securely hold the machine in place. Lying it down flat might damage the machine if you dont do it slowly and very carfully, if you have the original shipping bolts that came with the machine I would advise installing them to help hold the drum in place.

Hope this helps.

My hotpoint lumina super silent is starting a cycle but only loads the water and then doesn't spin it just stays still and counts down the time until theoad finishes and then empties the water. What's...

it's not named after that other car, is it? It's a hotpoint ultima super silent. Most likely suspect is the drive belt for the tub. Remove back cover and find the tech sheet stuffed in the unit for lots of secrets, shortcuts, and commonly replaced parts with the correct mfr part numbers. Check to see if the belt has come loose and why.

WD640 Aquarious supersilent washer/dryer leaking from powder draw

during the rinse the machine uses a higher level of water, therefore check the door seal for holes,if the water is leaking from the soap drawer in the spin then this suggests that you may have a blockage in the outlet hose or in the sump filter, to check the filter remove the sump hose, the filter is hidden in the hose.

I read that someone has a problem with F-03 on the display. I have seen this for the first time on my hotpoint wf860 1600 spin. I read the manual the only thing I can think of maybe an unbalanced load in the machine. Albeit the manual is not clear about this. P21 automatic features unbalanced load warning.
