The problem is not a leaking soap container. The problem is that it is overflowing because the line from it to the washer tub is clogged. This happens mostly when using powdered detergents. Check you operating instructions for soap dispenser cleaning procedures.

SOURCE: Hotpoint WD64, leaking water from soap drawer

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

SOURCE: Water Leak

If possible pull out your drawer and clean it up. Reason due to clogging with detergent, etc. Refer to your manual. If you can't get the drawer out, use a tooth brush to scrub; see that brush does not fall in. The dirt can fall in. To test if clear, pour water into drawer by opening it just so the water will fall in. Try all the drawers.

And rate me pl......

you have a blocked filter, unplug from mains, take off back panel you will see a black sump hose coming from the tub to the pump, tilt the machine forward and put a dish or bowl under sump unscrew clamp and pull off slowly to release any water in the drum. You will find a blockage, also what appears to be a ping pong ball dont throw away it is meant to be there.

SOURCE: Soap powder remains in the soap compartment

Depending on which compartment the powder is remaining in, it could be low water pressure causing the problem.
If it is taking some down, but not all the powder, then try putting the powder towards the front of the compartment.
If all else fails then I suggest you get one of these dispenser balls that you put straight in the drum with the washing.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Lots of water pouring out on to the floor from the laundry soap dispenser in my front loader and doesn't say any error and when i start it pours out


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.If helped, click.

Washer is leaking water out from underneath during cycle


Ours had a problem with water sloshing out of the soap cup during the cycle. The leak appeared under the left front. The fix was to remove the cup and just pour the soap into that section of the drawer. The only problem withthis is that you cannot add soap after you add the soap.

While washing water is leaking out of the soap drawer out of our 1st Addition Washer/Dryer Please help


Probably a soap blockage in dispenser, or washer is overfilling, or the drum is turning too fast on wash.
Check the dispenser to make sure it is clear of powder.
The drum should turn fairly slowly, or other wise it will throw water up to the diepemser if it is turning too fast.

Hotpoint WD72 - Plug Fuse Blows on Final Spin/Rinse


Hello thesquiffys
Welcome,


You said,
During final spin/rinse a vibrating/buzzing noise begins behind the from panel and which appears to be coming from just to the right of the soap drawer. After a few seconds, either the trip throws on the household consumer unit, or on one occasion, the fuse in the mains plug blew as well. Have noticed (don't know if connected) that soap drawer is often found containing water after machine is finished.

1.The soap dish needs to be cleaned out, holes clogged. The instructions for this
process is in the user guide and I'll paste the site below for you in case you do not have it available to you.
2.The noise sounds like a short or electrical problem starting.
For this you will need a hands on diagnoses.
TRY doing the soap drawer first to be sure that it is not the culprit!

The book can be found here and the drawer info on page 12:
