I haver a Hoover VTS 715D21X/1-80 washing machine. Wife rang me yesterday in work to tell me the washing machine has gone and there were soapy suds everywhere. I come home drained and took the top and back off. Put the machine back on and sure enough after 5 min soapy suds coming from under the machine to the back (I suspect this is more to do with the angle of the floor). I then switched it off, drained again and put it on its side and looked under neath. where you ahve a concreate weight at the top there is also one at the front just under the door. This was soaked and had water running down it. Am I correct in assuming this is most likely a door seal gone? My reasoning is that it is soapy water and the only thing above this (other than the door) is pipes for fresh water. Secondly occasionally we get a leak from the drain on the front and when I open it there is something in there, I remove and all is OK again. But it is getting worse, it takes less and less for it to act blocked and then leak, if I am taking the front off anyway to replace a door seal is there anything I can do to help the front drain? Thanks, Nathan
Hi,[/size] I have just replaced the drain pump on my washing machine and I'm suddenly unsure if what I've done is completely safe. I have a Samsung washing machine, model WF7602NAW/XEE, ser no.: X8985ARQ500554D. I've used a new pump - model M224 XP, it's 40 watts and the old pump, model M-47 is 30 watts. Have I used the wrong part? Does the difference in wattage cause a problem? The website I bought the part on said it fit for model WF7602, and I have a WF7602NAW/XEE what do the letters at the end of the model number mean in this case? The old cover for the original pump also doesn't fit the new one, so I put in the new pump without anything covering it. Does this create a fire risk in the event any dust settles on top of it? I've already done one wash cycle without any problems, but I wanted to be sure that this was safe. I really appreciate any advice I can get! Thanks, Alice
