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
Have searched FAQs and topics, but found no reference to this problem. Old seal distinctly worn. Slight grey rubber deposits on drum rim If seal removed, drum rotates smoothly. No bearing noise. No distortion of drum opening. Drum lies centrally in tank opening. New seal fitted, then drum dificult to rotate because of friction with seal. Drum seems to be forward of the correct position. Drum edge aligns precisely with edge of tank opening. Any guidance welcome.
