Hotpoint Aquarius aqd1170d 697e keeps draining water when trying to fill but water pump isn't pumping out.

Recommended Posts

Hi Andy! I've contacted you twice previously about my machine that won't finish a wash cycle.

I've now noticed something else, when put on a wash cycle the water is draining out but the water pump isn't energised/pumping out. I know this as the water pump isn't making the usual noise.

Could this be a faulty solenoid valve at all?

I will leave you alone eventually
