Hotpoint Wf560 Flooding Kitchen


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hi all,

Our WF560 is flooding the kitchen, it just keeps filling up its drum when running a wash cycle until water backs up to the detergent draw and starts leaking out on to the floor.

We have been able to empty the machine by switching to the pump out cycle.

Is this possibly something I could have a go at fixing myself? Any ideas on which components I should check?

Any help would be really appreciated.

It's possible the pressure chamber is blocked or there's an air leak in the pressure tubing hose. Try these articles -
