Hi - I have a Hotpoint WMA52 and it's just flooded the cellar. The
water it's filling with is backing up into the soap drawer and
spilling out. I had the top off and squeezed the hose between the
soap drawer and the drum, this seems to have made some difference but
when I turn the pressure up it still overflows. It drains the water
quite happily (pump OK). The prewash light is flashing when it has
filled up anyway.
Should there be a float switch and is that knackered?
Should I be able to see water in the drum to a depth of up to the door
bottom when it's filled - cos I can.
What next, I usually fix stuff myself but know little of washing
