Hi

.

If its leaking on the final rinse then its usually down to a clogged water softner section.

.

You need to remove the soap drawer and take the softner cover off and give this a good clean out. Make sure the drawer is all clear in there.

.

Then refit it and retry the washer again and fingers crossed this should cure the fault.

.

Let me know how it goes.

.

I've already cleaned out the softer insert and run washer again, but it still leaked. Incidentally I have found a small (around 7cm long) 'J' shaped plastic piece, shaped as a small trough, in the Drawer area, it was right at the back of the opening when I removed the dispenser. Has this become detached from somewhere?

I cannot picture what they are off?

.

Have you tryed the washer since?

If so is it still leaking?

Does it take the softner?
