Ref Hotpoint Aquarius WDLS 540 After the machine completes

Customer Question

Ref Hotpoint Aquarius WDLS 540
After the machine completes its cycle it drains but either not completely or water seeps back into the drum

Does it fill with clean or dirty water?
How is the drain hose connected to the house drains?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The machine in my ownership but used by a tenant.

I believe the water maybe clean; the drain hose is connected into a waste pipe under the sink which is draining normally


Expert:  Techdesk replied 4 years ago.
If it's clean water, you need new inlet valves on the machine.
If it's dirty water, simply lift the drain hose under the sink so it goes right up against the under side of the worktop. This prevents dirty drain water running back into the machine.
Check it out, see which it needs, both are easy enough jobs.
Hope this helps
