On the fast spin 1200 setting there is a slight water leak at the base of the front of the machine?

Where is the filter?!

But you could try removing the sump hose see if there is a clog in it ! Be careful of the float valve its a ball sat in a cup and can easily fall out.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Hi Geoff it doesnít have a filter as such. There is a sump hose to pump that has a catch pot. Coins buttons etc fall in but the pump is self cleaning. If itís leaking only on spin it might be a small hole in middle or top creases of door seal. Or soap
Powder drawer to run hose ( ie water flung up will spray out somewhere itís wouldnít drip out under gravity. Prob best to unplug and take top and back off and see where is wet and same underneath.

Good luck


This photo is of earlier logic yours will have a pressure hose connection on ( which sometimes clogs with grease - and stops the machine spinning )

There wasn't a ball valve with those machines - that was introduced on the New Wave/Classica ranges.

What might be leaking is the 'shaded-pole pump'. Seals perished. Probably any replacement pump would be a magnetic variant these days.
