I dont have anyone to recommend, but the outlet could be blocked, if your using powered in a cold fill machine its doses dissolve and eventually causes a blockage.

List your make and model and we may be able to find you some online advice, and save you a few quid if a few simple checks work.

Went to look at one of my customers washing machine. Asked when was the last time they had cleaned the filter....she said what filter..not been checked in 7 years.! Some cocktail sticks had jammed the filter in and also jammed the pump so had to drag it out flip it on its side and unclip the bottom rubber hoses. Hoped to find a load of coins init as well but only a rupee .. Your machine flooding could suggest a similar thing .

Could be something to do with your outlet pipe which is causing your machine to flood.

Check the Door Seals.
If its flooding as it fills.

Or take the lid off,
And see if the inlet pipe has come loose. Normally the lid is a couple of screws and it just pops off.


An engineer will do similar checks.

Once you work out whats wrong we can point you to a fix.

Yes, it's probably the pipe from the inlet valve to the soap tray, either come off or split. Should be an easy fix.

As there is soap in the water it won't be the inlet hose.

If it only leaks while drum is filling its probably the soap pipe (goes between soap box and drum), very common fault because there is a lot of movement on that pipe.

If it leaks during the wash its probably the drum/door seal.

If it carries on leaking after a wash then its probably one of the pump hoses, however recently I came across a pressure pipe (goes up to water level sensor) damaged from rubbing.

Too much detergent can also create leaks from excessive foaming, while cheap detergents need a big dose, good quality brand name detergents need surprisingly little.

Depends on the machine how much the parts are (from amazingly cheap to the ridiculous) and some machines have awkward access. Check the price before sanctioning the work, while it seems unnecessary waste, replacement sometimes makes more financial sense.
