0 votes
DEfy washing machine Model DAW 373. The filter cap is closed securely, but when starting a washing cycle, even the water filling the machine, seems to drip through the filter cap, located at the bottom right-hand side of machine. Its never happened before and we have loosened to filter cap before this to check for debris , but after the most recent check, it starting to drip. The thread seems to be OK.

This could be due to a damaged filter seal, which is located in the pump chamber. To get to the filter there is usually a door at the bottom right-hand side (but this depends on your actual model of course).

Safety First! Please make sure that you have disconnected the appliance from the mains before beginning any repair.

You will need to drain the water from the filter and make sure you place a tray or towels underneath to collect any excess water, better to be safe than sorry.

Check for any signs of damage to the filter seal, any damage would have an impact on its ability to make a watertight seal.

Make sure the filter and its housing are in good condition and the filter is replaced properly to stop water from seeping out.

If you’re unable to stop the leak, then it might be time to replace the filter assembly.
