Hi Rob Have found that the leak is comming from the front powder dispenser on the rinse cycle appx at 10 mins to finish Doesnt leak prior when machine starts up All has been dismantled and cleaned cant see anything out of the norm with dispenser tray everything seems to click in

OK, this is when the water is directed through the part of the tray that holds the conditioner. This is the only time that water enters through this compartment.

If the tray etc is clear, this is probably caused by a very slight increase in the water pressure. This is not noticed in the other parts of the dispenser but is in this one compartment.

I would suggest turning the water pressure down slightly, so as to slow the water down just slightly, as it enters the compartment, and this will stop the leak

In the meantime,
