Persistent Hotpoint washer dryer leak on dry cycle only

So. Here's what's going on...

I can't get the washer dryer to stop leaking when on a drying cycle.
Each wash cycle works perfectly, pumps out fine, no leaks, no hassle.

Here's what I've tried...

Removed lid, noticed that on drying cycle the washer fills from the hot water inlet, which is immediately pumped through a hose in to the same tank as the cold water inlet. The leak comes from the hose inside the machine that transfers the water in to the tank. It's not a split, it's coming from where it connects at either end, so I tried a jubilee clip and the leak moved to the other end, so then I used a jubilee clip on the opposite end of the hose, the pressure seems so great that despite the 2 clips it still fires out water at high pressure.

Is it possible to control the inlet pressure or is there something more glaringly obvious at hand here?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
