Water pouring out from the detergent dispenser

I have a Whirlpool; Duet Sport, purchased in 2006. The hose from the detergent dispenser to the machine is backing up almost immediately when the water comes into the dispenser. Any thoughts?

    Water pours ourt from under our detergent dispenser too on our Whirlpool Duet Sport WFW8300SW02. We took off the top and the hoses that lead from the detergent dispenser to the laundry basin seem clear to the touch. There are 2 hoses though....is one for the water with detergent and one for the water with bleach/fabric softener? We're not sure. Some of the water does make it to the laundry basin, but the majority pounrs out onto the floor. With the top off, I noticed a lever at the back of the detergent dispenser. Does anyone know what that is for? Could the lever be broken and displacing water? I'm clueless about all of this!!!

Remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the panel in place. With the three screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. This will give you a full view of your dispenser and components. I strongly suspect that you have a hose leading from the dispenser to the fill tube along the door that may be either kinked or clogged. Inspect the hose for any kinks. You may have to remove it and flush with hot water. Let me know what you find. I hope this helps.

    After removing the dispenser tray I can see the dispenser base full of water. I squeezed the large drain tube (reaching in above the tub you can feel this tube) and you can see the water level change. I ran hot water into this base (start slow low pressure flow) and kept working this tube and eventually the clog cleared.

Whirlpool duet sport is clogged. Water is bypassing the detergent dispenser, and leaking out of the washer. No water is entering the washer. HOw can it be unclogged?


If you take the drawer out you may be able to gain access to where the clog is, if not remove the lid of the machine and you will see the fill hose from the drawer to the tub. You may be able to remove the pipe without removing the dispenser housing or you may be able to get to the blockage by removing the pipe from the drum.

My Whirlpool duet sport washer is spilling out the water from the detergent dispenser all over the floor. Can you give me your opinion? Thanks!


sounds like the hose from the detergent dispenser to the tub is clogged.  this is rubber so i would not want to try to force anything through but you might want to try something along the lines of a plastic cable wire tie but be very gentle.  other than that i would call for service.

Whirlpool Duet Sport WFW8300SW02. Water pours out detergent disp


You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Frontload washer leaking from under detergent dispenser


Hello, I worked on a problem like this a few days ago. Your problem is going to be a blockage in the inlet to the drum. To fix this problem find the inlet pipe normally located above the door behid a flap of rubber..push your fingers up there to see if you can feel a blockage..If not your going to have to remove the lid of the machine to access the pipe that leads from the detergent drawer to the tub. Look at the rear top of the machine..You will see three screws....remove them and push back and lift the top panel (lid) now you should be able to access the pipe. Pull the pipe off and clean it out, i suspect you will find a sock blocking the pipe :) If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike
