I had this problem a few years ago but lived where there was a really helpful spares shop. The problem was that soap had clogged a part near the soap dispenser and I was told to tryand wash it out or the shop would be able to sell the part. I remember that I got to it by removing the top of the machine. Sorry I cant be more specific but it was a while ago and it was trial and error that finally solved it.

Water leaking from detergent drawer


The first thing to do is take note of what the washer is doing when water leaks out in order to help pinpoint the cause. Does it only leak when filling? Is it leaking during wash or rinses? Or is it leaking only when it goes into spin?

Only leaks when filling

  • Water pressure that's too strong. Some dispensers can't cope with high water pressure. Make sure the washer is level as one leaning forward can leak if combined with high water pressure. Try turning the tap on the washer down. Only suspect this if you know the water pressure is high and it looks like it's gushing in quite fast on fill
  • If there is an optional detergent flap fitted in the drawer for holding liquid detergent make sure it is removed or drawn into the up position if using powder otherwise it prevents detergent running down into the drum
  • A build up of grease and slime in the nozzles at the top of the dispenser where the water flows in causing water to spray at the front and run out when filling. Check this article -black jelly-like substance in soap dispenser and on soap drawer (In extreme cases I've had to replace the dispenser.)
  • A build up of undissolved detergent in the base of the soap dispenser under the drawer (depending on the design). Remove the soap drawer and check the bottom of the soap dispenser for a build up of detergent that could allow water to run over the lip of the dispenser
  • Blocked dispenser hose: Some washing machines can flood water out of the soap dispenser if the hose leading out of the dispenser into the tub gets blocked. Blockages can be something put into the drawer by a child or a chunk of undissolved detergent tablet. Indesit, and Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and it wasn't wide enough. Undissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor water pressure can block this hose solid causing water to back up. Unplug machine, remove lid and feel this hose carefully for obstructions.
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts to fill and never stops it will flood out of the drawer eventually - Washing machine overfills
Leaks out of drawer during the wash or rinse cycle
  • Too many suds? If you can see the door glass is white with foam up to the top it could be foaming out of the dispenser. Too much foam in the washing machine
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts washing but the water doesn't stop coming in it will eventually fill the drum so much it will start to pour out of the soap drawer and other places. If this is the fault you should be able to see the drum is so full of water it's making a different sound, maybe labouring under the load, and the door glass full to the top with water. You should also hear that water is still running into the machine and be able to detect it by opening the drawer. However, in most cases an over filling washing machine should trigger an error code long before it gets to this stage but if you suspect overfilling check this page - Washing machine overfills
  • Surging: There are (often intermittent) faults that can cause the motor to spin out of control on wash or rinses. Instead of turning slowly the fault causes the motor to surge into spin instead which throws the laundry and all the water about violently. Water can then be forced out of the soap dispenser drawer. This fault should be relatively rare these days but if you observe this behaviour call an engineer to diagnose the cause.
Leaks from drawer only when spinning
  • If it only comes out on spin it can be caused by a partial blockage preventing the water being pumped out fast enough resulting in excess water being thrown around on spin and backing up into the dispenser. This fault is similar to the surging fault described in the last list but different in that the problem only occurs when it's on a proper spin cycle and much of the water has been pumped away. Troubleshooting this fault is all about finding out why it isn't emptying the water properly which is usually due to a partial blockage. Follow the same troubleshooting as described for a washer not pumping any water out at all - Washing machine won't empty water
  • If water is being forced out of the drawer when the washer is spinning but it is on wash or rinse and shouldn't be spinning follow the procedure for surging in the previous section above

The middle compartment in my drawer of the washing machine keeps filling with water and the water stays in there and won't empty by itself


This isn't unusual in the fabric softener compartment but in the other compartments it could be caused by soap residue build-up. It is wise to remove the drawer completely after every few washes and to check both the drawer and the aperture, especially the outlet holes that are exposed once the drawer is removed. Any blockages here could cause a flood while the washer is filling.

Liquid detergents cause fewer problems but many users prefer to place detergents directly in the drum with the laundry these days rather than using the drawer dispensers.

If in doubt I suggest you spend time reading the instruction leaflet and it is wise to add a white appliance engineer to your circle of friends for inside information and reasonably-priced repairs.

Detergent drawer filled with water


remove the drawer and clean the siphon it sounds as if it is blocked up either with powder or concentrated fabric softener. this should fill up with water and then empty itself due to gravity. the siphon should look like an upside down cup on a cylinder.

Washing machine leaks from above door below soap dispenser


Check to make sure the washer is level and not leaning forward. If it is leaning forward as the dispenser fills it can sometimes force the water forward out of the drawer instead of emptying backwards to go to the drum.

Prewash flashing and machine Overfilling


Their is a small bowl connected by a see trough plastic pipe leading up to the preshour switch, that you will have to clean out the bowl and disconect the pipe from the presure switch and blow trough this to clean out any droplets of water. Replace then try the machine again, it may fill up again, dont dispair, empty the machine and re-blow trough the hose again with it disconected from the preshure switch. To empty the machine of water place the outlet hose into a bucket 3 or 4 times.
