Question about Washing Machines

Diplomat 8512 Washing machine - water spilling out of detergent tray? Here's hoping for a simple solution.... When I start any program the water fills up the drum and then starts to pour out of the detergent tray (*Which seems to close fine). The machine is built into the units and seems level. The spin works fine & the filter is clear. Any help would be appreciated!

This is a problem with the pressure system usually caused by a build up of powder residue but can be caused by other blockages. Remove machine lid and locate pipe which is about 6mm in diameter. follow pipe down which will lead to pressure bottle. Clean out and replace and should be ok. If bottle is clear check pipes for other blockages and check preesure pipe for damage.

Detergent dispenser is filling with water and water is running out of the dispenser. cannot see anything wrong , cracked or missing o-ring

Remove the dispenser tray from the machine and clean the exit passage if plugged with washing compounds. Use a liquid detergent if you are not already doing so. If the tray looks ok, you may have excess water pressure which might be forcing more water flow than the tray can handle. Another respondent suggested turning the supply faucets down somewhat to reduce the amount of water coming into the machine. If you have your own well, the system water pressure can be turned down at the pump control (about 35 to 40 PSI is about right). Hope this helps!

After washing clothes, water stays in the detergent tray.

Best plan is probably to take the detergent tray right out of the machine, then take it to bits before washing it out with hot running water and a toothbrush.

The problem with these things is that the bit that blocks up is pretty well hidden until you dismantle the tray.

If water is being dispensed from both sides of the detergent tray, dismantle washing machine and remove top plate of the detergent tray and clean thoroughly. Water overflows from both sides during the rinse cycle to add softener to the rinse. On our washing machine it was blocked. During the service it was changed but can be washed out to solve problem.
