If its a front loader, check that the bottom of the plastiic dispenser unit when looking from inside the machine, not inside the dispenser) has been comprimised (broken) by a metal nut that sticks out of the tumbler unit. You can put a flashlight in the top and see if there are any leaks.

Water Drains from underneath the soap dispenser when I start machine.


This could be an easy fix. Lift out the whole tray and wash in really warm water in your sink and wipe out anything you see inside the machine. It could be a lump of Downey or soap caught up. Good Luck.

Lots of water pouring out on to the floor from the laundry soap dispenser in my front loader and doesn't say any error and when i start it pours out


Disconnect first the mains, power plug off the wall. You could have a clog in your soap drawer; pull the dispenser drawer completely out. There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer to remove. Clean the soap drawer with an old tooth brush. The usual block could be old soap, softener, etc. (you could also be using too much soap powder). I usually use just above 125ml (my measure cup says ml, I use front loader powder for the 5.5kg load) The wash is very gud. 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. Next could be one of hoses has become loose, should be re-fixed. Examine by removing top of the front loader; this will give you a gud view of the pipes.If helped, click.

Water is not transferring into tub through soap tray and is pouring out from the tray.


you have a blocked pipe that lets the sope and water into the washer drum try pushing a curtain spring wire down the pipe to push out the bockage or using a pipe blow down it to blow the stuck sope out?
(you need good lungs to do this bit),,,a small boy also help's,, send him down the pipe??? when you clear this pipe wash it out well with hot water,,

Water is coming out of the soap dispenser, what do


We had water pour out of the dispenser of our Kenmore HE2 washer. hot water helped us for one load then i realize that a trapped rag was the problem We were actually able to pull the face cloth out of the intake tube without taking everything apart!
opened the washer door and feel around inside the rubber seals to find where the intake tube connects to the drum (upper-left side). felt a small bit of cloth sticking out of the tube and were able to slowly work it out by pulling back and forth. and pulled it completely out thats all it was try this

Water is pouring out of where the soap dispenser is. Can anyone help?


its pouring out because the dispenser is getting clogged in somewhere and not letting the water to the drain pump so its pouring from the soap dispenser. Remove the dispenser, pour water into the opening and make sure water can get into the machine freely. Inspect the opening for soap build up.
If water goes down slowly , open the washer door and feel around the bellow for anything blocking the water inlet port into the washer (socks can sometimes get wedged up there and cause a blockage).
If it all checks out ok, make sure the machine is properly leveled and not leaning forward.
Hope that helps!

Water pouring out of detergent dispenser drawer


There is a rubber hose that connects dispenser housing to outer tub of washer. Disconnect hose at outer tub and fish out article of clothing that has wedged itself in there cuasing water to back up and pour out of dispenser. In the future use a linen bag for small articles of clothing such as underwear and socks.
