Possible the tray is clogged; you can pull it out to clean it.

This may or may not be your problem. But we had this and the way I fixed it was to turn the tap down slightly that fed the washer as the water was splashing out. Hope this helps!

Water leaks from my detergent dispenser from my front loader washing machine?


This is usually indicative of soemthing blocking the flow of water out of the soap tray, down the connecting pipe and in to the drum chamber.
The soap tray doesnt have any seals as water should just flow into the tray, wash out the soap / fabric softner, and then flow out the back of the tray and down the connecting pipe. When working correctly, there is no pressure or water back-up to cause the water to reach the front of the soap tray.

Take out the tray - your machine user manual will show you how, and check both the tray itself and the "hole" it slots in to for either a build up of solidified soap powder, or some other foreign object. If still leaking, remove the tray again and try to get your hand (a woman's or teenager's hand being smaller is best) down the large oulet at the back of the "hole" the tray slots in to to feel for a blockage.
Do you have young children ? A washing machine soap tray is a great place to hide things !

Occasionally, if the smaller pipes that deliver hot and cold water to the tray come adrift, this can spray water at the front of the machine. This water then has only one real way out - via the soap tray "hole". Most often this will be the cold water pipe as this has higher water pressure to cope with. The only way to check this is to take the top of the machine off.

If after all of the above it still leaks, you'll either need to dismantle the machine enough to see the back of the soap tray "hole", connecting pipe and drum chamber for a better look for problems, or call an engineer.

Water leaks from softner dispenser


I had same thing with MtgNeptune frnt loader. Manual sed may be a kink in the front drain hose, caused by sudden burst in water pressure. Not in my case. A service call and $90 laterwasn't fixed. I pulled the soap tray and found rinse water wasn't going down the well as fast as it was filling, causing water to spill down front, and around the door. I turned down the water pressure 2 days ago and 9 loads later- no problem! It may take a few minutes longer to fill, but far less work than mopping after each load or hitting 'pause' and 'start' while waiting for the the water level to go down. We're on a well and ocassionally have change in water pressure. I don't know if this was the problem, but it was definately my solution! I turned the intake vavles at the wall to 1/2 pressure. Floor is staying dry and the drain tray beneath is also dry ($12.00 Menards). I hope this helps.

Softner wont go into the washing machine


removing the front plate won't help you, take the draw out. Get a long bag tie or inner core of any mains twin and earth cable and push it into the holes in the top of the dispensor, move it about in/out etc, changing the holes as required, this normally works, if it doesn't the dispensor lid is available as a seperate part and is quite easy to change.

We had the same problem- for us it was because we were mixing laundry booster (Oxyclean) with liquid soap in the dispenser. It seems the water running through the tray had insufficient pressure to properly flush the tray out, so residue accumulated on the back & underside of the tray. Our water pressure is good here, and we don't use a water softener or filters that can reduce the pressure. Unfortunately it seems to just be a bad design of the soap dispenser tray.

We also had a problem with water/bleach leaking from our soap dispenser- when we used the bleach compartment in the dispenser we got leaks dripping onto the floor from behind the front cover of the washing machine. It was running down the front of the washer behind the front cover & coming out onto the floor. The repair guy said this was because the dispenser tray was pulled out too far, but the reason we were pulling the soap tray out so far was because the bleach compartment was too far back in the tray to use if we didn't. Now we just leave the drawer partially closed & pour the bleach directly into the soap compartment along with the soap.

Either you have a clogged line going from the compartment to the tub or the valve is sticking for the softner.
