Draw for washing powder won't open

Any ideas? So far I've managed to pull the cover off but luckily the clips haven't snapped. However the draw simply will not pull out.

Re: Draw for washing powder won't open

The drawer will be stuck in by detergent or softener, only way to get out is to prise out from dispenser box, in the past I have managed to lean machine backwards against a wall and poor a kettle of boiling water around the edges of drawer sometimes this will soften detergent other wise only one sollution brute force, soory no other way of getting it out.

How do I remove the top of the washing powder drawer unit for cleaning

I assume its a front loader? If so, the centre of the drawer (when open) has a clip which you push down to release the dispenser. It should slide straight out.

My hotpoint wmud843p washing machine is leaking from the detergent draw at the start of the rinse cycle?

Open the draw. Grip it tightly and pull it out. clean the draw and clean the dispenser housing. Usually leaks due to powder etc getting stuck under dispenser draw causing water to bridge across and leak under draw. Also use a pipe cleaner or cable tie to clear any blocked holes in the dispenser.

The detergent draw won't pull in and out easy. You've really got to 'pull' to get it open and 'push' really hard to make it close.

theres is probably soap inside the track where the drawer slides, just clean it out and you should be fine.

Washing powder and conditioner draw keeps getting blocked

The easiest thing would be to switch to liquid detergent or a different brand of powder. There might be diminished water flow. Try cleaning the nozzles where the water comes into the dispenser at.
