Question about Washing Machines

Sears Kenmore HE2 front load washer

My washing machine has water flowing from just under the soap dispenser. I've removed the dispenser and checked the hose, and the little bit I can fee I don't feel a blockage. I'm not sure how to check the rest of the hose to see if a sock or something got stuck in there. Do you have any ideas? I have an He2 that has the same problem. Water leaks from under the soap drawer, and when I remove the soap drawer I see standing water. I assume its a clog but do not know how to unclog. I have tried fingers, and a straw but do not feel anything. It seems to connect to the bellows gasket, so I am afraid of ripping it. Any help would really be appreciated.

There's no reason you couldn't just put powder HE detergent on top of the clothes before you wash. The water will still run through the soap dispenser

My Kenmore HE2 Pluse Front Load Washer is leaking water out of the Detergant compartment like it is overflowing.


sounds like the hose from the soap dispenser to the tub is blocked. might need the repairman for this one. anything you might try sticking in there to clean or clear it may damage it. also watch what kind of detergent and amount you are using. can cause problems.

Kenmore front load washer is leaking water from soap


We had a similar problem with water coming out of the soap dispenser when the washer was run. I assumed that it was a problem with the water draining as everyone else posted here. I took off the front panel, got rid of the junk and drained it. Although this was great, it did not solve the original problem. It turns out that there was a sock stuck in between where the water comes out of the soap dispenser and in to the main compartment. Pulled it out with a needle nose plier and good to go. Thanks to everyone for their input here.

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

He2 front loading washing machine leak at the soap dispenser regi


Hi dlypooh, thought I would post the solution here as well for anybody who needs to do a search in the future...

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 (re: dlypooh), 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!
