LG Front Loading Washer overflows at detergent dispenser

We just bought this washer from Home Depot and went to use it and the water just gushes out at the detergent dispenser. Its like the water will not go down to the tub. LG has no technical advisers at their customer service and will have to send a repairman. Any easy fixes.?????

    I have the same problem. The water won't go down into the tub (or does so very slowly) and it gushes out of the dispenser onto the floor. Have you found a fix?

    water oozes and overflows out of dispenser area. I took the cover off, and

    checked the hose. the hose is clear of debri. I believe the problem might be

    the computer board. I think that maybe a relay is not working properly.

    So the water does not know when to stop. the computer shuts the water off.

    the computer should know each time water is needed. softener, bleech,
    and so on. But the water doesnt stop. it just keeps feeding into the

    and floods my house. please help if u have any ideas.

    I am having the same problem. How do I get the top (or other access) off of the washer to check for blockage of the hose at the back of the dispenser slot?

You mean where you put the regular HE soap in? That slot is normal to overflow. The water carries the soap down (Lift the little doohickie up, it's removable for powder deterg.), and it carries it all the way to the tub...Unless i don't get it...but I'm reading the phrase "Its like the water will not go down to the tub.", and it makes me think the whole tray is overfilling with water..if this is the case, I can't help you, but filling over of the Main HE Soap tray is normal. (Just a little, if the whole thing starts filling uncontrollably, hit the power button.)

Where does the fabric softener and washing powder go in the LG WF-F5207PC 5.5KG top loading washing machine?

Put powdered detergent in the box at the back of the opening of the washer (opposite the control panel when the lid is open). If you use a liquid detergent, dilute it 1:1 with water and pour into the bleach dispenser at the front left of the washer. The fabric softener dispenser is near the bleach dispenser but a little closer to the tub and towards the middle of the left side of the unit. As with a liquid detergent, dilute 1:1 (30ml:30ml) with water before pouring into the dispenser.

If the fabric softener dispenser isn't working, add the fabric softener in the final rinse.

The manual for the washing machine is available here: . You will need to review the unit or enter a security code.

I hope this helps.

Frigidaire front load washer (GLTF1040ASO) is leaking water by the detergent dispenser area. Any suggestions on what this could be?

This is usually caused by solidified detergent blocking the water ways in the detergent dispenser.

Check the inside of the dispenser to make sure the outlet holes are not blocked.

Most dispensers can be removed for cleaning check your appliance instructions for details.

Water runs from out the detergent dispenser on my front loader

Try pulling the drawer out again and look in the hole. Look on the bottom for detergent or softener piled up and allowing the water to come out the door or anything clogging the tube in the back of the hole. Look on the top, there are a bunch of little holes, make sure none of these are clogged, clean with a toothbrush and sewing pin if clogged. Take the drawer completely apart and clean thoroughly, check for any cracks. If nothing is found here Take the lid off with the 3 screws in the back and push the lid toward the back of washer and lift off. Run the washer and check for the leaks with a flashlight. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELECTRICAL. As there is a shock hazard with the lid off.
Thank you

Water gushes out dispenser

Something has gotten into the fill tube hose of the tub.  You will need to pull the drawer out and look down in the dispenser assembly to see if there is something blocking the hose.
