Is this an HE2 washer? if it is, open door gently tug at bellows top left hand corner you should see a small piece of clothing stuck between tub and dispenser inlet to the tub.

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.
Good luck!

Thank you so much bacoo for the advice. The HE2 washer had sucked up a sock right where you said to check. Took some time getting sock out of such small area but did it. Thanks for saving us much money.

Inside the dispenser drawer, at the bottom there is a tab that you can push down to remove the dispenser drawer. Remove the drawer and check if the dispenser holes are clogged, this is a common cause.

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 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.

DISPENSER WILL NOT DRAIN


Waag, pull that dispenser drawer out of there, push down on the tab-left side in the back. Now take your index finger and see if you have something blocking the water feed hole to the tub. It will be on the inside front. Sometimes I find bottle cap disks blocking the inlet. Start a cycle with the drawer out of there and observe the water flow, if it's backing up, you have something blocking that inlet. You can always pause/cancel. Catriver.

He2 leaking from detergent dispensor


Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. This tube controls the water level. Another thing that could be the problem: Try to take the top of the machine off; there are three tubes coming into the dispenser box, these may hv come loose or something. Connect well.
