Water is pouring out of my dispenser drawer


I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.

Water leaking from deyergant compartment


Make sure these isn't any foreign objects in the tube that leads into the drum from the detergent tray.

Remove the top of the unit. 2 screws in the back. Top left and top right and slide the top off. Look under the tray and locate the tube and feel around. You may have to remove the tube to get a better look.

We have a Miele W830 Novotronic washing machine. Water started pouring out the bottom l.h. door from drain pump area when we tried to do a load of washing tonight. We've taken it out and cleaned it...


Although this answer is obviously not current any more I thought it may help others. We recently had the same problem with our machine. The clamp holding the hose to the detergent drawer became loose and the hose came off, allowing water to pour right down to the drain pump area. By undoing the 3 screws behind the detergent drawer + the 3 bolts around the door, I was able to open the front of the machine and tighten the hose clamp.

Leaking from Detergent tray


TAKE THE DETERGENT TRAY OUT AND CLEAN IT.
IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS TURN THE WATER DOWN TO A DRIBBLE AND SEE IF THIS FIXS THE FAULT. IF IT DOES--- THE WATER IS SPLASHING UP THE FRONT OF THE TRAY AND OVER THE TOP.
1) TAKE THE TRAY OUT 2) LOOKING AT THE TOP OF THE CAVITY ,COUNT BACK 4 ROWS OF HOLES, DRIILL THEM OUT TO 1/4 INCH . 3) BLOCK THE FIRST 3 ROWS OF HOLES WITH SILSATIC.

IF THE SLOW FILL DOES NOT FIX THE PROBLEM TAKE THE 2 SCREWS OUT OF THE BACK AND SLIDE THE TOP OFF, YOU WILL THEN BE ABLE TO SEE THE DISPENSER AND THE HOSES GOING TO IT. THEY MAY BE DAMAGED.

Machine doesn't dispense detergent


Here's a few suggestions you can try. First, open the dispenser tray far enough to where you can see inside. Enter diagnostics mode by selecting DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN and pushing ANY button under OPTIONS 4 times (it has to be the SAME button, though). This will enter the washer into diagnostics mode which checks the hot and cold water fill functions, the dispenser tray functions, tumble, spin and drain. Watch inside the dispenser tray to see if you can see any water flushing through the various compartments (detergent, bleach, fabric softener). The water should be fairly steady and forceful. There's not much else, besides gravity, that forces the detergent into the wash tub. Now...if you don't see the desired water flushing action that you should see, check the overhead portion of the dispenser cavity. Pull the tray all the way out for this. There are a series of holes where the water is forced through. Sometimes these holes become clogged and will not allow enough water in during the fill and rinse cycles. It's usually the fabric softener side that becomes blocked, though. You can take some cotton cotton swabs and perform the tedious task of cleaning each hole if they are blocked. I've had to do this before and it does fix the problem. The other possiblities are the fill valve not allowing enough water pressure through (but, you didn't mention anything about a slow fill problem), or a kinked or blocked hose coming from the fill valve. If you wish to check the fill valve, turn the water off and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Check the inlet screens for clogs. If you have hard water, well water, or BOTH, it is common for the inlet screens to get accumulated with sediment. Again, some cotton swabs will clean the majority of the sediment from the screens (you can use a little white vinegar as well). If you wish to check the inlet hoses from the fill valve, remove the top of the washer by removing the three torx screws along the back of the washer. The top will slide back then lift off. There are a series of hoses from the fill valve to the dispenser. Check to see if any of them have become kinked. I hope this information is helpful to you. Post back with comments if you need further assistance.

Water in softener dispenser


the conditioner works by siphoning out when the water from filling mixes with it, the excess water then drains away the same way, when you took the drawer out, you must have either not cleared all the powder or not put it back together properly, if it worked before it has to be something you have done, sorry, just keep trying different ways and double check to see if all bits have been cleaned properly if i have helped please rate me
