Why is the soap dispenser on my LG washing machine full of water once machine is finished.

Soap dispenser on my LG SteamWasher - WM2487HRMA - is full of water once machine is finished. Found what looked like either lime deposits or crystalized detergent in soap dispensing tray.

Remove dispencer again, remove conditioner syphon assembly and clean up the little tube. Should then go okay

SOURCE: LG WM2277HS - water backing up into soap dispenser

The pipe from the soap dispenser to the tub is quite large, it seems as if the water isn't getting out of the dispenser quick enough. Pull the whole dispenser out of the machine. There is a release clip at the back of the cup with the tray fully open. Clean out all soap residue and scum. Sometimes there is also a spot or setting for liquid or powder detergent. Adjust accordingly. Reassemble and try it again.

SOURCE: soap won't dispense

the problem is quite easy. There are 2 valves on top of the dispenser box. When disconnected from power source please check whether the connections are secured. Sometimes the valve connections shake lose during transport or opperation. Also check the dispens drawer for clogging . This should be fixed easily. If you leave the top cover off and plug the machine in and start opperation there should be 120V on the valve connectors. If there is and water stil does not come out the valve is faulty and you have to order a new one.

SOURCE: Dispenser still full of water and fabric softener

My dispenser was always full at the end of the programme. I took the drawer out and pushed a drinking straw down the hole that takes the conditioner into the machine... this was bunged up with gunge... has been fine since.

To get rid of the residue and get your machine sparkling... 1/2 cup of Washing soda crystals on a 60 degree wash. Run machine with no washing and let it run the full cycle..
Add 1 desert spoonful of washing soda to every wash.. sprinkled in the gap in the door seal to keep the machine in tip top condition and smelling great.

You will find your conditioner smells amazing when you get rid of the gunk...

SOURCE: Water in soap holder after washing.

my washer is about 1 year old. It started leaving water in all the the compartments,soap,bleach and softner. I tried everything also. Nothing seemed to work. I finally took the hoses off the back of the machine, and the cold water hose screen was clogged up going into the machine. I cleaned all the screens and haven't had that problem again. I think there wasn't enough water pressure to flush out the containers. I dont think its gravity or suction, its water pressure. unless you get a blast of water into these compartments, there will always be water left in these containers.

Issues with leftover soap and water in soap dispenser when wash is done. Cleaned dispenser and still doing it!!! PLEASE HELP


Remove the soap drawer completely, and wash it in warm water. Clean the roof of the hole where the dispenser drawer is using a plastic pot brush and some hot water. There are holes where the water comes from and they get splashed with soap.

How do i get the soap dispenser unclogged?


Open the soap dispenser drawer and press the green drawer retainer (in the middle compartment) down while pulling the drawer outwards, this will release the catch on the drawer.

Why is water sitting in soap dispenser pullout drawer?


Water remaining in soap dispenser. In front loading washers made by LG (some Kenmore too), water may remain filled in the soap dispenser after the wash cycle. This may be caused by the siphon tube being contaminated by detergent residue. To clear it, remove the siphon cover from the tube, and clean them thoroughly, making sure that all residue is removed. Replace the cover and make sure it seats properly all the way down. This will ensure that the siphon starts and continues until the dispenser tray is emptied. A small amount of water, a half inch or less, remaining is normal. There is a video on YouTube that suggests buying a new detergent tray. Try cleaning it first. There are no parts that will break or wear out under normal use.

My new LG washer always has water in the soap dispenser, bleach dispenser, and fabric softener dispenser after the cycle has finished. Is this normal?


Mine too!! Very annoying, especially since the water then drains down onto to floor and has actually made the door hinges stiff! I just use powdered bleach now.

Soap not dispensed and dishes not washed


water is getting past the gasket during the start up cycle. by the time the door opens, the water has caked up the soap. also, its not clear when in the cycle the door is opening.
try using liquid soap.
also, take a peek just after the machine has finished filling and starts washing to see if the door is opened on the soap disp.
good luck

Doesn't suck up the soap from the tray while washing


Try to open your water tap to full or check the filter in the inlet valve or hose. There seems to be a problem with the water pressure entering the machine.
