Hello - Sounds like the washer could possibly have a blocked dispenser cap, screens are restricted or an issue with the water pressure in home. Are you using a low-sudsing, high efficiency detergent? If so, but issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately.

SOURCE: I need to remove the

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France.

Different washer dispensers are removed in different ways unfortunately and I do not know your particular machine!
However-
at the rear centre of some dispensers is a lip which requires pushing down as you pull it out (often on the conditioner tray if that is in the centre. On others there is a catch underneath. On yet others you have to lift the tray up at the last moment for it to come out!

When you do remove it, check the conditioner tray as being the culprit. You will probably need to separate a cover thing from it to expose the little pipe/tube down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It can become blocked by a mixture of powder and conditioner so easily!

It's worth checking fairly regularly.

Good luck,

John C

My kenmore he2 wont dispence the soap in the soap dispencer


Evening to you
Allow the washer to start a cycle and have the dispenser drawer ajar and observe through which dispenser the water goes.
Does the first stream go through the pre-wash dispencer,secondly notice where the main stream goes and lastly where the softener would go. If this can help you in any way just put use the dispencers as fits the washing.
goodluck

I have the CFW-8000 washing machine. When the


It sounds like the timer showing 1:09 is the time in minutes (109 minutes = 1 hour 49minutes) which is approximately the same as your own timer shows.

The soap dispenser often gets blocked and you will have to remove it and clean away all the residual, built up soap.
It sounds like the drain plug in the base of the unit has become blocked and that is why the soap dispenser is filling with water. All the water SHOULD DRAIN THROUGH the dispenser when it washes the soap down into the washing machine.
Also sounds like your water or fabric softener is blocked too!

Take the plastic parts out and clean away all soap residues.

Hello there:
Here is a few tips that might help you out
Hope that they are very helpful for you
Best regards Mike
Washing machine is leaking Washing machine leaks are very common. There are many places a washing machine can leak from although most leaks come from the same few places. The most common cause for a leaking washing machine is the door seal. Door seals often get holes in them and water leaks down the inside of the washing machine which then runs out under the front. Water leaking down the front of the washing machine from the door can be caused by a worn door seal (the flange part that the door glass presses against when closed) or something trapped between the door seal and the door glass which breaks the seal. If the door seal doesn't look worn, or it's too young to be worn, then try cleaning the door seal's flange and the door glass on the inside of the door. Bits of cotton, un dissolved washing machine detergent etc can cause a leak.
Soap dispenser leaks
The next most common cause of a leaking washing machine is the soap dispenser. Leaking water from a soap dispenser is often caused by a blockage, or water pressure that is simply too high. Despite seeing many leaking soap dispensers, I've never seen a soap drawer with a seal, they just rely on water not getting to the front which is not really good enough. Some Hoover soap dispensers in particular, are renowned for leaking, and over the years Hoover have had to introduce modified soap dispensers twice.
Some washing machines, can flood water out of the soap dispenser when a hose gets blocked (usually with un dissolved soap powder) Indesit, and Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and the hose wasn't wide enough. Un dissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor hot water pressure can block this hose solid. (Note: water flooding out of the front of a washing machine's soap dispenser can also be an indication of overfilling or a partial pump blockage if it does it when spinning)
Finally, black gunge in the top of the soap dispenser can cause water to spray towards the front and leak. Take out the soap dispenser drawer and look at the roof of the soap dispenser. If it's covered in black gunge, blocking some of the water holes, it could be causing problems. In extreme cases I've had to replace the dispenser.
Tips for finding a leak on a washing machine
  • If you have a leaking washing machine, and you can't see where it's coming from, shove some newspaper underneath the washing machine. The slightest drop will give a clue where the water is leaking from. Pull the sheet out regularly to check for water leaks.
  • Water can run round things and drip onto other parts. Be careful with your diagnosis, as water dripping from a hose at the bottom could actually be leaking from somewhere else higher up.
  • Leaks usually leave marks, so it's possible to see something is leaking even without witnessing it. The soap suds that come out with the leaking water leave white trails. Rust is a good indicator of a water leak too. However, if you have had a previous leak cured, the "evidence" of a leak may still be present so be sure you don't blame a part that was repaired in the past.
  • If the washing machine leaks only at the end of the wash, when water is being pumped out. Make sure water isn't backing up and cascading over the top of a blocked drain pipe in the plumbing.
  • WARNING: Don't get electrocuted trying to witness a leak. It's dangerous running the washing machine with the top or back off.

SOAP DISPENSING


The soap dispenser is intended for both liquid and powder detergents. If you have a problem with mildew, then you may need to clean it occasionally with bleach water.
