Water pours from detergent basin-Whirlpool Duet Sport

Water pours out of the detergent basin soon after the cycle starts. Some water does reach the basin itself, but the majority ends up on the laundry room floor. Any ideas what could be causing this?

    We took out the dispenser and it's not looks fine. My first instinct was that the hose that leads to the basin was plugged with someting. We took off the top of the washer and the 2 hoses that lead to washer basin seem clear (to the touch). Why are there 2 hoses anyway? Yes, we use liquid HE detergent and have been using it since we bought the unit 18 months ago. Could it have anything to do with the little "arm" on the top of the dispenser? That seems to have something to di with the direction of the water flow.

    same problem with my whirlpool front load machine. I don't get it! Sometimes it drains fine and other time water just pours out all over the floor from the soap dispenser. Any ideas on what to do??

    Same here. It just started doing this. I've run a number of drain cycles, but that doesn't seem to effect it. I checked the drain pipe and it is clear. The water is just not getting into the drum.

How are the Whirlpool Duet washer & dryers serviced? From the front or the back

you have to pull it out,this code means you're having prblems with the washer filling,most likely it will be the water valve but i would shut the water off,take the lines off of the washer,stick them into the washer or a bucket and turn the water on,if the water comes out then you know it's the washer and you need to change out the water valve on the washer.

My whirlpool duet sport is leaking from the front underneath. Not from the door. When the wash cycle starts it starts spraying water out the bottom. Does not do it when it drains.

It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.
