Question about Kenmore 44102 Front Load Washer
Everything seems to be open. I found no cloggs.
I actually solved this problem. The water wasn't flowing into the machine, so there was a back up. We removed the rubber gasket around the washer door, and looked inside, and lo and behold, there was a sock jamming the water flow from the soap dispenser!
Now, it's working like a charm!! good luck to everyone else, and thanks for the advice!

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 (re: dlypooh), 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.
Hope that helps!

Tips for a great answer:
You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub. Pull the dispenser drawer completely out. There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it. Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening. Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose. This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.
Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again. If the dispenser still leaks, then I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and fix this problem.
