SOURCE: Washer Leaks from Detergent Compartment

Two things might be wrong with this unit.  One problem is there is a blockage inside the hose that sends water into drum.  Make sure that's clear.  The other problem is the dispenser assembly may have a leaking problem and will spray water at an angle that will cause it to leak through the dispenser drawer.  My recommendation is to have the dispenser assembly inspected and possibly replaced.

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load. washer leaks out of the detergent compartment

try cleaning out detergent compartment if you can take compartment out the inside area may need to be cleaned out make sure the machine is not to full
and if there is mold you can try using pool shock about a spoon full on wash cycle by it self this well not hurt seals and is safer then bleach and also to control the mold use a pool algecide use litely two tbs to a spray bottle and keep door open after use
but it sounds like compartment door is not fitted properly i hope this helps

Here's our video guide to replacing a washingmachine drum lifter.
A broken agitator paddle can cause your clothesto tear. Don't let this happen when replacing one is relatively simple.
The plastic paddles in the drum on the later washing machines (WMA models) often come looseand come off altogether. They can be replaced. call them lifters. You usually insert a smallscrewdriver down one of the holes (it's the 3rd one on ) and gently press downwhile sliding the lifter out.
Washing trainers in a washing machine is reputedto damage the drum lifters and paddles inside the drum, particularly onnon-quality washing machines.
There are few types of drum lifter; drum Paddle lifters

SOURCE: hotpoint aquarius wmf940 wont spin or drain water

This is simply a problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. The empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. Your repeat of the rinse/spin cycle is giving it extra empty time and then the spin works OK.
You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model (not sure which with the model you mention) there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom ( behind the clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked. Ofter that, unscrew the round cap, remove the filter and clean.


If the filter is not there, you will need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine. If there is no filter at the front, pull the machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure it lines up, or it won't reassemble correctly). Now push the boot back onto the fitting at the bottom of the drum where it came from and tighten up the jubilee clip, making sure that it is fitted correctly (it too may have a small slot out of it that fits around a protrusion on the bottom of the housing).

I have a LG WM2016CW washing machine and recently I found the detergent leaks from the main wash detergent compartment. I notices the liquid drops below the compartment on the front surface. Please advise...


If no holes are in the detergent dispenser which shouldn't be hard to see if any exist then I would assume that you may be adding too much detergent. Also remove the detergent compartment and make sure there is no build up anywhere that may be blocking the flow of the detergent.

Completely dumb question


Hi, we have a hotpoint aquarius - the "fan" compartment on the left is for fabric conditioner, the blue thing is to save you measuring it out in the bottle cap. Number I is for prewash detergent (only if you're doing a prewash) and number II is the main detergent compartment, the one you would usually use. Hope this helps?
