SOURCE: Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen

This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.

SOURCE: remove and replace fabric softener dispenser on kenmore model 20952992

I just did it. All you do is pull up on the blue part -- put the fingers of both hands under the rim and pull. It isn't screwed or bolted on. If there's a lot of gunk built up, it's all the harder to pull up. Be prepared for some yucky stuff. It would be nice if that whole section would come out, since you have to clean the area below with Q-tips.

How do I clean out the soap dispenser of the washing machine?


Hi Mary,
I just did this on my Kenmore front load but you didn't identify your make or model. In my case the soap dispenser is in a drawer that pulls out and by depressing a lever the whole thing could be removed and easily cleaned.

I have a Kenmore Elite top load that is leaking some water on the floor. I had this repaired before and I know the problem that time was the liquid chlorine bleach dispenser was dirty and needed cleaning....


Usually the soap tray has a black tab at the back of the soap dispenser tray , remove the tray and take a cloth with some CLR and rub the top of the slot were the tray fits into the washing machine. If you look inside you will find that there are holes in there this is were the water come through to wash the soap out, chances are that it is starting to block the holes with either calcium or soap. Hope this helps you out.

Soap Dispenser won't empty


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.

Kenmore He3t soap dispenser divider missing


You can find a replacement divider at searspartdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Dispenser" heading on the next page for item number 24 (part number 8181730). There's an excellent exploded view parts diagram to refer to for ease of component identification. I hope this is what you were looking for.
