SOURCE: water comes out of soap dispenser

http://www.applianceaid.com/neptune.html click this link and click the required option in the link Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.


  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.


During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.


  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

SOURCE: he2 front loading washing machine leak at the soap dispenser regi

Hi dlypooh, thought I would post the solution here as well for anybody who needs to do a search in the future...

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!

SOURCE: leaking soap dispenser

There should not be suds up that high in the washer. You are experiencing a over sudsing condition and spin is throwing up throw the fill line in the dispenser. Run some fabric softener in a load with no clothes to clean out any hidden suds. Then use only HE (High efficiency) detergent and half of what they recommend! The softer the water the less the soap you use. Sounds like you may be using non HE detergent. My guess if the machine is fine.

SOURCE: leaks from soap dispenser

I don't have a front load, but it sound like a gasket has come loose. Is it for liquid dispensing? Are your clothes comming out clean? If you get inside of the washer and see where the dispenser attaches to the outside drum, my guess is it is either broken and you need to buy a new part or however it is attached has come loose. Not knowing the inside drawing of this washer, my suggestion is to find a mechanical schematic of the machine and go to the root of the problem,the dispenser itself. I am pretty sure it has just loosened up, whether it is a press fit or mechanically attached by screws to it. good luck.

SOURCE: My simple human sensor Soap Dispensor will not

Hi, you have this question in the wrong park of the site. But I did a quick google search and believe I may have found an answer for you. I'll copy and past what I found for you here. If this doesn't solve the issue you should probably repost this question

"In the spot where the soap dispenses, there is a very small plug which controls the flow which you need to gently pull out and release (not break off) in order to break the vacuum seal. This information is not included in the regular instructions, but rather is written on a small 2-inch square piece of paper in the box. I was getting very frustrated because I had "primed" the soap dispenser at least 30 times and nothing had come out. I noticed the small plug, and while looking through the box again found the small piece of paper with the additional instruction. After that, it worked great! I use a generic version of Soft Soap, and we find the lowest setting dispenses more than enough soap."

How do I remove the soap dispenser draw to clean it?


In general, soap dispensers are designed to be integral to the machine. While the machine was put together by human hands and therefore should be able to be disassembled in the same way, it may very well be more of a task than you wish to take on.

This answer assumes the dispenser is basically functional and you have no reason other than cleanliness to want to remove it.

I suggest you clean the dispenser in place and forego removing the unit. I think you will be happier in the long run with this approach.

Good Luck,
Pete

Why does it keep dispensing soap?


What do you mean "keep dispensing soap"? Is this a GE dishwasher with an automatic soap dispenser? Or do you mean that the soap lid won't latch or stay closed? Or are you talking about the rinse-aid dispenser leaking rinse-aid (which is fairly common)?

How do I Install batteries in simple human soap dispenser


The hunt for batteries is over with the introduction of simplehuman's new rechargeable sensor soap pump. The newest sensor pump has a battery that recharges with a USB power adaptor, ensuring users of the product will have an "always-on" touch-free soap dispensing experience, every time. Do you have the port for the USB adapter on your unit? If so, you don't have to replace, just charge.

Samsung WF218AN washing machine is leaking from the soap dispenser


Simple sugestion, try cutting back the water in flow rate from the taps, If this works, unscrew the hose from the tap and fit a stainless washer with a small hole in the inside, on top of the wire mesh water filter on the inlet pipe to restrict the flow. Hope it helps.

I have a Simple Human 14 oz sensor Soap Dispenser


This is what I found in the Simplehuman FAQ's. I had to wait about 30 minutes for the light to stop blinking, but it seemed to work for me.

If the pump is unresponsive or the blue light is flashing, fresh batteries should resolve this issue. Please power off the pump completely. Once the pump is turned off, remove the old batteries. Please wait for the pump to reset (until the flashing light stops and preferably letting it rest overnight) before you install the new ones.
