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.

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."
