Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
I cleaned dain at the bottom of washer and it did fine for 3 loads and on the 4th load started pouring water again
First check the drain hose behind the machine. It must not enter more than 4" to prevent siphoning situation. If that looks okay check for a sock or similar item between basket and tub. They seem to like to stick close to the dispenser drawer when they get in there and often cause the symptom you are describing. Make sure to check the drain hose between tub and drain pump for objects. When checking pump basket, stick a finger in and feel around the propeller of the pump. If it feels at all wobbly or bent to one side the pump may need to be replaced. If that doesn't solve your problem you may want to check this video:
It's a bit more involved and i about went to sleep listening to the guy but he's informative.

Remove the dipenser and feel down inside the hole. You will probably feel a detergent build up in the cavity. If so clean this out and rinse with hot water. This problem is becoming more common since people are washing more in cold water to save electricty. Some detergents and fabric softeners will not disolve in cold and it "gums" up the works. Post back to let me know what you find.

Solution for clogged soap dispenser on Kenmore He2. If you open the door and slightly pull the gray rubber seal away from the drum, at the 10:00 position, you can see if there is an item blocking the inside soap despenser drain pipe. I had a sock stuck in there and I gently used two fingers (one from each hand) to grab the lodged item and pull it out. It no longer looked like a sock, but a torn up washcloth. If this solves your problem, I highly recommend using a mesh laundry bag to wash anything smaller than a washcloth. Socks (all socks, not just a baby's socks), thongs, etc have all gotten stuck in the soap despenser drain and in the water outlet drain filter. They are too torn to be used again, of course but it answers the age-old question of "where did all the matching socks go!"
What I recommend to anyone who has this washer to do their regular cleaning cycle. After you do this, check both drains, the grey rubber seal, etc for anything that may have gotten in here. If you use the mesh bags for anything smaller than a shirt and pants, you will find that the clogged draining problems will happen with less frequency.
Also, before doing expensive repairs, take an hour or two to search the web and see if you can figure out (from customers before you) how to fix these chronic problems. If there is still a problem you can't fix and HAVE to call a repairman, watch the repairman fix the problem so you know how to fix it next time. Not only that but you can tell us what the repairman did so those that have the problem after you, have a way to fix the "simple" fixes.

There is a rubber hose that connects dispenser housing to outer tub of washer. Disconnect hose at outer tub and fish out article of clothing that has wedged itself in there cuasing water to back up and pour out of dispenser. In the future use a linen bag for small articles of clothing such as underwear and socks.

The washer will not start the wash cycle when there's no enough water inside the tub. The washer will flash an error code if it has a display or light up a status indicator to indicate the fault code depending on the model number of the washer. Please specify the model number of the washer for more specific advice. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
Regarding the leak problem, a broken drain pump usually causes the problem; to check, remove the screws attaching the bottom of the lower front access panel to the cabinet. Once the screws are removed, slide the panel down then out to remove it from the cabinet. Fill the washer with water and locate the leaking part.
Also remove the top panel by remove the screws attaching it to the rear of the washer then slide it rearward and lift it off the washer. Check dispenser hoses for any leak during the fill cycle.
Specify the model number of the washer and let us know the source of the leak for further and specific advice.

Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.
Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.
Leave the door open once the cycle is complete to allow the inside of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer to ventilate and air dry.
Look closely at the gray seal of the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer's door opening. This seal can have a buildup of debris or detergent residue.
Spray the seal with an all-purpose appliance cleaner and scrub away any debris or residue with a cloth or scrubbing pad. Dry with a clean cloth.
Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.
Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.
Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.
