SOURCE: water overflows from the soap dispenser drawer

Hello, the problem here is you have a blockage between the soap dispenser and the tub, remove the top of the machine, Normally 3 screws at the back lip of the machine. Now you have access to the soap dispenser. There is a pipe that runs from the dispenser to the tub, remove this pipe and inside you will most likely find a sock or similar item of clothing. Put everything back together and you are all set. Good Luck! Mike

Softner is dispensed in Wash cycle


in the top of your soap draw compartment is a lever that switches the water jets over ( for instance on the main wash the jet arm is directed in the main wash compartment which will take away your main wash powder then it moves the jet are to the sofner compartment on the final rinse ) the jet arm somtimes jams and needs cleaning and the small holes above your draw compartments clog with lime build up the thing to do is take out your draw clean the inside at the top where the holes are and take the top off your machine there are two screws at the back top you will see the little ark on your soap draw it will have a return spring on it gently move it from side to side this will clear any obstuction make sure that it will spring back clean any line around the arm ( make sure you switch unplug your machine before you remove the top)

After each wash the softener drawer full of water


This is quite normal. Unlike the soap drawer, which is an open ended slot where the liquid detergent candrain out or powder be washed out, the softner compartment is a small reservoir that has a raised tube inside it. It relies on water coming into the reservoir and washing the softner upwards, beyond the level of the raised tube, where it then washes down into the machine. Because of the way that this works, it's not uncommon for the water that washed out the softner to remain, filling the reservoir afterwards. Since the softner is more dense than the water, when you refil, the water will be pushed out of the raised tube by the new softner you put in.

This said, if you are noticing more than there used to be, it is possible that there is a slight blockage in the tube. You may want to lift the cover that goes over the conditioner compartment and make sure the tube is free of any blockages or residual congealed conditioner.

Usually, there is a clip at the rear of the soap drawer. Pull the drawer out to its fullest extent, depress the clip and this will allow you to take the drawer all the way out. Then you can clean the entire drawer with ease. Some models have no clip and by putting slight downward pressure on the draw and giving a sharp tug when it is fully pulled out will allow you to remove it - Just use some common sense here, if it doesn't appear to want to come free, don't force it. Come bac here, drop a note on the thread and I will provide some more detailled help :-)

Indesit WIE147 leaking from soap dispenser


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.

Dispenser tray removal


hi, nikoltheis! i'm not sure if we have exactly the same model, but it should be pretty close. here's what my user's manual says:

Detergent and fabric softner may build up in the dispenser drawer. Residue should be removed once or twice a month

- Remove the drawer by first sliding the safety latch to the right, then pulling the drawer out until it stops.

- Reach back into the left rear corner or the drawer cavity and press down firmly on the lock tab (left rear portion of the drawer). Pull out the drawer.

- Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softner compartments.

- Rinse the drawer and inserts with hot tap water to remove traces of accumulated powders and liquids. Large amounts of fabric softner residue may indicate improper dilution or that more frequent cleaning is required.

- To clean the drawer opening (the empty area left behind when you remove the drawer) use a small brush to clean the recess. Remove all the residue from the upper and lower parts of the recess. (The picture shows this being done with a tooth brush.)

- Replace the insert pressing "X" to lock it in place. Return the dispenser drawer.

Good luck!

take the soap dispenser drawer out and clean the drawer and the underneath the drawer, then clean the inside of the machine where the drawer fits into to. It could be caused by a build up of soap.
