Depends on make and model for exact answer. Normally a pull draw along front edge of machine at top next to controls. This draw may have 3 compartments, the smallest is for fabric conditioner / softener, the largest is for main wash cycle and the other is for pre wash cycles. I personally use soap that goes into the drum of the machine with the clorthes to be washed. Hope this helps
I had the same problem with Zanussi machine, and tried everything. The solution came, not from Zanussi but from Leverhulme advice centre. The reason was that the detergent product had upgraded to extra concentrated. Having used the detergent for years I neglected to read the instructions!
I don't know how you are administering the soap powder to the machine..but for one, its recommended that you use detergent thats made exclusively for the front loader washer, usually says "he" on the front of the LIQUID detergent, they recommend that you use liquid detergent on top of that, BUT if you have to use regular powder detergent it must be put inside the tub and NOT the pull out detergent drawer. The reason why they want you to use liquid is because the powder detergent is not concentrated and when you use it, it lathers up alot and its harder for the front loader machine to clean out the clothes and I was told that they (sales agents) have heard of soap suds and bubble floods coming from the machine due to either using the powder detergent or using too much. Hope that this helps!!
Sometimes the drawer gets blocked with congealed fabric conditioner and or old soap powder, try removing the drawer and giving it a good wash. An old toothbrush is useful to get in the small areas. To remove the drawer: Pull the drawer out as far as possible, there is a small depression on the left hand side at the top of the drawer, about the size of a fingertip press the depression to release the drawer, and pull the drawer out. To relocate, line the drawer up, and place the long thin piece of plastic on the left hand side in the corresponding slot in the top of the drawer opening, you might have to kneel down to see it and slide the drawer in, you might have to press the depression again to pushe it home.
most soap drawers have a little springy thing you press to allow it to come out, this stops it getting pulled all the way out by mistake, pull the drawer out as far as it will go gently till it stops then look for something that will move on the top where the soap goes, try pressing it, sometimes it is a different colour, if you found this the drawer will slide out when you press this bit,
if there is nothing that moves or nothing to press then give the drawer a little bit extra force ( a short sharp tug) and it should just slide out that last little bit, to put it back just line it up with the slides and push gently back into place, it shouldn't be forced too hard to do this, it should just slide back

It could be a water inlet valve that is at fault. Are the hot and cold supplies turned on? Try opening the powder draw very slightly when the machine is filling with water, if no water in powder draw, chances are that the inlet valve is at fault, situated on the inside of machine where the filler pipes connect. Unplug machine from power supply before checking the inlet valves with a resistance meter, making sure to disconnect wires from one terminal to avoid false readings. Tom.
