Try taking the pipe off and try clearing the blockage by runing the hot tap down it quite fast.

I have a Whirlpool Duet Sport, today when I put a load in I noticed that while filling the washer started to leak water from where you put the detergent and softner in. I took out the drawer and cleaned...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is a common problem with many machines.
Sorry but I suspect that it is STILL the conditioner/softener tray which is causing water to overflow from the drawer!
Remove the complete drawer again and over the softener part will normally be some sort of cover which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. This is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the softener tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
I suspect this is your problem and solution!
Good luck,
John C

Auto defrost works fine except for water accumlating in the bottom of unit under the bottom trays instead of in the water tray by the compressor.

There is a leak or damage of the pipe leading from the evaporator downwards.The defrosted water is leaking out of the tubing to the bottom,replace this tubing or check the leak on the collecting tray under the evaporator.

Water is pouring out of my dispenser drawer

I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.

Water leaks from my detergent dispenser from my front loader washing machine?

This is usually indicative of soemthing blocking the flow of water out of the soap tray, down the connecting pipe and in to the drum chamber.
The soap tray doesnt have any seals as water should just flow into the tray, wash out the soap / fabric softner, and then flow out the back of the tray and down the connecting pipe. When working correctly, there is no pressure or water back-up to cause the water to reach the front of the soap tray.

Take out the tray - your machine user manual will show you how, and check both the tray itself and the "hole" it slots in to for either a build up of solidified soap powder, or some other foreign object. If still leaking, remove the tray again and try to get your hand (a woman's or teenager's hand being smaller is best) down the large oulet at the back of the "hole" the tray slots in to to feel for a blockage.
Do you have young children ? A washing machine soap tray is a great place to hide things !

Occasionally, if the smaller pipes that deliver hot and cold water to the tray come adrift, this can spray water at the front of the machine. This water then has only one real way out - via the soap tray "hole". Most often this will be the cold water pipe as this has higher water pressure to cope with. The only way to check this is to take the top of the machine off.

If after all of the above it still leaks, you'll either need to dismantle the machine enough to see the back of the soap tray "hole", connecting pipe and drum chamber for a better look for problems, or call an engineer.

I have a front loader WFS1071AW 7.5kg and it leaks loads of water and suds from under the detergent tray when filling. What is wrong with it???

The hose down from the back of the dispenser to the drum is blocked.

Take out the soap drawer and use a babys feeding bottle brush to clean out the pipe

Either that or take off the top of the machine (Normally two screws on the back of the top panel)

Then remove the pipe and clean it you may need a pair of Corbin Clip pliers to do so , at a push use Mole Grips

Refrigerator leaking water on floor under it!

The leak is most likely coming from the defrost tray below the evaporator coils. A piece of ice or something is preventing the water from draining to the pan below your refrigerator. Unplug and remove the back panel inside the freezer. Any blockage from that tray will cause the water to pool out into the freezer or fresh food section. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Tray that holds fabric softner does not drain

I have had three sepaerate service calls and one independant analysis about this problem. For the whirlpool duet washer - this is a design flaw - nothing else - please notice that when you take the detergent tray completely out (and turn it upside down) a piece of plastic falls out but even if you put it back correctly the water only flows out into the washer - either washing everything away or leaving it behind - I have been told there is no fix.
