    Good idea - I've haven't cleaned the filter in the 3 years I've had the machine. Trouble - it's still full of water, and I need to drain it first.

    Also - why should this suddenly happen?

Try cleaning the filter located at the bottom of the machine in a small access door

    To drain the machine you will have to be able to release the drain hose from the drain pipework.Get a bucket and lower the hose into the bucket. this will dain the machine. Do not have the machine powered while doing this.

Lots of water pouring out on to the floor from the laundry soap dispenser in my front loader and doesn't say any error and when i start it pours out


Disconnect first the mains, power plug off the wall. You could have a clog in your soap drawer; pull the dispenser drawer completely out. There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer to remove. Clean the soap drawer with an old tooth brush. The usual block could be old soap, softener, etc. (you could also be using too much soap powder). I usually use just above 125ml (my measure cup says ml, I use front loader powder for the 5.5kg load) The wash is very gud. 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. Next could be one of hoses has become loose, should be re-fixed. Examine by removing top of the front loader; this will give you a gud view of the pipes.If helped, click.

My new LG washer always has water in the soap dispenser, bleach dispenser, and fabric softener dispenser after the cycle has finished. Is this normal?


Mine too!! Very annoying, especially since the water then drains down onto to floor and has actually made the door hinges stiff! I just use powdered bleach now.

Water leak from front powder/conditioner drawer.


Completely remove the dispenser unit. look inside the recess you have just taken the dispenser drawer from and look up. You will find this is covered in muck. Clean it with an old toothbrush or something but do not use too mush pressure. This should solve your problem. If not then you will need to replace the dispenser unit completely

Grasp the drawer firmly, and pull out until it reaches its stop, then press the plastic lever down in the middle of the drawer at the rear, and pull the drawer out.

Hello farijl,
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, Water gushing from powder dispenser drawer. I have been told to take out drawer and put to one side. Looking into drawer space at back on right hand side there is a hole to be unlocked. It is so scaled up I cannot see hole. Can you help me or do you have an illustration fo what I am supposed to be looking at and unblocking ? Hope you can help soon. Floor is flooding every wash and cannot afford to get man out.

The detergent dispenser
will not close properly or is
collecting water?

1. Check the drawer is properly aligned.
2. Clean the dispenser drawer (see Care and Maintenance).

Water doesn't go to the drum it leaks all over the floor instead! seems to be coming out the draw


Sounds like you have a hole in a pipe, or loose pipe.
Or the drawer could be blocked with washing powder and need cleaning out. The top cover comes off the machine on a lot of models and gives you access to the water inlet in to the drawer. If you can do it yourself check it. The drawer it'self may come out for cleaning, sometimes by pushing a little lever inside the drawer, or it may pull out at a bit of an angle.
If you have no one to take a look at it then you will have to get an engineer.

Water leaking (Aquarius 1200)


don't think using quick wash should make a difference as water intake is the same take drawer out and wash thoroughly especially the rinse compartment. if gunged up the water overflows the compartment and leaks down the front. otherwise, you may have a blockage in the hose from the drawer to the tub. take top off, remove this hose and clean disconnect from mains when you do this
