SOURCE: water in detergent dispenser
Mine just recently started doing this. The liquid soap tray has a removable white piece in it. The white piece creates a siphon that is supposed to cause the cup to drain. Mine recently got some weird white globs in it, possibly from detergent that froze. I'm thinking of putting the cup and white piece (separated) in the dishwasher on a sanitize cycle to try to remove this weird goop. (Feels like grease.)
The downside to this water being in the cup, in my washer, is that the water will spill over and instead of rolling back into the wash drum it will spill out the front of the washer. It makes a mess.
One solution I've been considering is to just use powdered detergent. Apparently it's better for the machine and the clothes?

Open dispenser drawer and push down on center plastic tab at back of dispenser to allow you to take dispenser out of machine. Take the plastic pieces off and clean them. (they need to be clean in order to siphon the bleach, softener, etc out. If there is water left in them, the water fill valve is OK. Cleaning should fix your problem. If you are using concentrated additives, try diluting them a bit with warm water when you add them to the dispenser. Remember, only one tablespoon (max) detergent, one teaspoon (max) fabric softener per load.

sounds like you have calcium build up, this happens alot with LG's. need to take out the dispenser and clean the calcium with industrial lime away, that only works good for me, but others will do, also use a sharp object, like a ice pick or finishing nail, to scrape off any left over hard residue.
the calcium will clog all the holes in the dispenser.
if this doesn't solve your problem, then there is one thing left
just email me and ill give you the other solution.....

Had the same problem here today, the softener dispenser blue plastic piece was loose jamming the whole dispenser tray, to resolve remove top cover, two screws on top rear, slide the cover towards the back, you will then see the detergent dispenser, press the right clips and pull it off slightly at the back; do not put too much pressure and try to remove the cover completely, just pry the plastic cover a bit then pull the detergent tray it should come right out.
