Opening the top of front load LG washer

My detergent "holder" is stuck and will not open. Does anyone know how to open the top of the front load washers? I suspect that there is one of the compartments out of place just a little.

Re: Opening the top of front load LG washer

To get your lid of the washer there are 2/3 screws at the back right under the lip of the lid once you have taken the lid of u will see the top of the soap drawer u can sometimes get into these by undoing the clips on either side of the soap drawer if u cant do it that way only other way is to make sure your soap drawer is closed properly and hit it hard at the front it should dislodge more than likely your conditioner drawer

Re: Opening the top of front load LG washer

Upon taking the top of washer off, it exposes the liquid dispenser. There are three snap clips on the right side as you look at it from the front. Unsnap and lift slightly on the dispenser lid. This should provide the clearance you need to open the drawer. Examine the blue covers for the fabric softener and bleach. You will see scrape marks where it has been rubbing on the the top cover when closing and opening. Using a soldering iron or an abrasive, wear down the sharp edges that are catching...This solved the problem for me.. ( :

Lg tromm washer leaks from detergent drawer

my washer also was leaking from the dispenser and I had a cap from one of the detergent bottles stuck in the inlet hose. Don't know how it got in there but glad I found it so if your washer leaks from the soap tray it could be a cap from your detergent bottle stuck in there.

Lost manual to LG washing machine WF-T502c Fuzzy Logic. Just want to know where detergent and softener go?

I do not know this model. However, on other top load LG washers, the powdered detergent goes in a box at the back (top) of the washer, and the fabric softener when diluted gets poured into a spot near the left side of the top of the washer. (The bleach goes near the front of the washer.) For front-loading washers, the detergent and fabric softener are poured into the detergent drawer. The largest compartment is for detergent (wash cycle) and is usually on the left. The smallest compartment is for fabric softener.

Manuals for most LG appliances are available at their site. Start at . The manual is in a DjVu format.
A partial manual is also available here: . You will need to review the washer or enter a code.

I hope this helps.

The dispenser door is stuck in the closed position. No matter how much I try to jiggle it open the door will not slide out. How do I get the door to open without breaking something?

Hi stuwstark, you could try running a quick wash cyle without any clothes in the tub once cycle is activated you will hear water flowing through the dispencer holder from there you can try riggling the dispencer to see if it will loosen up, in some cases the dispencer holder can become stuck due to dry soap powder clogging up the sliding rails also the dispencer holder can become stuck due to the liquid detergent box "insert" becoming loose and jamming it self up against the top casing of the dispencer holder so by applying the cycle when the water flushes thru the holder could ease the hard powder or could float the insert making it easier to open,try it and see how you go, thumbs up if it helps thanks.

Detergent dispenser stuck

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.

Detergent drawer will not open

Here's a possible solution: Remove the two screws on the bottom side of the plastic clips on the back of the washer (leaving the clips attached to the washer's top), then use the palms of your hands to sharply push the top back about an inch and a half and lift the top off the machine. Now, if you can see enough through the translucent plastic to tell where the hang up is, you can drill a small hole in the top of it to allow you to push that part down so the drawer will open. Then, use foil duct tape to seal the hole.

Laundry Detergent not being added

You will need to have a qualified LG technician come and diagnose this problem.  It sounds like a water valve is not opening up.

Problems with LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

It is a rare problem but I've seen it happen.  The only way to resolve this issue immediately is to remove the top of the washer to gain access to the dispenser.  The dispenser can be disassembled by unsnapping the top section where the hoses are connected.  Once the top section is lifted, you can safely pull the drawer out.  Not sure what happened but more than likely the water dispenser has warped downward causing it to jam the drawer.  Recommend replacing the dispenser to resolve this problem.

Suds leaking from back of washer near top

Suds are not supposed to leak from the top; means you are not using the right detergent. Use front loading powders. You can open up the top during next wash to locate where the leak is coming from (after changing powder). I understand suds appear in the window during spin....but leak? Caution when machine works with top open!
