SOURCE: LEAKING DISPENSER DRAWER

Refer to your manual regarding the dispenser tray. You could try using a tooth brush to clean out dry detergent, which could be blocking the flow of water. You can take out tray to clean, ref manual.

SOURCE: Conditioner is not used in the wash cycle

I had the same problem with my Bosch Classixx 1200 Express.
It was fixed today & I now know what to do in the future if it happens. The water gets into the soap/ conditioner dispenser drawer via 2 pipes. One points to the main detergent compartment and the other to the pre-wash and conditioner compartments. The pipes become clogged with a type of mould. This meant that in my machine the water was bypassing the conditioner. I had already removed the drawer and cleaned it up and cleaned the jets above with an old tootbrush but it hadn't solved the problem. The repair guy used a cable tie (one of those that is quite firm & will lock) and pushed it up inside the bigger jets. This loosened the black gunge. Then ran water thru from start of the basic cycles and all is now OK

SOURCE: Frigidaire gltf2940e front loading washer - dispenser drawer magnet replacement

When you are looking at the drawer, the magnet stands upright on the far right side just inside the outer front casing about halfway down. There is a small plastic clip that holds it in place. You don't need to take anything apart to reinsert the magnet, just open the drawer, but it may be easier to see the location if you pull the drawer all the way out of the hole.

SOURCE: Fabric softener not draining

Remove the dispenser drawer by pushing down on the tab at the center back and pulling drawer out. Now, remove the top of the fabric softener compartment and the parts of the soap dispenser and clean them all out. An old toothbrush often helps. Reassemble and replace. They should siphon out now.

Why is the washing powder not washing away? insteard it stays in the drawer and clumps together.


It either needs to be thoroughly cleaned, or there is a blockage in the dispenser compartment.
Remove drawer and clean all parts, remove and poke with a piece of wire the little blue plastic piece, sometimes grey, this hopefully will solve the problem.

Water is leaking from soap dispenser only at beginning of cycle


Remove dispenser drawer, and check for soap blockage.
Locate and clean filter, check to see if there is one located behind bottom kick strip, if no filter there, then you will have to remove lower rear cover of washer, and locate and remove the large black hose on bottom of tub.
Remove filter and plastic ball,clean and replace.
Refit filter, ball and hose ,ensuring it is fitted correctly.
Test for leaks.
Plz ratev my solution.
Thanks.

WD 63


Remove dispenser drawer from m/c, and thoroughly clean it and all accessories.Clean all residual build up of undesolved powder and conditioner in drawer compartment..
If it still leaks, then remove top cover, locate large black hose at bottom of dispenser, and give it a good squeeze to clear any possible blockage in the hose itself..
If still no better, could be due to exceptionally high water preesure forcing the water out of the drawer.

Turn cold water valve down a little to reduce pressure.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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).
