Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer
Hi, When a cycle is started the washer begins to fill. Instead of filling the drum water spills out of the front of the detergent dispenser under the drawer. I removed the drawer and watched the water go into the hole that I assume leads to the drum. The water quickly overflows and leaks out the front.
We had the same problem, It was a pair of sock stuck behind the seal in the drum blocking the water inlet to the drum. Like others we managed to get our fingers between the metal of the drum and the rubber seal near the detergent dispensor to remove the sock.

Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. This tube controls the water level. Another thing that could be the problem: Try to take the top of the machine off; there are three tubes coming into the dispenser box, these may hv come loose or something. Connect well.

Tmichaelh had it right, I had same problem-water leaking out the front of the detergent dispenser drawer. It was a pair of underwear stuck behind the bellow seal in the drum blocking the water inlet to the drum. You can just get your fingers between the metal of the drum and the rubber seal to feel the inlet which is below the detergent drawer.
