Water overflow from detergent drawer

LG WM-3677HW

Water overflow from detergent drawer, removed drawer, water standing in sump, removed top of machine and squeezed hose leading to tub, water suddenly drained.

Question is: Is it common for the blue, dome shaped check valve to get stuck in the black hose? Is there some sort of lubrication needed on the check valve shaft?

    The black rubber tube had VERY LITTLE detergent build-up, just a slight whitish coating at the mouth of the tube, I was able to rub it off easily.
    I still have the question: Does the check valve need some sort of lubrication?

  • rlraaf Apr 14, 2009

    Thanks for trying, but these answers are very general and conflicting to boot.

    I need someone who has experience with this specific machine, I can figure out general solutions myself.

    Please read the request carefully.
    Is THIS MACHINE known for having this valve stick shut? Lube or no lube? If lube is required BY THE MANUFACTURER, what specific type?

This is quite common issue with all washing machine not only LG, and there is no lubrication need as far as i know.
Remove dispencer and conditioner syphon assembly and clean up the little tube.
That should make it work fine.

Let me know if you need more help..
Kindly rate the answer. Thanks kevin

This is a general problem and occurs in many washing machines in course of time. You can try cleaning with caustic soda, there is a chance that it will prevent further clogging of the pipes.

    I recommend that you don't go for any lubrication. It is the best that you replace them in the cases where they get stuck.

Maytag 5000 series washer leaking.Removed front access panel ,saw water is trickling from dispenser tray area. Pulled dispenser drawer,cleaned/inspected with nothing really standing out as a problem.


Verify that that the hoses from the dispenser tray to the tub are not clogged. Detergents and fabric softeners can build up inside the hoses and cause partial or complete clogs that will cause the dispenser trays to overflow and thus leak. This is a common problem.

Error fe


FE means overflow condition. That means sand or trash has gotten into the tube going from tub to water level switch. So find that hose and blow it out. Remove the standing water and retry.

Significant water leaks through the bottom on the front side as soon as cycle starts. Already cleaned out the filter and hose from bottom right corner. Any suggestions? LG Model WM0532HW


Check that the door seal hasn't got a split or hole in it. Check between the bowl and the front panel. The water must be coming from somewhere. could be a hole in the outer drum itself or it could be the detergent drawer overflowing.... As a last resort... Carefully take off the top by unscrewing the screws at the rear, bump the top panel back to unclip it and VERY carefully look while the machine fills. DO NOT TOUCH as there is bare wiring...Remember water and electricity make a shocking combination!!! ....Nomess

Are you sure it is coming from the detergent drawer? It could be from your inlet water valves. They are very easy to see. Two screws on the rear of the machine will let you slide the top back and expose the componets.

As the washer is filling with water, it overflows out of the dispenser area. it appears that the water is not getting into the machine quick enough as the dispenser fills with water.


hi there......this problem is usually caused by a build up of detergent in the hose leading from the soa disenser into the wash tub....remove the soap dispenser....check for accumulated detergent under the drawer....and in the top of the fill hose....easy removed with a little patience and warm water....

Lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine


I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order

Water gushes out dispenser


Something has gotten into the fill tube hose of the tub.  You will need to pull the drawer out and look down in the dispenser assembly to see if there is something blocking the hose.

LG Front Loading Washer overflows at detergent dispenser


you mean where you put the regular HE soap in? That slot is normal to overflow. The water carries the soap down (Lift the little doohickie up, it's removable for powder deterg.), and it carries it all the way to the tub...Unless i don't get it...but I'm reading the phrase "Its like the water will not go down to the tub.", and it makes me think the whole tray is overfilling with water..if this is the case, I can't help you, but filling over of the Main HE Soap tray is normal. (Just a little, if the whole thing starts filling uncontrollably, hit the power button.)
