Re: Water overflow from detergent drawer
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.

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.
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.
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....
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)
Unplug the machine.
Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
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
Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
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)
Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
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.
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.
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.
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.
Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order
w would immagine that if you have water pouring out from your dispensor that something has found its way down into the the dispensor hose leading to the tub and is bl;ocking free passage of wwater. you can remove the top off the machine and check the dispensor to tub hose for possible debris/ sock/washcloth. ive even seen the pull tab from the top of the detergnet bottles in there
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.)
