Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
After we finish a load,the dish where you put your detergent is full of water.
My washer is about 1 year old. It started leaving water in all the the compartments,soap,bleach and softner. I tried everything also. Nothing seemed to work. I finally took the hoses off the back of the machine, and the cold water hose screen was clogged up going into the machine. I cleaned all the screens and haven't had that problem again. I think there wasn't enough water pressure to flush out the containers. I dont think its gravity or suction, its water pressure. unless you get a blast of water into these compartments, there will always be water left in these containers.

I have pulled out the entire dispenser compartment and cleaned it out but it keeps happening after every other time. Why would that happen? Also this is my replacement washer and less than one year old.

I switched to HE powder laundry detergent from HE liquid laundry detergent on the recommendation of a repairman. This has almost completely eliminated the problem of a leak drawer. The liquid soap leaves much more residue in the drawer cavity.
The liquid soap and additives dispensers work through gravity and syphoning (not by suction as a Home Depot sales person and a LG phone rep. told me).
The main culprit is the bleach dispenser. I does not always empty after the final rinse. Water is left in it. I think the plastic it is made of has too much surface tension (not smooth enough) to allow the syphon action to take place consistently. The other problem is when I fill the bleach dispenser, I have to not fill it to the recommended fill mark or it will syphon before I close the drawer.
Otherwise, I really like this machine. Hope this helps.

I have had this problem with 2 LG HE machines, the first machine was replaced due to this problem. I have well water which is very hard water. I clean the filter at the bottom of the machine weekly, clean the ports above the soap/bleach/fabric softener dispensers weekly and also shut off the water and clean the two water inlet filters on the machine where the hot/cold water hooks up weekly. Yes lots of fun but it doesn't always work. My belief is its just poor design.

Tips for a great answer:
The white residue is from the new environmentally safe soap. Check
your soap and see if it is phosphate free soap and that will be your issue. Also
either you have hard water or you're seeing either calcium or lime deposits. You
should use the jet dry for every load. There should never be any suds in a
dishwasher. Do not use liquid dish detergent for the dishwasher.Try running a
load without dishes, using vinegar, or a bottle of Dishwasher Magic. Another
possibility could be you're not getting enough water. The level should be close
to the heater(check your tech sheet to be sure). The water temp should be at
least 140 deg.F (no matter what the box says) Also, use a good brand of
detergent (Cascade) and be sure your wetting Agent dispenser is full. (jet
dry)You should not have to pre-wash your dishes..just scrape them well.The
detergent actually needs some dirty dishes to work properly..fats, protien,
etc. to make up 1 more chemical for the detergent.Another important step is to
run the hot water faucet before running your d/w to "purge" the cold
water out of the line.
