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.
