Maytag front load washer leaking water from detergent dispenser

3 year old machine just started today. I cleaned the tray of caked on detergent,machine is level,turned the water valve down a little,cleaned the upper water holes with a tooth brush, water still flows out the front when machine goes into wash cycle. I noticed when I pulled  the tray out there is a drain that runs the water into the drum,could this be starting to stop up. Feels like there is a plastic sleeve in there. If this needs to be cleaned how do you get to it and is the other end connected to anything?

Re: maytag front load washer leaking water from detergent...

I have a whirlpool duet sport and it was leaking from the detergent despencer. Since the dryer sitting on top of the washer I didnt want to take the top off. I took the control panel off then took the front panel loose and let it hang a by the seal. I could then see the tube going from the detergent despencer to the tub. I unclamped the hose and wiggled it out of the lower hole. I found a sock in the tube. I removed the obstruction and reassembled the washer. Works fine, PS this advice is free other jackholes want 30 bucks. Have a great day and good luck you can do it!

Re: maytag front load washer leaking water from detergent...

The other end of the dispenser to outer drum hose only connects to the outer drum and if you remove the top cover of the machine, you will see it clearly. You can unclamp the hose from the bottom of the dispenser and feel inside the hose for any obstruction. Do not remove the hose from the outer drum. Pour some hot water down the hose and squeeze the hose from top to bottom to remove build up of detergent and softener on the inside walls of the hose.

How to fix leak from soap dispensor

I assume you have water coming out of the dispenser and running down the front of the machine. You probably have a build up of soap powder in the water inlet and it is restricting the flow and backing up.
Soap powder is only partially soluble in cold water and a residue of undissolved powder builds up over time, one of the reasons I use a liquid detergent. Remove the dispenser tray, it should pull out fairly easily with just a little resistance. Try and clear any blockages, hot water is best as it dissolves better. Clean the tray you have removed and re-assemble.

Water leaking out of soap dispenser

I have had this happen. I have taken the dispenser tray out and cleaned the area where the water and the detergent will flow into the washer at. This area had gotten some gunk build up, once I cleaned it, it has not leaked since. Now I just routinely look at this and make sure that it is clean. Hope this helps you.

Water leaking through soap dispenser drawer

OLDFIXER was exactly right ! I had water gushing out of my LIQUID detergent tray. I removed the tray by pushing down on the flexible tab at the back of the tray and when I had the tray out I discovered A LARGE AMOUNT OF DAMP powder detergent caked up on the inside. I removed it all and sprayed some hot water inside AND ITS COMPLETELY FIXED !!! GOD BLESS OLD FIXER.
