Re: leaking detergent and fabric softner

Possible your inlet into the tub from the detergent drawer is clogged; try pulling the drawer out gently to clean out. Or use a tooth brush. If you are good at 'do it yourself ' jobs you could open up the top of the machine to see what the problem is. If the machine is under warranty, call the dealer.

The fabric softner compartment of my whirlpool duet washer is completely full of water

Mine is doing the same. For over 2 months now I've been adding fabric softner to the detergent compartment but I broke down and called a repairman to come tomorrow... at a ridiculous repair rate. My washer is less than 3 years old and this will be the 3rd major problem that needed to be fixed. I've seen a lot of people post the same problem - some say all 3 compartments won't drain.

Detergent reservoir won't drain after cycle finished. Water stays in it.

hopefully your using the HE type detergent an fabric softner, an not using but a teaspoon full each. the machine will detect if there is any product left in depenser. an too there will be some water left to keep lines an seals mosit. to keep from drying out so thats normal.

Fabric softener dispensing before wash begins

I was having the same problem. Repair man replaced VALVE AW
He told me it is from the sedement in your water. If you have a water softner, it may not be the problem, unless it is not working properly. Sounds strange, but problem is fixed.

Leaking detergent

Sounds like the back of the soap drawer or inlet hose is partially blocked. Check whether junior has posted a toy car in the drawer

It obviously is backed up or splashed in from the wash. And if it is just water why worry about it.

Fabric softner leakage

By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the detergent/softner drawer. Look for the place the water leaks from. Good luck !!
