SOURCE: Clothes are not clean How can I take washer aprt to clean soap dispenser???

Dear carolesergy,
Welcome to fixya

You sad,My clothes get dingier ever week from using my washer especially the towels. They are now Grey and not white

1.Here are some ideas and INFO!
2.How old is your MAH5500B washer and did you buy it new?
3.Do you use HE High Efficient detergent?
4.Do you ONLY put the proper amount of detergent directed to be used by the manufacturer?
5.Using to much detergent will degrade the seal and eventually destroy the bearings.
Which will cause oil to leak out on your clothes and sometimes make gray stains on them !
6.Is there tiny gray oily pieces in the wash and on clothes?
7.Look closely at your rubber seal around the opening. Is this worn or deteriorating away slowly due to bleach or detergent? Is it a gray or black rubber?

Please have patients and bear with me, with all these questions I propose to you here!
"
I am searching with your eyes for things I have seen in the past about this model"

Here are some reasons this may also happen!

How large of a load can I wash in my Maytag Neptune washer?
* The tub can be loaded completely full with dry, unfolded clothes. However, do not pack the tub tightly. If the load is heavily
soiled it is very important not to overload the washer.



My whites are not as white as I’d like.What can I do?
* Wash white loads using the cotton/sturdy fabric selection. Select the hot wash/cold rinse temperature setting and put 3/4
cup of chlorine bleach in the bleach dispenser. The bleach will be dispensed in the final minutes of the wash providing for
optimal whitening. Maytag recommends a hot water wash temperature of 120-140° F (49°- 60° C).

Also:
*The lint filter in side the machine may be clogging with dirty lint!
*Which means you needed service!

I hope one of these solutions is the reason!
Let me know how you do!

On the very back top of the drawer is a lock lever that you depress to relase the drawer. Push it down and pull drawer out. Clean and replace.

SOURCE: kenmore front load washer is leaking water from soap

We had a similar problem with water coming out of the soap dispenser when the washer was run. I assumed that it was a problem with the water draining as everyone else posted here. I took off the front panel, got rid of the junk and drained it. Although this was great, it did not solve the original problem. It turns out that there was a sock stuck in between where the water comes out of the soap dispenser and in to the main compartment. Pulled it out with a needle nose plier and good to go. Thanks to everyone for their input here.

SOURCE: We have a Kenmore frontloader pooring water from soap dispenser

You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Issues with leftover soap and water in soap dispenser when wash is done. Cleaned dispenser and still doing it!!! PLEASE HELP


Remove the soap drawer completely, and wash it in warm water. Clean the roof of the hole where the dispenser drawer is using a plastic pot brush and some hot water. There are holes where the water comes from and they get splashed with soap.

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 is leaking out the soap dispenser.


Remove the soap dispenser and clean it throughly, next check the tube from dispenser to the tub to be sure it is clear of blockage. Run the washer with hot water to clear any residual buildup that may be left in it.

Soap dispenser keeps filling with water after everyload. I have to empty after load. The dispenser is also growing mold.


You should clean the soap dispenser regularly by removing it from the washer.
Some units have a release clip but some just need to be pulled out firmly by hand.

Then give the tray a very good clean as no soap residue should be present. It sounds like the fabric conditioner cycle is filling the relevant tray section but unable to drain through blockage.

Should be pretty straight forward to remedy.

SOAP DISPENSING


The soap dispenser is intended for both liquid and powder detergents. If you have a problem with mildew, then you may need to clean it occasionally with bleach water.

We went through the whole "clean the soap dispenser" deal and results were the same. Exploratory surgery revealed that the Prewash hose (for lack of better term), which connects from the top of the drum housing to the right side of the dispenser drawer (facing the machine)was completely clogged with gunk. Especially strange since we don't prewash hardly anything, ever. The hose that connects the bottom of the detergent dispenser with the side of the drum housing did have a lot of buildup, but I do not believe it was the cause because this was only happening on the rinse cycle. I also found the flow meter was frozen up.
