The detergent compartments for bleach, softener, and liquid are usually siphon activated. Remove the dispenser drawer by pulling it out all the way and depressing the release tab. Remove the compartment siphon caps and check that all parts are clean and free of debris, gunk, or grime. If the problem is still present, low rinse water pressure can be a likely cause preventing the siphon from working properly. You can manually activate the siphon by re installing all caps in the drawer, hold the detergent drawer over the kitchen sink, and pour a glass of water into each compartment till it overflows, wait to see if the respectively filled compartment then drains all but approx 1 teaspoon from it's self. If so your dispenser is fine. If the cap on the drain tube is the one at the bottom behind the access door that you are trying to remove, you should only do this if there is a need such as the unit not draining the water completely from inside the basket of cloths, or if you receive a long drain error.

Inside the dispenser drawer, at the bottom there is a tab that you can push down to remove the dispenser drawer. Remove the drawer and check if the dispenser holes are clogged, this is a common cause.

SOURCE: Water in Fabric Softener Compartment

As for the softener compartment, powder tends to overflow and block the three drain holes. It needs removing and thoroughly cleaning out, i use cotton buds and lots of hot water.

SOURCE: Detergent dispenser is filled with water after wash is completed.

The water is left there because the syphon action is not working in the dispenser, what you need to do is to remove the dispenser drawer completely and thoroughly clean the conditioner compartment, poking any holes or tube, particularly the syphon tube with a piece of flexible wire or similar to ensure it is completely unblocked.
. to test, fill the conditioner compartment with water, and it should slowly empty itself, if it does not, then it is still blocked.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.

SOURCE: Indesit WIA102 keeps draining, even when washing

Try lifting the drain outlet higher than it is, if it is too low the water will syphon out as it is filling, there by causing the problem you are experiencing, if that does not solve the prob, then it sounds like the pump is on all the time, this being the case, then it would appear that it has a faulty programmer.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Fabric Softener Does Not Drain


25569074-ineink0kisfnom0atbkujjcx-3-0.jpg
compartment 1: Detergent for pre-wash
(powder)

Before pouring in the detergent, make sure that extra compartment 4 has been removed.

compartment 2: Detergent for the wash cycle
(powder or liquid)

Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately prior to the wash cycle start.

compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener should not overflow from the grid.

extra compartment 4: Bleach
! Do not use Hand Wash Detergent because it may form too much foam.

Cleaning the detergent dispenser
Remove the dispenser by raising it and pulling it out (see figure).
Wash it under running water; this operation should be repeated
frequently.

The washing machine keeps blinking sud what does this mean? It won't finish the cycle.. it is a kenmore front loader HE 5t


Either you have too much of the correct detergent in there or the wrong detergent in there. Here are a few of the errors:
1)Water fill problem: water took more than 10 minutes to fill to desired level sometimes indicated as a LF/IE or long fill/inlet error. Water valve screens clogged, hoses kinked, low water pressure, unpaid water bill. Check hose, clean screens.
2)Excessive vibration: noisey,roar, knocking noises. Bad damper,bearing or broken trunion. no error code
3)Dispenser drawer open/detergent in wrong compartment: washer will not operate with drawer open or cleaning products in wrong compartment.
4)Washer won't drain: clogged pump/filter, slow or clogged drain usually indicated as a LD/DE, if a code is given (long drain/drain error) Clear pump of objects
5)Drum overfilled: usually caused by sediment in the water level pressure sensing tube going up to the main control.Find it and blow out the sediment, re-secure pump out water and retry.
6)Door open, Door not latched, clothes/objects keeping door from completly closing. Tighten door latch, add washers if nessesary to make good contact and close door tighter in case of leaks.
7)Cold water does not enter washer: hoses connected backwards. Oops.
8)Oversudsing: Wrong Detergent, turbidity monitors pick up particles in the water and judge soil content then the washer allows for extra time to wash the clothes, if the wrong detergent is in there the machine thinks that is too much and declares a suds error. Remove detergent, retry
9)Locked motor: error LE,loose connection,broken wire/hallsensor, motor overheated/failed.
10)Water heating error, hE, the thermister/heater is out.

Water leaking from deyergant compartment


Make sure these isn't any foreign objects in the tube that leads into the drum from the detergent tray.

Remove the top of the unit. 2 screws in the back. Top left and top right and slide the top off. Look under the tray and locate the tube and feel around. You may have to remove the tube to get a better look.

Water begins to drain into the detergent drawer but does not drain into drum fast enough so the drawer area begins to fill and then begins to spill out of the drawer area all over the floor. If I press...


remove the drain pump and check out.
This is inevitably caused by a blockage. The small fabric conditioner compartment in the soap dispenser drawer has a removable plastic cap. This cap fits on the top of a tube which has a hole running through it where the water should siphon through.

When the time comes for the fabric conditioner to be released, cold water enters the small compartment and just washes the conditioner over the top and down the dispenser to the tub. When the water stops flowing, all that is left is the clear water. This water should siphon up the inside of the cap and down the tube.

This tube often gets blocked with the conditioner and if you remove the dispenser drawer and take off the cap you can give the whole thing a good clean out. If the cap is missing, the siphoning will not occur.

To test the function, hold the soap drawer under the tap and allow the water to fill the fabric compartment to overflowing. When you turn off the tap, the remaining water should slowly siphon out of the hole under the cap.

its the problem in the pump and something is getting blocked in the pump so water is not getting out.

  1. Unplug the washer. Remove the three screws along the bottom of the toe panel and pull the panel forward to remove it.
  2. Put your bucket or towels under the drain pump. Open the pump slowly so the water doesn't all spill out at once. If you have a wet/dry vacuum, you can connect it to the drain hose to remove the water from the washer before opening the pump.
  3. Open the door covering the pump wiring and disconnect the wiring.
  4. Remove the two drain lines from the pump.
  5. Remove the screw that attaches the pump to the washer frame and pull out the pump.
  6. if the pump is leaky or cracked it needs replacement.

FUll of Bubbles and won't drain


That is the filter compartment that you accessed. I believe ( and you can verify ) that there is a short hose with a cap next to that filter that you can extend to control the drain off into a container or two. If you haven't cleaned the filter for a long time, there is a good chance that it is blocked up with junk that limits the system from draining properly. I had that problem myself. Also, these front loaders use HE detergent and Ihad been filling the detergent cup up to the mark but you because these use very little water during the wash cycle I was advised to use only a few drops... Yes drops.. and I have been and clothes come out just as clean. maybe even a bit less if you buy X2 or X3 HE detergent. Hope my bad experience with this helps you...

Washer Leaks from Detergent Compartment


Two things might be wrong with this unit.  One problem is there is a blockage inside the hose that sends water into drum.  Make sure that's clear.  The other problem is the dispenser assembly may have a leaking problem and will spray water at an angle that will cause it to leak through the dispenser drawer.  My recommendation is to have the dispenser assembly inspected and possibly replaced.
