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.

Water does not drain from dispenser into tub/drum fast enough


pull out the dispenser,check inside where the dispenser goes into,i found in two washers the white circle piece that's inside the cap to detergent,when water would go in the cap would block the fill tube,if you checked the dispenser and water flows through you have something blocking the fill tube,hopefully the washer and dryer are not stacked,you might have to take the top lid off to get at the fill tube or fill hose to clear it.good luck with your washer

Leaves detergent in despencer tray


Most of the time this is a dispenser housing issue. Remove the dispenser tray from washer and make sure it is cleaned very well. In the more serious clogs, you may need to clean the hose from the dispenser to the drum.
  1. Make sure the detergent dispenser drawer is opening. This issue occurs due to jammed soap dispenser. Dispenser Distribution System is located in the top left corner of the washer. The system consists of a motor that turns a cam gear. The Detergent Dispenser Assembly is located under the washer top. Begin by removing the washer top, console and front panel.
  2. Separate the water inlet and window washer tube from the boot. Pull the water inlet tube from the outlet connector of the detergent dispenser. NOTE: When reinstalling the water inlet tube, wet the water inlet gasket on the detergent dispenser with water only. Do not use any other lubricant. Align the tab on the water inlet tube with the indentation on the dispenser connector and slide the tube onto the detergent dispenser assembly.
  3. Remove the screw securing the front of the detergent dispenser assembly to the top front frame member.
  4. Disconnect the vent tube from the detergent dispenser assembly. Remove the screw securing the detergent dispenser assembly to the top left frame member. Slide the assembly back slightly and lift the assembly out.
  5. To remove the detergent dispenser motor assembly,disconnect the cam follower spring and lift the cam follower from the diverter cam and rotate the diverter cam clockwise to access the motor mounting screws. Check for all the connections to the dispenser motor or anything obstructing the dispenser drawer functioning.
  6. Pull the diverter out and clean it, including the shaft, spring, etc.

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 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.

Whirlpool washer overflows at detergent dispenser


Hello, I worked on a problem like this a few days ago. Your problem is going to be a blockage in the inlet to the drum. To fix this problem find the inlet pipe normally located above the door behid a flap of rubber..push your fingers up there to see if you can feel a blockage..If not your going to have to remove the lid of the machine to access the pipe that leads from the detergent drawer to the tub. Look at the rear top of the machine..You will see three screws....remove them and push back and lift the top panel (lid) now you should be able to access the pipe. Pull the pipe off and clean it out, i suspect you will find a sock blocking the pipe :) If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike

Water in the bleach dispenser


The bleach dispenser is a syphon system. When you put in the bleach , it fills the reservoir to a point just below the syphon point. Your bleach tray has a tube attached to it, with a loose cap around the tube that causes the bleach to be delivered to the washload when the water is added. Remove the cap over the tube in your bleach tray. You'll also note a similar arrangement for your softener dispenser. Clean both caps and tubes. Make sure that the caps fit properly back down over the tubes. The syphoning effect will work only up to the point that the circuit is broken by air. If your cap sits up too high, the syphon effect is broken early, leaving residue (water) in the dispenser.
Best regards, --W/D--
