Question about Washing Machines

Why does the detergent drawer of our Asko W6021 refuse to open or close easily?

Opens the first centimetre or so then requires some force to open fully. Closing is also the same, the last centimetre is very reticent to close.

It probably needs cleaning. Best thing to do when you pull it out, is to release the conditoner tray at the sides, or find out how to remove it completely. It should come out for cleaning - you may find a build up of sludge at the back that is preventing it from opening and closing properly. Clean off using just water and a little vinegar and put back in. You should find that it opens and closes easily after that.

    Well it has something to do with the plastic. The runners in the machine could be broken that holds the drawer in but those are tested to last the life of the machine. It could be that if it has been slammed with brute force that the drawer is no longer able to move freely. There are ways around this but they are temporary like sliding soap down the sides so that the drawer moves more freely. If it has been slammed using brute force previously the runners on the drawer itself may be broken.

SOURCE: Detergent dispenser drawer stuck

You may have to remove the washer top (three phillips screws at the back, then push top back about two inches and lift it off) then drill a hole in the top of the plastic dispenser to allow you to use an object like a screwdriver to maneuver the offending part around so it will drop down and allow you to open the dispenser drawer. Use foil tape to seal hole if you don't want to buy a new dispenser. Clean out blue plastic dispenser parts so detergent will siphon out completely. Pushing down on the center tab at the back of the dispenser should allow you to take the dispenser drawer the remainder of the way out. In the future, make sure you do not use over 1 tablespoon of HE soap (and 1 teaspoon of fabric softner) max per load. Even less if you have 2x or more detergent.

SOURCE: detergent drawer will not open

The soap dispenser in my LG WM2277H front loading washer keeps getting stuck shut. I have tried wiggling it, jiggling it and yelling at it. Nothing works. I can not pry open the back as suggested and drill a hole. There has to be a solution! Please?

How can I open detergent drawer, opens about 20mm & won't come out any further


Pull the drawer out as far as it goes then lift it up and pull it out completely. It may be stacked due to detergent remainings.
So, you should clean the drawer with a soft brush under warm running water. Do not put the drawer into a dishwasher!
Replace the drawer by tilting it into position.
Hope it helps.

The detergent draw won't pull in and out easy. You've really got to 'pull' to get it open and 'push' really hard to make it close.


theres is probably soap inside the track where the drawer slides, just clean it out and you should be fine.
