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.

Front load duet washer is spewing water out of soap dispenser.


The water flow is restricted into the tub by an obstruction ie sock, lint.
Take the top off and the drawer out. The black hose underneath the dispenser that leads to the tub has something caught at the end. Pull the hose off where it enters the tub and examine, you will find the blockage there.

Our whirlpool is leaking from the bottom during


The only way to determine where the leak is coming from is to remove the lower kick panel directly below the door. Remove the panel by removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. If you prop the front feet up this will give you better access (a 2 x 4 works well).

With the panel removed inspect the rubber door bellow. If the front counterweight (gray concrete block on the front of the tub) is wet, the bellow is leaking. Pull the rubber folds back and look for any rips or tears. If the bellow requires replacing, or if you need to simply tighten the clamps, the following link will explain how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385211-replacing_door_bellow_whirlpool_duet

NOTE: Check the plastic dispenser hose on the left hand side of the bellow to ensure it is inserted all the way through the rubber to the flange joint. Sometimes this dispenser hose will slip behind the bellow and allow water to seep inside the cabinet of the washer.

Check the drain pump to ensure the filter cap is secure and not leaking. The pump is in the front directly below the wash tub. If the pump IS leaking, make sure the filter cap is tight and all hose clamps are snug. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401845-replacing_drain_pump_whirlpool_duet

Check all hoses the run from the wash tub to the pump, and from the pump to the standpipe at the wall for any signs of cracks or tears.

If the leak is coming from the center portion under the tub, the tub seal is breached and needs to be replaced. This is not an easy repair and will require some extensive disassembly to repair. (Cross that hurdle when the time comes).

Any replacement parts you may need can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. You can use any web source you like, but these I have found, offer great service with competitive pricing. Shop all of them for the best prices. Hopefully you won't need any parts.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100L pours water out of the soap dispenser dra


probable cause is there is an article of clothing that is stuck between the outer and inner tubs, in the area where the dispenser water and detergent enter the machine. you can run your hand around the rubber boot and you might be able to remove the article, it will be in the upper left part of the machine. if nothing can be found than you have a plugged up dispenser hose.
