Detergent doesn't dispense from the drawer


Remove the drawer and clean it thoroughly, also clean the drawer area of any detergent residue. Check that there is water flow into the drawer from the inlet nozzles above it.
Make sure you are putting the detergent in the correct drawer compartment. If it still persists further investigation of the feed in and out pipes will be required..

Jenny what do you mean by 'flow right out of the compartment'. IF the detergent flows right into the machine as you pour, it ok.

I have a front loading Kenmore washer and when i put liquid detergent and fabric softener, the liquid flows into the machine - should the detergent and fabric softerner remain in their compartements until...


Hello,
Yes the detergent and softener will stay in the dispenser drawer until the correct time for them to be dispensed. The detergent is dispensed during the main wash cycle and the softener will not dispense until the rinse cycle

A white stain or powdery residue remains after washing dark colors


This often occurs as a result of overloading the washer. If a washer is overloaded the water cant get in between all of the clothes to thoroughly rinse them out. That will cause streaks of white (which is most likely the unrinsed detergent).
Also, make sure you are using the correct water level setting for the load size.
If a washer is overloaded continuously it will cause premature parts failure.
Other cuases can be related to water hardness and the type of detergent you are using.
Try using a detergent with smaller granules or even a liquid detergent.
Make sure you are not using to much detergent for the load.
One other thing, turn the water off to the washer, remove the hoses from the back of the washer and check the screens that they are not corroded, if they are replace them. You can get these at Ace hardware, lowes and maybe even wal-mart. Corroded screen will impede water flow hense not allowing a good water flow during rinse cycle.

I have a LG WM2016CW washing machine and recently I found the detergent leaks from the main wash detergent compartment. I notices the liquid drops below the compartment on the front surface. Please advise...


If no holes are in the detergent dispenser which shouldn't be hard to see if any exist then I would assume that you may be adding too much detergent. Also remove the detergent compartment and make sure there is no build up anywhere that may be blocking the flow of the detergent.

My am-14 is eating the detergent. It use to last a month now less than one week. Is there a soleniod valve thatisn't closing?


Hello,
The over consumption of detergent could be caused by a couple of things. If the detergent is dispensed by an external chemical pump, the detergent probe may not be working correctly. The probe will cause the pump to dispense too much chemical if it is dirty or has hard water build up on it. You can check the probe and clean it of any debris. The probe is located in the bottom of the wash tank. Most chemical suppliers take care of these sorts of issues at no cost to the customer. If your rinse solenoid is not closing properly, this could cause the detergent to flow down the standpipe (overflow drain). This would make the chemical pump dispense detergent more often then usual. An easy way to check if your rinse soleniod is stuck open is to look at your rinse arms if water is flowing out of them and doesn't stop this would mean your solenoid is in need of repair.
Kind Regards

LG WM2487 front load washer spews suds out of port on rear.


You are likely using too much detergent or the detergent is not high-efficiency detergent. Change detergents and/or lower amount and this problem should go away.

The water port on the back allows air inside the tub to escape. However, if the wrong type or quantity of detergent are used, excess suds will flow from this port.

B302 - unable to start detergent flowing - How should it work?


It will only pick up detergent if you use a low pressure detergent nozzle - or no nozzle at all. It also takes a while for the detergent to get to the nozzle.
