I'd follow the hot water supply hose to the back of the washer and and then - after unplugging it from the power - begin check to make sure hot water is available to the hose by disconnecting it and aiming it into the washer - and turning the water on. If it flows, check for debris clogging the strainer screen at the input to the washer. Then if ok - check the hot water valve solenoid with an ohmmeter. Compare it to the value of the cold water solenoid valve and if not within 10 - 15% - replace it. If you can check for 120 volts to the hot water solenoid SAFELY - do so - otherwise, stop and call a pro.

    This is useful info only that I'm having trouble with a drinking water dispenser and not a washing machine as it came out. Thanks though.

    It would help a great deal if it wasn't under the "Question about Washing Machines" heading. Additionally, you might want to repost under a more accurte heading so that people familiar with them might be able to help you out.

SOURCE: LG Front Loading Washer overflows at detergent dispenser

you mean where you put the regular HE soap in? That slot is normal to overflow. The water carries the soap down (Lift the little doohickie up, it's removable for powder deterg.), and it carries it all the way to the tub...Unless i don't get it...but I'm reading the phrase "Its like the water will not go down to the tub.", and it makes me think the whole tray is overfilling with water..if this is the case, I can't help you, but filling over of the Main HE Soap tray is normal. (Just a little, if the whole thing starts filling uncontrollably, hit the power button.)

SOURCE: Fabric softener doesn't dispense

Fabric softener dispensers are notorious for getting all gummed up and clogged. Remove the dispenser cup and soak in some hot water to dissolve all residue. While you have the dispenser removed check under the dispenser cap in the agitator for gummy residue as well. Clean with hot water. There should also be an agitator seal cap under the dispenser. Make sure the cap and rubber o-ring are seated properly. Last of all, if the dispenser has a cone shaped cup inside, make sure it is inserted cone-side UP. The cup is designed to allow fabric softener to roll down the sides of it, NOT hold it. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Top Load Kenmore Elite Bleach Dispenser Leaking

I have this same problem today and did not need to take off the top panel or remove the front panel/housing. The bleach and frabric softener dispenser snaps right out and you can check the tubing and clamp from there. You will need to remove the top panel if you need to replace the tubing. In my case, there is a crack in the dispenser itself which has ruined several loads of laundry over the past year...now I realize it wasn't the clamp and hose, but the dispenser itself. Check them all while you are at it.

SOURCE: Whirlpool bleach dispenser not dispensing properly

It sounds like the bleach dispenser is clogged or has a crack in it. What we do, is when we bleach our clothes and I know that this is extra work, but we wait until the washing machine is full of water, then add the bleach directly to the wash.

Ld and sd on a kenmore washing machine


Liquid dispenser and softener dispenser are clogged. Pour some hot water into both dispenser tubs and try to run thru a small load. The hot water should loosen the clog. Try again if necessary. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Water is still in my liquid bleach dispenser after load is finished. is this normal?


If it is just water then it could be OK. Most companies use a water stream to flush the bleach and also the fabric softener out of the dispenser systems and into the washer tubs. Some water left over is probably normal as long as the bleach or fabric softener has dispensed.

LG front load washer is leaking a lot of water from the soap dispencer


Remove dispenser drawer by pulling out to it's stop, then pressing in tab at back to allow you to pull it free from machine. Look for a build up of fabric softener in the filler area. If that is clean, remove washer top by taking screws of out back side and sliding top back 2 inches and lifting it off. Remove rubber connector from dispenser area to top of tub and check for obstructions. (mouse nest?)

The softner dispenser will not empty. then has bad smell.


if this is a front load washer you need to raise the top and check all the dispenser hoses for clogged, hardened fabric softener. if you only wash in warm or cold water, the hoses will get built up with soap and fabric softener. you need to do at least one load of hot every month to keep the hoses cleaned out, the hot water disolves it better. as for the smell you can buy a product called AFRESH and follow the directions on the package and routinely use one tablet every month for the odor. if there is a lot of water in the tub, you may have something caught in the impeller of the drain pump. hope this helps.
