Hi Esther, have you recently removed the drawer to clean and put it back in? Does the display show any specific error (that would be something like E+a number)?

Testimonial: "No, it is a possiblilty something inside the tray was sticking up , I am not sure. Now it will not open. I try to pull it out . It comes out maybe a cm or two then stops."

I have a Samsung Silver Care front loader washing machine. When I turn it on water comes out the detergent dispenser drawer and a little oozes out of the main front door. Any ideas? Thanks, Kelly

Remove the dispensing tray (look for an under side spring clip or release) and check the fluid exit point--the machine washes the detergent into the drum along with other washing compounds. You may be better off using a liquid detergent rather than a powder. This may also fix the main door leakage too. Hope this helps!

Water is pouring out of my dispenser drawer

I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.

Detergent dispenser stuck

Had the same problem here today, the softener dispenser blue plastic piece was loose jamming the whole dispenser tray, to resolve remove top cover, two screws on top rear, slide the cover towards the back, you will then see the detergent dispenser, press the right clips and pull it off slightly at the back; do not put too much pressure and try to remove the cover completely, just pry the plastic cover a bit then pull the detergent tray it should come right out.
