SOURCE: Cant open soap drawer on washer

I opened up the top of the washer by unscrewing the screw in the back. then I pressed down hard on the white plastic cover of the soap dispenser that you will see on the front left hand side of the machine. I also moved it slightly to the right by pushing on the side of the same unit.

The soap dispenser then opened up fine. I cleaned out the soap dispenser from any crud that developed in it. Now it opens and closes nicely.

Did you know there is a class action lawsuit against LG for mold that develops inside of this model washer? I joined in the lawsuit. There should be no mold accumulating in any washer.

SOURCE: Soap dispenser stuck on LG WM2277HW

Great advice. I used a portion of you plan. Pulled off the top, but since the softener cup is on the right, I only uncliped the 3 clips on that side of the assembly. With those loose, I could pry gently up on the back portion of the assembly lid, and the drawer pulled out.

I also see no need for the cover, other than a measuring device. So removed the screws at the front, pushed the assembly back into the washer, and unclipped the rest of the lid. Once the lid of the tray assembly was off, it was easy to remove the softener cover. The only challenging part was getting the re-closed assembly to go back into the cut-out in the face metal. I got caught a couple times, but getting my hand up under the assemble allowed be to push evenly up on both sides as I pushed it forward into place.

Now the door works fine again. Seems to be a significant design flaw by LG.

Hope the helps other.

SOURCE: Soap Dispenser drawer will not open.

Upon taking the top of washer off, it exposes the liquid dispenser. There are three snap clips on the right side as you look at it from the front. Unsnap and lift slightly on the dispenser lid. This should provide the clearance you need to open the drawer. Examine the blue covers for the fabric softener and bleach. You will see scrape marks where it has been rubbing on the the top cover when closing and opening. Using a soldering iron or an abrasive, wear down the sharp edges that are catching...This solved the problem for me.. ( :

I have a bush wm-1260b washing machine and the pull out drawer has the three slots for which the midddle slot you put your fabric softener in. After every wash that middle slot fills with water. We can not...


I had the same problem and just searched online and found your question. I have just taken the drawer out by pulling it out as far as it normally goes, then by pressing down on the blue top of the middle (conditioner) drawer the drawer will then pull out all of the way. Rinse the drawer under the tap and scrub off all gunk especially from the middle drawer and in and around the blue component. Reassemble and then push drawer back into the machine, remembering to press down on the blue part in order to push the drawer all the way back into place. I suggest watering down the conditioner a little when putting it in as I think that some are too thick and will leave residue, causing the build up of dried conditioner and the the filling up of water. This seems to have solved the problem and I think the manual does say to clean regularly, which I think I will start doing!

There is a cap from soap stuck in soap dispenser. water is backing up and out of dispenser, how can i retrieve it without calling a repair service


Push the tab next to the bleach dispenser down, pull out the dispenser drawer.
You should be able to find the cap and remove it. Simple fix. I would suggest if
you start the washer you may lose the cap down into the machine.

Jammed soap drawer


hiya
yes the screws are behind the soap drawer, will the drawer not open at all? if not then the only way would be to force it open and the chances are it will break and need replacing. if it opens about 2/3's of the way try pressing the thin blue locking tab in the middle of the two channels and pulling.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj

My detergent/softener pull out drawer is stuck!!! need help please!


This problem has just started popping up for me as well.  I believe that the problem is in the dispenser assembly where the drawer slides into.  You will have to pull hard and possibly may break a part of the plastic drawer to open it.  The dispenser assembly looks like it is bowing in the middle and jamming up against the dispenser drawer.  If it jams up like that, you may need to replace both the drawer and dispenser assembly togther.

Warming Drawer stuck


Pull the oven out and see if you can get to the pans from behind.  May have to lift up on the back of the oven to get out fallen pans.

Soap dispenser


I got my fixed last night. It was the "lid" for the softener despenser that was making the drawer stick. To remove it you need to take the top off of the washer. There is are two plastic "holders" on the back of the machine that hold the top onto the machine. Each of these "holders" have two screws, remove them, then remove the holder. You can then, with some effort, slide the top of the washer towards the back the then lift it off. You will then be able to see plastic tub that contains the drawer for the despensers. You can't remove this tub, but on the side facing the inside of the washer are a couple of tabs holding the top of the plastic down. You can gently release these tabs and pull up on the top slightly. This gave me enough "play" to then open the drawer. The problem, I believe, is that over time, that tub moves and makes it impossible for the drawer to open. With trial and error, I found that with removing the "lid" for the softener despenser, and completely closing the lid of the plastic tub, that that solved the problem.
