Lg tromm front loading washing machine has

Lg tromm front loading washing machine has started leaking water from the soap dispenser while the machine is filling. I have been hitting the pause button when the water starts to leak so what's in the dispenser can drain into drum. Is this just a detergent/fabric softener build up problem?

    Water flows in at a good rate, does not seem any different from the good old days when the thing worked right. Did use some non HE Tide liquid detergent though and have a teenager who most likely used too much.

    Tell me what detergent and amount you are using, and how fast the water flows into your machine. (just a trickle, or with good force)

Yes the system is cloghed. Pull the detergent drawer out and clean the drawers housing. try using some bleach. It allways helps.

BE ADVICED: after using bleach run quick wash cycle on without any load, it's just to get rid of all bleech remains and not to damage your clothes

Update me about your progress

I have a front loading washing machine. The soap dispenser is no longer dispensing detergent into the machine


SOMWE TIMES THE TUBE LINES CAN GET BLOCKED OR CLOGGED OR EVEN HAVE LEAKS, YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE OUT THE DISPENSER AND CHECK CONNECTING TUBES. ALSO TRY POURING VINEGAR INTO TUBE AND LET SIT FOR AN HOUR OR SO

Why is water sitting in soap dispenser pullout drawer?


Water remaining in soap dispenser. In front loading washers made by LG (some Kenmore too), water may remain filled in the soap dispenser after the wash cycle. This may be caused by the siphon tube being contaminated by detergent residue. To clear it, remove the siphon cover from the tube, and clean them thoroughly, making sure that all residue is removed. Replace the cover and make sure it seats properly all the way down. This will ensure that the siphon starts and continues until the dispenser tray is emptied. A small amount of water, a half inch or less, remaining is normal. There is a video on YouTube that suggests buying a new detergent tray. Try cleaning it first. There are no parts that will break or wear out under normal use.
