Hi,
This should be a very simple fix for you.

You can remove the dispensing drawer completely - usually by pushing down on a springy tab. Look along the level of the top for the catch.

When removed, give it a good wash in the sink, as there will be a build up of goo in the little syphon arrangement that dips into the softener area.
If it allows you to unclip it, then do, and rinse it out with running water.
Then dry with kitchen towel. You may need to do this twice.

While the drawer is out, give the hole it goes into a spray with kitchen cleaner, and wipe it clean - don't loose your cloth!
Often this is an area that goes mouldy, leading to a musty smell on the clothes.

Click all together and it should work fine again.
Thanks for using fixya,
If this cures the problem, please rate for others to follow.

hi there,

the leak underneath could be from the pump or the drain hose. some washers have a tub to pump boot that sometimes springs a leak.

for a 4-month-old washer, i would certainly hope you pay nothing. F&P appliances come with at least a 2 year warranty. check your user & care guide for warranty information.

How does soap dispenser work? what does up for liquid and down for powder mean?


Liquid laundry soap (comes in plastic liquid container) uses the up. Dry powder laundry soap uses the soap that comes in a box, therefore not liquid. and uses the down switch slider control.

How can I get a laundry cap out of the drain where you put the laundry soap, bleach and softener?


Can you see the cap?
Is the soap tube a separate piece that you can remove?
What's the year, make and model?
A local repairman would be able to solve the problem, as a last resort.

My 3 month old washer suddenly started leaking from underneath. There was a code displayed of a 5d, but the washer drains into a laundry sink, there are no kinks in the input line.


The washer is detecting too much soap. Make sure that you are using HE (high efficiency) soap Do a clean washer or hot cycle once a month with bleach or white vinegar with no clothes in it. Your washer only uses half the water that a regular machine does. The HE is specially designed for front loaders and these types of machines

Can you use granular soap and where to apply it? we have a frigidaire washer with a drawer to put liquid soap in.


On our washer there is a little slider in that drawer that allows the opening into the washer to open wider for solid laundry soap. Maybe that's the case in yours. If not then you might be confined to using HE liquid soap.

I make homemade liquid laundry saop and when I use


you NEED to buy real washing soap from a store. I recommend Tide because you may be mixing wrong ingredients or not adding something. If buying new/real soap doesnt work i would go to a sears or email sears at their website and tell them.

We had the same problem- for us it was because we were mixing laundry booster (Oxyclean) with liquid soap in the dispenser. It seems the water running through the tray had insufficient pressure to properly flush the tray out, so residue accumulated on the back & underside of the tray. Our water pressure is good here, and we don't use a water softener or filters that can reduce the pressure. Unfortunately it seems to just be a bad design of the soap dispenser tray.

We also had a problem with water/bleach leaking from our soap dispenser- when we used the bleach compartment in the dispenser we got leaks dripping onto the floor from behind the front cover of the washing machine. It was running down the front of the washer behind the front cover & coming out onto the floor. The repair guy said this was because the dispenser tray was pulled out too far, but the reason we were pulling the soap tray out so far was because the bleach compartment was too far back in the tray to use if we didn't. Now we just leave the drawer partially closed & pour the bleach directly into the soap compartment along with the soap.
