Question about LG WM2077CW Laundry XL Front Load Stackable Washer

1 Answer

Lg wm2077cw we have water coming out from where the soap dispenser is.  I can't see anything plugging it but I can't get anything to bend around the bend in the hose to see if anything is blocking it further on.  The water does drain but not fast enough.  Also, it has a slight leak at the bottom of the door seal.  Any help would be appreciated.

There is a valve at the end of that bent hose you mentioned which could be stuck or jammed up with soap. You'll have to take the top off to get to it. Be sure and clean the bottom of the glass on the inside of the door. A single piece of hair can allow water to seep out.

Issues with leftover soap and water in soap dispenser when wash is done. Cleaned dispenser and still doing it!!! PLEASE HELP

Remove the soap drawer completely, and wash it in warm water. Clean the roof of the hole where the dispenser drawer is using a plastic pot brush and some hot water. There are holes where the water comes from and they get splashed with soap.

My washer is flooding water out of the soap dispenser and not going into the tub where the clothes are

Washing machines, whether top load or front load types, have a tendency to build up back pressure through the soap dispenser if the pipe/chute is clogged due to soap build-up being present. Check that the pipe/chute that conveys the soap and water to the drum is not clogged.

Water is pouring out of where the soap dispenser is. Can anyone help?

its pouring out because the dispenser is getting clogged in somewhere and not letting the water to the drain pump so its pouring from the soap dispenser. Remove the dispenser, pour water into the opening and make sure water can get into the machine freely. Inspect the opening for soap build up.
If water goes down slowly , open the washer door and feel around the bellow for anything blocking the water inlet port into the washer (socks can sometimes get wedged up there and cause a blockage).
If it all checks out ok, make sure the machine is properly leveled and not leaning forward.
Hope that helps!

Fabric softener not draining

Remove the dispenser drawer by pushing down on the tab at the center back and pulling drawer out. Now, remove the top of the fabric softener compartment and the parts of the soap dispenser and clean them all out. An old toothbrush often helps. Reassemble and replace. They should siphon out now.

LG WM2277HS - water backing up into soap dispenser

The pipe from the soap dispenser to the tub is quite large, it seems as if the water isn't getting out of the dispenser quick enough. Pull the whole dispenser out of the machine. There is a release clip at the back of the cup with the tray fully open. Clean out all soap residue and scum. Sometimes there is also a spot or setting for liquid or powder detergent. Adjust accordingly. Reassemble and try it again.

Lg wm1812cw front load washer

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.

Soap dispenser slow leak

Plug off the wall socket first. Remove screws to remove the top of your machine. Check to see if the rubber hoses are connected well to the dispenser chamber, if not connect them properly. Another thing could be your dispenser drawer; you could pull it out gently to clean it; or you could even use a tooth brush for access.
