Detergent dispenser filling with water and i can't remove it to empty it.

My whirlpool washing machine (front loading) is not rinsing the water from the fabric softner section and I cannot remove the dispenser tray from the machine to empty it. The machine is pretty new and problem has only started in the last week or so. Can anyone help?

SOURCE: Detergent dispenser filling with water and i can't remove it to empty it.

Hello Everyone,  I had the same problem with my washing machine, what I didn't find the push button they are talking about, but what I realised, that at the bottom of the drawer, in the middle of it, there is a hing that keeps the drawer in its place, I used a screw driver to push that hing, and got the drawer out.
I have cleaned the fabric softner section, but when i put it on again, I got the same problem again, I am not sure about the reason of that.
If someone can help on that one, that would be great ;)

Why would the machine leak out the detergent drawer when filling?

When the machine starts to wash water passes into the detergent dispenser and carries the detergent into the drum, if the detergent outlet is blocked, or resticted, this will cause the water to leak out of the dispenser.

Check the dispenser to see if an accumulated crust of powder is clogging the outlet holes, most dispensers are removable for cleaning, check your machine instructions for details.

Fab. softener dispenser will not empty

I had this exact problem, with the exact same washer (but the Kenmore version), and it was solved by replacing (Not sure the exact name of the part) but its the plastic Detergent Dispenser housing, that you can see when u remove the Detergent Dispenser draw. There was a crack in mine,,, and the softner would either fully, or dispense half into the first rinse cycle.

Whirlpool bleach dispenser not dispensing properly

It sounds like the bleach dispenser is clogged or has a crack in it. What we do, is when we bleach our clothes and I know that this is extra work, but we wait until the washing machine is full of water, then add the bleach directly to the wash.

Detergent dispenser is filled with water after wash is completed.

The water is left there because the syphon action is not working in the dispenser, what you need to do is to remove the dispenser drawer completely and thoroughly clean the conditioner compartment, poking any holes or tube, particularly the syphon tube with a piece of flexible wire or similar to ensure it is completely unblocked.
. to test, fill the conditioner compartment with water, and it should slowly empty itself, if it does not, then it is still blocked.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.

The softener holder just fills with water but will not drain.

Is water left in the dispenser at the end of the cycle?
About two tablespoons of water remaining in the dispenser compartment at the end of the cycle is normal. At the end of the wash cycle, fresh water automatically cleans the dispenser. Check that the cycle is complete before opening the dispenser drawer.
Is the dispenser drawer clogged?
A clogged dispenser can block the flow of water through the dispenser and cause water to leak out. Manually remove the dispenser, and clean any leftover detergent or additives that could clog the flow of water through the dispenser. Also, check that the detergent drawer is always completely closed during the cycle. If the drawer is not closed completely, water can leak out onto the floor.
Are the additives dispensing too early?
Here are a few things that can cause the additives (detergent, fabric softener or liquid chlorine bleach) to dispense early:
  • Check that the dispenser is not overfilled. Do not fill past the MAX fill lines on the dispenser. Overfilling can cause early dispensing of liquid chlorine bleach and/or fabric softener.
  • Check that the detergent separator is in the correct position. For liquid detergent, the separator should be in the front position. For powdered detergent, the separator should be in the rear position. If the separator is in the rear position while you are using liquid detergent, it will dispense immediately, which is not how it is designed to work.
  • Use powdered HE detergent when using the DELAY WASH option. Liquid detergent may dispense prior to the start of wash.
Are the additives dispensing too late?
The additives will not dispense until the proper time if the DELAY WASH option is selected.
