Kenmore Elite HE3t Front Load Washer leak from dispenser

I have a HE3t and have just today noticed that a substantial amount of water (less than a gallon) is leaking from vent at the bottom the soap/bleach dispenser tray. the tray has no blockages that I can see. Is this a known problem?

I was just about to call the service teck when I decided I shouldn't be this stupid and try and fix it myself.

I took the tray out and looked in with a flashlight.
Saw nothing.
Cleaned the tray and then checked the drainage hole inside the opening where the tray normally feeds the machine the soap.

I found a inside of the liquid XXXKing laundry cap partially blocking the drain.

Took it out and works fine.

Water leaks out of the soap dispenser of my kenmore elite front loader and all the soap or bleach us not out


The 1st thing to try is to take out the dispenser ,there is a little piece that you will push down and then pull the entire assembly out, rinse it out with hot water ,most likely there is a build up in the dispenser,there after use only powder detergent, and no more then 1 tbs ,and any other stuff IE bleach ,fabric softener,use 1/2 the amount and dilute it with water.

My sister pours a lot of liquid softener into our Kenmore Elite front load dispenser. I said to only use 1/4 cup as recommended. Will using too much fabric softener cause problems?


YES!! This machine uses an average of 14 gallons of water per load as compared to 40 gallons for a top load!! Less water means less detergents!! Excess detergent and softener can create build up withing the machine that will cause unpleasant odors and eventually rear bearing failure.

Kenmore elite He3 leaking water into tub


Outstanding diagnosis. You are correct to assume a water inlet problem and, "yes", this can be a common problem. If you live in area that has hard water, or if you use well water, sediment, rust and calcified deposits can clog the small diaphragms inside the valve causing them not to close properly and leak by. You can attempt to clean the valve by removing it and submerging it in a 50/50 solution of distilled vinegar and hot water for about 30 minutes, Sometimes this can dissolve any clogs and restore the valve to full operate. However, if this does not work, you will need to replace the valve.

The following link explains the steps required to replace the valve if you need directions:

I have included web resources to search for replacement parts.


If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore HE3t water fills by itself! with door open too! doesnt always drain fully


If you tip the machine back at an angle, you should see a clear plastic sausage shaped thing with a plastic tube coming from it, you will need to remove the plastic thig (pressure vessl) and clean it out.
