Brand new Miele 3033 stacked washer, there is a large amount of water in the soap dispenser after each use, also in rubber gasket area around drum. Is this an installation problem? I've only used it twice.

    I assume soap disp is not dirty due to age of machine. As for water on door boot seal, It should drain back into drum asit will have small hole in it for that purpose. if apart from that is ok I dont think you should worry too much....

Hi, I have a LG Tromm WD-14331AD. At the start of the wash cycle, water will dispense, but not a lot. When spinning, there is hardly any water in the drum and water just stops dispensing.


A front loader only uses a very small amt of water. That's the point of front loaders. Make sure u only use a very small amt of detergent also. And use white vinegar in place of fabric softener. If washer is slow to fill you can check the filters in the supply lines. Take the water lines off the back of the washer and check the filters in the washer

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.

I have water flowing out of the soap dispenser on my front load model wm1815cs. How can I fix it.


Sounds like the dispenser is clogged with soap residue -- needs cleaning. First, try just pouring copious amounts of water in it and running something akin to a pipe cleaner down through it.

If this doesn't work, let me know.

Afront load washer leaks around soap dispenser


we had this problem with our washer (samsung wf316bac) for a while. 2 service calls did nothing to fix it. Washer is level, use correct soap and amount, etc. etc. I had to turn down the hot and cold water faucets to fix the problem. It worked. I think there is a siphon problem with the soap dispenser design... On a very large load we now get the 'nf' (no flow) message and have to start the washer again. Beats water on the floor... Samsung denies having any problem but you will find this all over the interent. hope this helps...

It will not dispense the fabric softener.


Hi
You'll need to clean the dispenser by removing it. Use white vinegar and spray then spray the dispenser & agitator with it too. Use hot water after a minute and vinegar will wash out the softener. Try using a soft brush to clean it. Try running a cycle with hot water and bleach (use no soap). Avoid using large amount of soap. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

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 front loader problem


If you remove the top cover you will see the soap dispenser unit on the left. It has a large rubber hose connecting it to the drum. If you remove two screws at the front you can free the dispenser for maintenance. You can undo the clips on the various hoses and check that they are clean.

Some people report some dripping from the soap dispenser even when the hose is unblocked. This seems to be a design fault.
