You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Whirlpool Duet Washer dispenser arm always starts cycle in fabric softener tray and bypasses soap tray.


Are you getting an error code possible F28 its possible its something in the linkage take the top off and start any wash cycle the dispense motor should move the diverter to the wash cubicle look or listen for any popping noise as if linkage is binding if nothing found I would suspect the motor it has contacts inside that feed back to the control indicating its position if the internal gears are slipping then the motor will rotate till contacts made regardless of diverter position

During the rinse cycle I see a trickle of water running down on the left side of the machine. The leak does not happen on every load. Any thoughts on the cause? Do I need a new front gasket? Thanks


The left hand side is where the soap dispenser sits

Remove the drawer clean out the pipes leading to the drum and give it another test

If it still leaks then remove the top and run a cycle , watch the hoses for splits.

Be careful and cover the programmer area with newspaper before you apply power

Leaking soap dispenser


There should not be suds up that high in the washer. You are experiencing a over sudsing condition and spin is throwing up throw the fill line in the dispenser. Run some fabric softener in a load with no clothes to clean out any hidden suds. Then use only HE (High efficiency) detergent and half of what they recommend! The softer the water the less the soap you use. Sounds like you may be using non HE detergent. My guess if the machine is fine.

Whirlpool Duet GHW9100L pours water out of the soap dispenser dra


probable cause is there is an article of clothing that is stuck between the outer and inner tubs, in the area where the dispenser water and detergent enter the machine. you can run your hand around the rubber boot and you might be able to remove the article, it will be in the upper left part of the machine. if nothing can be found than you have a plugged up dispenser hose.

Soap not being used


We learned from our new Duet that when washing with Tide soap powder, there is an adjustment inside the pull out drawer where the soap powder goes. You will see a grey plastic slider that goes to the right for liquid soap & to the left for powder soap.
Moving this slider to the left corrected this problem - not using all of the soap powder needed - for us.
Good luck !
