Water gushes out dispenser

Water gushes out of the dispenser onto the floor. It looks like it won't drain, or at least does so very slowly down the hose in the back to the tub. This causes the dispenser to overflow. Is there a valve or something down that hose that leads to the tub that may be broken?

Re: water gushes out dispenser

Something has gotten into the fill tube hose of the tub.  You will need to pull the drawer out and look down in the dispenser assembly to see if there is something blocking the hose.

My new LG washer always has water in the soap dispenser, bleach dispenser, and fabric softener dispenser after the cycle has finished. Is this normal?

Mine too!! Very annoying, especially since the water then drains down onto to floor and has actually made the door hinges stiff! I just use powdered bleach now.

All of the water came gushing out onto the floor...all hoses attached and in good shape

Nine tine out of ten the fill valve housing is cracked, try filling washer with bucket if no leaks that will prove it, if leaks with bucket fill the problen is probably the water pump or hose's that go to it

Water begins to drain into the detergent drawer but does not drain into drum fast enough so the drawer area begins to fill and then begins to spill out of the drawer area all over the floor. If I press...

remove the drain pump and check out.
This is inevitably caused by a blockage. The small fabric conditioner compartment in the soap dispenser drawer has a removable plastic cap. This cap fits on the top of a tube which has a hole running through it where the water should siphon through.

When the time comes for the fabric conditioner to be released, cold water enters the small compartment and just washes the conditioner over the top and down the dispenser to the tub. When the water stops flowing, all that is left is the clear water. This water should siphon up the inside of the cap and down the tube.

This tube often gets blocked with the conditioner and if you remove the dispenser drawer and take off the cap you can give the whole thing a good clean out. If the cap is missing, the siphoning will not occur.

To test the function, hold the soap drawer under the tap and allow the water to fill the fabric compartment to overflowing. When you turn off the tap, the remaining water should slowly siphon out of the hole under the cap.

its the problem in the pump and something is getting blocked in the pump so water is not getting out.

  1. Unplug the washer. Remove the three screws along the bottom of the toe panel and pull the panel forward to remove it.
  2. Put your bucket or towels under the drain pump. Open the pump slowly so the water doesn't all spill out at once. If you have a wet/dry vacuum, you can connect it to the drain hose to remove the water from the washer before opening the pump.
  3. Open the door covering the pump wiring and disconnect the wiring.
  4. Remove the two drain lines from the pump.
  5. Remove the screw that attaches the pump to the washer frame and pull out the pump.
  6. if the pump is leaky or cracked it needs replacement.

If I do a small load after a large load, on the rinse cycle teh water gushed up through the drain in the floor and floods the floor. The plumber snaked 50 feet twice and poured down acid and it still

Since the plumber snaked 50 feet, one must conclude that the blockage is beyond the 50 foot mark.

Shame on the plumber who stopped at 50 feet. he should have snaked all the way to the street system if you live in a city or to the septic tank if you live in the country.

I would call him back and tell him that he needs to finish the job.

Hello farijl,
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, Water gushing from powder dispenser drawer. I have been told to take out drawer and put to one side. Looking into drawer space at back on right hand side there is a hole to be unlocked. It is so scaled up I cannot see hole. Can you help me or do you have an illustration fo what I am supposed to be looking at and unblocking ? Hope you can help soon. Floor is flooding every wash and cannot afford to get man out.

I found what you are looking for!
Below I will post the site for your WD71 User guide.

If you scroll down to page 5 it will show you what and how to remove the transit brackets.
the dispenser drawer info is on pages 19 and 20.
My first post was incorrect about the bolt.
The American washers us a bolt!

You should be fine now and able to remedy this by your self
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Please remember to leave a rating
Thank You

The detergent dispenser
will not close properly or is
collecting water?

1. Check the drawer is properly aligned.
2. Clean the dispenser drawer (see Care and Maintenance).

Kenmore Series 80 agitate for 10 seconds and pause for several minutes

No, the most is a damaged pump, does it pause in agitation or just spin? I would check the lid switch and timer.
