Water coming out detergent drawer and running down the front of machine when we get to the softener cycle

Try pulling the detergent drawer all the way out. Look for blockage in the outlet at the rear. The outlet holes should be open; if they are, lift the top and look for the hose that goes from the bottom of the drwaer slide to the tub.

I need a manual for Spectra TL3635 INOX washer

The manual doesn't appear to be available online, but you don't really need it.

Remove the drawer by pulling it out, and then lift and pull. Are you sure it isn't marked what goes where? My Whirlpool washer is marked in raised writing.

The detergent is one large compartment that is open at the back.

The bleach dispenser is usually in the middle and is small.

The fabric Softener is full depth, but has a system which siphons the softener out when water is added to it. In other words it is a reservoir that holds the fabric conditioner until needed.

With the drawer removed, turn the machine on to do a small wash. Water will come down on the section for detergent at the very beginning. towards the end of the first fill, another jet of water will come down to add bleach to the already filled machine. After the rinses, when it gets to final rinse, a jet of water will hit the Fabric Conditioner compartment. Get ready to insert the drawer if the water splashes out, or plug the front with a tea towel.

I accidentally drop my detergent lid in the softener tray. how will i remove it ..i tried to open the machine but i dont know how.

If it went in the hole at the back it will come out inside the drum. You may be able to pull out the dispenser drawer and check behind it, usually pull out and lift, or there may be a tab under the drawer to push to release the drawer

Water leaking out of detergent dispenser

As you said in the question you just need to check the following things.
*Pull out the tray fully and lift it upwards to remove the detergent holder.
*Clean the dispenser housing and drawer with water if you find any traces of detergent in it.
*Reassemble the tray and push it back to its position.(flush with top).
After checking this you are washing machine will be fine.Thanks for your question.

The soap tray fills with water at the back conditioner section on every run (no matter which programme) and does not drain, so I have to manually remove it and empty it after every load. I also think this...

Remove the detergent drawer by pulling it out and then pressing down the yellow part on the back of the drawer. Clean the drawer fully by hand in a washing up bowl using a mild detergent. Detach the yellow part from the grey part by turning it upside down and push in the clips gently. Clean the yellow part thoroughly. Put the yellow part back on - it just clicks back in place, and push your detergent drawer back in. Do an empty cotton wash at 85C (with no washing powder) to sanitise your machine.

When i do a wash i always have a build up of water left in the fabric conditioning drawer which refuses to drain away.

Often this a caused by a simple blockage of detergent towards the back of the drawer.

Most drawers lift out to allow for cleaning please do so and also use a cloth to remove any detergent from the back of the drawer housing.

If this does not work the blockage is internal and you may need to run the machine on empty a few times. (Often filling the detergent drawer with boiling water will help)

It is imperative that you do not put any more detergent into the machine until this blockage is removed.

If none of these solutions work, try a shelf bought limescale remover and use as directed on the bottle.

Cannot open the detergent drawer. It is stuck.

No simple solution other all you can do is try pushing it back in and pull it out. If that fails you will need to force it there is no way to get into it, LG parts are not expensive if you happen to break it.
