Soap dispenser not working

Model wm2277hs:
I loved my washer up until a week ago. First thing I noticed was that water would be left over in my soap dispenser drawer and I would have to empty it before the next load. No problem just a few extra steps. Then all of a sudden none of the soap, fabric softner etc. would wash out into the wash. I called the service center they informed me about the drain at the bottom left which I never knew about. Emptied that and have run a cycle with no soap and no spin as suggested. Did not work! I have done this three more times to no avail. I even removed the soap dispenser tray and ran hot water through out the hose to rinse it out. Did not work. Have NEVER used anything but he tide in my machine. When I did run the cleaning cycle there was a little water left in the dispenser tray so the water seems to be running through when there is no soap in it. PLEASE HELP!

It sounds like the water valve has a clogged filter.  Shut the cold water to the washer off, disconnect the hose and remove the filter screen in the washer water valve.  Clean out the filter with toothbrush.  Reinstall and everything should be ok.

SOURCE: My front load washer will not empty out the fabric

I have the same problem with mine. I found that some fabric softners worked better than others. I found Downy the worst, when i switched the problem seems to stop once i cleaned out the drawer

Frigidaire affinity soap dispenser doesnt work


Good Morning Friend, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

I see that you have a Frigidaire washer and that you are having trouble with the soap dispenser. Is the soap dispenser not dispensing bleach or softener? Is there water left in the dispenser? Are you able to open and/or close the dispenser? Also, may I have your model number please? You can normally locate the serial on the upper front, as you open the door. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you!

Why does my Electrolux #EWFLW65HIW have water left in soap dispenser


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Electrolux washer, model# EWFLW65HIW, has water left in the soap dispenser. This is typical for your particular model. The soap and fabric softener area are set up on what is called a siphoning system. This means that when it is time for the soap to release it will release and run water through the area. If the mechanism closes before the water is done running through, you can have water left in the soap dispenser. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

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.

We had the same problem- for us it was because we were mixing laundry booster (Oxyclean) with liquid soap in the dispenser. It seems the water running through the tray had insufficient pressure to properly flush the tray out, so residue accumulated on the back & underside of the tray. Our water pressure is good here, and we don't use a water softener or filters that can reduce the pressure. Unfortunately it seems to just be a bad design of the soap dispenser tray.

We also had a problem with water/bleach leaking from our soap dispenser- when we used the bleach compartment in the dispenser we got leaks dripping onto the floor from behind the front cover of the washing machine. It was running down the front of the washer behind the front cover & coming out onto the floor. The repair guy said this was because the dispenser tray was pulled out too far, but the reason we were pulling the soap tray out so far was because the bleach compartment was too far back in the tray to use if we didn't. Now we just leave the drawer partially closed & pour the bleach directly into the soap compartment along with the soap.

Where's the soap going?


Clean the dispenser water hose ,stuck by liquid dried soup./ the hose going to washer was open during washing time so all soap loaded was gone /
During water refill if nothing water pass to soap dispenser the soap will remain intact / but in washing time all soap will directly washout dispose to drain hose without to clean clothes.

Water in soap holder after washing.


my washer is about 1 year old. It started leaving water in all the the compartments,soap,bleach and softner. I tried everything also. Nothing seemed to work. I finally took the hoses off the back of the machine, and the cold water hose screen was clogged up going into the machine. I cleaned all the screens and haven't had that problem again. I think there wasn't enough water pressure to flush out the containers. I dont think its gravity or suction, its water pressure. unless you get a blast of water into these compartments, there will always be water left in these containers.

Soap Dispenser Problem


bono, you want to see if your dispensor motor is working. Remove the 3 screws for the top in back and slide the top off toward the back. Put the machine into the test mode by; turn the machine on, select the drain spin cycle, push the spin speed button until no spin is lit, push the prewash option 4 times until C:00 appears...Let it run it's auto test. When it shows C:02 it is activating the dispensor motor, you can observe it on the left side. Catriver...post back.
