Hello. We have seen this before, the bleach top pops up a little bit and locks it back. take the top off the washer - 2 screws from behind and the top of the dispenser will have snaps - unsnap a few of them and slide the drawer out. if this happens often replace the dispenser drawer.
Regards, Joe

Tip

Dishwasher does not dispense cleaning tablet


The soap dispenser drawer is supposed to open during the cycle. Try first to understand if the drawer is opening or not during cycle.

If the drawer is not opening, then check if the opening mechanism is stuck, if it is blocked by dirt and soap, if it is broken, or if something, for examble a basket too close to dispenser drawer is preventing the drawer from opening.

Some dishwasher works only with powder, in that case indications are given on the owners manual.

If the drawer opens and the table, or powder is still staying stuck in the drawer, then that means that the spray does not have enough power to solve the tablet.
In that case check spray arms and impeller pump.Also check water temperature.

If the problem is also happening with powder, then it is probably a drawer not opening on cycle.

Dispenser drawer stuck closed


A common issue on older lg washers, since fixed with a redesign on newer ones. The immediate solution is to take washers top off and partially take dispenser tray apart to free it. The issue is the fabric dispenser is slightly ajar and catching on a lip of the dispenser top and jamming the tray. Thoroughly cleaning tray and all parts will fix but a more foolproof permanent solution involves filing down the leading edge of the fabric softener tub to a rounded edge so it will never happen again. Not easy, but doable. Two screws in back to take top off by sliding it back about two inches and lifting off. Good luck

My Frigidaire front load washer will not dispense the fabric softner during cycle.


Clean the dispenser drawer if water is introduced into the fabric softener cavity but does not dispense. Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops and push down the release tab marked "PUSH" and then pull the dispenser out completely.

Lift the dispenser drawer cover and clean the tubes both in the dispenser drawer and the cover.

Turn the drawer over then release the conveyor from the tabs and lift it off. Clean the conveyor and the drawer thoroughly.

Snap the conveyor into the tabs back into position and then reinstall the dispenser cover making sure the tubes are properly seated.

Slide the dispenser drawer back into the drawer opening while pushing down the part marked "PUSH".

Let us know if the fabric softener dispenser still does not dispense while both the detergent and bleach dispensers dispense.

The slide out drawer for detergent and softener will not open, stuck from the inside. I think one of the trays inside the drawer somehow has moved up blocking the drawer from sliding out.


remove the lid of the washer. there are 3 torque screws you can either use a t15 or a 7 millimeter. locate the dispenser there are clips on the lid of the dispenser push in and lift up. be careful you will be able to get your drawer open. let me know if you need any more help

Detergent dispenser drawer stuck


You may have to remove the washer top (three phillips screws at the back, then push top back about two inches and lift it off) then drill a hole in the top of the plastic dispenser to allow you to use an object like a screwdriver to maneuver the offending part around so it will drop down and allow you to open the dispenser drawer. Use foil tape to seal hole if you don't want to buy a new dispenser. Clean out blue plastic dispenser parts so detergent will siphon out completely. Pushing down on the center tab at the back of the dispenser should allow you to take the dispenser drawer the remainder of the way out. In the future, make sure you do not use over 1 tablespoon of HE soap (and 1 teaspoon of fabric softner) max per load. Even less if you have 2x or more detergent.

Dispenser door stuck


The dispenser assembly has warped and needs to be accessed from the top.  Remove the top panel to gain access to the dispenser.  The top part of the dispenser can be pried off so you could remove the drawer.

Soap dispenser stuck on LG WM2277HW


Great advice. I used a portion of you plan. Pulled off the top, but since the softener cup is on the right, I only uncliped the 3 clips on that side of the assembly. With those loose, I could pry gently up on the back portion of the assembly lid, and the drawer pulled out.

I also see no need for the cover, other than a measuring device. So removed the screws at the front, pushed the assembly back into the washer, and unclipped the rest of the lid. Once the lid of the tray assembly was off, it was easy to remove the softener cover. The only challenging part was getting the re-closed assembly to go back into the cut-out in the face metal. I got caught a couple times, but getting my hand up under the assemble allowed be to push evenly up on both sides as I pushed it forward into place.

Now the door works fine again. Seems to be a significant design flaw by LG.

Hope the helps other.

My detergent/softener pull out drawer is stuck!!! need help please!


This problem has just started popping up for me as well.  I believe that the problem is in the dispenser assembly where the drawer slides into.  You will have to pull hard and possibly may break a part of the plastic drawer to open it.  The dispenser assembly looks like it is bowing in the middle and jamming up against the dispenser drawer.  If it jams up like that, you may need to replace both the drawer and dispenser assembly togther.
