Well..that can be from the inside of the feeder hoses...

turn off water in back..

disconnect both hoses(most likely hot side)..

take them to shower/sink(utility type) and rinse them out..

might need to use a powerful stream to flush em.

then, reconnect, and run a cycle with only hot or cold(to test which one is causing the problem).

usually that black material is from inside of hoses.

can be from lines down below, so you may need to do same for those, but check feeder hoses first.

WATER LEAKING FROM POWDER TRAY AND AROUND DOOR


There is a ball return valve that wants cleaning. Disconnect the appliance from water and mains. Turn machine on its side and look underneath. At the bottom of the white plastic drum you should see a black rubber hose about the size of a mug fastened by a hose clip. Remove hose clip and extract the hose from the drum and look inside. You should see a white plastic cone about the size of a paper cup with a plastic ball inside, remove and clean of any debris and replace. Be careful when reattaching the black how to the drum or you will get a flood if not properly attached.
Hopefuly that will solve your problem.

Water still leaking


If the water is running down the front from underneath the drawer, then I would say that the hose is blocked from the dispenser into the drum.
You need to remove top cover, locate large black hose from dispenser into drum, feel and manipulate it to free any blockage of soap powder..
If the water still does not go into the drum, then you are going to have to remove hose to clear blockage.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
