Lg wm-2277 dispenser tray

Forgot to lock down the tab on the bleach insert and the dispenser tray was pushed in. now I cannot pull the dispenser tray out because the bleach dispenser is somehow stuck inside. Is there a way for me to be able to try to untangle this mess other than breaking the dispenser tray?

Hiya Vanch... disconnect the electric.. remove the lid screws at the rear.. slide from the front to the back with lid.
Depress the tab at the top of the drawer "gently" whilst easing the drawer from the machine.
Refit lid.. connect up to electric.. Sorted!!

How do I remove fabric softener dispenser?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to remove the fabric softener dispenser from your Frigidaire washer, model# ATF6000ES. To remove the drawer, please do the following:

• Remove the drawer by pulling it out until it stops.
• Reach back into the left rear corner of the drawer cavity and press down firmly on the lock tab (left rear portion of the drawer). Pull out the drawer.
• Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments.
• Rinse the drawer and inserts with hot tap water to remove traces of accumulated powders and liquids. Large amounts of fabric softener residue may indicate improper dilution or more frequent cleaning is required.
• To clean the drawer opening, use a small brush to clean the recess. Remove all residues from the upper and lower parts of the recess.
• Replace the insert pressing the "X" to lock it in place. Return the dispenser drawer.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I do not use bleach and the bleach dispenser has water that remains filled after a wash.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener/bleach tray which needs a thorough clean, paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD
-------------------------------------
Try the following- in the second and third cases whilst looking from underneath!
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit).You may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath. Again you may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube
but on others the cover is part of the tray's plastic top. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The detergent/softener/bleach tray looks moldy and it is only possible to wipe out part of it. More important on the last load the softener did not dispense and the dispenser is now full of water on top...


the drawer is removeable, there is a concave tab where you depress firmly down; to bypass drawer stop. remove and clean the drawer and all compartments under hot water. also, now clean inside the dispenser cavity itself. finally. remove both hoses on back of machine and clean the inlet screens.

When you slide the dispenser drawer all the way out, there is a tab on the top, toward the back, you can sort of pull up on this tab, and then slide the dispenser the rest of the way out. Clean away!

I accidently poured my fabric softener in my bleach dispenser!!. I'm not an idiot--I just took migraine med. & I guess my head was fuzzier than I thought!! What should I do?


Pull the dispenser drawer forward until it stops. Push the tab down at the back side of the drawer to allow you to remove the drawer the rest of the way out of the machine. Dump out the dispenser drawer, re-install dispenser drawer.

Mould in water inlet assembly how to remove this assembly for cleaning. the fabric softner try never gets drained. Has a three valve inlet sysrem.


Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops then push down the release tab and pull the drawer out completely. Separate the parts then immerse it in hot water with bleach and give it good a scrub with an old toothbrush.

The dispenser drawer cavity does not need to be removed for cleaning. Otherwise, you have to remove the top panel, console, toe panel, and the front panel. Removal of the front panel requires the removal of the door lock/switch assembly and the boot be separated completely from the front panel opening. Use hot water to loosen the mold then spray it with household cleaner with bleach. Let it sit for a couple minutes before starting to scrub the molds off.
