Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

LG wm2277H washer . . . water left over in dispenser

In the drawer of my dispenser, I have a couple of slots. The one I use exclusively is the liquid dispenser.
For some reason, after a load of laundry, there is water (not liquid detergent) left in the dispenser. I take it out, empty it and then do another load and it happens again. I've pulled the whole drawer out, and it doesn't appear to have anything clogged. My laundry is still fresh and clean . . .
It hasn't done this before and I've had the machine about 4 years.
What to do?

If any of the dispenser trays are not inserted properly, the trays will not dispense correctly. Water will be left in the cups. Leaking may also occur.

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

The powder will not dispense. Water is getting in because the powder is wet and clumpy but is still left in the dispenser.


I suggest you remove the soap dispenser drawer and thoroughly clean it, ensuring that the outlet at the back of the drawer where the water and soap feed into the machine are completely clear of any soap buildup.

Before you replace the drawer, ensure that the water feed into the drawer (this is a pipe or tube above the drawer slot) is not clogged with soap.

When in wash it dosent remove all soap powder from clothes


I don't know how you are administering the soap powder to the machine..but for one, its recommended that you use detergent thats made exclusively for the front loader washer, usually says "he" on the front of the LIQUID detergent, they recommend that you use liquid detergent on top of that, BUT if you have to use regular powder detergent it must be put inside the tub and NOT the pull out detergent drawer. The reason why they want you to use liquid is because the powder detergent is not concentrated and when you use it, it lathers up alot and its harder for the front loader machine to clean out the clothes and I was told that they (sales agents) have heard of soap suds and bubble floods coming from the machine due to either using the powder detergent or using too much. Hope that this helps!!

Soap drawer is filled with water


Our 2 year old washer just started seeing this problem. After removing the detergent dispenser drawer from the washer, cleaning it and cleaning the slot it came from we stopped seeing water retention.

Water is pouring out of the detergent dispensing drawer from my 1 year old Samsung clothes washer model WF328AAW. When I opened the drawer, it was full of water. Something must be plugged. Is there...


Pull the drawer out you will find detergent has built up in side the dispenser probably from from way too much detergent, modern front loaders work best with a small amount of detergent and liquid detergent normally will wash better.

Hello. My frontload LG Washer started leaking


I have the same problem I think. During the wash cycle, water sometimes starts spraying/leaking from the detergent dispenser drawer. This orignally only happened during a 'NORMAL' wash and when I ran a 'SPEED WASH' it was ok. Now all of a sudden it's doing it during the 'SPEED WASH' also. I though it might be the water pressure so I turned down the flow going to the washer but that doesn't seem to help. If I knew how the detergent system worked maybe it would be easier to solve this problem.

Kenmore 11047511701 Front Load clothes washer: Liquid detergent runs out of dispenser and down front of machine immediately as liquid is poured in instead of holding liquid. Dispenser was not overfilled.


You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.
