LG WM-1285FHD Leaking from Dispenser Drawer area

My LG WM-1285FHD is leaking water. It appears to be coming from around the dispenser drawer area. You can see 2 little trickles from both corners. If I operate the machine with the drawer slightly open then the leaks stop. Trouble is my husband keeps shutting the drawer when he walks past!!

Any clues as to where the water is coming from or is it a design fault.

Cheers

There is a problem with the dispenser assembly where the drawer enters.  You will have to have it checked by a qualified LG technician to see what the problem is.

    I don't know what LG will do.  You can ask to talk to the supervisor and see if they will give you a one time warranty extension to take care of this part.


    Good luck

Leaking washing machine


Disconnect first the mains, power plug off the wall. You could have a clog in your soap drawer; pull the dispenser drawer completely out. There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer to remove. Clean the soap drawer with an old tooth brush. The usual block could be old soap, softener, etc. (you could also be using too much soap powder). I usually use just above 125ml (my measure cup says ml, I use front loader powder for the 5.5kg load) The wash is very gud. 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. Next could be one of hoses has become loose, should be re-fixed. Examine by removing top of the front loader; this will give you a gud view of the pipes.

LG front load washer is leaking a lot of water from the soap dispencer


Remove dispenser drawer by pulling out to it's stop, then pressing in tab at back to allow you to pull it free from machine. Look for a build up of fabric softener in the filler area. If that is clean, remove washer top by taking screws of out back side and sliding top back 2 inches and lifting it off. Remove rubber connector from dispenser area to top of tub and check for obstructions. (mouse nest?)

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.

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.

Problems with LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer


It is a rare problem but I've seen it happen.  The only way to resolve this issue immediately is to remove the top of the washer to gain access to the dispenser.  The dispenser can be disassembled by unsnapping the top section where the hoses are connected.  Once the top section is lifted, you can safely pull the drawer out.  Not sure what happened but more than likely the water dispenser has warped downward causing it to jam the drawer.  Recommend replacing the dispenser to resolve this problem.

Washer Leaks from Detergent Compartment


Two things might be wrong with this unit.  One problem is there is a blockage inside the hose that sends water into drum.  Make sure that's clear.  The other problem is the dispenser assembly may have a leaking problem and will spray water at an angle that will cause it to leak through the dispenser drawer.  My recommendation is to have the dispenser assembly inspected and possibly replaced.

Leaking washing machine


you need to clean above where the drawer goes in, the water jet holes get blocked and spray sidewards. also you can reduce the water pressure at the supply tap to a fast trickle this will avoid jets of water flowing over and forward of the tray.
