I am finding the soap dispenser is full of water when I begin a new load of clothes. Where is it coming from? What should I do about it? I have a GE Profile Harmony.


Check that your machine is level or set according to the manual.
If it is tilted forwards the water cannot run out of the dispenser under gravity, which is how it empties.

Electrolux washing machine will not dispense fabric softener


Hello Dawn, I am happy to assist you!



Based on the symptoms you are describing, it sounds like the siphoning mechanism or water valve is clogged up. Scum will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into your washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. Try removing the soap dispenser drawer and the insert in the dispenser as well for cleaning. Reinsert the drawer once it is clean and dry.



If the abovementioned tips do not resolve your issue, I would recommend having a service technician to accurately diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.



Best regards!

We have a Kenmore frontloader pooring water from soap dispenser


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.

Kenmore Elite HE3t Front Load Washer leak from dispenser


I was just about to call the service teck when I decided I shouldn't be this stupid and try and fix it myself.

I took the tray out and looked in with a flashlight.
Saw nothing.
Cleaned the tray and then checked the drainage hole inside the opening where the tray normally feeds the machine the soap.

I found a inside of the liquid XXXKing laundry cap partially blocking the drain.

Took it out and works fine.

He3t washing machine bleach dispenser if full of water after a load of wash.


Pull disp out. Check to see if its clean. Put into sink and run a sead stream of water into bleach cup till overflows and syhpon tube begins to drain water. Turn of spicket while holding disp steady and level. If the water drains cold water valve is faulty or screen is restriced reducing water preasure. Poor water preasure will prevent proper syhponing. If disp doesn't syphon or drain water out while in sink its either faulty or dirty.

KENMORE ELITE HE3T CODE F-02


F02 is long drain.
Just because it came up doesn't mean there's a problem, it simply means there was a failure during the cycle, if it returns on a regular basis, you have a problem.

F02 error could be caused by the over use of soap, you need to make sure your using 2 tablespoons of HE soap, 1/4 cap at the most.
Over sudsing, could cause the water pump to run longer, the pump is designed for 15 min duty cycle which means, 15 minutes on to 45 minutes off. The computer may sense too much soap, and continue to pump. HE soap will cure that, along with SUD error, possible F09 (overflow condition), you may also notice the timing is wrong, HE soap works well in these machines and F/l washer go hand in hand
if the F02 returns the remove the 3 torx screws from the bottom kick panel, and remove the kick panel, right there in the middle you will see a big round handle, turn it and then slide it out, have some towels ready, there will be some water in there, and check to see if you have any thing in there that will slow water flow, tooth picks and other "floating" items may jam the impeller.
