SOURCE: Top Load Kenmore Elite Bleach Dispenser Leaking

I have this same problem today and did not need to take off the top panel or remove the front panel/housing. The bleach and frabric softener dispenser snaps right out and you can check the tubing and clamp from there. You will need to remove the top panel if you need to replace the tubing. In my case, there is a crack in the dispenser itself which has ruined several loads of laundry over the past year...now I realize it wasn't the clamp and hose, but the dispenser itself. Check them all while you are at it.

SOURCE: Kenmore front load washer will not dispense fabric softner

I've had this same problem and solved it by removing the detergent/bleach/softener dispenser drawer from the machine and seriously cleaning out all of the "gunk" from the drawer and from inside the drawer area on washer. Sometimes I have had to repeat the cleaning and then the fabric softener begins dispensing again. I have model # 417.43042200 but it may work on all the Kenmore front loading washers.

SOURCE: kenmore front load washer is leaking water from soap

We had a similar problem with water coming out of the soap dispenser when the washer was run. I assumed that it was a problem with the water draining as everyone else posted here. I took off the front panel, got rid of the junk and drained it. Although this was great, it did not solve the original problem. It turns out that there was a sock stuck in between where the water comes out of the soap dispenser and in to the main compartment. Pulled it out with a needle nose plier and good to go. Thanks to everyone for their input here.

Either the cylenoid to let the water in is bad.
Or the hose from the dispenser to the drum is clogged.
Most common with powder detergents.
Some really hot water poured into the dispenser may
solve the problem.

Inside the dispenser drawer, at the bottom there is a tab that you can push down to remove the dispenser drawer. Remove the drawer and check if the dispenser holes are clogged, this is a common cause.

I am getting an F30 flashing on my washer. Why


Please check the full model number of the washer. Kenmore appliances are built by other manufacturers and the fault code will depend on that manufacturer.

However, the F30 code is most likely for a Kenmore washer built by Whirlpool. If this is the case, the code means a problem with the detergent dispenser. The dispenser is controlled by lever that needs to move between two points as the gears go through the cycle. Sometimes the lever gets bent out of position or the control wires (or other items) get into the gears and blocks the motion. Sometimes, you can hear a clicking sound as the dispenser tries to engage. If you take off the top of the washer and then run a wash cycle, you can observe this action. Check what may be blocking the dispenser and adjust things so that everything moves freely. If that fails to solve the problem, replace the dispenser.

If the washer is under warranty, contact Kenmore. Most Kenmore appliance parts are available from Sears Parts Direct . However, you will need the full model number. (The model number has a 3 digit prefix that indicates the manufacturer. The last 8 digits are the product model. There will be a period after the first three digits. Most front load washers will have the model number inside the door on the frame.)

If you post a comment with the complete model number, I'll be glad to offer additional help and the exact parts diagram for your washer.

Softener does not dispense and we get a code F 30


This error code F30 flashes when the central control unit (CCU) cannot drive the dispenser motor to the proper dispensing position and hence the softener dispensing problem. Disconnect power then remove the top panel and check the dispenser motor assembly for damage or broken parts. You may run a diagnostic test then take a look at the dispenser motor and observe how it behaves. Replace the dispenser motor assembly if damaged.

My HE washer doesn't dispense the fabric softner


Try removing the dispenser cup - and washing the inner cup thoroughly- run a sanitary cycle with whites and chlorine bleach mold and mildew likes to haunt these front loaders - be sure to run a bleach hot water cycle once weekly

Kenmore elite washer model 20952992 pouring water


We had the same problem. The bleach dispenser tray is located on the drum below the bleach storage pan. The dispenser tray has very small holes that were plugged by rust from the hose clamp that attached the dilution water supply hose to the bleach storage pan. I removed the top of the washing machine to discover the problem, but it may be solved by attaching a flexible tube or small hose to the end of a vacuum cleaner hose and cleaning out the dispenser tray. There is room between the dispenser tray and the storage pan and is located in the front right corner.

Softener tray filling with water


open the dispenser all the way,place your finger towards the back left of dispenser.you should see a tab,depress the tab and pull entire dispenser cup out.the bleach and fab soft part of the disp has a removable tray.clean all pieces out including the long shafts on the insert.you will more than likely find a build up of softener,this breaks the siphon and does not allow the water to drain out.good luck
