Try removing the dispenser drawer and with the door open pour some water into the dispenser housing and see if it runs into the drum, if it DOES run into the drum the you have a dispenser housing issue.if it DOES NOT run it to the drum their is a plastic pipe that runs from the dispenser housing to the rubber boot that lets the water into the basket,a few times I have seen these get cloged with a item of clothing preventing water from draining into the washer Good luck

Water leaking from detergent drawer


The first thing to do is take note of what the washer is doing when water leaks out in order to help pinpoint the cause. Does it only leak when filling? Is it leaking during wash or rinses? Or is it leaking only when it goes into spin?

Only leaks when filling

  • Water pressure that's too strong. Some dispensers can't cope with high water pressure. Make sure the washer is level as one leaning forward can leak if combined with high water pressure. Try turning the tap on the washer down. Only suspect this if you know the water pressure is high and it looks like it's gushing in quite fast on fill
  • If there is an optional detergent flap fitted in the drawer for holding liquid detergent make sure it is removed or drawn into the up position if using powder otherwise it prevents detergent running down into the drum
  • A build up of grease and slime in the nozzles at the top of the dispenser where the water flows in causing water to spray at the front and run out when filling. Check this article -black jelly-like substance in soap dispenser and on soap drawer (In extreme cases I've had to replace the dispenser.)
  • A build up of undissolved detergent in the base of the soap dispenser under the drawer (depending on the design). Remove the soap drawer and check the bottom of the soap dispenser for a build up of detergent that could allow water to run over the lip of the dispenser
  • Blocked dispenser hose: Some washing machines can flood water out of the soap dispenser if the hose leading out of the dispenser into the tub gets blocked. Blockages can be something put into the drawer by a child or a chunk of undissolved detergent tablet. Indesit, and Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and it wasn't wide enough. Undissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor water pressure can block this hose solid causing water to back up. Unplug machine, remove lid and feel this hose carefully for obstructions.
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts to fill and never stops it will flood out of the drawer eventually - Washing machine overfills
Leaks out of drawer during the wash or rinse cycle
  • Too many suds? If you can see the door glass is white with foam up to the top it could be foaming out of the dispenser. Too much foam in the washing machine
  • Overfilling: If the washer starts washing but the water doesn't stop coming in it will eventually fill the drum so much it will start to pour out of the soap drawer and other places. If this is the fault you should be able to see the drum is so full of water it's making a different sound, maybe labouring under the load, and the door glass full to the top with water. You should also hear that water is still running into the machine and be able to detect it by opening the drawer. However, in most cases an over filling washing machine should trigger an error code long before it gets to this stage but if you suspect overfilling check this page - Washing machine overfills
  • Surging: There are (often intermittent) faults that can cause the motor to spin out of control on wash or rinses. Instead of turning slowly the fault causes the motor to surge into spin instead which throws the laundry and all the water about violently. Water can then be forced out of the soap dispenser drawer. This fault should be relatively rare these days but if you observe this behaviour call an engineer to diagnose the cause.
Leaks from drawer only when spinning
  • If it only comes out on spin it can be caused by a partial blockage preventing the water being pumped out fast enough resulting in excess water being thrown around on spin and backing up into the dispenser. This fault is similar to the surging fault described in the last list but different in that the problem only occurs when it's on a proper spin cycle and much of the water has been pumped away. Troubleshooting this fault is all about finding out why it isn't emptying the water properly which is usually due to a partial blockage. Follow the same troubleshooting as described for a washer not pumping any water out at all - Washing machine won't empty water
  • If water is being forced out of the drawer when the washer is spinning but it is on wash or rinse and shouldn't be spinning follow the procedure for surging in the previous section above

My washer is flooding water out of the soap dispenser and not going into the tub where the clothes are


Washing machines, whether top load or front load types, have a tendency to build up back pressure through the soap dispenser if the pipe/chute is clogged due to soap build-up being present. Check that the pipe/chute that conveys the soap and water to the drum is not clogged.

Water does not drain from dispenser into tub/drum fast enough


pull out the dispenser,check inside where the dispenser goes into,i found in two washers the white circle piece that's inside the cap to detergent,when water would go in the cap would block the fill tube,if you checked the dispenser and water flows through you have something blocking the fill tube,hopefully the washer and dryer are not stacked,you might have to take the top lid off to get at the fill tube or fill hose to clear it.good luck with your washer

Water in the drum between washes


On top of the washer is where you ad the soap usually. When you are NOT running the washer, open the lid to the soap dispenser and see if you see any water trickling through it. If that is the case, you need to replace the water fill valve that the hoses are attached too.

Water pouring out of the detergent drawer


Remove the dispenser draw and pour water down the soap chute as much as you can to soften any soap causing the blockage. When the water level drops, add more water. After a while use a soft flexible rubber hose and run it down the chute up and down to remove caked soap. Once this has been achieved, run the machine on "Rinse & Spin" to clean out the drum.

Water drains into soap dispenser; how do you prevent this? Mildew smell!


Most home improvement stores sell a washing maching cleaner product - try this or simply run the machine on the longest cycle with 2 cups of bleach added directly to the drum to eliminate the smells. Also check around the seals on the door and drum - lint and small items can collect there and mildew. For the drain problem, ensure that you washer is level or slightly leaning back ( no more than just slightly) and this could fix the problem. If not that, the pathway from the dispenser to the drum could be clogged with dried soap - try flushing it with very hot water while it is open for at least 20 mins. Fill it up, wait to drain, and do it again. You can also remove the soap dispenser tray to clean and take a look behind it with a flashlight - refer to the manual for specifics on how to remove the tray. Good luck!

My candy cna 145 will not let water into drum. all just floods out of soap dispenser


It sounds as though there is a soap powder blockage in the dispenser or the dispenser hose in to the drum.
Try pushing into the hose with something to clear the blockage.
Please rate my solution.

Water and soap remains in the soap tray


You need to check for blockage in dispenser, remove completely and thoroughly clean every part of it.
Other possibility is not enough water pressure to take all powder down, check water pressure, filters in hoses if fitted..
Check hose from dispenser to drum for restriction.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Water overflowing from dispenser, no error codes


check the holes of the dispenser, could be clogged with soap and liquid detergent. check the hose where the dispenser flows to the drum, it could be clogged also. open the door, trace the dispenser hose that is attached to the drum or to the big rubber gasket at the front. check and see if there is dirt accumulation or soap clogging the hole.

LG WM2277HS - water backing up into soap dispenser


The pipe from the soap dispenser to the tub is quite large, it seems as if the water isn't getting out of the dispenser quick enough. Pull the whole dispenser out of the machine. There is a release clip at the back of the cup with the tray fully open. Clean out all soap residue and scum. Sometimes there is also a spot or setting for liquid or powder detergent. Adjust accordingly. Reassemble and try it again.
