After you have checked the dispencer drawer, open the door, with a flash light look very just in front of the metal drum. You most likely have a small garment stuck between the rubber seal and drum and has clogged the flow detergent flow tube. What happens is a piece of clothing get hung up on the edge of the tube and as the drum changes direction it will push in back and fourth and cause it to work its way up into the flow tube. With some needle nose plies very carefully pull it out slowly and that should take of it.

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.

Water coming out of the detergent compartment


When you take out the drawer you can reach inside and at the front of that compartment there should be an opening where the water goes into. I have seen many times where something is blocking that opening. The only other thing would be something stuck in the hose that attaches to that opening and feeds water to the tub. It sounds impossible but I have pulled underwear and socks out of that hose several times. Best way to access that hose it to take the outer clamp off of the door boot and reach in there, disconnect the hose and pull it out. Getting the clamp back on can be a little tricky if you haven't done it before so it may be best to call for a technician. Hope this helps.

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.
