My washing machine has water flowing from just under the soap dispenser. I've removed the dispenser and checked the hose, and the little bit I can fee I don't feel a blockage. I'm not sure how to check the rest of the hose to see if a sock or something got stuck in there. Do you have any ideas?
I found the problem. A piece of clothes is stuck between the rubber and the stainless steel revolving enclosing in the upper left area (11 o'clock area). In our case it was the newborn hat! The area is so tight and if your fingers are big, you will have difficulty finding it not to mention pulling it out. In my case only my wife's thin figers were able to pull it out. I called the factory to let them know that this is a design flaued, but they were not taking calls on Sunday. I urge everyone to call them 888-KENMORE and complain. Maybe one day, they will recall the machine! Yeah right!
Dr. Manchester's suggestion was a bulls-eye! Went right to the area recommended and found a piece of clothing trapped exactly in that area. Tough to extract with fingers, but came right out with needle nose pliers. Great solution...saved us a call for repair.

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.
We had water pour out of the dispenser of our Kenmore HE2 washer. hot water helped us for one load then i realize that a trapped rag was the problem We were actually able to pull the face cloth out of the intake tube without taking everything apart! opened the washer door and feel around inside the rubber seals to find where the intake tube connects to the drum (upper-left side). felt a small bit of cloth sticking out of the tube and were able to slowly work it out by pulling back and forth. and pulled it completely out thats all it was try this
Hi dlypooh, thought I would post the solution here as well for anybody who needs to do a search in the future...
Remove the dispenser, pour water into the opening and make sure water
can get into the machine freely. Inspect the opening for soap build up.
If water goes down slowly (re: dlypooh), open the washer door and
feel around the bellow for anything blocking the water inlet port into
the washer (socks can sometimes get wedged up there and cause a
blockage). If it all checks out ok, make sure the machine is properly leveled and not leaning forward. Hope that helps!
there is a spring around door opening that holds bellows on remove it and pull back from inlet opening also possible if you use dry detergent a lump has become lodged in fill line working something from both ends may dislodge it
