Water leaking during wash cycle


I've had this problem and immediately assumed it was the door gasket. However I actually sat & watched it for a whole cycle & discovered that water was running back out from the soap dispenser area and dripping from the bottom of the washer door. I removed the dispenser tray & discovered an inch of built-up soap had accumulated inside the washer, which was not allowing the water to drain through properly. Once I removed the soap & residue, problem solved.

I have a Frigidaire Gallaxy Series top loading washing machine, 4 years old that seems to be leaking from the bottom. Is this something I can fix myself? THANK YOU.


Before you buy a new $100 door gasket, pull out the soap dispenser tray and look inside the washer where it normally sits. If there is significant soap accumulation (even 3/8 inch), the water can become backed up and trickle down the washer front to the door bottom, making it look like a door leak. Fixed mine this way.

Yes on the dispenser door there is a magnetic switch that looks like a thin black cylinder similar to a short pen . About 1 1/12 long. It may have been dislodged. Make sure the dispenser door is closing all the way.
