We had the same problem, It was a pair of sock stuck behind the seal in the drum blocking the water inlet to the drum. Like others we managed to get our fingers between the metal of the drum and the rubber seal near the detergent dispensor to remove the sock.

Your water pressure may be a liitle too high for the machine to handle. Try turning the water valves for the hot and cold water down a bit to reduce the pressure and try it again.

There's a hose or tube that goes from the dispenser cavity to the tub that is likely clogged. Small clothing can be siphoned into the hose or tube and block the water path causing it to leak out to the dispenser drawer. Locate the hose/tube port in the tub where the blockage may be located, if not, you have to remove the front panel fully access and take the hose/tube out for inspection.
Disconnect power then remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the machine and slide it rearward and off. Remove the dispenser drawer then the screws securing the console to the machine cabinet. Lift the console off then remove the screws securing the front panel to the cabinet. Slightly lean the front panel forward and disconnect the door lock and switch assembly wire harness. Remove the front panel and set it it aside. The hose/tube can now be fully accessed for inspection. Reassemble the machine in reverse order of the disassembly steps.

This product has to be my most hated product in the entire house. We have had nothing but issues with this piece of junk. 2 days ago water and foam started pouring out the soap dispenser and across the laundry floor. Not to anyones surprise as this machine has been a dud for 2 years.
So i finally got to looking at this tonight, and was blown away by a) what tiny little thing caused it, and b) the simplicity of it (did it in 1/2 hour) when I thought this was going to be a all night job with 1000 parts across the floor.
How its done:
Notes: Dont lose the screws in the soap box down the tube, its a absolutely huge job to open the drum. Put a towel ontop of the floor drain in your laundry, its a icky job to retrieve that!
Good luck, and never buy a Whirlpool machine again!
