The dispenser assembly has warped and needs to be accessed from the top.  Remove the top panel to gain access to the dispenser.  The top part of the dispenser can be pried off so you could remove the drawer.

My wirpool duet sport is leaking alot of water out of the detergent compartment whats wrong? Please help


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.

Tip

Dishwasher does not dispense cleaning tablet


The soap dispenser drawer is supposed to open during the cycle. Try first to understand if the drawer is opening or not during cycle.

If the drawer is not opening, then check if the opening mechanism is stuck, if it is blocked by dirt and soap, if it is broken, or if something, for examble a basket too close to dispenser drawer is preventing the drawer from opening.

Some dishwasher works only with powder, in that case indications are given on the owners manual.

If the drawer opens and the table, or powder is still staying stuck in the drawer, then that means that the spray does not have enough power to solve the tablet.
In that case check spray arms and impeller pump.Also check water temperature.

If the problem is also happening with powder, then it is probably a drawer not opening on cycle.

Tablet drawer,dispenser wont open at all


Hi, well you we need to check the ribbon cable in the door lining to make sure that none of the cables have been broken with the movement of the door. If they are fine then you should replace the dispenser unit if you are getting 240v to the dispenser solinoid.
Get back if you have further problems...................?

Detergent dispenser drawer stuck


You may have to remove the washer top (three phillips screws at the back, then push top back about two inches and lift it off) then drill a hole in the top of the plastic dispenser to allow you to use an object like a screwdriver to maneuver the offending part around so it will drop down and allow you to open the dispenser drawer. Use foil tape to seal hole if you don't want to buy a new dispenser. Clean out blue plastic dispenser parts so detergent will siphon out completely. Pushing down on the center tab at the back of the dispenser should allow you to take the dispenser drawer the remainder of the way out. In the future, make sure you do not use over 1 tablespoon of HE soap (and 1 teaspoon of fabric softner) max per load. Even less if you have 2x or more detergent.

Freezer Drawer won't open on Kenmore 22" Bottom Freezer Refrigerator


Try raising the door. It may be off the roller tracks inside. If you get it to open you'll find the problem. These tracks are like kitchen drawer tracks.
