The pressure setting on your pressure switch has went out of calibration causing the machine to overfill. If you take the lid off by removing the 2 screws at the rear and sliding it back the pressure switch is underneath on the left. Try unscrewing the larger screw in the middle anticlockwise 1 full turn i.e 360 degrees and try a wash . If it still does it the try 1 more turn. If it still happens then you will need to replace the switch. Hope this helps.

Dispenser - which tray to use for liquid detergent?


Liquid goes straight into the wash before you put it on, you can get a liquid ball that you fill and put in with the wash, dispenser just for powder which goes in 2 or fabric softner.

Washer finishes but hasn't dispensed softener. I've removed the tray and washed it thoroughly. Cleaning out the holes wiped inside of machine out checked the little holes they appear to not be blocked.


The softner is siphoned out by water effectively overflowing the area that you put it in. The tube is quite small, so it easily gets clogged with spilled powder. If you can take it out and separate it, tunr it upside down for a good clean too. You can get the effect by overfilling from the tap and the try should slowly empty.

Alternatively, you may not be sending water to the tray, so blocked nozzle (powder again) or stuck valve.

Hello sir,i have a kenmore series 90 washer & dryer.this specific machine has top dispensing detergent/bleach&softner.when it becomes time for the softner to be dispensed on the re-fill the machine...


PLease check the hose that goes from the INLET VALVE to the dispensing system cup on your washer. This hose probably has a hole or the plastic dispensor is cracked and therefore leaking.
The inlet valve is working and when the time comes the water goes to the dispensing cup, so the system is working it is just the hose, dispensing cup or both.

Indesit WIE147 leaking from soap dispenser


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.

Bad leak


Your first option before anything else is to remove the dispenser tray entirely and clean it thoroughly.
Also clean inside where the fits before replacing.
Quite often there is a build up of old fluids or powders that have congealed and blocked up the inside.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Fabric Softener does not syphon and water leak from front of dawer.


The detergent/softner dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distributed to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle) by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next test !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!
