Either there is a sock stuck between the inner tub and the water
inlet to the tub or more likely you have been using to much liquid detergent and cold water wash all the time . This can cause the supply tube below the dispenser to be plugged up. Have fun cleaning it. Warm wash should always be used. Detergent needs the heated water to work properly .
only other possibility is mice building a nest if the washer hasn't
been used in along time.
If you take the drawer out you may be able to gain access to where the clog is, if not remove the lid of the machine and you will see the fill hose from the drawer to the tub. You may be able to remove the pipe without removing the dispenser housing or you may be able to get to the blockage by removing the pipe from the drum.
No what it means are the tubes that carry the solutions are plugged and most likely full of old detergent that hardened. You will need to clean all the plastic tubing out for the dispensers. When your done using the machine always run clean water only through the dispenser and tube to flush out the detergents.
of the time this is a dispenser housing issue. Remove the dispenser tray from washer and make sure it is cleaned very well. In the more serious clogs, you may need to clean the hose from the dispenser to the drum.
sure the detergent dispenser drawer is opening. This issue occurs due
to jammed soap dispenser. Dispenser Distribution System is located in
the top left corner of the washer. The system consists of a motor that
turns a cam gear. The Detergent Dispenser Assembly is located under the washer top. Begin by removing the washer top, console and front panel.
the water inlet and window washer tube from the boot. Pull the water
inlet tube from the outlet connector of the detergent dispenser. NOTE: When reinstalling the water inlet tube, wet the water inlet gasket on the detergent dispenser with
water only. Do not use any other lubricant. Align the tab on
the water inlet tube with the indentation on the dispenser connector and
slide the tube onto the detergent dispenser assembly.
Remove the screw securing the front of the detergent dispenser assembly to the top front frame member.
the vent tube from the detergent dispenser assembly. Remove the screw
securing the detergent dispenser assembly to the top left frame member.
Slide the assembly back slightly and lift the assembly out.
To remove the detergent dispenser motor assembly,disconnect the cam follower spring and lift the cam follower from the diverter cam and rotate the diverter cam clockwise to access the motor
mounting screws. Check for all the connections to the dispenser motor
or anything obstructing the dispenser drawer functioning.
Pull the diverter out and clean it, including the shaft, spring, etc.
Dumped even more HOT HOT HOT water while poking around inside dispenser. Softener dispenser suddenly became unclogged and water began running out of the opening showing me that the dispenser was indeed clogged with softener buildup.
Hello, I worked on a problem like this a few days ago.
Your problem is going to be a blockage in the inlet to the drum. To fix this problem find the inlet pipe normally located above the door behid a flap of rubber..push your fingers up there to see if you can feel a blockage..If not your going to have to remove the lid of the machine to access the pipe that leads from the detergent drawer to the tub.
Look at the rear top of the machine..You will see three screws....remove them and push back and lift the top panel (lid) now you should be able to access the pipe.
Pull the pipe off and clean it out, i suspect you will find a sock blocking the pipe :)
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck! Mike
It is probably because your Smart Dispenser is full of water and there may be a clog of some type in the pump. Try purging your Smart Dispenser and see if it fixes the problem!! It fixed ours!!
