Re: why dont my machine take the soap powder
Assuming that the bit the water is going into is the prewash dispenser (rather than a bleach or conditioner dispenser), why not just put the powder into there?
Some of these machines can be a bit illogical about where the main wash powder is meant to go - sometimes even varies depending on which cycle you're running.
If you can find a place that will take the powder at the right time, your problem is solved. If the instructions say different, it might even be them that's wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.

The problem is not a leaking soap container. The problem is that it is overflowing because the line from it to the washer tub is clogged. This happens mostly when using powdered detergents. Check you operating instructions for soap dispenser cleaning procedures.
They are trying to make money off you!!!!!!! LIQUID!!!! Dont ever!!! use powder soap in your front loader. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and then gets into the bearings of the washer and eats them away! This caused about a 450 dollar repair for your repairman. Never use powder soap.
Did the problem start directly after the washine machine was fixed ? I wonder if when the washing machine was moved back, the hose to the dishwasher has become trapped and kinked behind the washing machine. Or maybe the supply to the dishwasher is separate to the washing machine and has been turned off by mistake.
Depending on which compartment the powder is remaining in, it could be low water pressure causing the problem.
If it is taking some down, but not all the powder, then try putting the powder towards the front of the compartment.
If all else fails then I suggest you get one of these dispenser balls that you put straight in the drum with the washing.
Plz rate this solution.
hi this is a ten minute job take your lid off your machine and then take you soap drawer out there are 2 screws in the behind the soap drawer undo these unclip the top board as you look in side the machine and put the fasia in a safe place now you will have two screws on the top of machine from where you just took the facia off and 2 underneath the bottom by removing the plastic kicker plate undo these and open the door to the right you will see 2 screws that hold the interlock in remove these and then remove the band around the door seal normally metal with spring now lift the front of the machine upwards and that will be the front off now unclip the door seal from inside and check for holes if ok soak in bleach over night and rinse in the morning try some descaler to remove and limescale when you use machine again total 10 screws to undo really easy goodluck and please leave feedback
