Leaking from Dispenser - Front Load Washer

Possible Solution

Are you using Single Dose Laundry Packets?

If using Single Dose Laundry Packets (such as Tide Pods), be sure to follow all manufacturer's instructions. Place the packet inside the basket before adding clothes. Never place the packet in the dispenser drawer.

Is the Dispenser drawer completely closed?

The dispenser drawer must be completely closed, as water flushes through it during use. If not, it could easily leak from around the dispenser area onto the floor.

Is the Dispenser drawer clogged?

A clogged dispenser can block the flow of water through the dispenser and cause water to leak. Manually remove the dispenser, and clean any remaining detergent or additives that could clog the water flow through the dispenser.
