Having an unusual problem with an Asko WM200 (20004) washing machine. For some reason, when the washing cycle starts water spews out of the laundry detergent loading cups. I've pulled the top off the machine, and nothing seems disconnected or broken. If I place the spray heads into a bucket, they appear to do their job (spray water downwards with great force). The valves seem to be functioning, switching from one spray head (the softener cup) to the other (the detergent cup).

Has anyone seem this type of malfunction before? There doesn't seem to be a gasket for the drawer that holds the laundry detergent and softener compartments....

Is there a pressure reduction system somewhere in this machine? Any other ideas?

Later in the day edit: I'm suspecting there's an orifice or something in the spray heads. We did have some air in our lines that may have sent a pressure pulse into the washer. Since the valves are still switching, I'm going to try and replace the cheap parts first......

ANOTHER update. Found bits of broken plastic and a rubber grommet in the machine side of the supply line. Thinking that it might be a pressure reducing fixture. Does anyone know if this is part of the supply line or is actually part of the water inlet valve?

Replaced the water inlet valve shortly after the last post, problem solved. For now.
