Oh great one, once again I come seeking wisdom. A friends Whirpool front load duet washer circa 2006 started leaking a little now it's a flood. I searched the forums but can't find anything. Just after start water starts coming out the upper left front where the soap load tray pulls out. When I remove the tray and run the cycle the drain area starts filling then overflows. If I shut it off I notice the water slowly goes down. I made sure the unit is level and called Whirlpool, useless, they are no help. Do you have any advise?

That is an open passageway....if it is backing up and flooding, something is in there blocking it...suspect a sock or some other small garment stuck where it spills into the tub,,,

You've got a sock or something stuck in the fill hose where it enters the outter tub from the dispenser.

Remove the top and look down the front of the dispenser assembly for a black hose. Pull it off from the tub (its a pressure fit) and you'll find your clothing item there.

Reinsert the hose and make sure it is in snug and not rubbing on the inner drum when u spin it and yer good to go.

Thanks,

How would a sock get in there, must be the eternally missing sox that goes into the dryer black hole. Not sure how to remove the top, I took took the back panel off and can see the black hose. if I look inside the washer drum I cant see where the soap tray drain comes into the tub. I will go stick my head in again and look at the top for how to remove.

I have found the white foam disc that you find under the cap of some laundry products, like a bleach jug. Or, it is plugged due to the pillow pack soap pods being put in the dispenser instead of inside with the clothes.

You would be surprised what you'll find.  Pulled a paper towel out of a Samsung water inlet.  Sure, it was a Bounty but still.

open the door, look between the rubber door boot the the drum around the 10 o'clock position, socks will get stuck there and block the incoming water flow

Dang!  That's not right!  lol.  

 

My best one is after pulling a g-string out of the pump of a Cabrio, the Mrs. of the house exclaims 'that's not mine!!!'  lol.  I suspect hubby had some explaining to do that night.  lol.

Pull dispenser tray out and check the housing.

I had one last week with a one inch crack/ hole in it.

Looked like tub must have been way off balance and smashed into housing.

Found a sock plugging the water inlet on the tub side . Used a coat hanger to fish it out from between the spin basket and the tub. Also found a g-string in the drain lint catcher an a Duet. When I showed the very thong worthy costumer Her comment was “I thought the Maid stole that “

:wink:
