Liquid detergent cup on Samsung WF419AAW/XAA washer

6 posts in this topic

A strange thing is happening with the liquid detergent dispenser cup on this washer.  Every few cycles, I am finding the cup full of water at the end of the cycle/beginning of the next cycle.  It seems like it is supposed to work by siphoning the water/detergent.  When it's full of water, I take it to the sink, clean it out and it works fine again (tests ok at the sink).  Yet every couple of cycles, it doesn't work correctly.  Do you think the detergent isn't dissolving and blocking the siphon tube/riser?

Did this just start?  Cold weather depending where you live will lower water temps, so if you wash in cold the detergent wont dissolve very well

Yes--it started recently so water temperature could be a factor.  Doesn't the machine add hot water even on a cold cycle to maintain a certain temp?

I've seen this problem on ALL the front load washers except the Whirlpool Duets because Whirlpool was smart enough to use a motor to divert the correct detergent and water mix rather than just siphoning them out.
