I checked out a Maytag Bravos washer today where water had been appearing toward the right-front area under the machine when in use. What I found was that the detergent dispenser seems to be overflowing with water when it fills in the beginning of the cycle (maybe about 30-45 seconds into the cycle after it's started).

 

There is nothing clogging the dispenser--what it looks like is that the water pressure is so powerful that it's filling the dispenser faster than it can allow it to drain down into the tub. The machine is not even 2 years old, and the problem just started in the past week or 2. I'm pretty stumped here, has anyone else run into this? Any suggestions what can be done to fix it?

For reference, here's the dispenser that is getting overflowed with water: Part number: AP4365163

Part number: AP4365163

 

Again, the model is MVWB850YW0.

 

Thanks!

Trevor

Oh geez, it was the *front-left* area on the floor where the water was appearing--under the location of the detergent dispenser.  :turned: Anyways, I'm planning on heading back there to take another look at it today most likely, I'll report back with any more info I can gather.
