How to clean out and unclog the detergent dispenser in an LG front-loading washer

Remove the TOP COVER of the washer (two screws at the rear of the top cover/slide top cover rearward about an inch & lift off).

Facing the front of the washer---on the top/left of the TUB---there's an accordion- type bellows hose that connects the DETERGENT DISPENSER BOX to the TUB.

Loosen the clamp at the TUB connection & pull off the hose.

Remove the MUSHROOM VALVE (shaped like an umbrella).

Clean off scum/slime accumulation/re-install MUSHROOM VALVE.

Clean the area of the hose that the valve comes in contact with (soap curd/scum).

Re-attach hose and test washer.
