REASONS TO MAINTAIN DISPENSER
DRAWER CLEAN AT ALL TIMES
Have you cleaned dispenser drawer?
■ Using too much detergent or regular detergent instead of High Efficiency (HE) detergents for
front-loading washing machines may create excessive suds inside the tub which can affect
spinning and rinsing not to mention overabundant suds inevitably bound to escape washer
through slightest crack, fall to the ground then eventually result in a small puddle of water.
■ Also, detergent residue can remain in the tub and come out through the drain hose with foam.
■ Too much use of fabric softener, especially very viscous type, may leave a residue at the end
of the dispenser drawer that risk solidifying and building into a ridge preventing the water from
fully dispensing next time around.
How to fix
■ Adequate amount of detergent should be used.
Detergent residue in the dispenser drawer can flow into the tub during rinsing, creating suds or,
if cannot be dissolved, act as a piece of chalk that will stain clothing during the wash. Although
below illustration may get misconstrued as misleading, it is highly recommended that any
powdered detergent be put inside the tub along with the load to wash.
