LG Washing Machine Leakage - Detergent Dispenser

Troubleshooting
LG Washing Machine Leakage - Detergent Dispenser

Dispenser leaks are normally caused by the following:

  • Obstruction in the dispenser or dispenser compartment.
  • Detergent or additive buildup in the dispenser.
This can be resolved by cleaning the dispenser drawer. Debris or additive buildup can prevent detergent from dispensing properly and cause the compartment to overfill and leak.



Remove the Detergent Dispenser

Fully extend the detergent dispenser drawer outwards.

Press down the PUSH button between the bleach and fabric softener compartments to release the detergent dispenser drawer.

Carefully remove each compartment (lift the front side first as the tabs on the rear are delicate).
