Front Load Washer Dispenser Problems

If you are having Dispenser problems Check the Following

Most dispenser problems are due to being gummed up with detergent, fabric softner, bleach residue, and water deposits. First check the dispenser drawer by pulling it out of the dispenser itself. To do this push down on the tab in the back and remove. Check that all is thoroughly clean. No holes blocked up. Now there are several types of dispensers out there but most have holes in the top where it dispenses hot or cold water to the appropriate area. These holes can become plugged up. If you have really hard water I would say replace the dispenser if it is gummed up bad. Otherwwise remove the dispenser and thoroughly clean it out. Before doing this check the solenoids that allow water through the dispenser. The solenoids can be checked with an ohmeter but if all is clean and the solenoid does not open to allow flow replace the unit or solenoid. Connect your ohmeter and refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading. You can also check for voltage going to the solenoid. If you have voltage when each solenoid should be working, example: When the machine should be dispensing fabric softner, The solenoid that allows water to flow through that area should have voltage. If it does replace the solenoid or unit.
