Miaec,

Where does it leak from ?

I presume, from the dispenser drawer, front area ?

Have you removed the drawer and checked for a clog in the fill hole in the bottom of the housing ?

Or clogs or debris in the back of the housing, where the water enters the dispenser ?

Have you looked or checked to see that the unit is level, and not lower in the front ?

Do or did you have any fail codes in the display ?

If all those checks are OK, you may have a bad diverter assembly, but I'd expect to see a fail code as well,

Part number: AP4365357

Part number: AP4365357


Part number: AP3866291

Part number: AP3866291


Part number: AP3866054

Part number: AP3866054


Part number: AP3868475

Part number: AP3868475


I'm pretty sure, you'll find something in the bottom of the housing, if you have the type leak, I think you have.

Good Luck,

Had similar issue, but first sign of trouble was loud grinding noise near top, front left of unit. Probably was the dispenser Actuator as the manual calls it.

Turns out that a sock was lodged in the Dispenser to Tub Hose.

Easy to get to:

1)remove toe panel at bottom of unit
2)remove control panel - 2 screws (1 recessed on left middle side -hex- and another at the bottom middle of the control panel just above the door
3)remove the four screws of the door panel - you can leave the bellow in place for the repair
4)remove the Dispenser to Tub Hose -the thicker black hose that goes into the tub - you'll need to pull with some force

While you have the Toe Panel off, you might as well clean out the Pump filter assembly - simply unscrew the large white plastic knob being sure to have a large bowl to capture the water and grime. I found 3 buttons, a hair pin and 16 cents in change in there!

Hope this saves time/money/aggravations for others!

It was a piece of a towel that got ripped in the washer. It was stuck between the washer and I'm guessing the drain for the detergent dispenser. It was a bit challenging to get it out, but finally managed to do it with a the stake from my son's tent. Thanks for the help! It's back to working! Thanks!

Exclamation Dear rrepairmee

Dear rrepairmee,
I have the exact same problem, but I am having problems understanding your directions. I currently have the toe panel off, but not sure where the control panel is after that? Is the the digital one the front of the machine? Or is it behind the toe panel? I would appreciate any help I am trying to help save my mom another repair bill. I APPRECIATE IT!!! Thanks!!!
