LG Washer dispenser leak
« on: July 29, 2013, 11:59:42 AM »

I am working on a LG washer mod # WM3875HWCA that leaks everytime it shoots water thru the dispenser, this happened very quickly and everything is very clean, ie: dispenser hoses etc.

Lower water pressure will allow the spray to be directed at more of an angle towards the drawer front rather than strait down. Check inlet screens and clean them. If its pouring back out after a few minutes of fill, clear hose/shroom valve/ outer tub connection

Pull the dispenser drawer out and look down towards the rubber hose.  Check for obstruction.  If you don't see anything there, pull the top off and disconnect the fill hose from the top of the tub for any obstruction.  There is something blocking the flow of water into the tub.
