This leak is terrible. I wonder what's causing it. I've never seen anything like this

I wonder when the last time they cleaned the dispenser was? All that water is coming from it, did you notice that when the fill stopped the "leak" form the door stopped as well. I'de wonder if the bleach or fabric softener bit are plugged up and the water is flowing up and out instead of out the back of the tray?

She keeps saying it's leaking from the tub. It's not. All the leaking is from the dispenser drawer. The flow is running around the door which appears to be coming from the tub (bottom of the door).

She posted a vid in Jan too showing it clearly pouring out of the dispenser drawer. I can't believe she continues to use it leaking that much water. I sure looks like a problem with the drawer. I would not be leaking from the tub like that.

I puzzled why that can't be fixed?

Not there. Don't know. But....appears to be pretty easy diagnosis to me. That dispenser drawer is open gravity-feed into the tub. Something is obstructing. Clean it out and it will work fine. Not worth making a video over.

She posted in Dec as well and states they changed the dispenser so it must be a blockage in the hose from the tray to the outer tube, or the back of the washer it way higher then the front and needs leveled.
