Samsung Washing Machine Leaking From Soap Dispenser

However, if the pressure is too high, it can cause water to leak from your washer’s soap tray. Check your manual to learn the water pressure needed by your washer.

Water will also leak from your soap dispenser if you use detergent that wasn’t made for washing machines. If excessive foaming occurs, water will be forced out of the detergent drawer.

If you notice your Samsung washing machine leaking from the back vent. It means that there is excess foaming going on. If you put too much detergent in your washer during a cycle, it will produce a large amount of suds. As a result of this, the water will be forced out of any available opening.

To Resolve this issue, run a Self Clean cycle with no laundry in the drum. If your washer doesn’t have the Self Clean feature, you can simply run a Rinse cycle. This will wash out any detergent that may have built up in the washer.

Another thing you need to do is reduce the quantity of soap you use when washing. This will minimize the amount of suds that will form. You should also be sure to use only HE (High Efficiency) detergent. This type of detergent is specifically made for washing machines. It also does not produce as much foam as normal detergent.

What Causes A Samsung Washing Machine To Leak?

Here are the various things that could cause your Samsung washing machine to leak water…

Defective Drain Pump

The drain pump is responsible for pumping out waste water from the washer’s drum into your home drain.

If this pump is cracked or damaged, water will leak out from it instead of going into the home drain. To avoid even more damage, it is advised that you replace a defective drain pump as soon as possible.

Using Too Much Detergent

If you put too much detergent into your washer during a cycle, it will produce a large quantity of suds. If these suds build up enough, they will force water out of any available opening.

It is advised that you consult your owner’s manual to learn the proper quantity of soap to use per wash. Another important thing for you to remember is that not all types of detergent are for washing machines. Ensure that you only use High Efficiency detergents when washing.

HE detergents don’t produce as much foam as normal detergents. However, you will still need to keep an eye on the quantity of soap you use.

Improper Drain Hose Installation

This is probably the most common cause of leakage problems in washing machines. If your washer’s drain hose isn’t securely connected to the drain pump, water will leak from the connection.

Water leakage can also occur on the other end of the drain hose if it isn’t properly installed. Ensure that the hose hasn’t been inserted more than 8 inches into your home drain. It also shouldn’t be inserted less than 6 inches.

Finally, ensure that an airtight connection hasn’t been formed between the drain hose and your home drain. This will ensure that water won’t leak out from the drain hose.

Samsung Washing Machine Leaking From Back

If your Samsung washing machine is leaking from the back, it means that there is an issue with your water supply connection.

Go to the back of your washing machine and turn off the water and power supply. After this, inspect your water supply hose/hoses for any holes or tears. If you notice any damage, replace the hose.

Next, you need to inspect the little black ring around the nozzle of the water inlet hose. This ring (known as the O ring) ensures a secure connection between the water inlet hose and the inlet port at the back of the washer. If this ring is damaged, it will need to be replaced.

Ensure that you properly tighten the connection between the inlet hose and the washer in order to avoid leakage. Once you’ve done all this, you can turn on your washer’s water and power supply.
