where are they located on the machine. I am elderly, the washer is stacked under the dryer, and I am not sure I can move enough things to find the data plate. We bought the washer in 2003 when we moved into the house, if that would help ...
Expert:  Chas replied 2 years ago.
When you open the door of the unit it should be on a label there along with the serial number.

This model is known for this to happen, What happens a small piece of clothing like a sock gets between the inner and out tub, and it works it;s way you to the dispenser opening clogging it up and causing the filling water to come out the front of the dispenser, however to repair it you would need to take the dryer down and then remove the top of the washing machine so access can be made to remove the item from the end of the hose, You may be better off calling for a repair service like A&E FActory Service @ 1.800.905.9505 to do this for you,,,
