Hello my name is***** see you submitted this question about 35 minutes ago, do you still need help?

Where is the answer?
Expert:  kingmz replied 1 year ago.

I have asked you a question if you still wanted help, so I will assume you still need help. Before I can tell you how to open that drawer I will need the model number. The model number is ***** behind the door along the rim of the washer.

A cup inside the drawer has dislodged. There is no easy way to fix that as you cannot access it as the housing it goes into is sealed. The only way you can get this to open is to bang on the dispenser housing by taking the top of the washer off ands see if that cup will reseat. IF that fails then just pull the front off the dispenser (it will break- you have no other option here) and insert a coat hanger or something similar at the top of the dispenser and dislodge the cup so you can open this. You will need to buy another dispenser assembly to replace it since you will have broken the front off.

That would be fine to do.
