How old is the unit?

Is it leaking detergent from the smart dispenser , or from the bottom of the unit?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
The model for was purchase in 2009 .. It seems to be leaking out the back of the pedestal .. We just ok the drawer off and the floor is covered in old hard soap .. So I don't know how long it has been leaking
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 month ago.

ok so it is actual detergent that is leaking then .

So I will assume that it is from the dispenser itself!!

And which that would mean that the dispenser probably has a crack in it and will need to be replaced.

Since you are in Canada and I`m in the U.S I can not bring up your exact model number ,to be able to give you a part number .

But from what you are saying if it is just detergent and not water also it has to be the detergent tank that is leaking.

t is defiantly detergent .. We pulled the drawer right out and my floor is about covered with about 1/2 thick old soap .. It has been leaking for some time
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 month ago.

ok so then I would suggest that the dispenser tank be replaced ,that is the most likely part that is causing the leak.
