Hello, I'm Joel thank you for your interest in our service. If you have been waiting a while I apologize we try to help as many customers as possible in a timely manner. I am now available to help you with your question.

You will need to remove the drawer and check for a clog in the hole in the bottom of the housing or blockage where the water enters the dispenser. If you are not having any error codes that should be the problem.

If you are hearing a grinding noise or are getting error codes it could be a bad diverter.

although this is not your washer model in this video it is the same concept, it should give you an idea of what is happening and how to get the leak stopped if it is not mechanical in nature.
