Customer Question

We purchased a wfw92hefc washer last month thru Sears. It comes with a Load & Go dispenser as well as the regular. When using the regular dispenser it flows thru directly to the machine door splilling onto the floor. Should there be some sort of filter cap to avoid this happening? Also, when using the load and go dipenser, it filled to the required amount of washing detergent but when the close is closed is displays empty. I would appreciate your assistance in both of these issues.
JA: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: The receipt shows the number above and it is a whirlpool. We purchased and received it on Sept 1,2016.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: What work?
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: NO just these two questions?

ok on the regular dispenser drawer operation if you overfill the dispensers no matter which cup the unit will create a siphon effect and siphon the liquid out and into the washer.

Are you by chance filling it over the fill line?

And on the Load and go dispenser tank . if you fill it and it still shows empty ,With the unit being new I would suspect that you have a loose wire on the tank sensor.

If this unit is just one month old I would contact Whirlpool for a in warranty service call on the unit. so as not to void your warranty.

NO I am not filling it over the line. It drains immediately thru into the rubber circular strip on the door and spills to the floor.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 11 months ago.

ok and when it drains on to the floor you have the door open or closed?

No thanks for What?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 11 months ago.

I suspect your no thanks was for a phone request( which is an auto request from just Answer not I!

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
We are out of sync, however Woody, I'm better off dealing directly with Whirlpool because of the warranty.
