Customer Question
How do I clean...

How do I clean the bleach dispenser on an LG top load High efficency washer - draining is slow.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your LG is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Maybe 4 years - can not see amodel number

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it is easy enough. I have taken the dispenser top off and know how to release the inner dispenser but not how to get it out from the machine

Hello, I’m ray and would be happy to help you. If you pour water into into it slow will it start draining?

I’m thinking maybe the fill valve going to it isn’t putting water into it to make it do the drain suction
