Washer is leaking water from the soap dispenser. I've taken the dispenser drawer out and nothing in the dispenser is blocking water flow. How do I check the tube that goes into the washer?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Duet Sport approximately 10 years old.

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

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The washer and dryer are stacked and are in a closet, so access is a little limited.

Is this something I can fix or do I need to call a service tech in to do the repair?
It is fairly easy to replace. You will need to unplug the unit, then remove the top panel. It is just under neath itYou can order it from apdepot.com, marcone, repairclinic.com or even whirlpool to save you money

The only problem I'm going to have is getting the washer and dryer out of the closet and then getting the dryer off of the washer. I'm a relatively strong female, but it's not something I'm comfortable doing by myself. I think I'll call a technician in to do the repair.
