Your fabric softener dispenser is either clogged, and won't siphon out fast enough, or the hose that goes from the fabric softener to the tub is clogged.  Easy fix!

this is why liquid softner should never be used, seen it mess up alot of machines, cuz it gets all waxy like and makes a huge mess after a while.

I took front off and cleared the tube, which was not blocked.  Cleaned out the compartment.  The issue is the water fills up the compartment and it overflows even without the blue dispenser pcs in it.  Could it be an issue of sending too much water in?

You may have to take it apart. It may be clogged right where the hose attaches to the front cover of the tub.   

If there is a music store in the area, stop and pick a trumpet cleaner.  They come in all lengths.  It is a flexible steel coil with a tiny brush on the end.  They are fantastic for cleaning small hose's and clogged drains on refrigerators.

You can use white vinegar to break down some of the gunk.

Sometimes that hose is a bugger to get completely clear. It may seem to be clear, as you can blow threw it, but a lot of crap can still be in there.

Thank you all this was our problem also.   Leaked for a month and then we watched and there on the right side of the door only in the rinse cycle the water came running out. Took out the first two plastic parts and it still leaked a little so it is that tube at the bottom.  What a crazy design it turns 90 degrees at the bottom of the a narrowing.  The trumpet cleaner will be acquired tomorrow.   Thanks again for sharing your learning!!  Whirlpool should be required to read these!!!!

Glad to hear you found our site helpful.

I know we have a few members that used a @whirlpool.com email address to register with, so I like to think Whirlpool does visit our forums every now and then.
Hope you find our site helpful.
