    My LG WM2277 front loading washer occasionally leaks out of the
    dispenser drawer before I get a chance to close the drawer! The
    leaking bleach runs down inside, as well as down the outside, of the
    washing machine.

    I called LG, who sent out a service technician. The technician stated
    that he was familiar with the problem. The solution, he said, was to
    NOT fill bleach/detergent/softener all the way up to the MAX fill
    lines. Otherwise the siphon tube will suck all the fluid out of the compartment, and because the drawer hasn't yet been closed the fluid
    will flow right down into and along the front side of the machine.
    Some of the bleach that spills inside the machine collects in a pool,
    which remains until a subsequent wash cycle when it flows into the drum
    and destroys clothing by putting bleach spots in it.

    Although over the past year since the service call I have tried not to
    fill the bleach all the way up to the max fill line when running loads
    it was nearly impossible to not make a mistake once in a while. The
    bleach compartment is very small and the funnel on top of the
    compartment makes it very difficult to see inside the compartment and
    gauge just how high the bleach level is, so inevitably the bleach will
    reach the max fill line despite my best effort not to fill it so.

    Recently I have noticed that rust is bubbling up through the enamel
    coating on the front of my washing machine just below the dispenser
    drawer. Apparently the bleach, which is highly corrosive, has rusted
    the washing machine from the inside out.

    Anyone else having these issues?

    I only put a small amount of bleach and I've ruined over 100 worth of new clothes I'm sick of it jacki lamphire

    We have the LG WM3570HWA front loading washing machine. We premeasure bleach into a no-drip cup. Less then 3/4 of MAX capacity. Always check to ensure bleach container is empty before adding bleach. Still leaks, By the time we realized this was happening,
    the upper left corner of LG washing machine is rusting.

    I have the same issues with our LG Tromm WM2688HWM. And yes, the corner under the dispenser rusted and we get random unpredictable bleach spotting.

    Got mine used and already rusted. It seems, since this is supposed to be excellent brand, something so common as adding bleach or fabric softener would be a lot easier and fail safe. You really need one of those long spouted fancy watering cans to fill
    the containers without spilling any. The top dispenser would prevent you from stacking the machines.
