SOURCE: LEAKING DISPENSER DRAWER
Refer to your manual regarding the dispenser tray. You could try using a tooth brush to clean out dry detergent, which could be blocking the flow of water. You can take out tray to clean, ref manual.

I'm not familiar with your machine but usually there are nozzles above the soap drawer which squirt the water on to the detergent compartments at the appropriate times . If you can take out the soap tray have a look to see if the nozzle bit has come loose and is pointing towards you...also check that the outlets from the soap tray are not clogged with...soap.
Failing that, you could partially turn off the water supply to the machine so the pressure is reduced. Sure it will take longer to fill, but you won't get so wet.
Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.

try taking the drawer out and clean it thoroughly, including the underside of the drawer, then clean the inside of the machine where the drawer fits into. Sometimes a build up of dertergent can casue this problem

I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.

Because ASKO washers use less water than conventional top-loading washers, you need less detergent and fabric softener. We recommend that you use a low-sudsing powder detergent only, preferably a high-efficiency (HE) detergent designed specifically for front-loading washers.
**(Liquid detergents tend to suds more, which make them more difficult to rinse out.)**
Detergent - The amount of detergent needed varies, depending on the detergent you use. For high-efficiency detergent specifically for front-loading washers, you should use the amounts recommended by the manufacturer.
Also, the amount of detergent needed can vary due to differences in water hardness. (Refer to the Use and Care Guide for more details.) If you choose to use a liquid detergent, start out with a very small amount, such as one or two tablespoons.
Hope that answers your question, let me know please.Thanks for choosing FixYa for your repair solutions today. Let me know if you need further assistance.
Please take a moment and rate the solution provided for you as well as a testimony if you feel it warranted.
