Impossible to say without more information, there are several causes of
flooding from the soap dispenser. Do you use the soap dispenser for
detergent and fabric conditioner? If so, then the hose from the soap
dispenser to the drum could be blocked with detergent residue. To exclude
this, remove the soap dispenser tray and pour a jug of water into the
dispenser - the water should drain freely into the drum. If the water
doesn't drain freely into the drum then you need to unblock the hose.
However, if you don't use the soap dispenser for detergent and fabric
conditioner because you put detergent tablets directly into the drum with
the clothes then the hose is unlikely to be blocked. For general advice on
flooding see http://www.washerhelp.co.uk/diy-repair-help_4.html#cl_q3
