Bleach leaking on floor

Hi
most of the time our bleach dispensor works well but twice now we had have a small puddle of bleach end up on the floor in front of the washer and both times unfortunately our daughter sat in it and ruined her clothes! Why would we have an intermittent leak on the floor? Is the dispensor plugged and not dispensing? If it is plugged what would make more fluid add to the dispensor so it overflows? Or, is it that the bleach is draining when it is supposed to but somehow is leaking out of a tube or isn't lined up with the drain hole? Someone must know how to prevent this? I appreciate any advice!!

    I have the same problem that has occurred several times. I have noticed that the bleach is not dispensing at all, but proceeds to drain upon opening the detergent drawer. Some of the bleach drained to the floor and some into the washer on the next load of laundry (ruined a shirt)

    The floor in front has liquid/not sure if it is bleach or not but a paddle has been found on many washes. Please help?

    I had this problem and checked for build-up on the dispensers as recommended by LG, but no build-up. I believe the problem is casued by the front of the dispenser drawer tipping down when extended to add bleach. I stopped this by holding it level as I added bleach and pushed the drawer back into place. So you need to add detergent first then lift the front of drawer to level it then add bleach. When the drawer is extended and tips down the bleach drains from it's compartment and should run into the machine but since the drawer is tipped the bleach runs out the back and dribbles to the front of the drawer. It is a problem with their design there should be a rubber flap or something to assure this does not occur.

Hiya was a bit puzzled at this one ? but will try to help not certain re your machine about bleach in dispensor but consulted the wife about bleach in our machine and no where in the manual does it mention use of bleach only softeners ? however you mention dispensor does not dispense ? try this? remove/pull out drawer and clean out the machine where drawer fits of any residue powder alsi the softener dispensor remove from drawer and ensure the cap is good fit on the dispensor tube ? if loose? then the dispensor will not work as it is emptied of softener//bleach by syphon effect ie as like toilet flush? as water enters rises to tor of tube then the fluid in compartment is syphoned along with water that is entering on rinse? cycle so if no syphon? water will o/flow/fill the drawer on l/h side and may o/flow leak from drawer ?? hope this helps? and you understand the syphon effect for using softeners ? ps i may be mistaken about use of bleach but prior apologies if iam wrong

Model number f45zr24jw type 7 water filling up at bottem of freezer looks like it is comming from vent at bottom of freezer back wall filles up leaks out onto floor were is water comming from.


water is coming from the evaporator coil durring the defrost cycle and it must drain down into the small hose in the pan where the ice is , turn the unit off to defrost with a hair dryer of you can wait it out , after defrosting the ice puddle , pour a cup of bleach in it and snake it out with a stiff wire or similar. this should clear your clogged primary evaporator drain and stop the water leak.

Top Load Kenmore Elite Bleach Dispenser Leaking


I have this same problem today and did not need to take off the top panel or remove the front panel/housing. The bleach and frabric softener dispenser snaps right out and you can check the tubing and clamp from there. You will need to remove the top panel if you need to replace the tubing. In my case, there is a crack in the dispenser itself which has ruined several loads of laundry over the past year...now I realize it wasn't the clamp and hose, but the dispenser itself. Check them all while you are at it.
