LG Tromm Not Dispensing Bleach

Several times, after a bleach load, I noticed my bleach dispenser still full of bleach. Was using HE bleach, then noticed on a different website that the gel bleach (which HE bleach is) is to thick to go through the siphon. Started using regular bleach. Worked several times in a row. Today, bleach was still in the dispenser again. LG said check intake water hoses. I did. No crimps. Any other ideas?

    My LG frontloader is having the same problem. The bleach stays in the dispenser tray. Does anyone have an idea what I should be looking for?

    We just got our LG Steamer installed on Saturday January 24th, 2009 and it is not despensing bleach either. It takes three washes in a row to dispense all of the bleach. Also my Tub cleaning cycle is not working. Vernon, Atlanta Georgia.

    The washer may not be dispensing the bleach and always have liquid in bleach tray after cycle is completed.

My wife has been complaining that the bleach and fabric softener dispenser still had water in it after washing. After removing the top to the washer I found that there are 4 components to the dispenser. 1. the solenoid (part of a 3 solenoid bundle) for the cold water, 2 the controller to the solenoid 3. The hose from the solenoid to the dispenser, and 4. The dispenser. After checking that there were no kinks in the hoses. I checked the solenoid found it had power at the right time but the flow was low. I shut off all the water and disconnected the lines going into the back of the washer I found that the cold water filters were clogged. After cleaning them (there were 2 for each hot and cold) The washer worked correctly.

I also had the same problem of bleach not dispensing and water residue in detergent cup after each wash. After reading several blogs about water pressure in the LG washers, I checked my water hoses to the washer. Over time, my metal sheathed lines had kinked near the input due to sagging because of the weight of the hoses. When hot water went through, they sagged more, cutting the flow. I reconfigured the hoses to support them to avoid sagging. Now my bleach dispenser works and my detergent cup is no longer filled with residue water after each wash.

Bleach not dispensing


Make sure it is actually bleach, and not water. Most models with a bleach dispenser in the drawer actually dispense the bleach by adding water to the cup and allowing the mixture to overflow into the machine- so that pure bleach doesn't land on your favorite shirt before there is any water in the machine.

Bleach and Fabric Dispenser not working


Got a Brand new LG ~ WT5001CW toploader today. I did 2 loads of wash. Theres a Bleach Dispenser on the top left side but I didn't use it. In the middle of my 2nd wash I noticed the bleach dispenser was full of water. I thought well maybe after the rinse and the spin it would take the water out. Well when the cycle was complete the Bleach Dispenser was still full of water.
I took the Bleach dispenser out and checked the holes to see if anything was plugged, didn't look like it. Was wondering if anyone knew how to solve this problem or do you think that since I took the bleach dispenser out and put it back it that it might work for my next load ??
Any opinions will be greatly appreciated !! Thanks Much !!

Whirlpool bleach dispenser not dispensing properly


It sounds like the bleach dispenser is clogged or has a crack in it. What we do, is when we bleach our clothes and I know that this is extra work, but we wait until the washing machine is full of water, then add the bleach directly to the wash.

Dispenser problems


Open dispenser drawer and push down on center plastic tab at back of dispenser to allow you to take dispenser out of machine. Take the plastic pieces off and clean them. (they need to be clean in order to siphon the bleach, softener, etc out. If there is water left in them, the water fill valve is OK. Cleaning should fix your problem. If you are using concentrated additives, try diluting them a bit with warm water when you add them to the dispenser. Remember, only one tablespoon (max) detergent, one teaspoon (max) fabric softener per load.

Bleach not always being emptied, bleach marks on clothes, bleach sometimes runs right out when you fill it.


The dispenser works on a siphon principal. If you over fill the cup it will start the siphon and empty before it should. If that's happening you're using way too much. You only need about a tablespoon of soap, softner and bleach for a full load.

Fabric Softener & bleach dispensing


The control board program has many sensors built into the unit to determine when to dispense the bleach and the softener.  LG tech documents doesn't list when these liquids are dispensed so there must be a program that matches the current operation and loads of each wash program.  That's the best answer I can give you at this time.

I had the same problem. LG said that the liquid bleach needs to be diluted. 50% water, 50% bleach. Straight bleach it too thick.

LG TROMM WM2487 Bleach not getting fully removed after cycle


Keeping in mind that the bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water.  Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorley?  Are you using the HE detergent?  If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and haveing a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up?  Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is alot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the bleach water before the next load
