I had a similar problem. It turned out to be the overflow "sock". It's a long plastic bag that hangs from the side of the tub. You have to get the top open, and it will be on the left side. Where it attaches to the tub, the plastic attachment has a rubber washer that gets flattened out after time allowing the attachment to get loose and leak. Since I couldn't find the washer to replace it, I cut a piece of gasket material like you get from an auto parts place and placed it behind the foam washer. This made the connection tight, and the leak stopped, thank God.

Okay...the cone actually goes inside the the two other pieces you mention. The cone is to be inserted upside-down. That is, the opening of the cone should be facing UP. The way this fabric softener dispenser is supposed to work is, you place fabric softener thorugh the opening of the dispenser. The cone actually holds it like a cup. When the washer goes through the initial spin cycle before the rinse cycle begins, the centrifugal force of the washer spinning forces the fabric softener out of the cone and into the wash tub.
The dispenser assembly should just snap right on top of the agitator. If the dispenser does not stay on securely any longer, you may have to replace it with a new one. You can find replacements at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in the same model number you provided and look for item number 1 under the "Motor, Basket and Tub Parts" heading.
I hope you find this information helpful. If you still have questions, please let me know.
PS It is also a good idea to periodically remove the dispenser and soak it in some hot water to get rid of accumulations of hardened softner. They will clog from time to time.

removed and disassembled inlet water valve - minature basket filter was clogged with white particulate which felt gritty. cleaned and reassembled and reinstalled. Works fine now. Idiot repairman never mentioned a filter but wanted to replace entire valve at cost of 140 dollars including service call. sears sux bigtime. And, from my experience with Fixya, so does your service since I never heard a thing since July EXCEPT for an offer to upgrade. Thanks for nothing.
