This is absolutely normal and you dont have to worry about it..
The reason for this:
The fabric softener compartment uses an over flow method to get the fabric softener out of its compartment and into the wash load. Water comes up underneath through a syphon tube and gently fills the fabric softener dispenser and causes it to over flow in its diluted state. The reason for this is that it is the most effective way for fabric softener to be diluted prior to hitting the clothes in the drum. Fabric softener has to be diluted before coming into contact with fabrics.
This is in contrast to how detergents dispensers work which simply flush the soap powder in to the drum by water being squirted on to it from above.
It is perfectly normal to have a fabric softener dispenser full of clean water after the wash cycle. Just lift and empty it out when you need to fill it with fabric softner for your next wash

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.

have you pulled the drawer from the machine and cleaned it thoroughly. break it down into individual pieces and clean the hell out of it. Fabric softener can build up over time and clog every crack and crevice. check also the hole the drawer goes into, water flows into the drawer mixes with f.s., bleach, etc. dilutes it and sends out the bottom.

When cleaning the softener chamber, make sure you remove and clean the syphon tube thoroughly. This is the only chamber designed to handle liquid. Otherwise, check that you have sufficient water pressure and that the cold valve opens fully. If you dont hear a decent gush of water during the rinse cycle, it's either pressure or the valve.
