Whirlpool Duet bleach dispenser not working - dispenser motor working properly.

The bleach dispenser on my washer stopped emptying recently and many years of regular use. Undiluted bleach is left in the dispenser after washing. I opened the washer, ran the diagnostic cycle and the dispenser motor cycles though all 4 positions as it should. Water coming in to the top of the dispenser is directed to the holes above the bleach dispenser. This one's got me stumped.

SOURCE: Water Softner Dispense wont empty - Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 HE3t

I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet 9100 will not drain during regular wash cycle

I would assume that you are using HE detergent if not the pump could go into a suds lock. You may have a bad drain pump. The other options could be possibly a bad central control unit. (however these are very expensive) or possibly a door lock issue but usually you will get a door lock error.

Dispenser full of water


believe it or not whirlpool says that's normal its in your owners manuel under dispenser because the washer mixes the bleach soap fabric softener with water for it to dispense they say its normal for water to remain but if you want to empty it there is a tab that you can press down on in the dispenser and remove it have a bowl handy

Liquid Bleach dispenser doesn't work correctly


This may not be relevant, but by design, bleach does NOT dispense in the Buly/Bedding, Kids Wear, and Silk/Ultra Delicate cycles. If you try to use it, it remains in the dispenser.

As for the yucky smell, leave the door open when not in use.

Whirlpool Duet dispenser problem


this may be due to a faulty solenoid, if the cold water is flowing into the machine under normal use at the start, then check the solenoids as the conditioner has its own, the solenoids are just behind the body where the water pipes fit to the machine, they have 2 wires on each one, and are tested for circuit when machine is unplugged. stat there, hope i have helped
