Question about Whirlpool duet Washing Machines
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 top of 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, again as it should be. This one's got me stumped

SOURCE: Bleach dispenser
This compartment works on syphon action caused by the water when filling, rmove syphon cover on dispenser bos or try pooring boiling water into compartment, this will usually resolve

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.

I have the same model # and same problem!!!
Worked fine for few months and then it started.
Sears technicians came twice but couldn't fix the problem. Now they have ordered a new dispenser door. Sears said they changed the design. Will see if the new door will work. Hope that helps.
