Question about Kenmore 46462 Front Load Washer
The Bleach & Softener portions of the the drawer do not empty. We have changed the electrical parts that let the water into these portions and have thoroughly cleaned the compartment.
You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.
Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Hello friend, thank you for your post!
This is a normal part of the siphoning action of your drawer. You would just remove the dispenser and discard the water. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Hello friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!
It is a normal operation to receive water inside the dispenser after draining. This is part of the siphoning action of the drawer. You would just remove the drawer and empty the water out, then reattach the dispenser drawer. I hope this is helpful. -Matt
