    I have the same problem with the bleach. I have destroyed several color loads because of this problem. Also, my detergent dispenser is filled with water after every load. Irritating to have to dump the water after spending $2500.

    I have the same problem with the bleach dispenser. I have destoyed a few colored loads because of the problem. Also have a problem with the laundry soap dispenser. The water never drains from it, so I have to empty it out into the washer in order to start my next load. Irritating.

Most likely the small electric motor that moves the water injection pipe on to the various outlet mainifolds has stripped its plastic gears, afraid the only solution is a new soap dispsener assembly

Your washer is designed to purge the bleach dispenser between loads. For example, if changing from bleach to no bleach. The residue is normal.

The bleach dispenser keeps filling up with water (I am not using it) and I don't know how to empty it - and why is it filling up?

You have a leaking water valve that dispenses water into the bleach cup. You will need to replace the water valve to stop this problem.
Good luck

Yes the system is cloghed. Pull the detergent drawer out and clean the drawers housing. try using some bleach. It allways helps.

BE ADVICED: after using bleach run quick wash cycle on without any load, it's just to get rid of all bleech remains and not to damage your clothes

Bleach not always being emptied, bleach marks on clothes, bleach sometimes runs right out when you fill it.

The dispenser works on a siphon principal. If you over fill the cup it will start the siphon and empty before it should. If that's happening you're using way too much. You only need about a tablespoon of soap, softner and bleach for a full load.

You are probably using too much soap and softner. You only need about 1 Tablespoon of each for a full load with a front load machine. Run it with nothing it in except bleach. If you see bubbles inside that means there's left over soap in the tub. Keep running it empty (with bleach) until you don't see bubbles anymore then start using less soap and softner.

Smell on towels

It's good that you are using HE detergent but you're probably using way too much. To test this run the washer empty (no soap) and if you see bubbles inside that's left over soap that's still in the unit. If so, keep running it empty until the bubbles are gone then start using only about 1 tablespoon of soap per load. The washer uses about 1/10 of the water so you need to use 1/10 of the soap. Use the same amount of softner. The excess soap and softner build up in the unit and cause the smell.
