If the machine actively pumps the water out while it's filling it sounds like a timer problem and would require a visit from a technician.
If, however it merely runs out while filling you probably have the drain hose in a position which allows the water to run straight through the machine.
Make sure the hose is above the level of the water in the machine. Be careful not to create a syphon.
Check the installation directions.
The end of the hose should be above the water level in the machine
Liquid bleach tank? Do you mean the small container one puts fabric conditioner into for the final rinse?
They have a siphonic action. In normal use you put a small amount of liquid into the tank and when the machine starts the final rinse, water is added. Once above a certain level the siphon starts and empties the tank into the machine.
Take the drawer out of the machine, put it in the sink and slowly run water into the tank and you'll see that the level rises to a point then the tank empties.
So, perhaps you are adding too much bleach (or whatever) and the liquid is siphoning out before you even close the drawer.
The drain hose needs to be lifted above the high fill level in washer.The easiest way to fix this is take the drain hose (if your drain hose starts from the bottom of machine and goes up)tie or strap it to the back of the washer so it cant sag or drop down and start syphoning the water.Remember the washer will drain out the water if the drain hose is lower than the amount of water in the tub.Thats why your making sure by tieing the drain hose to the highest point before it makes it way to the drain .
the hose may still be filled from last cycle.
try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.
