Verify that that the hoses from the dispenser tray to the tub are not clogged. Detergents and fabric softeners can build up inside the hoses and cause partial or complete clogs that will cause the dispenser trays to overflow and thus leak. This is a common problem.
Remove the dispensing tray and thoroughly clean it. Use a bottle brush. You may already have done this. If that fails the network above dispensing tray may be fouled. This should then be cleaned. As it is fairly inaccessible, being above the dispensing tray, I can only suggest using a toothbrush to clean the upper surface (which faces down)
[some conditioner dispensers work by a siphoning method which requires a 'tube' - in fact an open channel - from above]
I have the same problem in my washing machine but haven't got any further that reading up on the internet, and thinking about it. I plan to use an old electric toothbrush in my attempt - so I don't know if it will work !
The dispenser often has a small amount of water in it after a completed cycle so that's nothing to worry about. A lot of water usually means the dispenser needs a good clean. Pull the dispenser as far as it will go and then give a sharp tug to pull it completely out. The middle dispenser cover can then be taken out and cleaned, and so can all the other parts you've removed. The pipes in the machine and in the dispenser tray should be cleaned out well, as these usually cause the problem of retaining water. Put the cover back on the centre section securely and then push the whole tray back into the machine gently. Good luck!
Remove the tray that the detergent etc..goes into. There is usually a tab in the rear of the tray that you can push down to release it and remove fully. Scrub out the whole tray as best you can removing any parts that you can remove to clean as much as possible. Replace the tray, this should help.
At the dispenser, remove and clean the cap that covers the tube in the dispenser tray, also clean the notch where the cap sits on the tray. The tube and cap work as a syphon, and something is not seated quite right. The softener is pulled out of the dispenser when water raises the level enough to start the syphonong effect. Once the water quits going into the dispenser tray, the syphoning continues until the level gets low enough for air to get under the cap, breaking the syphon. This usually leaves very little water in the dispenser.

hi, nikoltheis! i'm not sure if we have exactly the same model, but it should be pretty close. here's what my user's manual says:
Detergent and fabric softner may build up in the dispenser drawer. Residue should be removed once or twice a month
- Remove the drawer by first sliding the safety latch to the right, then pulling the drawer out until it stops.
- Reach back into the left rear corner or the drawer cavity and press down firmly on the lock tab (left rear portion of the drawer). Pull out the drawer.
- Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softner compartments.
- Rinse the drawer and inserts with hot tap water to remove traces of accumulated powders and liquids. Large amounts of fabric softner residue may indicate improper dilution or that more frequent cleaning is required.
- To clean the drawer opening (the empty area left behind when you remove the drawer) use a small brush to clean the recess. Remove all the residue from the upper and lower parts of the recess. (The picture shows this being done with a tooth brush.)
- Replace the insert pressing "X" to lock it in place. Return the dispenser drawer.
