Kenmore 90 Series Bleach Dispenser Clogged

There is always a pool of liquid in the bleach dispenser. I want to clear the clog, but I have no idea HOW. I was unable to locate a drain, assuming it exists, so I cannot even figure out WHAT to clear!

SOURCE: Leaking water from the Liquid chlorine bleach dispenser

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

SOURCE: detergent dispenser clogged-Kenmore 90 series washer

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.

SOURCE: kenmore frontloader fabric softener dispenser is clogged

There should be pins located somewhere on the dispenser or a grey thing located inside the dispenser, push it down and that will release the dispenser from the washer. Afterwards you can put in in the dishwasher, this should clean out any clogging residue.

I have a Kenmore Elite front loading washer model 110.42922. It approximately 5 years old. The fabric softener dispense and the bleach dispenser are no longer working. Any Ideas?


Sounds like the lines are clogged.Soap and softener leave residue that over time will build up and clog the machine.It is not hard to fix but it does take a while.I would try very hot water first,just pour it down the dispenser.If that wont clear it.Take the cabinet apart and find the clog then remove it.The lines are transparent .Also while you are in there,look for a small electric motor,which pumps the bleach to the tub.If the lines are not clogged,replacement of that motor is the next step.Most probably it is just dirty.

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.

My LG Washer 0642h doesn't always dispense the bleach. I notice that the dispenser fills up with water and doesn't empty. I have to empty it in the next wash. The dispenser doesn't appear to be clogged.


If the dispenser comes with a siphon tube, it is always this tube that is clogged. When the dispenser receives water from the machine, it fills up, the water/softener mix starts to go through the tube, at first by just draining because it has sufficient head, and then as the dispenser gets lower, siphon action in the tube takes place. . This tube must be clear for this dispenser to work.

Fabric Softener Won't Dispense


The fabric softener dispenser is notorious for clogging. Liquid fabric softener is essentially a liquid form of wax. After a period of time it begins to gunk up the inside of the fabric softener dispenser. If you remove the dispenser drawer and look into the cavity, there should be a series of holes in the upper part of the compartment where water sprays into all the dispenser trays. These holes get gunked up and clogged and water will not dispense properly. As a result, the washer goes through a complete cycle, but the dispenser stays full. If this is the case, you can take some cotton swabs and/or toothpicks and clean these holes real good. It may be a bit meticulous, but it should take care of the problem. Post back and let me know if this helps.
