there are 2 components to the soap dispenser, 1 using liquid soap has a little tub that you dispense soap into and 2nd you remove the tub when using powder soap. I assume that you are talking about the little tub is filled with water. How this works is by adding water to the tub the level rises and siphoning empties the little tub. If any water remains it is due to water being added after the little tub has already emptied. That is not a big issue and will happen. Just empty the water or add some water to start the syphon process.
The best way to do this is to open up the door and remove the filter cage and any other associated filter parts, then put a garden hose into the filter compartment (Which is the lowest point in the machine) and syphon the water outside. This will get rid of 95% of the water. You might want to throw a couple of buckets of clean water into the machine when it gets close to being emptied, so the clean water flushes the diorty water out and you don't get it smelling after a day or two.
Tricks for syphoning:
Start with a garden hose FULL of clean water by putting the end of the garden hose into the machine and turning the hose on. Now the hose is primed, simply disconnect the other end from the tap and get it lower than the dishwasher and the water will syphon away without any of that silly sucking on the hose and risking a mouthful of dirty water.
Additionally, if you're having a problem finding somewhere lower than the dishwasher,take the end taht was on the tap outside and lift a drain cover, drop the end of the hose down into the drain, this will be lower than the washer and the syphon will start.
Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.
To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.
Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.
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.

It sounds to me like the base safety float has been activated. This will cause the unit to cancel the program it is in and activate the drain pump, hence the "run" that you hear, but no water.
You need to remove the lid and two side panels. If you see water inside the base, you know that the safety float switch has been activated.
Remove plug from outlet and empty water from base (by tilting to left side and using sponge to syphon water)
Restart unit and check where water is leaking from. Usually from a filling hose not correctly/tightly fitted; leaky inlet valve; leaky heater asembly.
Hope this helps!
