Question about LG WM1812C Front Load Washer
The new dispenser assembly should work as designed. The problem is not likely in the dispenser assembly itself but rather with the leveling of the machine. It sounds like the machine is slightly leaning forward as the original dispenser assembly with broken locking tab slides out easily spilling the contents. It should slide put easily when the machine is level.
Since the bleach dispenser port on the new assembly is positioned at the rear of the compartment, a slight leaning of the machine forward causes the water level at the rear of the compartment to be shallower and eventually do not dispense through the port.
Make sure the machine is level and not leaning forward and the ports both on the cap and dispenser fit together perfectly. Use a leveling tool to level the machine. You may perform a bench test by placing the two dispenser assemblies on a level surface then slowly pour water on the bleach compartments until they are full. Water should start dispensing through the ports when it reaches the level of the dispenser port.

After veiwing the pics you have put up and the type of confusion you are facing its very difficult to comment on this. I would rather suggest that the best and the accurate way to do this is to talk to a support guy from Lg.
They can suggest the correct part number and whether they have reworked on the designing part. As far as me as a technician I would say both the parts should work until the part shipped by Sears is not faulty.
Let us know if you have something more to ask else please accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com
