We have the very same problem. Extremely frustrating, will not dispense bleach for the load intended, then it releases bleach for a load - causing bleaching on colored fabrics.

Are the plugs correctly connected to the terminals of
the INLET VALVE ASSEMBLY? Check the wiring on the
dispenser.
Check also that there is no build up of softener in the supply tubes.

SOURCE: Bleach and Fabric Softner Dispenser

This is absolutely normal and you dont have to worry about it..
The reason for this:
The fabric softener compartment uses an over flow method to get the fabric softener out of its compartment and into the wash load. Water comes up underneath through a syphon tube and gently fills the fabric softener dispenser and causes it to over flow in its diluted state. The reason for this is that it is the most effective way for fabric softener to be diluted prior to hitting the clothes in the drum. Fabric softener has to be diluted before coming into contact with fabrics.

This is in contrast to how detergents dispensers work which simply flush the soap powder in to the drum by water being squirted on to it from above.

It is perfectly normal to have a fabric softener dispenser full of clean water after the wash cycle. Just lift and empty it out when you need to fill it with fabric softner for your next wash

SOURCE: Kenmore front load washer will not dispense fabric softner

I've had this same problem and solved it by removing the detergent/bleach/softener dispenser drawer from the machine and seriously cleaning out all of the "gunk" from the drawer and from inside the drawer area on washer. Sometimes I have had to repeat the cleaning and then the fabric softener begins dispensing again. I have model # 417.43042200 but it may work on all the Kenmore front loading washers.

Help My front loading washer is not dispending


have you pulled the drawer from the machine and cleaned it thoroughly. break it down into individual pieces and clean the hell out of it. Fabric softener can build up over time and clog every crack and crevice. check also the hole the drawer goes into, water flows into the drawer mixes with f.s., bleach, etc. dilutes it and sends out the bottom.

My HE washer doesn't dispense the fabric softner


Try removing the dispenser cup - and washing the inner cup thoroughly- run a sanitary cycle with whites and chlorine bleach mold and mildew likes to haunt these front loaders - be sure to run a bleach hot water cycle once weekly
