I purchased an accessory for my Whirlpool top load washer that did not come with it. It was a fabric softener dispenser. I was told to pop off top cover of agitator and put dispenser in its place. I just don't understand how it will work or if that is the correct installation. I see water left in well of agitator. I that correct?

Yes it is,although the whole peice running half way down will probably have to be purchased..It's called the(Clothes Mover)it has finns running down & can be removed by a bolt down the centre after removing the top cap.
You really cant take them apart without breaking the dispensers. Fabric softner is basically wax and fragrance. Add very hot water to the dispenser to melt the fabric softner. In the future, water down the fabric softner.
Sounds like the seals & gaskets have failed. If you removed the wash plate trying to unjam the washer and did not also replace the gasket kit, you may have violated the integrity of the water tight seals.
However, sometimes also the fabric softener dispenser especially, gets clogged and may overflow and leak if the tubes are clogged with coagulated fabric softener.
As I am writing this, my washer's fabric softener dispenser is clogged and the method I use to clear it has not worked this time - a cup of boiling water to melt the congealed fabric softener.
One has to open the top lid (method varies by Calypso model - Whirlpool or Kenmore) to get to the dispenser tubing and reservoir underneath to get things flowing again, and in fact I have a small water leak on the floor where the dispenser overflowed a bit.
That you have a leak, if it happens to come from such a clog, at least gives you a sign that your dispenser solenoids are not malfunctioning, requiring replacement of one of the circuit boards.
