Thats quite normal, espessially if you do not use the fabric softener, the compartment empties through an overflow siphon action, so if there eis nothing in the compartment the area is flooded but cannot cause siphon action, It is not an issue at all.

    But, what if you need to use bleach? Must I always remove the dispenser to empty the water?

WATER & SOME OF THE BLEACH DOES NOT DRAIN FROM THE BLEACH COMPARTMENT AFTER EACH WASH? HAVING TO PULL DRAWER OUT & EMPTY REMAINING BLEACH & WATER EACH TIME BEFORE NEXT USE. WHAT CAN BE DONE?


Your washer is designed to purge the bleach dispenser between loads. For example, if changing from bleach to no bleach. The residue is normal.

How do I get the bleach dispenser to drain?


Hello Denise C - There are several things that could cause the bleach to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is bleach? If it is pure bleach, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the bleach dispenser with water. The bleach dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.



When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the bleach solenoid is energized and water flows into the bleach dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and bleach and water flow into the tub.



If the liquid in the bleach dispenser is pure bleach you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the bleach solenoid and a volt meter is required.



If the liquid in the bleach dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. Scum will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the bleach and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub.



Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.



To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the bleach compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out. You may also test the fabric softener compartment the same way.



I do hope this information proves to be helpful.

I have a Kenmore Model 795 refrigerator with an ice maker in the bottom drawer. We purchased the refrigerator in August of 2008 (currently November of 2010) and finally hooked up the ice maker last week. ...


The 795 model you make reference to only tells me that this is and LG bottom mount Refrigerator. There are several numbers missing from the model number. This is and example of a good part number: 79577253602 The filter for bottom mount LG units is usually in the upper RH side of the fresh food compartment. See this link: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fK0810366-00001.png (item 611E)

The weak chlorine taste should fade unless the source is from your house water supply. Let the ice catch bin fill completely once and then dump everything in it. After that your ice should be normal. I think you may be noticing the taste you get from unused plastic tubing / water carrying parts. Just so you know if anyone used bleach to clean the freezer compartment the ice maker will catch any bleach water drips and pass that immediately into the ice. (Have very long customer warranty story with repeated in home visits about how I learned about people using bleach to clean freezer compartments!)
I digressed... just dump the ice collection bin after it is full one time and then check the ice taste on any ice after that. If you think maybe the taste is originating from the freezer compartment get a box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, cut off the top of the box and leave it in your refrigerator freezer for 6 weeks then toss it in the trash.

Another note no manufacturer will tell you is if you install a cheap in line water filter before the refrigerator water connection you can make the EXPENSIVE ONE on inside of the fresh food compartment last a very very long time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Water keeps pooling on the second shelf in the refrigerator, and I can not find the source.


Water collecting inside a fridge (that doesn't have a water dispenser in the fresh food compartment) is usually a sign of a clogged tube that directs water collected during the defrost cycle of the freezer coil. The defrost heater melts frost / ice that collects on the coil and water drips into a pan directly under the coil in the freezer compartment. The pan has a tube that allows the water to flow into a pan at the bottom of the fridge, where it is generally evaporated by the heat of the compressor.

You'll have to access the coil and pan (probably behind the back wall of the freezer - but check your model first!) and clear the obstruction from the tube. It is not uncommon for bacteria, mold, etc to grow in the tube. After clearing with a blunt flexible snake - run 4 - 6 ounces of a 10% bleach 90% water mixture to kill any growths remaining in the tube.

Sometimes, ice can form in the top inch or two of the tube, too. A turkey baster can be used to direct hot water into the tube to quicken the thaw process.

If there is water dispensing in the fridge, check all lines and filters in the compartment for spits, cracks and leaks. Repair / replace parts as needed.

Do not perform these steps with the power on!

I hope this helps!

As far as I am aware, there IS NO dispenser for bleach, you have to put bleach in drum before adding clothes and starting cycle. The far right compartment is only for "pre-wash" cycles, and if no pre-wash is selected, water will run through ALL compartments at the rinse stage..... Oshie
