Water fills dispensers

After every load, the dispensers fill with water. I can just lift the laundry dispenser out and empty it, but I have to siphon it out of the bleach and fabric softener dispensers. It takes alot of time. Why is this happening?

    I pull the dispenser drawer out regularyly and clean it due to black mold build up. All of the holes are unblocked but I often have a full laundry detergent dispenser filled with water and usually the bleach dispenser is half full.

    I have a bleach dispenser cup full of water after my washer completes its cycle. I either have to take the entire drawer out to empty it or shake it several times to get some of the water out. I have all the blue pieces and don't see any build-up in the holes.

A small amount of water left in them is normal but if they are totally filled something is wrong. Do you still have the blue pieces in the bleach and softner cups? If they're missing they will not empty right. You may also have build up in the holes that the liquid should go down that you may have to clean out.

Fabric softener dispenser will not empty


Hello Mike Oswald - Fabric Softener is a very thick liquid that can clog up the siphoning mechanism. Try the following steps below.
  1. Remove the Dispenser
  2. Remove the Inset in the dispenser
  3. Clean out the dispenser and dispenser cover

The Fabric dispenser needs to have the hot and cold water at equal pressure for the fabric softener dispenser to operate properly.

1. Turn on the hot water fill then cold water fill at the washer. If the Wash Sense or temperature sensing is on it needs to be off.

  • If they seem to fill at the same pressure then you will need to contact a professioanl to move forward accurately.
  • If they seem not to fill at the same then you need to correct the pressure.

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.

My LG Washer 0642h doesn't always dispense the bleach. I notice that the dispenser fills up with water and doesn't empty. I have to empty it in the next wash. The dispenser doesn't appear to be clogged.


If the dispenser comes with a siphon tube, it is always this tube that is clogged. When the dispenser receives water from the machine, it fills up, the water/softener mix starts to go through the tube, at first by just draining because it has sufficient head, and then as the dispenser gets lower, siphon action in the tube takes place. . This tube must be clear for this dispenser to work.

The water softener dispenser fills with water each wash...


This is pretty typical....other than dumping the drawer out each time, I have not seen a solution for this complaint. If it is having trouble dispensing softener, you could try raising the front legs 1/4", this helps create a better siphon in the dispenser.

Detergent dispenser is filled with water after wash is completed.


The water is left there because the syphon action is not working in the dispenser, what you need to do is to remove the dispenser drawer completely and thoroughly clean the conditioner compartment, poking any holes or tube, particularly the syphon tube with a piece of flexible wire or similar to ensure it is completely unblocked.
. to test, fill the conditioner compartment with water, and it should slowly empty itself, if it does not, then it is still blocked.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.

Bleach not always being emptied, bleach marks on clothes, bleach sometimes runs right out when you fill it.


The dispenser works on a siphon principal. If you over fill the cup it will start the siphon and empty before it should. If that's happening you're using way too much. You only need about a tablespoon of soap, softner and bleach for a full load.

LG washing machine problem


I had the same problem with my LG front load. The second repairman fixed the problem. The water lines going into the machine were clogged with sediment (probably because I have well water). This caused the cups to remain full of water because the water pressure was so low the siphons were not working as they should to empty the cups. This also caused the wash cycles to be extremely long (sometimes 2 hours) because it took so long for the water to enter the machine for the wash & rinse cycles. Since the lines have been cleaned it works fine.

Bleach drains from compartment as soon as it is filled


Could you be putting too much bleach in? These things are usually designed to be self siphoning once the dispenser is full enough. The idea is that you half-fill it with bleach. At the right point in the cycle, the machine starts adding water, filling the dispenser up to the point where it siphons out until empty. If you overfill at the outset, the thing will empty straight away. If you're sure that isn't the cause, then take the dispenser out and check that the dam that keeps the bleach in place to start with isn't damaged (you may need to take a cover off the back of the dispenser first to see this).
