    I have the same problem. It looks like the dispenser is leaking out of the back--maybe a hairline crack. Is it possible to replace the dispenser?

    I have the same problem with my LG. I have found that if I let the entire dispenser drawer dry out completely (remove drawer from unit and air dry) that the bleach dispenser works perfectly. My theory is that once water is in the siphon tube it mixes with the bleach you're adding and starts the siphon (dispensing) process prematurely. I consider this a design flaw.

    I had this problem and checked for build-up on the dispensers as recommended by LG, but no build-up. I believe the problem is casued by the front of the dispenser drawer tipping down when extended to add bleach. I stopped this by holding it level as I added bleach and pushed the drawer back into place. So you need to add detergent first then lift the front of drawer to level it then add bleach. When the drawer is extended and tips down the bleach drains from it's compartment and should run into the machine but since the drawer is tipped the bleach runs out the back and dribbles to the front of the drawer. It is a problem with their design there should be a rubber flap or something to assure this does not occur.

Make sure your machine is lavel and just a little higher in the front about 1/16 in and do not fill all the way to line just under line

DO NOT overfill the bleach dispenser. The first time it happened to me, I knew I had put a little too much bleach in. When I turned the machine on, it ran out and down the front of the machine into a puddle on the floor. I did it once again, and the same thing happened. Now that I'm aware of it, it hasn't happened since.

Bleach leaking on floor


hiya was a bit puzzled at this one ? but will try to help not certain re your machine about bleach in dispensor but consulted the wife about bleach in our machine and no where in the manual does it mention use of bleach only softeners ? however you mention dispensor does not dispense ? try this? remove/pull out drawer and clean out the machine where drawer fits of any residue powder alsi the softener dispensor remove from drawer and ensure the cap is good fit on the dispensor tube ? if loose? then the dispensor will not work as it is emptied of softener//bleach by syphon effect ie as like toilet flush? as water enters rises to tor of tube then the fluid in compartment is syphoned along with water that is entering on rinse? cycle so if no syphon? water will o/flow/fill the drawer on l/h side and may o/flow leak from drawer ?? hope this helps? and you understand the syphon effect for using softeners ? ps i may be mistaken about use of bleach but prior apologies if iam wrong

We had the same problem- for us it was because we were mixing laundry booster (Oxyclean) with liquid soap in the dispenser. It seems the water running through the tray had insufficient pressure to properly flush the tray out, so residue accumulated on the back & underside of the tray. Our water pressure is good here, and we don't use a water softener or filters that can reduce the pressure. Unfortunately it seems to just be a bad design of the soap dispenser tray.

We also had a problem with water/bleach leaking from our soap dispenser- when we used the bleach compartment in the dispenser we got leaks dripping onto the floor from behind the front cover of the washing machine. It was running down the front of the washer behind the front cover & coming out onto the floor. The repair guy said this was because the dispenser tray was pulled out too far, but the reason we were pulling the soap tray out so far was because the bleach compartment was too far back in the tray to use if we didn't. Now we just leave the drawer partially closed & pour the bleach directly into the soap compartment along with the soap.

Top Load Kenmore Elite Bleach Dispenser Leaking


I have this same problem today and did not need to take off the top panel or remove the front panel/housing. The bleach and frabric softener dispenser snaps right out and you can check the tubing and clamp from there. You will need to remove the top panel if you need to replace the tubing. In my case, there is a crack in the dispenser itself which has ruined several loads of laundry over the past year...now I realize it wasn't the clamp and hose, but the dispenser itself. Check them all while you are at it.

Fabric softener leaks out at beginning of wash


I have a 9200SQ Whirlpool duet.  It might be similar.  I think the bleach and fabric dispensers work on the siphon principal--once the level gets above a certain point they will then siphon out until almost nothing is left.  They should not start to siphon until extra water is directed into them during the correct cycle.   It is possible that they are starting to siphon early because 1. the washer is not level, 2. water is being added to the dispenser during the wrong cycle 3.  You put too much liquid into the dispenser and it started the siphon. 
Note:  You should not peek in the dispenser during the washer cycles because it might interrupt the "siphon"action and leave residual bleach or fabric softener in the dispensers.
