Question about Washing Machines
I have a Whirpool front loader and sometimes when I add the bleach, it drains directly into the tub and on to the clothes. The bleach is supposed to be added during the rinse cycle. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I have made sure that the dispenser is in its proper place but sometimes that doesn't matter. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?
I have the same problem and here is the reason and the solution. When you add bleach it sits in the dispenser until the rinse cycle. During the rinse cycle the machine pours a lot of water through the dispenser. The bleach is diluted and washed out with all this water into the tumbler and you clothes are rinsed with bleach. Sometimes when this rinse happens, the water does not completely drain from the bleach dispense. It sits in there. If this happens, the next time you add bleach, there is too much liquid in the dispenser and it leaks out onto your clothes.
Solution: Before you add bleach, take the whole dispenser out and see if there is a lot of water still standing in the bleach dispenser section. If there is a lot of water, spill it out into a sink. Then fill the dispenser with your bleach and it will all work out the way it should. I was having your same problem until I discovered this. I have never had the problem since.
