It is a Whirlpool Cabrio top-loading washer.  The model is WTW7340XWO.  We don't use bleach.  Lately, I have noticed the bleach dispenser is full of water after we run a load of wash.  If I dry out the dispenser, it fills again during the next use.  Any advice?

 

Thanks, in advance, for the help.

Ignore it.

 

The machine doesn't know if you've added bleach to the dispenser or not so it flushes water through the dispenser on every run.  The residual water is supposed to siphon out when the flush-flow stops, which for some reason it's not doing.

 

But since you don't use bleach, ignore it.

Thanks for the response.  I'm going to go tell my wife I fixed the washer (and then crack a beer and put the baseball game on).
