Hello my fellow appliance repair friends...Received a distress call saying beast was dispensing all its liquids, soap, fabris softener, ect. into the drum before it even starts.....that can't be right.....I've never worked on a dispenser like this before, just wondering if this is a common problem and what to possibly look for? Could it be the switch-dis W10283468? Thanks for your time!

Yes, I've had this happen before, if it happens repeatedly if will trigger a fault code and machine will shut down. Replace the part you mentioned above.

Put a new actuator in it, ran a normal cycle to see where water was being dispensed, looks like it was being dispensed on the soap side. Then I cancelled it, started a rince cycle. With that cycle it looked like it was being filled and flushing the softener side of the dispenser. I was watching all this with the lid off, and the actuator was doing its thing. Seemed ok to me. Customer called back this morning saying its dispensing all liquids at the start. Am I missing something here, is this the normal dispensing process? Thanks

No fault codes

The detergent, if liquid will drip into the tub as soon as you put it in, but i have seen times when people overfill the bleach and softener and then when they push the drawer in and the liquids slosh and start the siphon
