Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. It sounds like the issue that has happened is your solenoid has failed for the bleach dispenser and the whole assembly will need to be replaced. This is the part I am referring to you will need to replace and it is not hard to do either.
