Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

If the bleach dispenser still has standing water in it after the cycle, then the hose between the tub and the dispenser or the dispenser itself is partially clogged so you'll need to take the front and top panel apart and access the hose and dispenser to clean it out until it drains properly. To get inside the washer you need a putty knife. There are 2 hidden metal spring clips between the top panel and the front panel about 5 inches from the right and left sides. Slide the putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel and push back on these metal spring clips. Now you can hinge the top panel up and backwards.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
