Despite manufacturer recommendations to never exceed maximum fill line, the irony is in order for the siphoning mechanism to bring in bleach to the wash cycle, bleach compartment must be full.



The second part of the equation should the wash cycle be strictly cold water no bleach whatsoever will be siphoned in, period. There needs to be hot or warm water for bleach to be dispensed.



So then, three questions need be answered:


  1. Does the selected cycle support dispensing of bleach? Bleach is not for all types of wash.


  1. Has the water temperature been selected to cold only? Need hot or warm water.


  1. Has the dispenser been filled to the maximum line? Dispenser needs to be full.
