Your new washer has a dispenser drawer with four separate

are for detergent,
one is for liquid chlorine bleach, and one is for liquid fabric
softener. Laundry products are diluted and dispensed
automatically at the proper time during the wash cycle, making it
unnecessary for you to return to the washer during the cycle to
add them.
It is normal for small amounts of water to remain in the
dispensers when the wash cycle is complete.

use the proper dispenser s when adding laundry products.
