The dispenser for the bleach is clogged up. It is a siphon dispenser and if something gets in the tube it will stop siphoning. You can pull the complete tray out of the washer and take it to a sink. There will be round circular siphon towers there and you will need to clean them and under the trays there are also the same towers and clean those. Reassemble and holding the complete tray as level as you can slowly run water into the bleach dispenser cup until it starts siphoning out. If you stop the water it will almost completely empty the tray. Leaving very small amounts of water is normal.

The venturi works by creating a siphon as the water runs past. It it difficult to see a problem but very slight changes or sediment build up can change how it works. As the water runs through the venturi it should draw the bleach out of the container. If water is spraying in instead of siphoning out then the venturi is usually the cause of the problem.

Clorox also wants this to work for you and here is information from them: https://www.clorox.com/dr-laundry/issues...

Is this accomplished by simply opening the top-load -lid of the washer and carefully prying the (plastic?) cup out of the top of the washer?
