I do not have the model number for this washer, but it is not a steam washer. Older Duet.
When the water fills for the wash cycle the water will over flow out the bleach dispensor onto the floor.
Cleared out the lines, but still have the problem. Any info will help.
2nd service call  ??? Now I'm loosing money
Thx in advance

Check the tube going from the dispensor to the tub for blockage.  There might be a sock or even the seal for the detergent cap in there.  I get about one or two of these a month and it's the white cap stuck in there.  Good luck.

He checked the tube to the top of the drum. Are you talking about the small tube at the front side of the dispensor? If so how do you get to it??He can see it but can not get to it

If its a larger duet, it'll have a white plastic tube going from the dispenser to the door boot.  If it's a smaller duet sport, it'll have a rubber hose going from the dispenser to the tub.  It's easier to remove the outer spring clamp holding the door boot to the front panel, peel back the door boot and examine the inlet tube for a clog.
