You probably have a plugged hose.
You need to fix that because the dang bleach over time will rust out the suspension rod mounts on this sorry excuse for a washer.

Your bleach is controlled by a diverter valve. You can check its operation by removing the main top. There's also a mini-manual inside the cabinet of this machine that will show you how to check the dispensers, among other things.
