My Whirlpool Duet front loading washer, model # GHW9150PW1, has started dispensing the fabric softener and bleach seem to pour down into the washer as soon as I close the dispenser. Is this something I can fix on my own?

If you over-fill it, it may do that ... gravity ... syphon ...

Also, even if not overfilled, if you slam the dispenser drawer closed too hard you could cause the fabric softener to splash over the siphon pipe and cause the fabric softener to start flowing out before it should.

It will happen much easier with an overfill and closing drawer too hard.
