Default White ink leaks via capping station

Hello Everyone
I just replaced a capping station.
I noticed white ink level diminishes after printer idles for few days. I checked it for leakage and discovered white inks drops in capping station. Picture is attached. Also there is a white ink lake underneath the capping station where the pad is.
I will appreciate any suggestions on how to solve this issue.

Check your waste tubes coming out of the capping assembly. If you never had an issue like this with your previous capping assembly it could be some defect in the new one you put in.

Thank you for your message. After I posted my message printer stayed idling overnight. In the morning ink level in white ink bottle reduced 6 mm. Ink just disappears and fast.
I moved printhead to the left. I noticed:
- white ink drop in printhead
- white ink lake in capping station
Pictures are attached below.
Is it normal? Can it be caused by damaged damper? I have not changed them for a long time.

With a syringe attached to the waste hose of the capping assembly, see if you can pull ink through the waste hose.
