Detergent and fabric softener dispense at the same time

When I add the detergent and fabric softener to the proper dispense drawers,and I close the door to the washer, then both drain into the washer at the same time Is there something wrong with the dispense mechanism or am I doing something wrong?

    I have the same problem.  I've noticed if I add soap while the door is open, the soap begins to drain into the wash basin before I even turn the machine on.  Is this normal?

Whirlpool has designed this drawer as a siphon feed and soap and softener go as 1, 2 punch followed by bleach mid cycle.

Cleaning the detergent dispenser drawer
Remove the dispenser by raising it and pulling it out (see figure below). Wash it under running water; this operation should be
repeated frequently.

Bleach and Fabric Softner Dispenser


Hi
This is a result of the siphoning action and is part of the normal operation of the washer. Water
may be removed by removing the dispenser drawer and draining
water into the empty drum or sink.

Outside
• When washing is completed, wipe top and sides of washer with a damp cloth. Turn water
faucets off to prevent pressure build-up in the hoses.
• As needed, clean the cabinet with mild soap and water. Never use harsh, gritty or
abrasive cleansers. If door or console becomes stained, clean with diluted chlorine bleach
[1/2 cup (120 ml) in 1 quart (.95 L) water]. Rinse several times with clear water.
• Remove glue residue from tape or labels with a mixture of warm water and mild detergent.
Or, touch residue with the sticky side of the tape or label.
• Before moving the washer, place a strip of cardboard or thin fiberboard under the front
leveling legs to prevent floor damage.
Cleaning the Dispenser Drawer Area
Detergent and fabric softener may build up in the dispenser drawer. Residue should be removed
once or twice a month.
• Remove the drawer by pulling the drawer out until it stops. (Figure 1)
• Reach back into the left rear corner of the drawer cavity and press down firmly on the lock
tab (left rear portion of the drawer). Pull out the drawer. (Figure 2)
• Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. (Figure 3)
• Rinse the drawer and inserts with hot tap water to remove traces of accumulated powders
and liquids. Large amounts of fabric softener residue may indicate improper dilution or
more frequent cleaning is required.
• To clean the drawer opening, use a small brush to clean the recess. Remove all residue
from the upper and lower parts of the recess. (Figure 4)
• Replace the insert pressing the "X" to lock it in place. Return the dispenser drawer.
Inside
• Remove items from the washer as soon as the cycle ends. Excess wrinkling, color transfer,
and odors may develop in items left in the washer.
• Before cleaning the washer interior, unplug the electrical power cord to avoid electrical
shock hazards.
• Dry around the washer door opening, flexible gasket, and door glass. These areas should
always be clean to ensure a water tight seal.
• When extremely soiled items have been washed, a dirty residue may remain on the drum.
Remove this by wiping the drum with a nonabrasive household cleanser. Rinse thoroughly
with water.
• Periodically, wipe dry the bottom of the flexible gasket to remove lint and other debris.
• The plastic drum vanes may become stained from fabric dye. Clean these parts with a
nonabrasive household cleanser. This prevents dye transfer to future loads.

My Frigidaire front load washer will not dispense the fabric softner during cycle.


Clean the dispenser drawer if water is introduced into the fabric softener cavity but does not dispense. Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops and push down the release tab marked "PUSH" and then pull the dispenser out completely.

Lift the dispenser drawer cover and clean the tubes both in the dispenser drawer and the cover.

Turn the drawer over then release the conveyor from the tabs and lift it off. Clean the conveyor and the drawer thoroughly.

Snap the conveyor into the tabs back into position and then reinstall the dispenser cover making sure the tubes are properly seated.

Slide the dispenser drawer back into the drawer opening while pushing down the part marked "PUSH".

Let us know if the fabric softener dispenser still does not dispense while both the detergent and bleach dispensers dispense.

    The softener holder just fills with water but will not drain.


    Is water left in the dispenser at the end of the cycle?
    About two tablespoons of water remaining in the dispenser compartment at the end of the cycle is normal. At the end of the wash cycle, fresh water automatically cleans the dispenser. Check that the cycle is complete before opening the dispenser drawer.
    Is the dispenser drawer clogged?
    A clogged dispenser can block the flow of water through the dispenser and cause water to leak out. Manually remove the dispenser, and clean any leftover detergent or additives that could clog the flow of water through the dispenser. Also, check that the detergent drawer is always completely closed during the cycle. If the drawer is not closed completely, water can leak out onto the floor.
    Are the additives dispensing too early?
    Here are a few things that can cause the additives (detergent, fabric softener or liquid chlorine bleach) to dispense early:
    • Check that the dispenser is not overfilled. Do not fill past the MAX fill lines on the dispenser. Overfilling can cause early dispensing of liquid chlorine bleach and/or fabric softener.
    • Check that the detergent separator is in the correct position. For liquid detergent, the separator should be in the front position. For powdered detergent, the separator should be in the rear position. If the separator is in the rear position while you are using liquid detergent, it will dispense immediately, which is not how it is designed to work.
    • Use powdered HE detergent when using the DELAY WASH option. Liquid detergent may dispense prior to the start of wash.
    Are the additives dispensing too late?
    The additives will not dispense until the proper time if the DELAY WASH option is selected.

    Can I use color safe bleach in my new cabrio, and if so where do I put it?


    According to the manual on pages 12 & 13.

    1.
    Place a load of sorted clothes into the washer. See “Laundry
    Tips.”
    ■ Load evenly to maintain washer balance. Mix large and
    small items. Items should move easily through the wash
    water.
    ■ Load only to the top of the basket as shown. Overloading
    can cause poor cleaning. Items need to move easily
    through the wash water.
    2. Pour measured powdered or liquid High Efficiency detergent
    into the detergent dispenser. Always use the detergent
    dispenser, and do not put detergent directly onto clothes in
    the washer.
    3. Add color-safe bleach (powdered or liquid) to this dispenser,
    if needed. Be sure to match powdered color-safe bleach with
    powdered detergent or match liquid color-safe bleach with
    liquid detergent.
    4. Pour measured liquid chlorine bleach into the liquid chlorine
    bleach dispenser, if needed. Bleach is diluted and
    automatically dispensed at the proper time during the wash
    cycle.
    ■ Do not overfill. Do not dilute. Do not use more than 1 cup
    (250 mL) for a full load. Use less with a smaller load size.
    ■ Follow the garment and the chlorine bleach
    manufacturer’s directions for proper use.
    ■ To avoid spilling, use a cup with a pouring spout. Do not
    let bleach splash, drip, or run down into the washer basket.
    ■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
    left in the dispenser. This is normal.
    NOTE: Use only liquid chlorine bleach in this dispenser.

    5. Pour measured liquid fabric softener into the fabric softener
    dispenser, if desired.
    ■ Do not overfill. The dispenser holds 3 oz (94 mL), or a
    capful of fabric softener.
    ■ The fabric softener is dispensed in the final rinse. If Extra
    Rinse is selected, the fabric softener will be dispensed
    during the Extra Rinse.
    ■ Do not spill or drip any fabric softener onto the clothes.
    ■ At the end of the cycle, a small amount of water may be
    left in the dispenser. This is normal.
    NOTE: Use only liquid fabric softener in this dispenser.
    6. Close the washer lid.
    7. Press POWER. This turns on the washer display.
    8. Select a Wash Cycle. See “Cycles.”
    9. Select the desired Modifiers. See “Modifiers.”
    10. Select an Option, if desired. See “Options.”
    11. Select Delay Wash, if desired. See “Delay Wash” in the
    “Modifiers” section.
    12. Press START. The wash cycle begins, and the display shows
    the estimated remaining time. The lid will lock.
    NOTE: If you do not press Start within 5 minutes of pressing
    Power, the washer automatically shuts off.


    The way that I read the manual, your color safe bleach would go in the detergent dispenser. Your liquid chlorine bleach would go in the bleach dispenser.

    Automatic fabric softener dispensor not emptying


    The detergent dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distributed to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle)by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next test !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!
