Fabric softener dispenser will not empty


Hello Mike Oswald - Fabric Softener is a very thick liquid that can clog up the siphoning mechanism. Try the following steps below.
  1. Remove the Dispenser
  2. Remove the Inset in the dispenser
  3. Clean out the dispenser and dispenser cover

The Fabric dispenser needs to have the hot and cold water at equal pressure for the fabric softener dispenser to operate properly.

1. Turn on the hot water fill then cold water fill at the washer. If the Wash Sense or temperature sensing is on it needs to be off.

  • If they seem to fill at the same pressure then you will need to contact a professioanl to move forward accurately.
  • If they seem not to fill at the same then you need to correct the pressure.

Water left in fabrish softener dispenser after wash cycle


My Frigidaire front loader was doing the same thing and also not taking the bleach. I could hear that the water pressure was not real strong when I turned the machine on. I removed the two small screens on the back of the machine where the water supply hoses attached, found they were partially clogged and cleaned them well. The bleach and softener dispensers are now working like new.

Fabric softener dispenser not working


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you should have the softener dispenser on the center post of the agitator. If this is the case, you need to remove it by popping it off the center post and take it apart. Soak it in some hot water to dissolve the softener residue and reassemble. Most dispenser related problems are attributed to softener that hardens and clogs up the dispenser. Liquid softener is essentially a wax and will do this over time. You will need to clean it from time to time.

Bosch Washing Machine Softener Tray not emptying


You need to replace the cold water inlet valve. If the machine is older than one year it may be clogged on the side that moderates the cold water to the bleach and softener compartment. Replacing the valve fixed the problem. During the cycle when the softener dispenser fills it should fill quickly and no or little water should be seen in the soap dispenser area. If a lot of water goes into the soap dispense and little into the softener area the valve is clogged.

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.

Fabric softener dispenser


Siphon dispensers are always holding some water. I would check the level on the machine, not over fill with softener and if not a little water to help it down. The water supply goes to the back wall under the console and a little lower in new machines.

Bosh washer won't dispense softener. cleaned the tray and tested it by filling with water and it drained completly out, so i know its not clogged. washed another load and softener still there at end of...


I had the same problem. I went to www.justanswer.com and asked the same question as you. I have copied my questions and answers into this reply. My Bosch Nexxt 500 Series washer has stopped dispensing fabric Sent to Appliance Experts 10/25/2009 at 3:24 PM My Bosch Nexxt 500 Series washer has stopped dispensing fabric softener; I also find water in the softener dispenser cup (little cup that pops out for washing - has two sides, one for softener and the other for bleach) after every load. I have tried soaking and cleaning the cup with a brush as the manual indicates with no changes; water still standing. I removed the dispenser and filled it with water. The water didn't run out until I angled the end with the drain hole slightly down. Then the water came out through the drain hole fine. I thought maybe I hadn't cleaned it properly and bought a new dispenser assembly; this is a big part with the dispensers for detergent, softener, and bleach. I replaced my softener dispenser cup with the new one. Same problem. Help.

Optional Information:
Make: Bosch Nexxt 500 Series
Model: WFMC3301UC

Already Tried:
I stated my case in my question, but I did disassemble the dispenser cup. There is no blockage. It looks just like the new dispenser cup in the new assembly I bought. I also have only ran bleach through the detergent dispenser 2 times in 3 years.
Status: Awaiting Expert Reply Value: $28 Answer 10/25/2009 at 3:26 PM (2 minutes and 40 seconds later) if the dispenser is clean, then you need to replace your cold water electronic water valve. This water valve has 2 solenoids. Once for the softner and one to fill the tub. The solenoid that fills the tub can be working normally while the softner solenoid will fail to open as far as it needs and will either not send water into the softner compartment at all, or will only fill very slowly leaving diluted softner in the compartment at the end of the cycle. Here is a link to the part you need to replace. This is the part that the cold water fill hose connects to on the back of the washer.
Here is the link to the part with its description. Good luck! http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-WFMC3301UC-%3d%3di1105556&PartID=1105556
