Whirlpool duet ghw9300 fabric softener dispenser not emptying

At the end of the wash cycle the fabric softener dispenser is not totally emptied and it is still full of water. This has been going on for several washings. I have removed the dispenser drawer several times and flushed all openings with hot water to be sure nothing clogged. What next?

    Same - fabric softener compartment is full of water at the end of the wash cycle. If I soak up the water with a washcloth some of the water drains into the washer.

    Same thing here- I wondered if it only happened on certain cycles- but it seems to happen every time. Glad to hear I'm not the only one-- but would love to hear a solution!

Squeee, It's been more than a year since you posted this so I guess you must know the answer. It sounds like a Visit from an engineer(?) I've got exactly the same problem with a Servis Easilogic 1500 and would appreciate knowing what you had to do to resolve the issue.

SOURCE: Fabric Softner won't dispense

fabric softener goes into the dispenser. it may be a full blown solenoid valve -or- a flapper type of solenoid valve. operation of the solenoid operates a flapper to let the softener out. go to an appliance repair site to find the solenoid - appliance parts dot com or repair clinic dot com.

SOURCE: Problems with fabric softener

you either have low cold water pressure being caused by the screens on both ends of the cold waterline being clogged by sediment or one of the solinoids for the water inlet is bad. try removing cold water hose and cleaning both screens if that doesnt help youll need a solinoid

SOURCE: Fabric softener compartment problem.

I have this problem as well.. All washing machines manufactured nowadays are energy effficient, which means that they don't use as much water as the older models. This can result in a build-up of bacteria in the top part of the washing machine, which is clogging up the bit where the water comes through to flush the fabric conditioner into the drum. What I have to do every so often, is to take the top off the washing machine and clean out the layer of black slime that has built up, blocking the holes where the water goes into the washing machine. Another contributory factor is that the usual program used is a 40 degree wash, which is not hot enough to completely flush the machine through. Manufacturers recommend running a 90 degree wash once a month with just washing powder in iit, no clothes. Hope this is some help

Whirlpool duet washer fabric softener dispenser does not empty


Hi there
I wonder why, mine does though I never use a fabric softener, the water just runs through. It must be clogged somewhere, the only solution I have is the old one. The needle and the thread,try puting a needle through then pull the thread back and forth.
I hope it works

its normal for this to occour, atvery least nothing to worry about, the unit "floods" the compartment to release the fabric softener, and uses a syphoning action to empty chamber, regardles sof usingor not waterenters the chamber, and depending on level determines if it empties or not

Fabric Softener dispenser


thats quite normal, espessially if you do not use the fabric softener, the compartment empties through an overflow siphon action, so if there eis nothing in the compartment the area is flooded but cannot cause siphon action, not an issue at all

Soap Dispence problem on GHW9200LW


In applications with low water pressure, insufficient water
volume is introduced during the fabric softener dispensing
portion of the cycle to flush the dispenser.
RESOLUTION:
The holes in the dispenser housing were enlarged to allow
a greater volume of water to flow through the fabric
softener dispenser to properly dispense the fabric softener.
Order and replace the dispenser housing, Part

Whirlpool Duet dispenser problem


this may be due to a faulty solenoid, if the cold water is flowing into the machine under normal use at the start, then check the solenoids as the conditioner has its own, the solenoids are just behind the body where the water pipes fit to the machine, they have 2 wires on each one, and are tested for circuit when machine is unplugged. stat there, hope i have helped
