SOURCE: washing machine problem

at the back of the conditioner compartment there is a syphon. check the tube of the syphon is clear. put on rinse and at the point the conditioner should be taken, open the drawer and check that there is a jet of water into the conditioner area. if not, there are some holes in the roof of the top of the box. these may be blocked. clear with a hairpin or similiar

SOURCE: Fabric conditioner drawer

Try cleaning inside the the machine where the soap dispenser drawer fits into. Sometimes this builds up with lots of soap and fabric conditioner residue and stops the conditioner from going through.
Take the drawer back out and look inside where it goes to see if there is a build up of soap etc...
hope this helps

SOURCE: the fabric softener drawer is

Remove drawer and thoroughly clean, you must have a blockage in it for the water to remain.
Make sure that you clean every piece of it, taking all the components out.
Please leave feedback.

SOURCE: fabric conditioner drawer does not empty

The inlet to the conditioner compartment is probably blocked.
Get a thin piece of flexible wire and make a right angled bend on the end about 1" long, and poke it into all the holes u can see in the top of the dispenser compartment, particularly the ones at the front right side.
This should solve the prob.
Plz rate this solution .
Thanks

Hi. the drawer into which the fabric conditioner is poured, is not being flushed, i.e conditioner remains in drawer. Any idea how I unblock the water inlet ? Thanks


usually the drawer has a plastic tube with cap in it.remove the small cap and clean/wash with water until the residues of the previous conditioner is cleared. then put back the small plastic cap. hopefully it will drain properly on your next use of conditioner

LG washing machine. Fabric softener not being taken by dispenser drawer. It has been washed and the drain pump and filter also cleaned out. Problem remains so why is the conditioner not being taken?


Please remove power of the unit and this will reset the unit. Now select a program that is different from the earlier one and see if this works. Also check once again on the filter and check the dispenser drawer to be in place. Set the water level once again.Hope this helps.

Fabric softener compartment won't drain. How can I


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.

If this does not work, pull out the dispenser drawer far enough to be able to just see the softener tray, select the (final?) rinse and check that water is entering the tray. If it isn't there is a fault with the water distribution and an engineer call is required ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
