There will be a small qty of water left after the wash. However if the compartment is full then the syphon tube is probably blocked.
Lift the flap of conditioner compartment, you will see a round 'post' in the middle to the rear of it. Pull this gently off. Give it a thorough clean and also take whole soap draw to sink and rinse. Where you removed the 'post' flush through with hot water. Replace the post (will click into place).
You should now be good to go.

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: Fabric conditioner drawer

there is a siphon tube in the fabric softener dispenser - the softener/water is siphoned from this container via the tube. The best way to clean this is a Q-Tip - stuff it down the hole (taking the dispenser drawer out of the machine makes this easier) this should clear up the problem.

After each wash the softener drawer full of water


This is quite normal. Unlike the soap drawer, which is an open ended slot where the liquid detergent candrain out or powder be washed out, the softner compartment is a small reservoir that has a raised tube inside it. It relies on water coming into the reservoir and washing the softner upwards, beyond the level of the raised tube, where it then washes down into the machine. Because of the way that this works, it's not uncommon for the water that washed out the softner to remain, filling the reservoir afterwards. Since the softner is more dense than the water, when you refil, the water will be pushed out of the raised tube by the new softner you put in.

This said, if you are noticing more than there used to be, it is possible that there is a slight blockage in the tube. You may want to lift the cover that goes over the conditioner compartment and make sure the tube is free of any blockages or residual congealed conditioner.

Usually, there is a clip at the rear of the soap drawer. Pull the drawer out to its fullest extent, depress the clip and this will allow you to take the drawer all the way out. Then you can clean the entire drawer with ease. Some models have no clip and by putting slight downward pressure on the draw and giving a sharp tug when it is fully pulled out will allow you to remove it - Just use some common sense here, if it doesn't appear to want to come free, don't force it. Come bac here, drop a note on the thread and I will provide some more detailled help :-)

Liquid soap/softener dispenser remains full of water, primarily on the softener side, AFTER the solutions have been dispensed and the wash cycle has been completed. The dispenser tends to accumulate...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(pre-typed complete guidance notes!)
This is a common problem with many machines.
I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener tray which is causing water to overflow so it needs a thorough clean,
paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD ;-0)

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.
One of those should enable you remove it
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 has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

This is inevitably caused by a blockage. The small fabric conditioner compartment in the soap dispenser drawer has a removable plastic cap. This cap fits on the top of a tube which has a hole running through it where the water should siphon through.

When the time comes for the fabric conditioner to be released, cold water enters the small compartment and just washes the conditioner over the top and down the dispenser to the tub. When the water stops flowing, all that is left is the clear water. This water should siphon up the inside of the cap and down the tube.

This tube often gets blocked with the conditioner and if you remove the dispenser drawer and take off the cap you can give the whole thing a good clean out. If the cap is missing, the siphoning will not occur.

To test the function, hold the soap drawer under the tap and allow the water to fill the fabric compartment to overflowing. When you turn off the tap, the remaining water should slowly siphon out of the hole under the cap.

Fabric softener drawer filling with water


lift out the blue part of the conditioner compartment and you'll see attached a tube at the end.
clean this out completely.
also check the tube in the compartment is clear.
poke a cotton bud down it to clear it.
if you want to check to see if its worked take the drawer out(blue button at back of drawer) put the blue grid back in the dispenser and fill the compartment up under the tap ,hold the drawer level.
as it gets full you should see water start to flow out the back ,turn the tap off and if its worked the compartment will slowly empty.
these were a big problem for hotpoint and concentrated conditioners will block it regularly.

The conditioner part is always full of water and does not take down any fabric condtioner that is put in. Have cleaned drawer an inside but does not work.


Take out the drawer and clean the compartment and pipe at the end of the drawer with hot soapy water - washing up liquid works well. Clean all around it. Use a pipe cleaner, cotton buds or piece of coiled curtain wire to ensure that the U shaped pipe is clear of obstruction. Pull it back and forward to dislodge any accumulated fabric conditioner. To show this is working OK, put it in the sink and fill up the compartment with water until it is overflowing then stop. The water should drain out of the compartment on its own.

Next, where the drawer fits in the machine clean the water exit above the drawer with a washing up brush. This can appear brown or white depending on your water type. If this is OK try running the machine. If there is still a problem, remove the drawer again and turn off the power at the mains. Use something like a paper clip to poke all the holes in the water dispenser area above the drawer. There are lots of them so some patience might be required. If you live in a hard water area it could be blocked with limescale in which case an application of a descaling mousse or spraty will assist. Once complete, make sure you rinse the drawer area, drawer and put the drawer back in and run the machine on a short cold fill wash cycle. Put some fab con in the drawer to test that the machine drains it correctly. A good idea is to slightly water down fab con concentrate as it will eventually clog up the dispenser. If all is well then there will be no fab con left. If it is still there then you will need to get into the water dispensing area to see what is wrong. Occasionally the mechanism can get jammed, lose a spring or just get broken, in which case it will need replacing.
