Fabric conditioner drawer

My miele washing machine does not take the fabric conditioner from the drawer, water goes in but does not take it out. Have tried running machine on boil wash twice to clean machine, have cleaned powder drawer thoroughly. What else can I do?

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

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.

Bosch maxx 1000 - when finished cycle, leaves central fabric conditioner drawer full of water + trace of condtioner.


Check that the hose that connects the drawer to the tub is clean, fabric conditioner normally gunks up especially on colder wash cycles.

Fabric conditioner not taken or not dispensed.


take out the drawer that the powder and conditioner goes in. the conditioner spout to allow the liquid to empty from the drawer will be blocked with a mixture of powder and conditioner. clear it thru with a sharp screwdriver or similar and wash under the tap. replace back in place should empty fine then. hope this helps.

The conditioner part of the drawer is still blocked. Take the drawer out and turn it over, on the bottom of the drawer you will see what looks like a blanking plug, it's about 1" or so in diameter. Carefully, prise off the plug with a flat blade screwdriver, and you will find lots of sludge blocking the syphon path. Remove syphon and and run hot water through until you can see daylight through the syphon hole where you just removed that blanking plug. Re-fit blanking plug giving it a little tap home. This should sort it.
