Clogged fabric Softener

I have noticed that the fabric softener section of my pull out drawer is staying full of fabric softener. It doesn't seem to be dispensing it. Is there a way to clean out the drawer or solve the problem?

    My fabric softner will not drain into the washer. I have pulled the drawer out and cleaned it, but it is still clogged.

    While cleaning the fabric softener cup, it fell down into the agitator. How do I re-attach it?

I had the same issue, and ran vinegar through the fabric dispenser with a load of towels. Not only did it solve the 'sour towel' problem I had with that load, it also cleared my fabric softener section. Now, I water down all fabric softner when I use it, which is less frequently!

Kenmore frontloader fabric softener dispenser is clogged


There should be pins located somewhere on the dispenser or a grey thing located inside the dispenser, push it down and that will release the dispenser from the washer. Afterwards you can put in in the dishwasher, this should clean out any clogging residue.

The fabric softner reivore wont take in/ empty the fabric softner


I had this problem also. I pulled the drawer out, then removed the softener assembly. (the blue piece) In the front there is a hole that lets the softener liquid drain into the funnel to go into the machine. It was clogged with a little bit of dried up softener liquid. Cleared that and it worked fine. We've had the washer for 3 years and have had to do this several times. Seems to be a problem.

MY FABRIC SOFTENER JUST SITS IN DRAWER


You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Kenmore Elite fabric softener won't drain


Is the dispenser full? It could be that it is a bit clogged. I would try just pouring a little very hot water in for several loads and using dryer softener sheets during this time. Let's see if we can unclog it .

Bleach and fabric softener dispensers full of water


This is a problem common to virtually all front-loaders. Pull the dispenser drawer right out (it is designed to come right out - you might just need to give it a bit of a jiggle to get it past the stop) Remove the cover/caps from the drawer (sometimes this is a snap-on cover over the back of the drawer, sometimes a top-hat shaped cover over the siphon spigots). Give everything a thorough clean off with hot water (scrubbing with an old toothbrush helps), then reassemble. A.
