    Softener won't take. I cleaned it free of mildew and took out the detergent/softener compartment and cleaned that. Everything looks to work fine, but I'm thinking it is a problem with something that sucks the softener up.

The water isn't filling into water softner for setting up


Depending on the washing machine, it is supposed to have a gizmo inside the softner housing that triggers the water during the rinse cycle to flow into the softner dispenser. Sometimes, they go missing or are clogged with hardened softner. Open the door fully open and carefully prize the entire housing out. Clean it with hot water and put it back in. Some machines require the slide in tray be raised about 70 degrees (most common) and then pull out, others require a downward angle.

Not dispensing bleach or softner


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.
