    Bleach and softener filled with water in mine, makes it so I can't fill them with the bleach as needed. Unknown why it's happening.

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. WE JUST ADD WATER TO THE SOFTENER CUP AND IT WILL FORCE SOFTENER INTO THE MACHINE, THEREBY KEEPING THE CUP CLEAN. I HAVEN'T HEARD OF ANY SOLUTIONS , BUT WOULD LIKE TO KNOW OF ONE. OTHERWISE MACHINE IS FINE.

SOURCE: fabric softener dispenser won't drain the fabric softener.

Not sure if you already did this, but try pulling the face plates off inside the dispencer and take it to the sink and run very hot water into the "stand pipe" that projects off the back of the face plate to make sure they are clear and no old crusty products are in the hole.. Then put them back in and push down hard and make sure they are fully seated.
If the plates are loose and not seated or clogged, there will be little or no siphon effect to draw the fluids out of the dispenser. At least thats how it seems to work
Also, if you pull the top off the washer, there is an adjustment on top of the dispenser to adjust the dispensing ratios I believe.
I just did that procedure the other day on my machine and the wife said it works good now.
Let me know it it works for you, I was wondering if it was just a coincidence.

HI. your model has a dispenser solenoid for the fabric softener dispenser on this unit. If the solenoids are out or malfunctioning, it will render the dispenser useless. i recommend checking the solenoids on the fabric softener dispenser for continuity. The resistance should be 1100+- 7%. replacing this blown solenoid will fix this issue. Remember. the dispenser valve will not function without a working solenoid.


please rate and god bless.

SOURCE: Fabric softener stays in drawre

We just had a tech come out to fix this problem for us. Essentially, the problem is that the fabric softener builds up and gets clogged. He cleaned out a solid hunk of frabric softener gunk, and suggested that we dilute our fabric softener with water to keep this buildup from happening again.

SOURCE: which compartment does my detergent/fabric softener go in?

You can get all of Whirlpools user guides here:
http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001/ifu/home Generally the one one the left - is for pre-wash (if clothes really soiled), the middle one is for powder (if you use it) and the last one is for softener or bleach.
I just use liquitabs - which go directly into the drum, and fabric softender.

Fabric softener premature release


In my case it was simply a matter of cleaning the nozzles that spray the water into the MAIN DETERGENT compartment. Turns our that when the washer was filling up, some nozzles were partially clogged and were directing water to the side where the softener compartment was, causing the fluid level to rise and therefore releasing the softener early. The washer was NOT spraying water in the softener side, what happens is that the dispenser tray is configured in a way that when the fluid reaches a certain max level in the softener/bleach trays, it completely drains. A way to test for this problem would be to completely dry the softener tray and start the wash cycle like you normally would (including detergent), only without adding any softener to the tray and see if after filling there is any water in the softener tray, this would prove that the water is coming from the other side.

You should use HE detergent following the directions for that detergent. You can add liquid fabric softener. Make sure to fill the appropriate compartment to the Min line if you are doing a small load.

I've never used a washer that drained into a sink (always had a stand pipe). However, I suspect that the gummy residue is the excess softener that was removed in the rinse cycle. Try rinsing the sink with hot water after a laundry. This is part of the procedure to clean the inserts and detergent/bleach/fabric softener drawer when you get a build up in the drawer. In the future, use less fabric softener in the washer. Alternately, skip the fabric softener in the washer but use a dryer fabric softener.

The manuals for most Frigidaire appliances are available from http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals .
The direct link for the manual (in English) for the is: http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodinfo_pdf/Webster/134609000een.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How to use fabric softener


On this machine the compartment is built to hold your softener until it is time to be dispensed. So put in your softener (and bleach if you are using it) at the beginning of the load when you are adding your detergent. The washer will flush the fabric softener cup during the rinse fill to make sure it comes in at the right time for you.
Hope this answers your question!

Try this. Run a load of a few towels with no soap, no bleach, no fabric softeners. Set wash water temp to hot. After hot water enters and begins to wash, stop the washer and open the door. Pour in one cup of vinegar (white is fine.) Run the entire wash cycle.

-Buy a supply of High Efficiency Washing detergent (marked "HE") and do not over fill the detergent cup (use a little less than the directions say, never more.)

-Buy a name brand supply of fabric softener with a scent you enjoy and can recognize.

Run the next weeks loads of wash (no need to use Hot water any more) and report back here with how things are smelling. OK?

Detergent drawer filled with water


remove the drawer and clean the siphon it sounds as if it is blocked up either with powder or concentrated fabric softener. this should fill up with water and then empty itself due to gravity. the siphon should look like an upside down cup on a cylinder.
