Fabric softener is running out at the bottom through a small pipe

I would remove the back panel of machine, then look in from the back of machine to see where the fabric softener is coming from, and where it's supposed to go. There may be a small hose that just disconnected due to vibration. Please let me know what you find. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Where do I add softener?

If your model doesn't have an automatic softener dispenser on top of the agitator, then you just add it directly to the rinse water
i.e. if the top cap on your agitator is flat, there's no optional automatic softener dispenser, if it looks like a cup, you have the dispenser, and that's where you would add your softener.

Hope this answers your question

RTW434OSQO Is there a place to add softner

Actually no. The only thing you can add in your machine is soap and bleach. There is not a fabric softener dispensor in either the agitator or the chassis.

I am not endorsing this product only using it as an example but you can use one of these to automatically add fabric softener post 1st spin cycle:

There are 2 or 3 different variations from several manufacturers out there.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Fabric softener wont drain

REservoir Blocked.

Fabric softeners are abit of a nuisance in many respects.. I would rather stop the machine and manually add it after the first spin.
Why does everything have to be Automatic or nothing?

Fabric conditioner compartment doesnt empty properly. Ive tried cleaning out drawer but still no luck.

If you can remove the dispenser from the machine try soaking it in HOT water. The fabric softeners can cause a wax like build up that can clog the dispenser. If the dispenser will not come out of the machine then pour Hot water into it, cycle the machine and repeat. It took a long time to clog and will take a while to remove the clog(several cycles). This will work but will take time. Mix water with your softener to keep it from cloging again, it will thin the softener and stop the build up. If you add 50/50 water/conditioner shake well and use twice the normal amount so you are getting the full amount of softener/conditioner into the washer. This will help i had a similar problem with my front loading washer.

Our front loading washing machine does not dispense the bleach or fabric softener. both compartments are clean and properly installed. How are they supposed to work???

There is an arm that connects the soap dispenser to the timer .(assuming your washer is a mechanical timer.) This arm moves according the the timer movement. As the program is selected,so will the soap compartments be selected automatically which inturn dispences the softener and or powder. Thing to remember, if you decide to forward the program for any reason, you will also in effect miss that part of the program which could require the softener. If it is a fully automatic unit with an electronic board, all this is done by solonoid switching.

Inglis top load washer smells

Hi Nyree,
Check the center of the agitator, where you add softener.
Remove by pulling up. It will be full of old softener.
It may be necessary to remove the whole agitator ( set screw on bottom).
The inside also gets full of old softener.

Good Luck.

Fabric Softener won't dispense

Suggestion: Possible your inlets to the machine is blocked. Check out the inlet tubes to clear out any blockages. This shd be done after the machine is off and the inlet valve is turned off. Some softeners are thick; you can add warm water 1:1, but this is not the thing in your case....
