There is no exact time to add the softener in your life when you know about it, just buy it, because it will provide life saving benefits by providing you chemical free water without sodium, calcium ions and improve quality of water by converting hard water into soft and delicious water to taste. You can add water softener as early as possible to live pure.

Dear seymour,

Fabric softener is one of those things we don’t think much about, but use frequently. How does it work? How is it used? Fabric softener is essentially a chemical cocktail that helps soften the fibers in textiles. It makes them feel less harsh and has anti-soiling and anti-staining properties. With such names as Diethylenetriamine, Aminoethylethanolamine and Triethylenetetramine, these chemicals sound like something out of a science-fiction movie, but they are mostly byproducts of animal fats. Fabric softeners come in two types: liquids and dryer sheets. The liquid softeners are added to the rinse water for each load of clothes. Dryer sheets are paper or sponge-like pieces that are coated with the dry softener and are added to the dryer for every load. Some liquid softeners tout that they will leave clothes brighter and prevent discoloration from chlorine. These claims must, of course, be evaluated by each person.

Fabric softeners are used in any form to help make clothing feel softer and to prevent static cling. Anyone who has unloaded a batch of towels from the dryer in winter knows exactly what static cling is. Dryer sheets lubricate the textile fibers to reduce static electricity generated by the drying process. Liquid softeners serve much the same purpose.
There is a great amount of information about fabric softeners on the Internet, and while browsing, a person will undoubtedly come up on Web sites saying the chemicals in fabric softeners are dangerous and can cause a whole host of illnesses and allergies. There is no doubt that some people are allergic to the chemicals and/or dyes in fabric softener. They can cause rashes or upper respiratory distress. Some manufacturers have started producing dye and fragrance-free liquid fabric softeners in response to this problem. Some small companies also produce a vegetable-based, dye and fragrance-free softener that is biodegradable and less likely to cause allergic reactions. There are also some ways of softening the laundry without using any kind of commercial fabric softener. Vinegar and baking soda soften the fibers naturally. A person can add one-fourth cup baking soda to the load at the beginning of the wash cycle, and then a half-cup of white vinegar during the rinse cycle. Another home recipe suggests diluting 1 cup of glycerin in a gallon of water and using one-half cup of the mixture per load of laundry. Still another method uses three parts water to one part commercial hair conditioner. Fabric softener should only be used with standard fabrics. Fine washables such as linen or silk should not have any kind of fabric softeners used on them, if they are machine washable. The chemicals can destroy the look and feel of a fabric like linen, and dull colors in silk. However, most standard cotton and polyester blends are safe with the use of fabric softener. Dryer sheets are a blessing for socks and towels, since these items seem to be most susceptible to static cling. Liquid fabric softener can also usually be diluted to one-fourth strength in order make it last. There is usually no discernible loss of softness or increase in static cling when the softener is diluted. Each person needs to decide whether using a commercial fabric softener is appropriate. Those with allergies or very sensitive skin may want to consider a home recipe, since they are made of ingredients that are readily available. People also need to remember to keep the fabric softener from their fine or delicate washables, especially linen and silk.

Why does my Samsung washing machine discharge the fabric softener before the washer has added the water?


The addition of the softener is dependent on the level of the liquid in the drawer.
If you add too much softener to the drawer compartment then the liquid will immediately flow into the drum of the machine, you need only to add softener up to or preferably just below the line marked in the compartment. Also, if you slam the drawer shut then a wave of softener level may cause it to flow into the machine before the start of the program.

Where do you put fabric softner


Manually: If you're adding fabric conditioner by hand, be sure not to add it during the wash cycle. The washcycle will clean away much of the softener, so add it during the rinse cycle. Also, try to avoid direct contact with fabrics to avoid stains; instead, pour Downy into the deeper pockets of water.

How do you add softener to a rinse cycle. The lid is locked


You add your softener at the same time you add your soap. Your machine should have one tray for each. When the machine starts you don't have to worry about the softener it will enter the wash on it's own. Good Luck Friend.

Where do I put fabric softener?


Most washers have a receptacle you can put the softener in at the beginning. Look for that (usually in the middle of the agitator). Make sure you add the correct amount of water. Otherwise, wait until the rinse water is running to add the softener or you may get spots on your clothes if added directly to dry clothes.

Water softener


Marsena, I am at the point where I'm going to call a repairman. I'm very disappointed that I have a brand new appliance, and no means of having this issue handled. This is a great dishwasher otherwise, but I could not recommend it due to this problem.

Htwp1200doww where does fabric softner go


You have to do it manually. Ugh. See below from manual:

Liquid Fabric Softener (Manually add during rinse cycle)
1. Turn OPTIONS knob to FABRIC SOFTENER
2. Measure liquid fabric softener carefully, following instructions on the bottle, and add during the rinse cycle.

OPTIONS (on some models)
Set this option when planning to manually add fabric softener during the rinse cycle or when you use extra detergent or bleach to clean hazily soiled items. It provides an enhanced rinse.

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

My Bosch washing machine doesn't add the softener from its compartment


The first thing you should do is check the compartment from the fabric softener. If something is blocking the exit of the softener, the machine will not add it.

If you checked the exit or the holes in the valve of the fabric softener compartment and nothing seems to be stuck there, there could be a problem with your washer's timer. Check the timer and get a replacement for it.
