Machine wont fill with water. Either just takes powder/conditioner from drawer and then just stops with door locked or starts to turn without water in it and clothes are dry when cycle finished.

Washing machine will not take fabric conditioner into wash cycle

Ensure it is on the correct setting for the conditioner first, then check the water supply nozzle in the detergent compartment. If not joy just add it to the powder?

Hi I am experiencing a problem with my hoover washing machine, when the machine is turned on it is not taking the powder from the drawer or filling with water?. It is a Family 1300 mega load hope you can...

There are a few reasons that you are having this problem.

It's possible that the hose that supplies the water is blocked. If the drawer and powder are totally dry, the solenoid that supplies the water to the detergent drawer may be bad. Some machines use hot water to dispense the detergent and cold water to dispense fabric softener, so both must be available to that type of machine regardless of the wash/rinse temperature selection.

I'm not familiar with Hoover. If you open the drawer and see a tab that stops the drawer, depressing the tab may allow the drawer to be removed and cleaned at a sink. They are not dishwasher-safe and must be cleaned by hand.

If this does not help, please repost your question.

Good luck from Detroit, MI, USA.

My washing machine wont take in the fabric conditioner, why?

Ensure the compartment hasn't filled with water.
Remove the drawer that holds the conditioner and clean it in warm water, the conditioner is normally siphoned into the machine and the ducts get blocked with lumps of conditioner.

My machine no longer takes in fabric softener since I removed and cleaned the drawer. Behind the drawer was full of gunk and I cleaned that to the best of my ability and washed the drawer but now it...

(I have just copied this from my previous problem solution!) Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 14:29 Tues afternoon- just after lunch and before going outside to do some (necessary) gardening!

Very common problem- often reported as 'water coming out of the tray and down the front of my machine' or 'there is still water and conditioner in the tray' !!!

What is often missed when cleaning the conditioner drawer is the tube/pipe bit which (normally) sticks up at the back. It has to be completely clear of any softener/powder mix. I clean ours quite regularly with something like a small screwdriver to literally scrape this gunge out- I blame my wife but don't tell her!
The pre-wash and wash trays have open ends because the powder sits in them until the water washes them into the machine. Because conditioner/softener is already fluid it would run straight into the machine as you poured it.
What should normally happen is that the fluid plus water siphons down into this tube and then into the drum.
I'm sure this should cure you problem- and probably your friend's!
Cheers, John C

Fabric conditioner drawer

Try cleaning inside the the machine where the soap dispenser drawer fits into. Sometimes this builds up with lots of soap and fabric conditioner residue and stops the conditioner from going through.
Take the drawer back out and look inside where it goes to see if there is a build up of soap etc...
hope this helps

i had the problem of my brand new washing machine not taking the conditioner and the customer service advisor rightly guessed that i was using concentrated liquid and advised me to dilute it with warm water then put it in the drawer because sometimes the liquid is too thick for the machine to take.try this!!!!! regarding the powder why not put it directly in the machine or buy tablets and do the same with those
