I had a similar problem with the fab. softener chamber. Clean
out the buildup and it will drain. To do this, remove the cap and wipe out the softener. Also, be sure to wipe inside the drum, just below the dispenser.
As for a water flow to the dispenser- You will need to remove the plastic portion of the lid. Start with the detergent dispenser, then gently remove the bottom corners of the lid. Then are held by two plastic clasps. Then gently remove the "L" shaped plastic holders. Use a pipe cleaner to clean out the tube where the water flows directly out of the unit, before entering the lid. I did this last night, and it works beautifully!

Siphon dispensers are always holding some water. I would check the level on the machine, not over fill with softener and if not a little water to help it down. The water supply goes to the back wall under the console and a little lower in new machines.

The fabric softener dispenser (and bleach dispenser, same water line) on the Maytag MAH 6700 model works by time (controlled by the circuit board) and water flow from the cold water inlet valve. Check the screen on your cold water inlet. If clean, the water inlet valve may need to be replaced. They (two solenoid units together)are not repairable. If you are mechanically inclined take a look at the cold water inlet valve that has the rubber tubing running to the "bleach" dispensor nipple. It will have a water flow restrictor in it at the inlet valve. On my unit a piece of "stray" plastic was partially clogging the flow restrictor. I carefully drilled the valve out enough to remove the stray plastic. Now both the bleach dispenser and fabric softener dispenser work properly and at the correct times during the wash.
Good luck with your repair!

Hi. your problem is actually a rather complicated one.
Timer and selector switches The timer switch is usually the largest dial on the main control panel. It can be either a mechanical device much like a simple clock, or completely electronic with just a digital readout.
The timer runs the washing machine in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the washing machine components at the correct time and for the correct length of time.
The Start switch is usually part of the timer knob. When you set the timer to the proper cycle, you either pull or push the timer knob to start the cycle.
The selector switches or knobs vary from machine to machine. Most washing machines have one or several switches or knobs on the control panel besides the Timer/Start switch. These let you adjust certain settings; for example, the water temperature, spin speed, timer cycle, and so on. Normally, the washing machine completes the cycle selected on the timer, regardless of how you set these switches and knobs.

I feel the the dispenser valves are not working properly. I have post somewhere in this forum to troublshoot using Service Mode to see if the Dispenser Valves will open.
I'm a DIY owner and know the machine well. If you want repair I suggest moving to a true DIY forum and I will help.
Then repost issue if you want to DIY. If elect to call in a repair service give the Service Company the Model Number and they may ask for the Serial Number. That info is listed on the rear right hand side of the console.......D*ick
