Won't take Fabric Softener

My washer won't take the fabric conditioner out at any point in the cycle. I've poured water into the tray to see that syphoning occurs (it does) but if I pull the draw out to see water going into the fabric conditioner compartment - it never does. I can't see how water gets into the fabric compartment - the two inlet valves do the first and second trays respectively, there's no lever / wires / switches on the tray that the timer could use to redirect the flow into the fabric tray. There is a hose that comes from the top of the drum, into the tray near to the fabric conditioner compartment - but, this looks more like an overflow. I can't remove the whole tray as it's fitted under a bar from which the drum is suspended by springs - I'm not sure how to refit the springs (overcoming the tension) if I remove the springs. Anybody got any ideas?

Get a stiff washing up brush and scrub the fill holes above the powder tray. the conditioner fill hole may be blocked or is squirting out sideways. if not there may be a faulty fab cond water valve.

Washer/dryer not taking fabric conditioner, still in the drawer after the wash cycle finished


Normally this works as a syphon. Is the unused conditioner wetter or not? If not, there's no water being put into the dispenser. If so, then the syphon is blocked.

Why won't washing machine use the fabric conditioner


Usually this occurs when the siphon is clogged.

Try pouring warm water into the fabric conditioner tank.

Alternatively, carefully put a piece of kitchen paper towel in the fabric conditioner and run a cycle to see if the paper towel is damp. If not damp, then the washing machine isn't sending water into the conditioner tank.

After each load the "fill bleach cup" is filled with water. I have to take the whole tray out and flip it up-side-down to empty the water. I cannot find where the thing can be clogged. I can't use bleach...


Bleach & fabric conditioners "syphon away" into machine... try adding 1/2 lt water to the bleach compartment, if it then syphons away your syphon is not blocked. If it does not drain you will need to find the syphon cap - genarally just a tube, most manufacturers will make the tube a different colour to the rest of the draw.
If it did drain when water added you may have issues with bleach not being a part of that particular cycle, delicates for example...

Fridgidaire front load will not empty fabric


Hello, W/D here.

There are a couple of reasons why the fabric softener will not dispense. If everything else dispenses properly (detergent and bleach), then I would suspect a bit of plugging. If the softener remains in the dispenser, the water valve above the tray may be sticking. You'll have to get the top up to check it. If there is water in the tray, or some water/softener, then you'll need to look at the overflow cap. Here's how that works: Your dispensing trays for bleach and softener have a raised tube built into them, and each is covered with a loose fitting cap. When water is let into the tray, the level rises under the cap until it overflows, creating a syphon. The softener is literally pulled from the tray, and chased by the water. When the water stops, the tray level continues to drop, until air gets into the cap, breaking the syphon. The cap can be removed and cleaned. Sometimes the tray has to be removed first. Theres a catch towards the rear of the tray.
Best regards, W/D

My washer wont drain out the fabric softner just adds water to it. cleaned the part where i put the softner thinking it was clogged but still happening.


Usually, the softener syphons out from the tray. The tray will have a tube, the tube will have a cap. Water filling the tray forces the liquid around the cap and tube. The falling water (now inside the tube) creates a vacuum-syphon effect.
Pull the tray, remove the cap, clean and try again. Provided the water's getting there, this should help.

Regards! --W/D--

Detergent tray full of water


Hi....Lift the softener cover off the tray and you will find the syphon tube or the cover underneath are blocked. Push some wire through the syphon tube to make sure it is clear and give everything a good wash.

Washing machine problem


at the back of the conditioner compartment there is a syphon. check the tube of the syphon is clear. put on rinse and at the point the conditioner should be taken, open the drawer and check that there is a jet of water into the conditioner area. if not, there are some holes in the roof of the top of the box. these may be blocked. clear with a hairpin or similiar
