GE Adora washer soap dispenser fills with water

The bleach and softener sections will not empty when used and if not used fill with water that sloshes out when we open the drawer. Why is this happening and how do we fix it?

SOURCE: Bleach and fabric softener dispensers full of water

This is a problem common to virtually all front-loaders. Pull the dispenser drawer right out (it is designed to come right out - you might just need to give it a bit of a jiggle to get it past the stop) Remove the cover/caps from the drawer (sometimes this is a snap-on cover over the back of the drawer, sometimes a top-hat shaped cover over the siphon spigots). Give everything a thorough clean off with hot water (scrubbing with an old toothbrush helps), then reassemble. A.

Addressing your error code: We had the same problem with our washer and couldn't find anyone locally that wanted to even look at it. Hence, I had to find a solution myself. I stumbled onto a sight that had service manuals (not just owner manuals), and found that error code there. What looks like an upsidedown F is actually a lower case T, so the error code is really "tE". This indicates a Thermistor fault.
The Thermistor is located next to the heating element at the botom-front of the drum housing (you will probably have to lay the washer on its back to access it). It is in a soft rubber grommet that protrudes about a half inch out of the housing, just to the right of the heater.
In the case of our washer, when I pulled the Thermistor out of the grommet I noticed some rust on the metal part. I simply rubbed the rust off with my thumb, inspected it again, unplugged and re-connected the connector a couple of times, and tested the washer again.
Results: We have now been using the washer for a couple of days with zero errors, and this was a tenacious fault that interrupted every load before. We are finally happy again with our very expensive appliance. I sincerely hope that this helps you and anyone else with this problem.

SOURCE: Water coming from soap dispenser

We had water pour out of the dispenser of our Kenmore HE2 washer. hot water helped us for one load then i realize that a trapped rag was the problem We were actually able to pull the face cloth out of the intake tube without taking everything apart!
opened the washer door and feel around inside the rubber seals to find where the intake tube connects to the drum (upper-left side). felt a small bit of cloth sticking out of the tube and were able to slowly work it out by pulling back and forth. and pulled it completely out thats all it was try this fi

How do I get the bleach dispenser to drain?


Hello Denise C - There are several things that could cause the bleach to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is bleach? If it is pure bleach, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the bleach dispenser with water. The bleach dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.



When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the bleach solenoid is energized and water flows into the bleach dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and bleach and water flow into the tub.



If the liquid in the bleach dispenser is pure bleach you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the bleach solenoid and a volt meter is required.



If the liquid in the bleach dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. Scum will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the bleach and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub.



Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.



To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the bleach compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out. You may also test the fabric softener compartment the same way.



I do hope this information proves to be helpful.

I only want to know when to put in softener. I forgot my manual. 3 chambers. left side bleach, then soap them I assume softener, but when?


You put it in right away it will not go into the washer until the first rinse unless you fill it above the line on the dispenser. It works off a siffoning action. When it comes to the first rinse the washer puts water into that dispenser. It then overflows into your washer. Also dillute your softener when you put it in the dispenser but dont fill it above the line or else the softener will go into the washer

I just bought a washer and dryer that were used and the previous owner was a smoker. Now all my clothes smell like smoke. Any advice the get the smell out of the machine?


Hello, W/D here.

For a single odor, I would recommend a neutralizing sequence. Use one box of baking soda. Fill the soap dispenser as you would with powdered soap, and pour the remainder into the wash tub. Fill the fabric softener and bleach dispenser cups with an odor remover such as Odor-Cide or Febreze. Add 1/2 the normal amount of detergent for a normal load directly into the tub. Run the washer on the hottest, longest cycle available, with the longest, hottest rinse cycle available (usually this is the sanitary cycle). When the cycle has finished, run another sanitary cycle with 2 cups of bleach in the tub, fill the soap dispenser, bleach dispenser and the softener dispenser with bleach also.
After this cycle runs, run another, normal cycle with white vinegar in the tub and dispensers. This can be a normal cycle.
After all of these cycles, one last regular cycle with about 1/2 the normal amount of detergent in the dispenser should get all of the smell neutralized in the machine.

My Ge Adora washer fabric softner dispenser


You have low water pressure which wont reach the dispenser drawer during rinse cycle. Clean the feed pipe in case there's dirt in the feed gauze located at the back of the machine. The mould on the rubber is dirt in the machinme. A mixture of 1 cap of bleach and 1 small tub of Swarfega mixed with water and put into the drum on an empty wash will stop it geting worse but it cant be removed.

Bosch Washing Machine Softener Tray not emptying


You need to replace the cold water inlet valve. If the machine is older than one year it may be clogged on the side that moderates the cold water to the bleach and softener compartment. Replacing the valve fixed the problem. During the cycle when the softener dispenser fills it should fill quickly and no or little water should be seen in the soap dispenser area. If a lot of water goes into the soap dispense and little into the softener area the valve is clogged.

GE front loading washer softener dispenser does not dispense


After you put your normal softener into the dispenser, top it with water. The remaining water the machine will pour in. You can even try cleaning it with a toothbrush first.
