Fabric Softner not leaving dispenser

My LG washing machine model number wm0532hw has a fabric softner dispenser and its not working properly, when fabric softner is added and the cycle calls for it to drain the water mixes with the softner but doesn't drain. I checked the drain holes on the dispenser and everything is clear. If you don't add softner the dispenser fills with water during it's cycle and drains properly.

Run some vinger through it. Fabric Softner leaves a filmy residue that can clog it up.

The auto dry sensor cycle shuts down before clothes are totally dry -paul

Hello Paul,

The problem with your dryer very likely is that the sensor bar is dirty and needs to be cleaned...especially if your using fabric softner sheets they leave a coating on the sensor bar and it cant properly read that the clothes arent yet dry.
Its very easy to clean the sensor bar,just need to use some rubbing alcohol and the green scrubby side of a kitchen sponge and clean the sensor bar,then rinse with plain water.

Automatic sensor drying

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. As with most things each manufacturer seems to have their own terminology or "exclusive features" for their products. To answer your question, in a word...Yes. As a general rule "sensor" does indicate an "auto dry" cycle when properly maintained ( as long as the sensors aren't contaminated by way of "wax" build-up over the surface...clean regularly with a rag moistened by "white vinegar" if you us fabric softner or dryer sheets etc. ) and vented that will shut the dryer "off" automatically when sensing the items are dry...depending on the options and cycles selected of course. Hope this answers your question and thanks for visiting FixYa today. Please take a moment and rate the answer if satisfied or let me know if you require further assistance. macmarkus :)

I am having trouble with the sensor heat it only heats when I use the minutes and I have no manual

When you look inside your dryers drum you should be able to see two shinny metal strips on the back of the dryer, this is the location. these test moisture by grounding out when wet cloths touch the two strips, a build up of fabric softner can cause these to stop working. Take some very fine sandpaper and clean the sensors and try again. I hope this will solve your problem.

Sensor dry timer problem

Clean off the moisture sensor bars. They are the silver curved strips about 4 inches long inside the drum near the lint fitler. If you use fabric softner sheets, a waxy build up will coat the bars. The dyer can no longer sense the damp clothes, so it goes into the cool down and then shuts off. Time dry bypasses the moisture sensor.

Lint filter going off after 5 minutes then shutdown

Hello folks try this if you have not gotten this resolved. Your dryers have 2 sensor systems, the first one test the clothes for moisture, the second for the heat. The 1 sensor system drops resistance when the wet clothes are put in the dryer. the shutting down after 5 minutes and lint filter light coming on could be that the dryer isn't sensing the moisture. Now for the fun part, the entire inside of the drum and paddles is the moisture sensor. Try cleaning the inside of the drum with a cleaner to remove any detergent or fabric softner residue. This is crucial if you are using fabric softner sheets as they coat the drum. Also wash the lint filter with soap and water so the water goes straight thru instead of puddling up. Remember to also clean the condenser as this can trigger this issue as well. Hope this helps
