Remove any parts that you can in the drawer itself ,and thoroughly clean all pieces., and poke wire through syphon tube, to make sure it is clear.
In the drawer compartment get a stiff nylon brush and clean all the inside out as best you can, particularly the top of the compartment.
Plz rate my solution.

Hi ive tried everything but the draw still wont open on my dolce gusto can you help please

If something is broken inside, it will need to be taken apart for repair. Before that, try the following:
  1. Unplug it.
  2. Move the selection lever from cold to hot and back several times. Be sure the lever will move full stroke smoothly. Put the selection lever in the center position.
  3. While firmly pulling the draw outward, "snap" the draw upward.
If that does not work, it will need to be disassembled.

Softener wont add

Please ensure the machine is turned off at the power socket before you do anything.
Have you tried removing the draw? If you pull the draw out on most washers and slightly tilt the draw up and then try and pull further out the draw will come out. (DO NOT USE BRUT FORCE) if it doesn't come out easily then it probably isn't designed to.
If you get the draw out give it a really good wash in hot soapy water, the compartment where the softener goes normally as a piece of plastic that lifts up so you can clean the compartment throughly. Whilst the draw is out also give the inside of the draw compartment a clean out. (PLEASE ENSURE THE POWER IS OFF) Just for safety.
Once you have cleaned the draw replace it and try a full wash and see if that cleared the problem.1_15_2013_10_08_16_pm.jpg

Softner is dispensed in Wash cycle

in the top of your soap draw compartment is a lever that switches the water jets over ( for instance on the main wash the jet arm is directed in the main wash compartment which will take away your main wash powder then it moves the jet are to the sofner compartment on the final rinse ) the jet arm somtimes jams and needs cleaning and the small holes above your draw compartments clog with lime build up the thing to do is take out your draw clean the inside at the top where the holes are and take the top off your machine there are two screws at the back top you will see the little ark on your soap draw it will have a return spring on it gently move it from side to side this will clear any obstuction make sure that it will spring back clean any line around the arm ( make sure you switch unplug your machine before you remove the top)

The softener and bleach compartments are always filled with water. Also, the dispenser drawer is VERY dirty. How do I remove the drawer to clean it?

I have the exact same problem. Ive taken the hoses beneath the drum apart in case it is backed up all the way to the dispenser. Found a bra wire and removed it. Ran another cycle - still the same problem with water in the dispenser - even running down the outside front face of the washer. Not sure what to do next?!?!?!

The softener is not dispensing, most of it, it's staying in the compartment.

It looks like you need to clean the draw out to remove there should be a clip at back top of draw you push down on clip and pull draw out. after this you can clean out all the draw and where the softener compartment is it should come apart. to put draw back in just slot it back in. Hope this helped.

remove soap draw and strip apart as it is in need of a good clean as the liquids are taken by a syphoning process so the draining holes are clogged.

Bobbin thread getting caught

Check your Instruction manual - if you have taken the bobbin case apart to clean it, the shuttle must be reinserted with the little tab pressing against the piece you mention. It is under page 45 - "Caring for your machine" in my book. I missed it the first time I cleaned and oild mine.
