SOURCE: fridgidaire front loader washer/ problems with softner dispensor

In the back of the dispenser is a button / lever to press down to remove the entire dispenser. Remove it and take off the cover over the fabric softener / bleach chambers. You may find some junk under the cups in that cover, or in the tubes sticking up through the bottom of the dispenser.
The way this thing works is like this: You fill up the dispenser with the liquid, but that liquid doesn't get up to the top of the tubes. When it's time to dispense, the washer adds water to the appropriate chamber, raising the level to above the tube. The liquid then goes down the tube, creating a suction which (ideally) draws the rest of the liquid up into the cup, over the edge of the tube, and down the dispenser. The washer will add water several times to accomplish this. The system isn't perfect, but it usually works with few moving parts.
If the fabric softener is especially thick, it will have a hard time getting siphoned down through the tube. If it looks as thick after the wash as it did before the wash, the machine isn't adding the water to the cup. I believe on the Frigidaire, there's a separate valve (all part of the same valve assembly) for each dispenser chamber. If it isn't adding the water, you'll have to replace the whole valve assembly.

SOURCE: The fabric softner is not going into my washing machine

hi there just try washing the complete soap drawer again in boiling water leave in there for 10minutes to let the hot water work into the gaps and make sure u take all the holders out of the drawer u sometimes have to use a tooth brush to get into the small holes at the bottom of the little funnel what your softener holder goes over also get a small flat blade screwdriver and clean inside that funnel if thats not clean it will stop softener from going away if this doesnt work still then when your softener is supposed to be taken thru the programme make sure the washer opens the valve for the water to go into the fabric softener holder if it doesnt then the solenoid will need replacing as this could be faulty. LET ME KNOWHOW U GET ON PLEASE PETER

SOURCE: LG Top Loader Fuzzy Logic 5.5. The water

Hi,
No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

LG washer detergent dispenser won't open The dryer is on top of washer


if you are patient, if you are lucky, you can take a very flexible tool like a frosting spatula and work it into the right hand side of the dispenser drawer and work it back and forth while moving the drawer in and out from its stuck position and maybe get it over the top of the softner tray and free the drawer. the top of the softner is popped up a bit and is catching on the top of the dispenser's enclosure top. about an inch or so in from the right. takes luck, skill and most of all patience. not easy but maybe less work than removing the dryer and going into the top of the washer. (if you get it out, then thoroughly clean everything up, then file down the front of the softner cup so it will not happen again--or throw away the softner cup and stop using softner) GOOD LUCK

Ii have a LG WFT9250PP Fuzzy Logic top loader washing machine. I keep getting dirty ****-like marks on my washing.


Run a hot wash with a Descaler which is available form most hardware stores.Marks on washing usually comes from a build up of detergent and softner between drums.

Filmy brown mess in the drum. I don't know what it is.


detergents can be so harsh on metal parts so they somtimes include a waxy substance that prevents corrosion .. this can build up and make a mess as well as smell bad .. fabric softner can build up also .. you can clean it out once in a while using a solution of vinigar and baking soda ... here is a site that might help if you have a top loader .. similar things can be done for a front loader ...

there are commercial "washing machine cleaners" that do about the same thing .. Tide makes one that seems to be good .. you can find that here

Fabric Softner not leaving dispenser


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