Remove the dispenser drawer by pushing down on the tab at the center back and pulling drawer out. Now, remove the top of the fabric softener compartment and the parts of the soap dispenser and clean them all out. An old toothbrush often helps. Reassemble and replace. They should siphon out now.

SOURCE: My bosch nexxt washer will not drain the fabric

Take out the drawer and clean the compartment and pipe at the end of the drawer with hot soapy water - washing up liquid works well. Clean all around it. To show this is working OK, put it in the sink and fill up the compartment with water until it is overflowing then stop. The water should drain out of the compartment on its own.

Next, where the drawer fits in the machine clean the water exit above the drawer with a washing up brush. This can appear brown or white depending on your water type. If this is OK try running the machine. If there is still a problem, remove the drawer again and turn off the power at the mains. Use something like a paper clip to poke all the holes in the water dispenser area above the drawer. There are lots of them so some patience might be required. If you live in a hard water area it could be blocked with limescale in which case an application of a descaling mousse or spraty will assist. Once complete, make sure you rinse the drawer area, drawer and put the drawer back in and run the machine on a short cold fill wash cycle. Put some fab con in the drawer to test that the machine drains it correctly. If all is well then there will be no fab con left. If it is still there then you will need to get into the water dispensing area to see what is wrong. Occasionally the mechanism can get jammed, lose a spring or just get broken, in which case it will need replacing.

After wash was completed, there are water sitting in fabric softener tray up to the full line


Hello Warren, thank you for your post!
From what you have described there is water filling up the fabric softener tray in your Electrolux washer, EWFLS70JSS. At times water will fill into your fabric softener due to draining and siphoning action however, this is a normal operation within your washer. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Why does water collect in bleach and fabric softener drawer?


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

This is a normal part of the siphoning action of your drawer. You would just remove the dispenser and discard the water. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

I think a sensor is being faulty when you load and go to use the unit. Also might want someone to check out the timer on the unit just in case it is going out on you.

I have an Aqualux 1200 washer/dryer. After the wash cycle the fabric conditioner compartment of the tray is full of water and the fabric conditioner appears not to have been flushed into the machine


If the dispensers are in their proper spot it is normal for some water to be left in the fabric softener dispenser. When you add your softener add water to dilute it as some softeners are very thick and don't dissolve well especially in cold water

F3 error on my whirlpool washer


The problem with the fabric softener not dispensing is not likely related to and F03 error code due to the washer not draining.

For the dispenser problem, I recommend that you pull the dispenser drawer out and clean it thoroughly.
The fabric softener dispenser works on a siphoning principle.
Make sure that the siphon hole in the dispenser is clear and not restricted or plugged.

You can fill the fabric softener compartment with water and make sure that it is siphoning properly while you are cleaning it.
Make sure that the cover is properly replaced on the fabric softener dispenser when the drawer is replaced in the washer.
You can use the diagnostic test described below to test the fabric softener dispenser.
If the softener dispenser does not fill and dispense properly, you could have a failed dispenser valve, a failed control board or a wiring failure between components.

You indicated that you tested the pump and that it is good. You could have a clogged drain hose or a clogged washer drain that would prevent the washer from draining.
You could also have a failed drain pump even though it runs. If the impeller is jammed or damaged, it will not pump out the water in the washer.
You will likely need to unplug the washer and drain the water out of the tub using a wet/dry shop vacuum.
To check the pump and drain hose at the bottom of the washer, remove the bottom front service panel and remove the drain pump. You may find a clog or restriction in the drain pump or connecting hoses. If the drain pump is damaged or will not work, it will need to be replaced.

Use a compatible fabric softener. The fabric softener not only softens fabric and makes clothes smell nice, but they break down and neutralizes detergents.
