How to pull apart fabric softener dispenser

My whirlpool top loader seems to be dispensing fabric softener all around the very top rim of my machine. So when I pull out my clothes and they drag along the top they get fabric softener on them and I have to wash again after cleaning. How do I pull apart the dispenser to clean it. It seems like it should pull apart ie: into 3 pieces - the very top where I put the softener in and then a clear looking cone and then the thing the cone sits in and gets put back into the agitator

Does the fabric softener dispensar come apart?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=136&osCsid=7914776481dcf14414831964a8792e18

Depending on the model, your fabric softener may have a ring around its bottom. Push down or pull up the ring and the dispenser should pull straight up. It doesn't twist off.

Also see the following Sears site. It may have an on-line manual for your machine.

Leaves white clothes gray


Many of the machines are having a similar issue I am trying to find a resolution to fixing this, there are two issues. First Whirlpool has just recently identified a problem with premature bleach dispensing. Another dispensing problem I had is that fabric softener had to be diluted otherwise it would not wash out of the dispenser. And finally, the fabric softener dispenser would still hold a small amount of water after the wash cycle completed.Removing the top of some washers I have found that there is often a lot of stainless steel polish residue around the rim of the machine - which should have been cleaned away before the machine was shipped from Whirlpool. The gray, oily residue was not visible without removing the top of the washer. Knowing now what has caused the dark gray streaks on many peoples laundry.

Fabric softener dispenser


If you cannot get the dispenser cap opened, submerge and soak it in some hot water. Liquid fabric softener is a type of wax that, over a period of time, will harden and clog the dispenser (as you well know by now). In many cases you do not have to take it apart if you just use the hot water method. You may have to rinse and repeat several times. Try this and let me know if you have any luck. If you require further assistance, please post back with your complete model number, so I can see what type of dispenser cap we are talking about. I hope this helps you.

Remove and replace fabric softener dispenser on kenmore model 20952992


I just did it. All you do is pull up on the blue part -- put the fingers of both hands under the rim and pull. It isn't screwed or bolted on. If there's a lot of gunk built up, it's all the harder to pull up. Be prepared for some yucky stuff. It would be nice if that whole section would come out, since you have to clean the area below with Q-tips.
