Question about Belling SGE12X Front Load Washer / Dryer
The 3rd compartment we fill with softener, but it doesn't add to the wash! And the compartment is always full of water when we don't use softener. Looking at it, it can't go into the wash as it only enters in when the compartment fills above the hole
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.

Hello Bruce - The drawer requires two valves to open to dispenser: the bleach valve and the wash valve. If one fails, it will not fill the softener compartment. If there isn't any cold water supplied to the unit, it will not rinse the softener or the detergent. Possibly the washer may have a faulty water valve or an incorrect water supply to the unit. Also, if the softener dispenser cap is not installed properly, that can cause it to not rinse out as well. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I personally recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Hello - There are several things that could cause the fabric softener to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is fabric softener? If it is fabric softener, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the fabric softener dispenser with water. The fabric softener dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.
When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the fabric softener solenoid is energized and water flows into the fabric softener dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and softener and water flow into the tub.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is pure softener you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the softener solenoid and a volt meter is required.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. **** will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. The instructions for cleaning the dispenser should be located on page 43 of the use and care guide that came with the washer.
If you don't have the use and care guide these instructions will help. Open the dispenser until it stops. In the left rear corner of the dispenser, there is a release that is labeled push. Press down on the push area and you can slide the dispenser drawer out.
Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.
To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the fabric softener compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out.
Hope this information proves to be helpful however if it is ineffective please contact a professional to move forward accurately.
