Question about Kenmore Elite 45986 Front Load Washer
My kenmore front loader HE washer doesn't dispense the fabric softner into the washer
Try removing the dispenser cup - and washing the inner cup thoroughly- run a sanitary cycle with whites and chlorine bleach mold and mildew likes to haunt these front loaders - be sure to run a bleach hot water cycle once weekly

I've had this same problem and solved it by removing the detergent/bleach/softener dispenser drawer from the machine and seriously cleaning out all of the "gunk" from the drawer and from inside the drawer area on washer. Sometimes I have had to repeat the cleaning and then the fabric softener begins dispensing again. I have model # 417.43042200 but it may work on all the Kenmore front loading washers.

you can try putting a dishwashing tablet in it with some hot water and let it sit overnight ...the tablet has something in it made to desolve build up for water ,soap,ect...and it safe to the washer and to you too.I used one in my water drain on a water in the door ice box worked like a charm.
