Hold drawer under slow running tap. Run water through the hole where the blue softner insert goes. If the water comes out the bottom of the drawer. Its not blocked. Probably be the Cold inlet valve. Usualy has 2 connecters on it.

Re: Softner still in the draw

The detergent/softner dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distribution to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle)are done by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next step !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test with a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!

The bleach and softner dispenser does not work. The liquid softner would still be there at the end of the wash - never dispensed. I took out the dispenser and cleaned it, but no change. When I leave the...

Don't know if this is the answer, but my dispensers stayed filled also. repairman said the water wasn't flowing into the machine quickly enough and therefore not tripping the sensor that told the machine when to disburse the softener and/or bleach. He took the cold watersupply line loose, and the mesh was full of sediment. He said it wasn't necessary to replace the mesh. Sure enough, it started working immediately. He did the same for the hot water wasn't clogged.

The fabric softner release has stopped working

Most likely the fabric soft dispenser is clogged . this happens when you wash alot in cold water the left over fabric softner get very pasty and can clog it up. You can try filling the dispenser with hot water and run a cycle with hot water this should unclog the dispenser .

My machaine no longer takes the softner when on rinse .

open the soap drawer when softener should be taken and see if there is a jet of water into the conditioner box. if not, a common cause is the jets in the roof of the box blocked. poke a hairpin in the holes in the roof of the box and see if this cures the problem. if the rinse water does come in, this means that the actual water valve is ok
