Whirlpool duet fabric softner problem

When I first started using the machine, I would fill the fabric softner and at the end of the full cycle the fabric softner and detergent spots would be empty. Now at the end of a full cycle when I try to do the next load of laundry the fabric softner spot is full of water. Why?

    Yes, I think it is just water. The problem is, I have to take the dispenser out of the machine to empty the water. I don't have any room to put the fabric softner in. I shouldn't have to do this with a brand new, expensive washing machine. Any suggestions.
    Thanks.

    I'm having the same problem. Water is filling up the fabric softner section after the load is done so for the next load, I can't put any fabric softner in because of all the water, it start spilling out once I put the softner in. It's backed up I think from putting too much Tide in the wash cycle, how do I unplug it?

According to the whirlpool FAQ's page, that is normal. They stated that at the end of the cycle, fresh water is used to clean the detergent holders. Not sure that I believe them though.

It obviously is backed up or splashed in from the wash. And if it is just water why worry about it.

If I put soap in fabric softner spot can I just add water and let it drain out?


You could remove it and clean it out. Or you can add water a few times and put it in a spin. It will only release in the spin cycle.

Hello,
Yes the detergent and softener will stay in the dispenser drawer until the correct time for them to be dispensed. The detergent is dispensed during the main wash cycle and the softener will not dispense until the rinse cycle

At beginning of wash cycle when washer is filling also fills the liquid fabric softener and goes in with the laundry detergent then there is no fabric softener for the rinse cycle.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Sounds like the softner valve is stuck open. You would have to open the top and start the cycle and see if the softner valve is getting power to it. If its not and water is comming through it is stuck open and needs to be replaced. If it is getting 120volts to it the control board would have to be replaced.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Remove drawer/ look inside opening of washer ( at the top of opening inside) there is small little holes for the water to come through to fill the fabric softner spot and also bleach spot and detrgent spot. Holes may be pluged use a old tooth bush or some item to clean holes..Hope that helps thanks for voting.

Clothes coming out spotted


Hi Residue builds up inside of washing machines for all sorts of reasons. Many detergents and fabric softeners can leave filmy layers behind. Hard water can cause spotting on both plastic and metal thus ending up with spots on your washing, how to resolve this follow the instructions, 1, use vinegar a bottle and place your machine on the hottest wash cycle and let it run through a full cycle, when finished use a paper towel with vinegar to clean the inside, set machine on a rinse cycle, this may need to be repeated but will solve it, also use gels and liquids instead of powders and descale etc.

"fabric softner staining the clothes"


make sure you delute it with water. yes fabric softner will start to stain your clothes if you use too much of it. I would recomend stop useing it for a while. so you can clean the washer out. There is a product called Washer magic or Affresh that cleans out residues built up in your washer. or you can just run several loads of HOT water and bleach to clean it out. The hot water will melt the left over fabric softner in your washer. Fabric softner is kind of like hardend bacon fat thats what it looks like in your washer after time and if you do not clean your washer it builds up and builds up.
Also i do recomend alternating liquid detergent and powdered detergent. The reason why is powder leaves a residue that liquid takes away and vise versa. try this and let me know how it goes

Mile 864 front loader - clothes come out with new grease marks


Problem will be the use of fabric softner or too much detergent. The stain you are seeing is generally to animal fat that is present in fabric softner, Best solution is to cut back on the amount of softner being used, same with powder.
