Fabric Softner won't dispense

I fill the dispenser, turn on the machine, completed full wash cycle and the fabric softner is still there. I have flushed the dispenser with hot water, removed and checked all water lines for clogs. Nothing seems to help. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Fabric softener goes into the dispenser. it may be a full blown solenoid valve -or- a flapper type of solenoid valve. operation of the solenoid operates a flapper to let the softener out. go to an appliance repair site to find the solenoid - appliance parts dot com or repair clinic dot com.

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 .

Fabric softner is building up in dispenser

Same deal - I have to soak up all the residual water in the softener dispenser between washes. (The detergent and bleach compartments are fine).
