The machine is only using a small amount of the fabric softner after the cycle most of it is still in the drawer.

SOURCE: Fabric Softner Drawer
Usual cause is old conditioner blocking the siphon (built into the drawer) which is there to suck the stuff out. Try taking the drawer right out, and giving it a thorough wash in very hot water. The siphon is often made in two parts - if you can get the top off, then do so, giving the inside of the cap and the tube which goes through the bottom of the drawer a good wash too. A.

Your machine possibly has a defective water inlet valve which is preventing water from entering the dispenser channel to flush the fabric softner into the machine. The inlet valve in inside of your machine right where the washer hoses attach. the solenoid valves on the inlet will need to be checked with a multimeter to verify if they are working properly.

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.

SOURCE: fabric softner does not empty
I had a similar problem and removed the complete dispenser drawer and washed it in with hot water. The small inner cups for the fabric softener and bleach should be removed and the hot water directed into the small "stand pipes" on the back side of the covers. It appears the fluids in the cups are siphoned out and if the pipes are clogged at the bottom there will be no flow. Also is the plate is not fully seated, the siphon effect is will not work.
Also, my wife said she does not use the cheaper brands of fabric softener anymore because we think that might have caused some of the clogging.
As a side note, if you remove the top of the washer, there is an adjustable dial where you can fine tune the amount of liquid dispenced. You can try adjusting that too. I think my final fix was to clean the back side of the face plates inside the dispenser and ensure they are fully seated to allow the proper siphon effect.

SOURCE: Softner drawer fills with water
Hi, this is a not to uncommon fault on washing machines, but is easy to fix. What has happened is that the softener has built up in the outlet tube (it's actualy part of a small siphon system which ensures that the softener part of the drawer empties fully). Just take out the drawer, you will find a small resistance to withdrawing it but dont worry! You can now lift off the cover of the softener section and you will see the tube. Clean out the tube and wash everything in hot, NOT BOILING! water. Put it all back and that should be that...........Hope this helps....Let me know?.....Regards.....Cornwellnet (UK)
