Squeee, It's been more than a year since you posted this so I guess you must know the answer. It sounds like a Visit from an engineer(?) I've got exactly the same problem with a Servis Easilogic 1500 and would appreciate knowing what you had to do to resolve the issue.

SOURCE: Problems with fabric softener

you either have low cold water pressure being caused by the screens on both ends of the cold waterline being clogged by sediment or one of the solinoids for the water inlet is bad. try removing cold water hose and cleaning both screens if that doesnt help youll need a solinoid

SOURCE: fabric softener not going into the machine

yes it should come in during the rinse cycle. if its not coming in at all then youll need to replace the valve that goes to the softener. to get to it take the top off the washer. youll see 3 valves where the hose connect. trace the hoses from the dispenser back to see which valve you need to change

SOURCE: Fabric softener compartment problem.

I have this problem as well.. All washing machines manufactured nowadays are energy effficient, which means that they don't use as much water as the older models. This can result in a build-up of bacteria in the top part of the washing machine, which is clogging up the bit where the water comes through to flush the fabric conditioner into the drum. What I have to do every so often, is to take the top off the washing machine and clean out the layer of black slime that has built up, blocking the holes where the water goes into the washing machine. Another contributory factor is that the usual program used is a 40 degree wash, which is not hot enough to completely flush the machine through. Manufacturers recommend running a 90 degree wash once a month with just washing powder in iit, no clothes. Hope this is some help

SOURCE: Water Softner Dispense wont empty - Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 HE3t

I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.

The fabric softener compartment in is full of water. I need to empty this manually prior to each wash . Many, many thanks. Judy


The fabric softener dispenser has to be purged between wash cycles to prevent residue from clogging it. What you are observing is normal operation.

Hi My Bosch WD2460 is not taking in the fabric softener? I have cleaned out the drawer and run a cleaner through the machine it seems that the water isnt even going into the compartment?


the valve for this isnt right
or
its the intakes cold hot filters at the machines valves
or
the valve has failed for softner
usually any front loader
will add cold water perhaps hot if connected
run a cycle and after a couple of rinses will add softner
so it uses the same valve as rince{cold water}
so will be a dule valve and two channels
hot and cold one set of inlets

softener is one move valved ch of cold ...
so its blocked above the soap tray or at the valve
perhaps the value is gubbed
you can look see
could even just be gummed up with soap
its a complex job or out with the pipe cleaners from the local homebrew shop

clean then whole plastics of the machine in the bath of warm water
using some sponges

It is more than likely that the water inlet orifice is blocked.Get something to poke into the hole or holes in the top of the soap drawer compartment over the fabric conditioner compartment.

Fabric conditioner compartment doesnt empty properly. Ive tried cleaning out drawer but still no luck.


If you can remove the dispenser from the machine try soaking it in HOT water. The fabric softeners can cause a wax like build up that can clog the dispenser. If the dispenser will not come out of the machine then pour Hot water into it, cycle the machine and repeat. It took a long time to clog and will take a while to remove the clog(several cycles). This will work but will take time. Mix water with your softener to keep it from cloging again, it will thin the softener and stop the build up. If you add 50/50 water/conditioner shake well and use twice the normal amount so you are getting the full amount of softener/conditioner into the washer. This will help i had a similar problem with my front loading washer.

Bosch Washing Machine Softener Tray not emptying


You need to replace the cold water inlet valve. If the machine is older than one year it may be clogged on the side that moderates the cold water to the bleach and softener compartment. Replacing the valve fixed the problem. During the cycle when the softener dispenser fills it should fill quickly and no or little water should be seen in the soap dispenser area. If a lot of water goes into the soap dispense and little into the softener area the valve is clogged.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
