SOURCE: Kenmore Front Loading machine, does not drain the fabric softener

We had the exact same situation with the fabric softener not draining and here is how we fixed it. Turn the water off first, then remove the water lines that bring water into your washer. (They are near the top.) There is a screen in the end of the line, do not remove it, but take an old toothbrush and brush the gunk out and clean it as best you can. Do both the hot & cold sides. The screens keep any debris out of the washer, so after a while it collects and slows down the water intake time (has your washer been slow to fill also?) Screw back the lines, making sure to put the hot and cold back as they were originally, then test that they do not leak. Put your washer back in place and viola - problem solved! I hope this works for you, and good luck!

SOURCE: Fabric Softener doesn't empty

My husband just fixed ours after not seeing a solution on any other site. He pulled out the dispensing unit and pulled off the blue plastic piece on the top of the fabric softener and bleaching section. He then ran warm/hot water (not boiling hot) through the holes where the fabric softener is suppose to flow through. This cleaned out excess fabric softener that had coagulated in the elbow and blocked the flow of softener to the unit.

SOURCE: Hard scratchy towels. Have used all wash cycles, and use fabric softener

have you tried just white vinegar as your rinse aid. Do a full cycle of your washing machine using white vinegar instead of detergent, to clean any residue from pipes, and then in the next wash try white vinegar as your rinse aid.

SOURCE: remove and replace fabric softener dispenser on kenmore model 20952992

I just did it. All you do is pull up on the blue part -- put the fingers of both hands under the rim and pull. It isn't screwed or bolted on. If there's a lot of gunk built up, it's all the harder to pull up. Be prepared for some yucky stuff. It would be nice if that whole section would come out, since you have to clean the area below with Q-tips.

How do I remove the top of whirlpool awoe 9140 front loader washing machine?


there are 2 or 3 screws behind the top cover,but this wont get you to where the odor exists,its in between the inner and outer drum,you need to also remove the front cover including the door then remove the inner drum pulley and belt and then split the outer tub to clean out old detergent and fabric softener if you use this as this is where the smell is coming from

Whirlpool duet washer fabric softener dispenser does not empty


Hi there
I wonder why, mine does though I never use a fabric softener, the water just runs through. It must be clogged somewhere, the only solution I have is the old one. The needle and the thread,try puting a needle through then pull the thread back and forth.
I hope it works

WANT TODO A QUICK SPIN ONLY WITH A AWOE 9140


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I think you could do with an user manual ;-0)

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,
John C

Its actually the 72630 lavamat. Fabric softener remains in the drawer. Have tried cleaning the drawer but nothing is happening. Any ideas? Many thanks


Hi,

Sorry- my wife is calling but here is a quick probable fix- the fabric softener drawer normally has some sort of cover, which needs to be removed, and underneath is a pipe/tube down which the softener and water mix siphons. This tube gets blocked by gunge- a mix of powder and softener. Ours does!
It has to be completely clear.

Must go.
Good luck.

Fabric softener won't dispense


Have you tried thinning the softener with water? It's what I used to do on my older washer, it wasn't the new Duet, but it seemed to help. Hope that helps. (PS I don't use softener anymore as I have developed a terrible skin allergy to these newer longer scented softeners! )
