Water in softener compartment Indesit w101 (not above)

Hi, the compartment of my Indesit washing machine where the softener goes keeps filling up with water and does not empty. I tried to pull the drawer out but cannot pull it right out. I tried to remove the top bit of the softerner compartment but I'm scared I break it as it doesn't seem to lift off completely. Do I have to unscrew anything? I see two screws above. Help! Thank you.

Most soap drawers have a plastic latch which needs to be pressed to release it.

You will find that there is a ball of soap congealed in the back of the dispenser drawer

My machine will not take the conditioner into the wash


in this case, do the following test. Since the machine starts to fill water a little pull out dispenser drawer and make sure water intake to softener compartment. There is possible 2 failures. First, clogged the holes for intake water above softener compartment and water doesn't intake to softener compartment. Second, faulty water dispenser so water intake to the pre-wash or wash compartment.

Softener wont add


Please ensure the machine is turned off at the power socket before you do anything.
Have you tried removing the draw? If you pull the draw out on most washers and slightly tilt the draw up and then try and pull further out the draw will come out. (DO NOT USE BRUT FORCE) if it doesn't come out easily then it probably isn't designed to.
If you get the draw out give it a really good wash in hot soapy water, the compartment where the softener goes normally as a piece of plastic that lifts up so you can clean the compartment throughly. Whilst the draw is out also give the inside of the draw compartment a clean out. (PLEASE ENSURE THE POWER IS OFF) Just for safety.
Once you have cleaned the draw replace it and try a full wash and see if that cleared the problem.1_15_2013_10_08_16_pm.jpg

Frigidaire washing machine fabric softner will not dispense out


Hello - There are several things that could cause the fabric softener to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is fabric softener? If it is fabric softener, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the fabric softener dispenser with water. The fabric softener dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.

When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the fabric softener solenoid is energized and water flows into the fabric softener dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and softener and water flow into the tub.

If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is pure softener you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the softener solenoid and a volt meter is required.

If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. **** will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. The instructions for cleaning the dispenser should be located on page 43 of the use and care guide that came with the washer.

If you don't have the use and care guide these instructions will help. Open the dispenser until it stops. In the left rear corner of the dispenser, there is a release that is labeled push. Press down on the push area and you can slide the dispenser drawer out.

Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.

To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the fabric softener compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out.

Hope this information proves to be helpful however if it is ineffective please contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I have to ask if you are putting the powder and softener into the correct compartments?
A quick and easy way to find out which tray is which is to pull the detergent drawer out just so that you can see into it. Start a pre-wash and see where the water runs in, then advance to the main wash and observe. Finally start a rinse cycle and where the water goes in is where the conditioner/softener goes.

In a few cases I have come across, the pre-wash tray shares with the conditioner/softener part but the pre-wash powder goes in the front and the softener in the back.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

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.

Indesit washing machine W103 softener drawer


The softener could be retained in the drawer due to a defective release or controller fault but washing machines are designed to flush the drawer with water to ensure no residue is left to congeal. It may take a service call to find out what the real problem is.

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
