Whirlpool duet washer

I have had my whirlpool duet for about three years and once in a while the water will only fill up on the fabric softner side and will not take out the soap out of the other side so I have been putting the soap on that side and then wait for the rinse cycle to start and then fill it with fabric softner what can I do to correct the problem

Re: whirlpool duet washer

There may be an ajustment above the soap drawer unit. Take the lid off to see. If there is an adjustment its a 'trial & error job' to set it right. TURN THE POWER OFF FIRST

You can try a few differnt things, staining is usually caused by not hot enough water to disolve or hard water issues. A Washer cleaning use one gallon white vingar fill up washer with hot HOT water let sit over night than run washer next day on HOT hot. Second try washing in warm to hot water dluting softner more breaks down better. Also dluting the softner more in the cup will help washing in cold causes alot of these issues, Make sure water heater turned up hot enough, make sure washer has hot water fill?

The fabric softner compartment of my whirlpool duet washer is completely full of water

Mine is doing the same. For over 2 months now I've been adding fabric softner to the detergent compartment but I broke down and called a repairman to come tomorrow... at a ridiculous repair rate. My washer is less than 3 years old and this will be the 3rd major problem that needed to be fixed. I've seen a lot of people post the same problem - some say all 3 compartments won't drain.

Tray that holds fabric softner does not drain

I have had three sepaerate service calls and one independant analysis about this problem. For the whirlpool duet washer - this is a design flaw - nothing else - please notice that when you take the detergent tray completely out (and turn it upside down) a piece of plastic falls out but even if you put it back correctly the water only flows out into the washer - either washing everything away or leaving it behind - I have been told there is no fix.

It obviously is backed up or splashed in from the wash. And if it is just water why worry about it.

Water in bleach/fabric softne compartment

Purchased the duet washer and dryer sept 2004..have had the same problem with water staying in the compartments. while under warranty had to place 2 service calls..the last tech order a new bleach compartment...that helped for a few months, but back to the same problem with having to pull entire container out and empty..i do remember the tech saying that whirlpool duet was first introduced in germany...then the united states...they have had the same problem...and that whirlpool is awhere of it, but nothing can be done about...except keep emptying compartment when it fills with water...our neighbor bought a duet washer last problems like we are having..whirlpool must of solved that issue with the newer versions.... paying $1000.00 for a washer and having to empty the compartment everytime doesn't make sense to me.
