SOURCE: Fabric softener doesn't dispense
Fabric softener dispensers are notorious for getting all gummed up and clogged. Remove the dispenser cup and soak in some hot water to dissolve all residue. While you have the dispenser removed check under the dispenser cap in the agitator for gummy residue as well. Clean with hot water. There should also be an agitator seal cap under the dispenser. Make sure the cap and rubber o-ring are seated properly. Last of all, if the dispenser has a cone shaped cup inside, make sure it is inserted cone-side UP. The cup is designed to allow fabric softener to roll down the sides of it, NOT hold it. I hope this helps.

it might be blocked where the pump drains out of the hose,or it might be the pump blocked. check that nothing is blocking the pump you can do this by turning the pump by hand,but PLEASE make sure you unplug the machine from the mains first.you will have to take off the back to get where the pump is,once you have found the pump try and turn it a few times,if it does not move at all, the pump needs replacing.help this help..all the best..

SOURCE: agitator removal
Yes it does, I believe the dispenser will twist an 1/8 turn and pop off. There is a cap with a handle below it that pulls out. The last part is a bolt. Try a 7/16 deep well socket with a nine inch extension, grasp the agitator and loosen it. Leave bolt intact and lift agitator from the bottom. Looking from the date if you have solved the issue this will stand as a general post for ag removal.

SOURCE: gunk in middle of agitator
the fabric softener spins out of the cup after the wash cycle when spinning the water out of clothes, then the washer fills back up for the rinse w/ your softener having been dispensed. is there a nut at the bottom of your agitator where you see the gunk? If so you can take the agitator out by removing the nut but be careful of the little parts that make the agitator agitate. Do not disturb these little parts if you don't know about them. Does the gunk smell like grease or a mechanics garage? If so chances are it is a lubricant and should not be removed replace the cap and your softener cup and continue enjoying your machine.
