SOURCE: fabric softener dispensing before wash begins

I was having the same problem. Repair man replaced VALVE AW
He told me it is from the sedement in your water. If you have a water softner, it may not be the problem, unless it is not working properly. Sounds strange, but problem is fixed.

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.

SOURCE: WFLI2440 FRONT LOAD FABRIC SOFTENER NOT DISPENSING

Hello !
We also had the same problem a few months ago until i cleaned the little water holes that dispense the water with a steam cleaner (high pressure) it completely removed the blockage after i actually pushed the nozzle against the little square holes where the water come through. After that i ran the machine on a 90 degrees wash empty to get rid of all the gunk and ever since the problem does not seem to happen any more.

    SOURCE: 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.

    Water colects in lid sometime during the cycle.Drains onto washed clothes when lifting the lid to remove clothes. Water seems to be combined with fabric softener. Bleach holder also is filled with water....


    I had the exact same problem. The problem is that your fabric softener dispenser is clogged up with a lot of dried, sticky fabric softener. The flooding comes from the part of the cycle when water that is to be flushed through the fabric softener dispenser can't drain properly so it spills into the bleach dispenser and onto the top and into the lid gasket as well.

    To remove the dispenser for cleaning, you need to open the top of the washer. (First pull it away from the wall.) Carefully pry off the little emblem in the front center of the washer lid. Then remove the screw. Then slide the top forward to you about a 1/2 inch and prop it up carefully.

    You then need to remove both hoses that are attached to the bleach and fabric softener dispenser (part of the same unit). Then unsnap the combined unit from the washer top. Then clean all the gunk out by running it under scalding hot water in the laundry tub and swirling the gunk out. Don't attampt to remove the blue round fabric dispenser part from the unit.

    Put it all back together and you're good until you clog it up again with too much fabric softener; maybe several years again.

    Good luck.

    The detergent dispenser want despense the fabric softner


    Hello. This is a common problem due to the fact that fabric softener collects in the dispenser and gums it up. Begin with an empty washing machine. Add two cups of vinegar to the fabric softener dispenser and then run the machine on the maximum water and hottest water setting. Once the cycle is complete check it out. It will be as clean as a new machine. If this treatment didn't completely clean out the dispenser, repeat the cleaning a second time with two more cups of vinegar. regards, Joe
    ps - kindly rate my answer as helpful. Thanks.

    Fabric softener dispenser is filled with water


    I had this same problem. I found a repair manual online and found out how to get into Service Test Mode. There is a test (t12) for the dispenser motor/mechanise. Running this test basically just runs water through each of the dispenser compartments (prewash, wash, bleach, fabric softner). All ran fine - no error codes. I continued to run the test on the fabric softner dispenser repeatedly and after 5-10 cycles it started draining properly. I think a tube (or valve or opening) was just clogged with the built up softner. I also put some vinegar in the compartment a time or two just to clean out any residue. Be careful with the Service Test Mode - read directions carefully - the manual warns that if you don't get out of it corretly that it can lock up you washer.

    Automatic fabric softener dispensor not emptying


    The detergent dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distributed to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle)by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next test !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!
