Question about Electrolux Washing Machines
It used to work and now it's not working anymore. I didn't fill the softener exceeding the limit.
Good Morning Sandie,
I understand that you are having trouble with the softener dispenser not dispensing on your Electrolux washer. I suggest running a System-clean cycle on your washer, as well as taking out the dispenser drawer and taking the dispenser compartments out and cleaning them. It might be that the softener has built up inside the dispenser drawer. If that does not work, reset your appliance by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. If you are still noticing the softener not dispensing, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.

Tips for a great answer:
The Fabric dispenser needs to have the hot and cold water at equal pressure for the fabric softener dispenser to operate properly.
1. Turn on the hot water fill then cold water fill at the washer. If the Wash Sense or temperature sensing is on it needs to be off.

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.
