When should fabric softener be put in drawer


You can put it in at the same time as you put the wash powder in before you start the wash but make sure you put it in the right compartment of the drawer.

How do you get the powder drawer out to clean it? LG intello washer wd 12126rd


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

These are my complete and pre-typed guidance notes for problems, particularly with conditioner being left in its tray ;-0)
-------------------------------------
I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener tray which needs a thorough clean, paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD OR the water feed into the softener tray is not working properly. If the latter, follow these instructions and then clean the jets where the softener water is supposed to enter before calling for service;-0)
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube
but on others the cover is part of the tray's plastic top. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
If this does not work, pull out the dispenser drawer far enough to be able to just see the softener tray, select the (final?) rinse and check that water is entering the tray. If it isn't there is a fault with the water distribution and an engineer call is required ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.

Thanks and good luck!

Hoover six 1300 washing machine what do I put in the tray?. and in what order?.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Methinks you could do with a manual- for now and probably later ;-

Manual
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

What goes where
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 (if the washjer has one) and see where the water runs in- that's where the pre-wash powder goes. Advance to the main wash and observe- that is for the main wash powder. 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.
You can put them all in at the same time before you start the wash cycle.

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

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?

Hi Zoe from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but only an answer to Not taking the softener - this is a common problem with many machines.

  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of those should enable you remove it

Its actually the 72630 lavamat. Fabric softener remains in the drawer. Have tried cleaning the drawer but nothing is happening. Any ideas? Many thanks


Hi,

Sorry- my wife is calling but here is a quick probable fix- the fabric softener drawer normally has some sort of cover, which needs to be removed, and underneath is a pipe/tube down which the softener and water mix siphons. This tube gets blocked by gunge- a mix of powder and softener. Ours does!
It has to be completely clear.

Must go.
Good luck.

The fabric softener drawer on my hotpoint hd420 is not draining. At the end of a wash the fabric softener drawer remains for of water. Can you advise?


Hi,

It is not that unusual to find some plain water remaining- has the softener gone OK?

If not here is just a quick POSSIBLE (1st) solution if you have not tried it already-

Completely slide out the drawer - normally made possible by pressing down the plastic flap at the backend of the softener part of the drawer - as it is normally in the middle.

You may find 'gunge' made up of washing powder (if you use powder of course!) and softener combined in the tube that the softener should syphon into. Wash out with plenty of water!
I do this to ours fairly frequently.

Hope this helps.

When doing wash softener is not going out of drawer properly & leaves water in draw help!!


The softener dispenser has a blockage, it's very common these days and some brands of softener are worse than others for causing it.

Pull the drawer completely out of the machine. Flip up the cover over the rear half of the softener dispensing compartment. Thoroughly clean out all of the (usually black or pink) goo which is causing the blockage.

The softener dispenses on a siphon principle, so there's a blind-ended upper tube moulded into the cover which fits over a lower tube. The lower tube is easier to clean out as you can pass pipe cleaner brushes or similar right through it, the upper tube will be trickier as you need to winkle out every bit of goo from just one end. The goo is a biofilm, so if there are any traces left then it will rapidly re-grow.

Note that if you look carefully at the way the front panel of the drawer attaches to the main body of the drawer you can carefully unclip it. Once the front is removed you can safely put the rest of the drawer in a dishwasher to help kill off the remaining biofilm traces. I've done this thousands of times with Bosch/Siemens and AEG machines without any problems.

Clean the drawer regularly to prevent re-occurrence. You may also wish to consider switching to a wash powder brand with built-in conditioner, such as Bold: if you don't need to put conditioner into the dispenser, there's nothing for the biofilms to feed upon. They will feed on powder residues though so although you'll reduce the likelihood of getting further blockages you'll still need to clean the drawer (and the aperture it fits into) regularly to ensure that it never occurs again.

Please ask any questions if my solution is unclear, but if I've answered your question satisfactorily then please take a moment to rate my answer.
