SOURCE: Washing m/c does not take softener during washing cycle.

Hi. Assuming the washer has completed the rinse sequence, there is a possibility the dispenser part of the valve could be faulty. I assume that you have put the conditioner in the right compartment of the dispenser.. If all else seems to be o/k, I recmmomend thay you once again thouroughly strip and clean the dispenser..
The other possibility is that the hole where the water comes in at the top of the dispenser is blocked.
You need a stiff piece of wire with a hook on the end and poke each hole that you can see in the top of the dispenser compartment
This should solve the problem
Please leave feeed back.
Thanks

SOURCE: water staying in the conditioner tray

You dont say which machine you have, but a lot of conditioner trays work by siphon action.

If at one end of the conditioner tray there is what looks like a closed off tube sticking up, this is the siphon. To remove it, it should just pull off. Check the tube is clean inside and out with no residues left from the conditioner. Also check the tube sticking up from the base of the conditioner tray - this should also be nice and clean, and should be clear of any obstructions. May be worth poking something like a cocktail stick down it just to make sure it's clear. Then push the closed off tube back on. The siphon action can be checked by pouring water into the conditroner tray - as the tray gets close to full the siphon action should kick in and then empy the tray.

Hope this is of some help.

Machine not taking powder


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

From your comment the water feed into the wash powder section of the dispenser tray is not working properly. Follow these instructions for first removing the dispenser and thoroughly cleaning and then clean all of the jets where the water is supposed to enter. Afterwards replace the dispenser;-0)
-------------------------------------
Try the following- in the second and third cases whilst looking from underneath!
  • 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).You may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath. Again you may have to push the bottom of the dispenser upwards.
Pull out the dispenser drawer far enough to be able to just see the trays, select each part of the cycle in turn (briefly to save time) and check that water is entering the trays. 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!

Where does the fabric softener and washing powder go in the LG WF-F5207PC 5.5KG top loading washing machine?


Put powdered detergent in the box at the back of the opening of the washer (opposite the control panel when the lid is open). If you use a liquid detergent, dilute it 1:1 with water and pour into the bleach dispenser at the front left of the washer. The fabric softener dispenser is near the bleach dispenser but a little closer to the tub and towards the middle of the left side of the unit. As with a liquid detergent, dilute 1:1 (30ml:30ml) with water before pouring into the dispenser.

If the fabric softener dispenser isn't working, add the fabric softener in the final rinse.

The manual for the washing machine is available here: http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/LG/WF-F5207PC-_E . You will need to review the unit or enter a security code.

I hope this helps.

The bleach dispenser is filling with water during the wash cycle and it will eventually spill over into the floor


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 21:02 Sun evening.

Although I don't know your particular machine I answered a similar problem a few days ago so will give you the same advice/guidance! I am presuming that the bleach, powder and conditioner trays are adjacent to one another.

It could simply be that the dispenser is blocked- possibly by a mix of powder and bleach and/or conditioner. I would immediately suggest you remove the whole dispenser by pulling it nearly out then either 1) pressing down on the lip at the top middle rear or 2) releasing the catch underneath the tray or 3) lifting the tray upwards to clear the catch- whichever suits your particular machine.
I do know that the conditioner/softener part is likely to have a tube or something similar down which the conditioner can flush/siphon when water is fed into it. The reason that it is not simply an open drawer, like the powder chute, is that it would 'run out' as soon as it is poured in of course. If this tube is blocked it can cause you sort of problem.

Hope this assists,

Water pouring from soap dispencer digital screen on mashine says H20 have drained water from pump hose at the bottom of the machine at the front


Hi from Englishman in SW France @ 18:55 Sun evening.

Although I do not know your particular machine water from soap dispenser is mostly caused by blocked tray(s).
Remove dispenser either by pulling almost out and 1) pushing down on the plastic flap at the middle back or 2) by pressing spring underneath or 3) by pulling out and lifting upwards- whichever your machine needs.
Clean really thoroughly, especially the conditioner tray and pipe contained in it- often well blocked by mixture of powder and conditioner (ours often is- I blame my wife....but don't tell her!)

The next thing- 'have drained water from pump hose at the bottom of the machine at the front'
makes me think that either 1) the drain motor lint tray/filter is blocked- which you should be able to remove and clean (if you haven't already done so by your draining action) or 2) the drain motor is malfunctioning. Normally it's the former.

Hopefully both these actions should cure both the problems.
Good luck,

My whirlpool dishwasher soap dispenser is apparently not opening during cleaning. I find dirty dishes and clumps of soap in the hopper. Whirlpool quiet partner II


I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?

Dishwasher problem


Symptoms:
Dispenser lid is open. Caked powder at (what would be during normal operation) bottom edge of soap dispenser or caked powder fallen onto dishes or dishwasher bottom. There may be loose powder in rest of dispenser or spilled down inside door or onto dishes underneath dispenser.

Solution:

Keep the area around the soap dispenser lid clear when loading the top tray.

Explanation:
The soap dispenser needs to swing open during the wash cycle. In many dishwashers the top tray has an indentation as wide as the lid of the dispenser. This allows the top tray to be as large deep as possible while still allowing space for the dispenser lid to open. People often pack their dishwasher with things overhanging this gap.

During the wash cycle the catch will release but the overhanging cutlery or crockery prevents the lid from opening all but a few degrees. Some water will splash in but not enough to wash out the soap powder. The soap powder at the bottom of the dispenser will then cake.

When the front door is opened the spring loaded lid, which is partly open, will of course swing fully open and you'll be convinced that the lid opened normally during operation. If this is the problem then if you're very careful and open the door very slowly you can actually hear the lid flip open. Also, depending on when the lid opens, how far it opened during operation and how fast you open the door you may find soap powder spilled down to cover the dishes at the front or down the inside of the door. This happens when you first open the door and obviously there couldn't be loose powder there if the powder had emerged while there was water washing around. Seeing the lid open as you open the door is a lot harder but can be done on some machines.

The water going in to the dispenser is blocked by sludge.
Remove the dipenser tray.
Look up inside the tray hole, at the 'roof' of the tray hole, and there are four holes (square on my machine) where the water flows in - in the middle of the 'roof'. These will be blocked with sludge. Try to poke them clear with a nylon tie or plastic coated wire - should go in a few inches.
It worked for me.

If you are you using a liquid soap or packets that will be the main problem.If your unit fills with water circulates the water and drains the water,and also heaters are working then you probally need to change to cascade powder soap.The film on the dishes is soap.The unit has so much build up in it that when it gets to the rinse cycle it is rinsing dishes with soapy water.You need to get 2 medium bowls fill both 2/3 up with white vinager,place one in upper rack and one in lower rack and run unit on longest cycle letting the vinager splash out during wash.do this with no soap and no dishes.Having soft water will allow you to use less soap.

Before taking anything to bits, check you aren't just loading the machine in such a way that something (for us, it's usually a frying pan) is stopping the soap dispenser from springing open all the way. A.
