Question about Washing Machines
When I set the machine to wash L - lightly soiled - it goes for about 5 seconds then stops. Also, when I set it at K and depress the 'Quick wash' button, it doesnt take the deterget or softener from the drawer? Any help gratefully accepted!
Sounds like a firmware error
contact the maker and look for any recall notice... on the makers site
if you find a recall get a ticket from them and they will replace your machine

SOURCE: Fabric softener stays in drawre
We just had a tech come out to fix this problem for us. Essentially, the problem is that the fabric softener builds up and gets clogged. He cleaned out a solid hunk of frabric softener gunk, and suggested that we dilute our fabric softener with water to keep this buildup from happening again.

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.

There is a FLAP which acts to prevent backflow into the fabric softener compartment. It is usually synthetic rubber, and covers the end of a tube (from the fabric softener compartment, and is usually cut at an angle. The flap opens to permit the softener to flow out, but apparently is not 'flapping back' to prevent backflow. Best thing is to check that flap, and possibly it is prevented from 'flapping back' by lint or some other bit of fabric/thread/tissue left in a pocket, &tc.
