Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
I started with the basics, cleaned the dispenser trays and then they fill tray leading from the valve to the tray. I have replaced the dispenser water valve, water fills the bleach tray just fine; however, it just barely trickles into the softener side tray for a couple of seconds and then nothing. While I had it apart I cleaned 'everything'. That suggests to me that the hose is not plugged or clogged - is there a separate relay switch for the softener valve to trip?
I suggest there may be hard water mineral deposits in the hose or orifice to the tray. Try soaking it with some Coke (yes I mean the soft drink) overnight and see if the flow improves. Either that or you can try some CLR but Coke should be enough to gently remove any deposits there are in the tray, hose or line.

SOURCE: fabric softener won't empty
as you have said you have cleaned out all of the soap drawer a good place to start is assume the problem could be the water supply solenoid, the water not getting through, remove power plug, the lid, and test the solenoid for open circuit, and replace if needed, if this has helped please rate me

Hi. your problem is actually a rather complicated one.
Timer and selector switches The timer switch is usually the largest dial on the main control panel. It can be either a mechanical device much like a simple clock, or completely electronic with just a digital readout.
The timer runs the washing machine in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the washing machine components at the correct time and for the correct length of time.
The Start switch is usually part of the timer knob. When you set the timer to the proper cycle, you either pull or push the timer knob to start the cycle.
The selector switches or knobs vary from machine to machine. Most washing machines have one or several switches or knobs on the control panel besides the Timer/Start switch. These let you adjust certain settings; for example, the water temperature, spin speed, timer cycle, and so on. Normally, the washing machine completes the cycle selected on the timer, regardless of how you set these switches and knobs.

Not sure if you've ever resolved this issue, but I'm dealing with it myself. I have come across this service manual that gives a very detailed illustration of the systems, how it works and how to test it.
Focus on pages 15 thru 25. Hope this helps you.
