Question about LG Washing Machines
First compartment on right side of drawer is prewash, next to it on the left is wash, second compartment on right is softener. Bubbles because you are using far too much detergent. Only use 2 tablespoons max for normal fairly large wash load, even less for smaller loads. Front loaders use little water, so need much less detergent. Also, highly suggest you not use softener, leaves residue in washer that soon turns to mildew and bad odors. Use white vinegar in its place. Helps remove detergent residue from clothes, keeps tub smelling good, and is very inexpensive. Liquid detergent is also an issue--it too leaves residue behind. Powdered detergent works much better and also is cheaper(counterintuitive you would think liquid dissolves better, but it doesn't).

I have this problem as well.. All washing machines manufactured nowadays are energy effficient, which means that they don't use as much water as the older models. This can result in a build-up of bacteria in the top part of the washing machine, which is clogging up the bit where the water comes through to flush the fabric conditioner into the drum. What I have to do every so often, is to take the top off the washing machine and clean out the layer of black slime that has built up, blocking the holes where the water goes into the washing machine. Another contributory factor is that the usual program used is a 40 degree wash, which is not hot enough to completely flush the machine through. Manufacturers recommend running a 90 degree wash once a month with just washing powder in iit, no clothes. Hope this is some help

You can get all of Whirlpools user guides here:
http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001/ifu/home Generally the one one the left - is for pre-wash (if clothes really soiled), the middle one is for powder (if you use it) and the last one is for softener or bleach.
I just use liquitabs - which go directly into the drum, and fabric softender.

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.

The fabric softener section in the drawer on my washing must be blocked as the fabric softener is staying in the drawer. Does anyone know any way to unblock it

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
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. 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!
