Fabric softeners can coagulate and clog hose. Try pouring hot water into compartment, with washer empty, to clear hose.

We use well water . after washing tower 2 or 3 days of use tower it starts to smell musty .how do we prevent this?


If the machine has a "clean washer" setting, run that with 2/3 cup bleach only (no soap). If it doesn't have a specific setting to clean the machine, run a small load with hot water and use 2/3 cup bleach, no soap.

If you're asking how to avoid the problem altogether, you'd most likely need to install a water softener, or water filter.

Water leaks out of the soap dispenser of my kenmore elite front loader and all the soap or bleach us not out


The 1st thing to try is to take out the dispenser ,there is a little piece that you will push down and then pull the entire assembly out, rinse it out with hot water ,most likely there is a build up in the dispenser,there after use only powder detergent, and no more then 1 tbs ,and any other stuff IE bleach ,fabric softener,use 1/2 the amount and dilute it with water.

I just bought this washer and dont know where to put the soap and softener


If the model number is correct, the detergent and fabric softener go in the dispenser drawer on the left hand side of the operator console. Detergent goes in the LEFT FRONT compartment and softener goes in the RIGHT FRONT compartment. A full explanation of the dispener compartments is included on about page 13 of the owner's manual. If you do not have an owner's manual, you can obtain a FREE copy at managemylife.com. Just type in your MODEL NUMBER under their "Manuals" link and your manual is available in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Fabric softener dispenser will not dispense ...still full after a load. Soap appears to be working fine. Not sure about bleach.


softener is likely hardened on the solenoid. the dispenser must be removed and cleaned.

Softener tray filling with water


open the dispenser all the way,place your finger towards the back left of dispenser.you should see a tab,depress the tab and pull entire dispenser cup out.the bleach and fab soft part of the disp has a removable tray.clean all pieces out including the long shafts on the insert.you will more than likely find a build up of softener,this breaks the siphon and does not allow the water to drain out.good luck

Kenmore Elite fabric softener won't drain


Is the dispenser full? It could be that it is a bit clogged. I would try just pouring a little very hot water in for several loads and using dryer softener sheets during this time. Let's see if we can unclog it .

HE washing machine


As you look at your dispenser. The Left compartment is for Detergent. The Right Front compartment is for the Fabric Softener Liquid. The Right Rear compartment is for Chlorine Bleach.

Wet clothes, water in soap dispenser


Next check your drain, where the hose goes in behind, snake this out. And dont shove the hose in too deep, into the standpipe that is.

If this helps, rate me please.
