There can be 2 reasons. The centre section dispenses the fabric softener in the last rinse. It works on a syphon effect.
If it is not assembled correctly the water flows over the side to avoid a flood and leaves the middle section full at the end. Make sure the inner pipe is inside the outer pipe and that both are completely clear of softener residue.
The second reason is the water inlet can become blocked therefore not creating sufficient flow to create a syphon effect. It gets blocked with black gunk and needs to be cleaned with pipe cleaners or a long cable tie. There are 4 rectangular holes above the centre section, near the front. They can be seen easily if you take the drawer out.

Hope this helps

Check that the hose that connects the drawer to the tub is clean, fabric conditioner normally gunks up especially on colder wash cycles.

You can try getting it serviced. Vacuuming the system and charging it up with new refrigerant, as well as replacing the reciever drier, will help tweak your AC system. This is no guarantee though. It might be able to bring the temp in your house down several more degrees. Also try cleaning the condenser outside. You can spray it with water to clean off dirt which block air from passing through. This hepls a bit and you can do it yourself.

Perhaps it needs to be thoroughly cleaned out first - sometimes the gloopy mess collects and blocks the outlet hole.

Conditioner is not used in the wash cycle


I had the same problem with my Bosch Classixx 1200 Express.
It was fixed today & I now know what to do in the future if it happens. The water gets into the soap/ conditioner dispenser drawer via 2 pipes. One points to the main detergent compartment and the other to the pre-wash and conditioner compartments. The pipes become clogged with a type of mould. This meant that in my machine the water was bypassing the conditioner. I had already removed the drawer and cleaned it up and cleaned the jets above with an old tootbrush but it hadn't solved the problem. The repair guy used a cable tie (one of those that is quite firm & will lock) and pushed it up inside the bigger jets. This loosened the black gunge. Then ran water thru from start of the basic cycles and all is now OK
