Washer Softnener dispenser

The dispenser does not work efficiently. To me it looks like the dispenser is dirty and that is why it is not emptying itself everytime.
My question is.
How and with what would you clean this? Does it have to be taken appart and cleaned?

Thanks before hand for taking your time to look into this.

    I have the same problem. My fabric softener stays in the dispenser. I have no idea how to take the dispenser apart to clean it. Has anyone figured it out yet? IF so please let me know how to do this. All the compartments on mine need cleaned.

    We have the Frigidaire Front Loading Washer also and have the same problem of the dispenser not draining. We clean the dispenser holder and casing often buy have found out that mold is clogging the holes that the water filters through. This is not an area that can be cleaned easily. Does anyone know how to open the washer casing to get to the inside so we can clean out the mold?

Remove despenser drawer, by pressing down plastic tab and pulling drawer towards you, use hot water and old toothbrush to clean all compartments, the softer compartment can come apart to clean, use knife or flat screwdriver to take apart .good luck eire.

Washing machine smells like mould


The odor may come from several sources. Mildew may be around the door's gasket. That might be cleaned with a rag and a half bleach/half water concoction. The soap dispenser tray may have had stagnant water present. Other hose areas may be growing mildew.

Here are some things you can try:

1) Run dishwasher powder detergent once a month through the washer. Or...
2) Run 3 quarters cup of bleach through an empty hot wash cycle once a month.
3) Yes, baking soda, ye olde oder absorber, can also be tried.
3) Clean the trap (where coins, etc. may be captured). Clean the filter.

Some High Efficiency machines have "high efficiency, HE detergents recommended for them. Does the drum have a soapy coating? If so, it will likely require at least an empty hot water cycle to get rid of the excess soap which may be responsible for the smell.

Naturally, if you are using bleach to clean the the washer door, you want to clean the bleach off too before you ruin some clothes by contact.

Hope this helps.

Why does My Samsung VRT front loader leave the soap dispenser full of water at the end of the wash cycle. I have to empty it in order to add detergent for the next wash cycle.


there are 2 components to the soap dispenser, 1 using liquid soap has a little tub that you dispense soap into and 2nd you remove the tub when using powder soap. I assume that you are talking about the little tub is filled with water. How this works is by adding water to the tub the level rises and siphoning empties the little tub. If any water remains it is due to water being added after the little tub has already emptied. That is not a big issue and will happen. Just empty the water or add some water to start the syphon process.

Lafw7000lw reviews


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the fabric softener cup in your Frigidaire washer, model# LAFW7000LW, never drains and is filled with dirty water. This is a result of the siphoning action and is part of the normal operation of your washer. You may remove the water by removing the dispenser drawer and draining the water into the empty drum or sink. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your washer status has changed. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The softener dispenser will not empty


If you look where you put the softener in you will probably see a tube sticking up, on the tube is a cover that sits on top and if this is loose or the tube is blocked the softener compartment will not empty.

Front of washer shows something inside the plastic on outside


It may just be spilled soap/softener the escapes from the tray when you load the dispenser. Happens here regularly. We just wipe it down from time to time.

Soap in LG


Hello, to answer your question, it depends. Are you using liquid detergent or powder? How dirty are your clothes? How bulky are your clothes?
For average size clothes and normal dirt I use about a cup of powder. If the clothes are dirty and/or bulky I just hit the "water plus" button. These machines are so efficient you don't want too much soap, just add water.
If your using liquid make sure it's approved for front load washers and use it sparingly. The most I have put in is about half up on the dispensing cup in the washer. Remember to remove this if your using powder. Any more questions just ask. Good luck.

Whirlpool Duet dispenser problem


this may be due to a faulty solenoid, if the cold water is flowing into the machine under normal use at the start, then check the solenoids as the conditioner has its own, the solenoids are just behind the body where the water pipes fit to the machine, they have 2 wires on each one, and are tested for circuit when machine is unplugged. stat there, hope i have helped
