Hmmm, this is a long shot in the dark.... But on alot of the newer machines you have to have the setting so that it will allow for fabric conditioner to flow through. Goodluck!!!

Bosch maxx 1000 - when finished cycle, leaves central fabric conditioner drawer full of water + trace of condtioner.

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

Why is fabric softener still in drawer after cycle?

there is usually a piece of plastic that hangs over the edge of the conditioner drawer that acts like a siphon when it is filled. this sometimes comes off or is lost when the drawer is taken out for cleaning. if you input your make and model on espares, they may have replacement part.
if you cant source one. forget conditioner and buy an all in one washing liquid

Fabric tray does not clear

Usually means soap dispensing drawer needs to be cleaned, as conditioner is dispensed by syphoning system, Take out soap detergent drawer, clean thoroughly in warm water, make sure drain hole in conditioner compartment is clear.

Brand new Cabrio washer model #WTW7300XW1 ---fabric softener dispenser fills with water after wash load.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is a note from the users manual that is important:
IMPORTANT: Fabric Softener option must be selected to ensure proper distribution at correct time in cycle. Do not overfill or dilute. Overfilling dispenser will cause fabric softener to immediately dispense into washer.

You have to select the fabric softener option with each cycle.
It is normal for small amounts of water to be remain in dispenser at the end of the cycle.

Feel free to call the Help line and make a phone inquiry Make aure to pass your model number to them.

When I put the fabric softener in to the dispenser and I select fabric softener option, at the end of the cycle the dispenser is full of wather. So for the next load, I have to empty the dispenser to put...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Although you do not say which make and model it is, this is a common problem with many machines.
I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener tray which needs a thorough clean! Follow my general notes paying particular attention to the bit in BOLD ;-0)
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catch underneath or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of these should enable you remove it
(I am having to guess some of the following!)
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
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.
I hope this is your problem and solution!
Good luck,
John C

Drawer not emptying

Suggest you pull the drawer right out and look for the hole in the bottom of the drawer where the conditioner is meant to drain out.

The top of this hole whould have a removable cover over it. What normally happens is that the inside of this cover gets choked with old conditioner.

Take the cover off and give the whole thing a really thorough clean with hot water and an old toothbrush.

Washing power drawer, the fabric softner section

Pull the drawer out as far as it will come and then grasping it firmly, give it a good tug towards you, this will free the drawer to enable you to thoroughly clean every piece of it, particularly the conditioner parts of it.
Get a piece of wire with a bend on the end, and poke it in to all the holes in the top of the dispenser compartment, this will clera any blockages there.
Plz rate my solution, and feel free to leave any comment.

Fabric conditioner drawer

Try cleaning inside the the machine where the soap dispenser drawer fits into. Sometimes this builds up with lots of soap and fabric conditioner residue and stops the conditioner from going through.
Take the drawer back out and look inside where it goes to see if there is a build up of soap etc...
hope this helps
