Have you damaged the control that guides the water into the softener?
There is often an adjustment under the machine cover (if it's the same as a British model.
But if it was ok before you cleaned it, then you have broken it.

Is not taken the softner and the bleach


Clean the dispenser with boiling water and see if it is just a sticking problem, these get gummed up after a while.

I have a samsung washer p1253, the machine goes thru all its cycles apart from taking the softner, ive taken the draw out on washed it put it back together and it still wont take softner in, any advice...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I hope you don't mind me saying so but often the softener dispensing siphon tube gets missed when cleaning the dispenser 'cos it's difficult to see!
----------->
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 isn't the problem it could be that the water dispensing is not working correctly. It is easy to check by selecting (final?) rinse, pulling the drawer slightly out and seeing and hearing whether water is being fed into the softener tray. If is isn't then it is a call-out ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Fabric softner dispenser


take the soap dispenser drawer out and clean the drawer and the underneath the drawer, then clean the inside of the machine where the drawer fits into to. It could be caused by a build up of soap.

Kenmore front load washer will not dispense fabric softner


I've had this same problem and solved it by removing the detergent/bleach/softener dispenser drawer from the machine and seriously cleaning out all of the "gunk" from the drawer and from inside the drawer area on washer. Sometimes I have had to repeat the cleaning and then the fabric softener begins dispensing again. I have model # 417.43042200 but it may work on all the Kenmore front loading washers.

Fabric softner dispenser


Start by cleaning the dispener, pull the dispenser out the owner manual should show you how to do this.

Take the cover off and clean and rinse the dispenser out, reassemble.

If this doesnt help let me know, there may be other problems.
