It will not dispense the fabric softener.

You'll need to clean the dispenser by removing it. Use white vinegar and spray then spray the dispenser & agitator with it too. Use hot water after a minute and vinegar will wash out the softener. Try using a soft brush to clean it. Try running a cycle with hot water and bleach (use no soap). Avoid using large amount of soap. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

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

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.
