Open the door and pull it out. There may be a clip or button to press down at the very back of the drawer.

Clean it thoroughly under hot water. remove the softener compartment and thoroughly clean. also clean inside soap dispenser body.

My fabric conditioner is staying in the drawer. I have washed the compartment out and cant see what the problem is

You seem to have a clog down below. Try some boiling water poured down the conditioner drawer, this should clear your problem. Good Luck Friend.

Wd 616515 seems to wash water through the draw and take the conditioner away too soon any answers ?

The water goes into the compartments in the tray by a filter in the top. This gets blocked by water scrum and detergent build up. Remove the powder drawer and clean inside the cavity. Also, clean the drawer....especially the conditioner section, as the syphon can get clogged up and cause a premature syphon

Hi. the drawer into which the fabric conditioner is poured, is not being flushed, i.e conditioner remains in drawer. Any idea how I unblock the water inlet ? Thanks

usually the drawer has a plastic tube with cap in it.remove the small cap and clean/wash with water until the residues of the previous conditioner is cleared. then put back the small plastic cap. hopefully it will drain properly on your next use of conditioner

Fabric conditioner section in draw always full with water after cycle has finished

Detergent drawer is clogged with soap. to remove look for small plastic clip on the inside above the detergent drawer which needs to be released. Remove detergent drawer unit and wash thoroughly under running water, or bucket. Replace and problem should be solved until it gets clogged again.

Conditioner tray won't empty

i assume the detergent drawer is really clean especially the conditioner part.fault may be that the roof of the detergent box (the part the drawer goes into) is clogged. open drawer half-way at point conditioner should be taken and check if there is a spurt of water into the conditioner section. if not push a hairgrip or similiar into the holes in roof of box as you may have a blockage there.
