PLease check the hose that goes from the INLET VALVE to the dispensing system cup on your washer. This hose probably has a hole or the plastic dispensor is cracked and therefore leaking.
The inlet valve is working and when the time comes the water goes to the dispensing cup, so the system is working it is just the hose, dispensing cup or both.

Whirlpool washer model wfw9150ww01 won't dispense bleach


My guess is that the valve that pushes water into the bleach compartment has stopped working. It should be accessable from the top. I have some maytags similar to your machine that i have to remove the front panel to remove a couple screws to lift the top like a car hood. Not sure about your machine though.

Kenmore elite he3t front load washer will not take detergent into the machine but will empty the bleach and softner


Hello,

This means the valve is bad. You can make this repair yourself. The top of the machine comes off three screws.

The valve is on the rear of the machine. I could look the part number up for you, let me know

Just purchased daewoo washer DWD-WD1353RC..it seems the fabric softner is not dispensing and the detergent is barely used. I understand this machine usesHE detergents but it is using very little detergent...


this washer has different detergent concentration levels settings. 1.By holding delay wash then power button at the same time, while unit is off. then a C1,C2,C3 are main detergent concentration settings C1 being regular HE detergent and C3 being very concentrated some detergents tell you X2, X3 S1,S2 are softener B1,B2 are bleach 2. Then use buttons Delay wash to scroll for main detergent Extra rinse for softener Bleach for bleach 3. power button to exit and confirm
hope this helps also in manual and to clean tanks, Manual says to call a 1800# or find the instructions on the web. I've had this washer for a week no problems yet

GE WSXH208AWW doesn't dispense detergent, softner or bleach. Dispenser is totally dry after wash cycle.Appears no water gets to tray.


I'm having almost the same problem - the bleach & softener both will NOT dispense, but (LUCKILY) the detergent does dispense on mine, for now.

In order to get the solutions (bleach, softener, detergent) to go into the washer, the water needs to pour through the dispenser somehow. Dry means NOT working (mothmanmeg).

I need help, too!! We tried taking the drawer out & cleaning, no luck.

Buzzing sound


does it ever give an error code? a common problem on whirlpool made machines is the dispenser arm getting caught when changing positions. This part is in rear of detergent dispenser housing and uses a motor and a arm to select detergent/ softner/ bleach/ and fill. you can remove top (screws on back) to watch this.

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.
