Question about Frigidaire GLTF1670A Front Load Washer
My washer is about 5 years old...about 1 year ago the softener would dispense only partially, but fairly consistently. I have been diligent about cleaning the dispensers, but now the softener will not dispense at all, just collects more water after each wash. One of the reasons that I wanted this washer is for the fabric softener dispenser, otherwise I could live without it...I'm ready to call for repair but thought I'd try here first...any tips on what I can try before calling service? Thanks...
Water remaining in the dispenser is normal doesn't mean its not dispensing consult your owners manuel

My wife reported the same problem and I took the top off the washer (2 screws at rear of washer and top slides forward) . Under the top on the left front side behind is the dispenser. On the top is a click adjuster similar to a clock hand pointer and in the center is a tick mark and off to the left side is (-) marks for reduced dispensing and to the right (+) marks for increasing dispensing. I moved the pointer all the way to the plus side and after a few loads the dispenser works fine. I assume over time the different fluids (fabric softener, detergent, etc) tend to gum up the valve mechanism. If this doesn't work I would try pouring some very hot water in it to try and loosen things up. After you try all the free thing, I guess the last option is a new dispenser.
