Hello DDennis, All front load washers that have the pull out drawer style of detergent, fabric softener, bleach dispensers will invariably leave some water in them, as water flows into each comparment to get the various additives into the wash tub.

However, from my personal and professional experience, I've found that most homeowners washers are not properly leveled, and tend to "lean" forward slightly, which doens't let the water fully drain out of the dispensers.

Using a 3 or 4 foot long level, check the washer from the back to the front to see how level it is. Do this on both sides and adjust the front adjustable leveling feet (and rear ones if needed) so that the washer is at a minimum, level from front to back and side to side. It is actually better to have the washer just slightly higher in the front than the back, but only by maybe a quarter bubble on the level.

By doing this, and leaving the door open slightly after washing, I've been able to avoid the trouble of nasty odors and mold growing in our washer at home and for customers too.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Water collects in the fabric softner dispenser during in the washing and doesn't drain. We have to pour it out vbefroe washing the next load.


Take the dispenser out the washer and clean it very good.
Pull the caps off and make sure no fabric softner is hanging around the hole. The unit uses a siphon effect to drain the compartments.
It's normal to have some water left over tho. Just not full of water.

Help My front loading washer is not dispending


have you pulled the drawer from the machine and cleaned it thoroughly. break it down into individual pieces and clean the hell out of it. Fabric softener can build up over time and clog every crack and crevice. check also the hole the drawer goes into, water flows into the drawer mixes with f.s., bleach, etc. dilutes it and sends out the bottom.

My HE washer doesn't dispense the fabric softner


Try removing the dispenser cup - and washing the inner cup thoroughly- run a sanitary cycle with whites and chlorine bleach mold and mildew likes to haunt these front loaders - be sure to run a bleach hot water cycle once weekly

"fabric softner staining the clothes"


make sure you delute it with water. yes fabric softner will start to stain your clothes if you use too much of it. I would recomend stop useing it for a while. so you can clean the washer out. There is a product called Washer magic or Affresh that cleans out residues built up in your washer. or you can just run several loads of HOT water and bleach to clean it out. The hot water will melt the left over fabric softner in your washer. Fabric softner is kind of like hardend bacon fat thats what it looks like in your washer after time and if you do not clean your washer it builds up and builds up.
Also i do recomend alternating liquid detergent and powdered detergent. The reason why is powder leaves a residue that liquid takes away and vise versa. try this and let me know how it goes

Tray that holds fabric softner does not drain


I have had three sepaerate service calls and one independant analysis about this problem. For the whirlpool duet washer - this is a design flaw - nothing else - please notice that when you take the detergent tray completely out (and turn it upside down) a piece of plastic falls out but even if you put it back correctly the water only flows out into the washer - either washing everything away or leaving it behind - I have been told there is no fix.
