Question about Maytag Neptune MAH6700A Front Load Washer
The fabric softener dispenser does not dispense. The soap and bleach do dispense.
The fabric softener dispenser is notorious for clogging. Liquid fabric softener is essentially a liquid form of wax. After a period of time it begins to gunk up the inside of the fabric softener dispenser. If you remove the dispenser drawer and look into the cavity, there should be a series of holes in the upper part of the compartment where water sprays into all the dispenser trays. These holes get gunked up and clogged and water will not dispense properly. As a result, the washer goes through a complete cycle, but the dispenser stays full. If this is the case, you can take some cotton swabs and/or toothpicks and clean these holes real good. It may be a bit meticulous, but it should take care of the problem. Post back and let me know if this helps.

The fabric softener dispenser (and bleach dispenser, same water line) on the Maytag MAH 6700 model works by time (controlled by the circuit board) and water flow from the cold water inlet valve. Check the screen on your cold water inlet. If clean, the water inlet valve may need to be replaced. They (two solenoid units together)are not repairable. If you are mechanically inclined take a look at the cold water inlet valve that has the rubber tubing running to the "bleach" dispensor nipple. It will have a water flow restrictor in it at the inlet valve. On my unit a piece of "stray" plastic was partially clogging the flow restrictor. I carefully drilled the valve out enough to remove the stray plastic. Now both the bleach dispenser and fabric softener dispenser work properly and at the correct times during the wash.
Good luck with your repair!
