The dispenser isn't supposed to come apart, it just slides over the top of the agitator. It's an inexpensive part to replace. Sears parts has it, as well as other online parts sources. You may also be able to find it locally if you check your Yellow Pages for appliance parts stores.

Front loader. Why doesn't fabric softener dispenser empty?


It can be two things. First, what is left in the dispenser? If its the fabric softener, then the water valve may be faulty. The water valve will have multiple feeds and the fabric softener might be bad. If its a combination of water and softener, then the dispenser might be clogged. You can remove the slide out tray and clean it. Look for build up of fabric softener that might be there. Good Luck?

Frigidaire washing machine fabric softner will not dispense out


Hello - There are several things that could cause the fabric softener to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is fabric softener? If it is fabric softener, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the fabric softener dispenser with water. The fabric softener dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.

When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the fabric softener solenoid is energized and water flows into the fabric softener dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and softener and water flow into the tub.

If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is pure softener you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the softener solenoid and a volt meter is required.

If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. **** will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. The instructions for cleaning the dispenser should be located on page 43 of the use and care guide that came with the washer.

If you don't have the use and care guide these instructions will help. Open the dispenser until it stops. In the left rear corner of the dispenser, there is a release that is labeled push. Press down on the push area and you can slide the dispenser drawer out.

Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.

To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the fabric softener compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out.

Hope this information proves to be helpful however if it is ineffective please contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Does the fabric softener dispensar come apart?


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=136&osCsid=7914776481dcf14414831964a8792e18

Depending on the model, your fabric softener may have a ring around its bottom. Push down or pull up the ring and the dispenser should pull straight up. It doesn't twist off.

Also see the following Sears site. It may have an on-line manual for your machine.

The fabric softener is clogged with dried up fabric softener on my Whirpool Washer. How can I get it cleaned out?


You really cant take them apart without breaking the dispensers. Fabric softner is basically wax and fragrance. Add very hot water to the dispenser to melt the fabric softner. In the future, water down the fabric softner.

Fabric softener dispenser not working


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you should have the softener dispenser on the center post of the agitator. If this is the case, you need to remove it by popping it off the center post and take it apart. Soak it in some hot water to dissolve the softener residue and reassemble. Most dispenser related problems are attributed to softener that hardens and clogs up the dispenser. Liquid softener is essentially a wax and will do this over time. You will need to clean it from time to time.
