There is a FLAP which acts to prevent backflow into the fabric softener compartment. It is usually synthetic rubber, and covers the end of a tube (from the fabric softener compartment, and is usually cut at an angle. The flap opens to permit the softener to flow out, but apparently is not 'flapping back' to prevent backflow. Best thing is to check that flap, and possibly it is prevented from 'flapping back' by lint or some other bit of fabric/thread/tissue left in a pocket, &tc.

Fabric softener drains out, but pumps water back into dispenser after draining?


Hello friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

It is a normal operation to receive water inside the dispenser after draining. This is part of the siphoning action of the drawer. You would just remove the drawer and empty the water out, then reattach the dispenser drawer. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Kenmore frontloader fabric softener dispenser is clogged


There should be pins located somewhere on the dispenser or a grey thing located inside the dispenser, push it down and that will release the dispenser from the washer. Afterwards you can put in in the dishwasher, this should clean out any clogging residue.

The fabric softener drawer on my hotpoint hd420 is not draining. At the end of a wash the fabric softener drawer remains for of water. Can you advise?


Hi,

It is not that unusual to find some plain water remaining- has the softener gone OK?

If not here is just a quick POSSIBLE (1st) solution if you have not tried it already-

Completely slide out the drawer - normally made possible by pressing down the plastic flap at the backend of the softener part of the drawer - as it is normally in the middle.

You may find 'gunge' made up of washing powder (if you use powder of course!) and softener combined in the tube that the softener should syphon into. Wash out with plenty of water!
I do this to ours fairly frequently.

Hope this helps.

Why does water remain in the fabric softener tray after a load has finished?


Hello,
If you are getting good water flow through this section on the final rinse then it can only be a blockage in the tray itself.If you take out the drawer by depressing the button in the centre of the drawer.then wash all the old detergent under the tap.Then remove the small insert in the fabric tray you will see normally 3 raised tubes,these need to be clear and also the part that sits over them,you should clean it thoroughly then refit and try again.

Hope this helps.

Remove drawer and thoroughly clean, you must have a blockage in it for the water to remain.

Is the dispenser full? It could be that it is a bit clogged. I would try just pouring a little very hot water in for several loads and using dryer softener sheets during this time. Let's see if we can unclog it .

Water remains in fabric softner compartment


Is the softener entering the machine; that is at the appropriate time? You can take a peep at this time, if possible. If it is water it is okay; this is just the remaining water. The softener is dissolved with water and flushed into the machine.
