Dispensing tray filing with water

If it is the tray for the softener that is staying full you need to remove the drawer and clean it. The pick up tube for the softener is either blocked or the piece that fits over it is not seating enough and this will stop the softener compartment from emptying fully.

Washer finishes but hasn't dispensed softener. I've removed the tray and washed it thoroughly. Cleaning out the holes wiped inside of machine out checked the little holes they appear to not be blocked.

The softner is siphoned out by water effectively overflowing the area that you put it in. The tube is quite small, so it easily gets clogged with spilled powder. If you can take it out and separate it, tunr it upside down for a good clean too. You can get the effect by overfilling from the tap and the try should slowly empty.

Alternatively, you may not be sending water to the tray, so blocked nozzle (powder again) or stuck valve.

Bosch wff 1401 not emptying water therfor not able to spin the pump goes round but water does not empty if i drain the water the machine will spin

If you have not already done so, then check and clean filter located at bottom front right of washer behind drop down cover.
If it still does not empty, then it is either blocked between the pump and tge waste outlet, or the pump itself could be faulty.

Water left in fabric dispenser after load


The dispensers work by the siphon principle. You load the softener and at the proper time, the machine diverts water to the softener cup raising the level. In the softener cup, there is a tube loosely covered with a cap. When the level in the softener cup is raised high enough, a siphon effect is started and the softener is pulled from the cup into the washer. This will continue until the water quits flowing and air gets under tha cap, breaking the siphon. The amount of water remaining in the cup is dependent on the level of the cap, and the amount of residual water remaining in the dispenser fill tube once the siphon effect is broken. You can see this effect for yourself: take a measuring cup and slowly pour water into the softener cup, raising the level above the max line. When the level gets high enough, the contents of the cup will dispense. You can remove the cover cap that is a part of the dispenser and clean it; it will help. Removing the entire tray and cleaning all of the tubes and the cap assembly will also help. The only other thing that can be done is to change the dispensing supply valve, as it sounds like there may be some leak by after the fabric softener is dispensed. Having residual water isn't really hurting anything. It's only water, and the machine has dispensed the softener! Try the cleaning part first as this usually corrects the issue, and then the repair technician if it still bothers you. For as much as the extnded warranty costs, you should be completely satisfied with your machine.

The fabric dispenser does not empty

At the dispenser, remove and clean the cap that covers the tube in the dispenser tray, also clean the notch where the cap sits on the tray. The tube and cap work as a syphon, and something is not seated quite right. The softener is pulled out of the dispenser when water raises the level enough to start the syphonong effect. Once the water quits going into the dispenser tray, the syphoning continues until the level gets low enough for air to get under the cap, breaking the syphon. This usually leaves very little water in the dispenser.

I have a Bosch WFF 1401. I removed the drawer as I sometimes do to clean it. Since I replaced the drawer the softner section is always filled with water and never empties.

There can be 2 reasons. The centre section dispenses the fabric softener in the last rinse. It works on a syphon effect.
If it is not assembled correctly the water flows over the side to avoid a flood and leaves the middle section full at the end. Make sure the inner pipe is inside the outer pipe and that both are completely clear of softener residue. As you have just reassembled it this is the most likely cause.
The second reason is the water inlet can become blocked therefore not creating sufficient flow to create a syphon effect. It gets blocked with black gunk and needs to be cleaned with pipe cleaners or a long cable tie. There are 4 rectangular holes above the centre section, near the front. They can be seen easily if you take the drawer out.

Hope this helps

Bosch classixx washing machine softner dispenser fills with water will not empty

I have had this problem and found that it is due to not enough water getting into the softener chamber. THere are holes above the drawer in the inside that can sometimes get clogged up with muck, if you clean these out the water will flow and the syphon effect will work correctly.

Bleach and softener dispensers filled with water at end of cycle

Yes, remove the dispenser tray by pressing on the button on the softner and pulling out tray completely. Now lift the flap over the softner compartment and clean thourougly with hot water, making sure all tubes and holes are free from residue softner/detergents. Replace flap by making sure the bigger tube fits OVER the smaller tube and click into place. Replace tray. Water is present due to the "syphon effect" of the dispenser not working, caused by residue detergents blocking the tubes/holes. Oshie
