Hi,
Often you dont have to remove the dispenser. just remove the drawer and scrub the holes with a tooth brush or pipe cleaner if necessary.


Hope this will fix your problem for sure. Thank you!

    The other method is removed the unit from the machine, and start cleaning with hot water, a brush, and toothpicks. Then you can move onto white vinegar. Filling the reservoir with vinegar was marginally effective. Most of the problem will be below the reservoir. Flip the unit over and add vinegar to the bottom of the unit, where the reservoir attaches to the base. Then just let it sit for a couple of hours. After that, turn it right side up again and run hot water into the top. Gunk flew out. A thorough rinse, and your dispenser will be back in business..


    Or else you can opt to buy a little plastic ball that dispenses softener(don't want to mention any names here) and it will work great. Best of all the softener ball is cleanable and it only costs around $2.00 so if it gets to the point where you don't want to clean it, throw it out.

Chances are your fabric softener dispenser is clogged. Pour some very hot water into it and clean it out with a pipe cleaner, or a small bottle brush. Joe

By grasping just the fabric softner dispenser and wiggling it from side to side while pulling up the softner dispenser will come out to be cleaned.

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 softner dispenser


Small brush and plain water. Rub, flush, repeat...

If it's clogged where you can't get a brush, pour very hot water into it. Last resort would be blowing it out with an air compressor...

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 is building up in dispenser


Same deal - I have to soak up all the residual water in the softener dispenser between washes. (The detergent and bleach compartments are fine).
