Question about Hotpoint WMA32 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The condtioner draw

The conditioner draw does not empty properly. Instead of being completely empty it's full of a mix of water and conditioner. We checked the outlet pipe and that is clear. Any ideas?

Bosch maxx 1000 - when finished cycle, leaves central fabric conditioner drawer full of water + trace of condtioner.


Check that the hose that connects the drawer to the tub is clean, fabric conditioner normally gunks up especially on colder wash cycles.

My conditioner draw just fills with water and never releases the conditioner into the wash. I have a John Lewis machine I have washed the drawer and the inside of the machine draw housing still no luck...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I hope you don't mind me saying so but often the softener dispensing siphon tube gets missed when cleaning the dispenser 'cos it's difficult to see!----------->
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

If this isn't the problem it could be that the water dispensing is not working correctly. It is easy to check by selecting (final?) rinse, pulling the drawer slightly out and seeing and hearing whether water is being fed into the softener tray. If is isn't then it is a call-out ;-0(

Fabric conditioner compartment doesnt empty properly. Ive tried cleaning out drawer but still no luck.


If you can remove the dispenser from the machine try soaking it in HOT water. The fabric softeners can cause a wax like build up that can clog the dispenser. If the dispenser will not come out of the machine then pour Hot water into it, cycle the machine and repeat. It took a long time to clog and will take a while to remove the clog(several cycles). This will work but will take time. Mix water with your softener to keep it from cloging again, it will thin the softener and stop the build up. If you add 50/50 water/conditioner shake well and use twice the normal amount so you are getting the full amount of softener/conditioner into the washer. This will help i had a similar problem with my front loading washer.

Washing machine will not draw fabric conditioner


The Solution: Top up the softener tray with extra water so that it is up to the 'max level' mark.

The softener tray works by a siphon action. Thus, the reason the tray does not empty is that not enough water is added by the machine during the softening cycle, so that the machine does not completely fill the softening tray; only when the softening tray is filled beyond the 'max' mark does the siphon action works. A partially filled tray will never empty - it's impossible due to the siphon.

The reason that not enough water is added to the tray during the softening action is that the water inlet of the machine is partial blocked (you can try to fix that) but it is simpler to just added more water to the conditioner tray.

Thus, the easiest way to ensure that the softener tray empties every time (after adding the softener to the softener tray of course) is to top up the softener tray with extra water, top it up to the 'max level' line (keep a bottle of water by the machine). That way, even if only a little water is added to the softener tray during the softening cycle by the machine it is enough to trigger the siphon action and the tray will empty!

Works for me every time, and no need to remove any parts - I used to take the tray out, clean it, scrub the outlet holes that fill the tray etc, but they used to gum up again quite quickly!

Hope that helps

Fabric Dispenser


The detergent dispenser is located above the detergent drawer. A water pipe is connected to it and water entrance and distributed to drawer's cells (following the programmed cycle) by a lever's movement (part of the dispenser). The lever movement is controlled by two solenoids that received their power from the timer. By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the dispenser. Disconnect the power cable from the machine before moving to next test !!!! Look first that they are not any disconnected wires. Move manually dispenser's lever and see if water running to all cells (depend on your movement). In case it doesn't work properly remove the unit from the machine and try to clean it (I hope it will help, otherwise you should replace the unit). In case it works properly (manually) - you should test by a multi-tester solenoid's resistance. the one that doesn't have a resistance measurement should be replaced. Good luck !!
