Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Verify first if the bleach/fabric softener compartment in the dispenser drawer
is full of water. If water is present, pull the dispenser drawer out
then release the clip to pull it out completely. Remove the fabric
softener compartment cover and clean the tubes both in the dispenser
cavity and the compartment cover. The tubes fit together but the tube in
the cover does not touch the bottom of the cavity to allow siphoning
action when an overflow situation is created in the compartment to
dispense the fabric softener. No dispensing action will occur if the
tubes are clogged
The fabric softener compartment is filled only with water during the rinse fill as the right-hand side dispenser valve is activated only during this time. Allow the washer to advance to the rinse cycle before checking the fabric softener compartment for water. If the issue is water not being fed to the fabric softener, either the dispenser valve is not working or not activated or the holes where the water is being fed to the compartment is clogged. Check the holes on the dispenser housing directly above the bleach and softener compartment and clear it from clogs.
Swap the dispenser valve wires to check the condition of the dispenser valve if the holes are clear. Put bleach, detergent, and fabric softener in their respective compartments then run the washer and allow it to advance to the rinse cycle. Check which compartment is not flooded or dispensed after the cycle is completed.
