Re: front load washer
Check holes under cover for obstruction in dispenser drawer. then check valve operation. there is a handy diagnostic for this. find techsheet on wall on lower left side. set dial to touch up, make sure all leds are off, then press/hold pause/cancel and options within 5 secs of turning off. refer to tech sheet for dial functions, each dial positon back turns on different function.

then the solenoid is not actuating to allow water into drawer. take top off, very easy, two screws in back, pull back, lift off. follow hose from softer cup to little round device/solenoid. check wiring. check hose, tho you would know there was a problem with hose, because you would see a water leak. replace solenoid. hope this is the issue. good luck.

Hope your filter is clean. Don’t wait for the
machine to jam to
look into your filter.
You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and
things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this
works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh
with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any
stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh
pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the
can't you. Thanks.
Take off the top of the front loader, topfrontleft is the dispenser, there is a movable part that was incrusted and unablble to freely move, clean off parts, little water will do, the movavable piece should move back to the roman numeral one, it is spring loaded, put top back on, done.
When cleaning the softener chamber, make sure you remove and clean the syphon tube thoroughly. This is the only chamber designed to handle liquid. Otherwise, check that you have sufficient water pressure and that the cold valve opens fully. If you dont hear a decent gush of water during the rinse cycle, it's either pressure or the valve.
make sure you delute it with water. yes fabric softner will start to stain your clothes if you use too much of it. I would recomend stop useing it for a while. so you can clean the washer out. There is a product called Washer magic or Affresh that cleans out residues built up in your washer. or you can just run several loads of HOT water and bleach to clean it out. The hot water will melt the left over fabric softner in your washer. Fabric softner is kind of like hardend bacon fat thats what it looks like in your washer after time and if you do not clean your washer it builds up and builds up.
Also i do recomend alternating liquid detergent and powdered detergent. The reason why is powder leaves a residue that liquid takes away and vise versa. try this and let me know how it goes
I've had this same problem and solved it by removing the detergent/bleach/softener dispenser drawer from the machine and seriously cleaning out all of the "gunk" from the drawer and from inside the drawer area on washer. Sometimes I have had to repeat the cleaning and then the fabric softener begins dispensing again. I have model # 417.43042200 but it may work on all the Kenmore front loading washers.
