Fabric conditioner stays in tray - water not feeding into it?

Hi,

The water does not appear to be feeding into the fabric conditioner section of the tray. I have cleaned the tray and all around the tray area. Can you please advise?

Many thanks.

Hello Angel. Let's clean up the entire washing machine's insides. Pour 2 cups of White Vinegar into your washer's fabric conditioner tray adding the hottest water and run through a complete cycle to clean your whole washer and moving parts and hoses.

If the rubber rim is dingy it can be scrubbed with White Vinegar and Baking soda. Make this into a paste and scrub with a nylon scrubber and leave on for a few hours, or if the black stains are in fact those of mildew/mold then I can suggest you use this solution to clean the rubber trim half a cup of Vinegar and add about quarter cup of hot water then add twenty mule team borax about quarter cup add these ingredients to a clean empty sprayer and spray on the rubber then scrub with a old toothbrush or soft brush then allow to sit for about three to four hours then rinse with very hot water and dry with a cloth.

    Hi,


    Thank you so much for your advice. I am going to do the vinegar in a wash cycle. Does it matter which cycle? Letter D ok?


    There is indeed mildew/mould around the drawer and insides. Shall I clean this with a toothbrush & paste as you suggest?


    I'm in the UK so I'm afraid I don't know what 'mule' borax is!


    Many thanks & kind regards,


    Angela

Fabric tray does not clear


Usually means soap dispensing drawer needs to be cleaned, as conditioner is dispensed by syphoning system, Take out soap detergent drawer, clean thoroughly in warm water, make sure drain hole in conditioner compartment is clear.

I have an Aqualux 1200 washer/dryer. After the wash cycle the fabric conditioner compartment of the tray is full of water and the fabric conditioner appears not to have been flushed into the machine


If the dispensers are in their proper spot it is normal for some water to be left in the fabric softener dispenser. When you add your softener add water to dilute it as some softeners are very thick and don't dissolve well especially in cold water

Fabric conditioner stays in the dispenser tray


the holes above the fabric softener tray that shower into it may be blocked. use an upturned washing up brush to scrub them with a little fairy liquid and see if that works, it does for me. also could be a water pressure issue.

Fabric softner


Remove the dispenser tray. Inspect the area just above the fabric softener portion of the dispenser. There should be a series of holes where water feeds into the tray during the rinse cycle. Sometimes these holes become clogged with fabric softener residue. If the holes are clogged, water will never dispense the fabric softener out and it will stay in the tray. If you take some cotton swabs and meticulously clean all the holes out, I bet your problem will go away. Let me know if this was helpful to you.
