Usually it just lifts/pulls off of the top of the agitator. sometimes it may be difficult and need to tip it to one side or the other to get it loose. be careful as you don't want to loose your grip on it as it is slimy.
have fun, best of luck.

Is not taken the softner and the bleach


Clean the dispenser with boiling water and see if it is just a sticking problem, these get gummed up after a while.

My liquid softner does not work. The place you put it in stays full of water all the time . When you add softner to it doesnot seem to put it in the washing machine.


Liquid softener has a tendency to gum up and clog the hose that leads from the dispenser to the washer tub. The fact that water is always in the cup sort of leads to that conclusion. Cleaning it out can be difficult, but there are methods to do it without having to take the machine apart. One way is to use air pressure, but this often is not feasible. Another way is to take a wire, one with the insulation still on it, and thread it carefully down thru the hose to the tub, avoiding puncturing the hose. Once you get the line open, flush it with very hot water.

Detergent dispenser does not dispense.


see the causes and remedies:
Most dispenser problems are due to being gummed up with detergent, fabric softner, bleach residue, and water deposits. First check the dispenser drawer by pulling it out of the dispenser itself. To do this push down on the tab in the back and remove. Check that all is thoroughly clean. No holes blocked up. Now there are several types of dispensers out there but most have holes in the top where it dispenses hot or cold water to the appropriate area. These holes can become plugged up. If you have really hard water I would say replace the dispenser if it is gummed up bad. Otherwwise remove the dispenser and thoroughly clean it out. Before doing this check the solenoids that allow water through the dispenser. The solenoids can be checked with an ohmeter but if all is clean and the solenoid does not open to allow flow replace the unit or solenoid. Connect your ohmeter and refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading. You can also check for voltage going to the solenoid. If you have voltage when each solenoid should be working, example: When the machine should be dispensing fabric softner, The solenoid that allows water to flow through that area should have voltage. If it does replace the solenoid or unit.

The detergent dispenser want despense the fabric softner


Hello. This is a common problem due to the fact that fabric softener collects in the dispenser and gums it up. Begin with an empty washing machine. Add two cups of vinegar to the fabric softener dispenser and then run the machine on the maximum water and hottest water setting. Once the cycle is complete check it out. It will be as clean as a new machine. If this treatment didn't completely clean out the dispenser, repeat the cleaning a second time with two more cups of vinegar. regards, Joe
ps - kindly rate my answer as helpful. Thanks.

Hello sir,i have a kenmore series 90 washer & dryer.this specific machine has top dispensing detergent/bleach&softner.when it becomes time for the softner to be dispensed on the re-fill the machine...


PLease check the hose that goes from the INLET VALVE to the dispensing system cup on your washer. This hose probably has a hole or the plastic dispensor is cracked and therefore leaking.
The inlet valve is working and when the time comes the water goes to the dispensing cup, so the system is working it is just the hose, dispensing cup or both.

Fabric softner dispenser


take the soap dispenser drawer out and clean the drawer and the underneath the drawer, then clean the inside of the machine where the drawer fits into to. It could be caused by a build up of soap.

Kenmore front load washer will not dispense fabric softner


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.
