I have a 90 series washer, about 15 years old, the fabric softener dispenser is not emptying. I have pulled it off and cleaned it, but it only works once after I do that.


HI,
I would re-clean the dispenser, use hot water can completely clean this. If you don't add water to fabric softener, it will cake up and cause this issue. This problem can also cause spotting and appear to have issues on clothing. Just soak dispenser using hot water and pressure to clean out all the ports and openings within the dispenser.
I hope this helps, worst case you can replace dispenser, but I would just clean it (cheaper).

Water goes thru fabric softener dispenser not soap dispenser!


Yes you will need a service call, you may have a issue with the water valve or control, At the start of the cycle it should not be filling the softener dispenser till later in the program.

MY 90 WERIES KENMORE WASHING MACHINE FABRIC SOFTENER DISPENSER DOES NOT EMPPTY


I am having the same issue. I do know that the reason you don't see any physical provision for it to drain is because it is drained using a siphoning effect. water is put on top of the fabric softener until it reaching a point where the siphoning begins. Once the siphoning begins, the whole thing will drain out until there isn't much left (however there will always be a little water left). I know siphoning works with my drawer b/c when I take it out and fill it with water slowly until the siphoning begins, the whole thing drains out. There must be another reason why the fabric softener isn't working.

Kenmore Elite HE4T Washing Machine Diagnostic Test Didn't complete and clothes aren't spun as dry as in the past I have a Kenmore Elite HE4T washing machine and I noticed that recently it isn't getting all of the clothes completely dry from the final spin cycle. Thus, the dryer has to run through two cycles to get the clothes dry. I did a bunch of research and made sure there weren't any kinks or blockages in the drain lines; and opened up the bottom of the washer and cleaned out the drain cleanout. I found a few pennies, but everything seemed to be working ok. I ran a load and had the bottom open so that I could make sure the motor, drain and belt were all working properly. The drain does get the water out of the washer, so the clothes aren't sitting in water, they just don't seem to be spun as fast or as long as they used to. I always put it on the "extra high" spin setting no matter which type of load I run. So, I found a way to run the diagnostic test on the washer and it went through C0-C5 (the agitation step) and all worked great, until it wouldn't come out of C5 after at least 10 minutes and go thru C6-C8. I had to cancel the diagnostic test and hit the "drain and spin" button to get all of the water back out of the washer. BTW, the "drain and spin" seems to get the clothes a bit drier than when I have it run through the "normal" cycle with the "extra high" spin. If anyone has any other thoughts, I would really appreciate it. This unit is in a small space with the dryer attached so to take it out and do repairs is a pretty big hassle. It has had a new control board and two new fill valves in the 10+ years that I have owned it. Questions I have: 1.should I remove the entire drain pump to make sure there isn't anything lodged in it? 2. could it be the belt slipping slightly and keeping the spin from reaching its 1200 RPMs? 3. Anything else I may be missing???
