Seems like the problem is with the unit's board. You can find the same one beneath your unit, but it can be repaired only by a professional. Sometimes, it should be replaced, which may prove costly. If that is the case, prefer a new one.

I have a whirlpool top load washer It does not have a fabric dispenser. When I try to add fabric softner to the rinse cycle , on restart , it throws out all the water , without rinsing. Help!!!


Hello Lennox Tillett,

There's always those DRYER SHEETS... just as smelly.

I'm guessing that is the DESIGN SPEC...
(washing machine's working as designed)...

(NOT TO BE OPENED DURING CYCLE).

ASSUMING YOU HAVE READ YOUR OWNERS MANUAL..???


Without your make, model and year... One cannot even begin to SPECULATE the risk & prohibitive cost to UPGRADE (electrically modify) your machine...

My wife prohibited my use of that "STUFF" years ago... Feels & smells better without it...

Regardless...

If you go on line to the MANY parts houses, Amazon or eBay... Kohl's... you will find FABRIC SOFTNER DISPENSERS...

I RECOMMEND the PARTS HOUSES...
some devices fit right on the agitator
(if it is not already there).

Happy hunting!!

Htwp1200doww where does fabric softner go


You have to do it manually. Ugh. See below from manual:

Liquid Fabric Softener (Manually add during rinse cycle)
1. Turn OPTIONS knob to FABRIC SOFTENER
2. Measure liquid fabric softener carefully, following instructions on the bottle, and add during the rinse cycle.

OPTIONS (on some models)
Set this option when planning to manually add fabric softener during the rinse cycle or when you use extra detergent or bleach to clean hazily soiled items. It provides an enhanced rinse.

How to add fabric softner to the amana washer with locking lid


Check and see if there is a cup in the top of the agitator. Some machines have you put it there, turning back and forth during wash doesn't bother it, but the spin to empty the wash water causes the softener to go out through slots in the top of the cup and be held in the agitator. when it stops the softener drains into the tub, ready for the rinse cycle.

Fabric softner does not empty into washer during rinse cycle


Hi not sure how these work as we dont have them in the UK. With UK machines the soap and fabric softner are put into a drawer that pulls out the front of the machine. When softner and soap arnt going into machine properly we take drawer out and wash it in warm water, you usually find a lot of gunk built up blocking it, perhaps you have a similar problem. Hope this helps

When to add softner during wash


Hello, the softener is added during rinse circle but bleach needs to be added at the beginning. First add the detergent, then let the water get it nice and sudsy, then add the bleach then the cloths. It is when you get to the rinse circle that you add the softener.

Thanks

Water Softner Dispense wont empty - Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 HE3t


I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.
