Frigidare top loading washing machine, 1995 model # GLMS174SAS4


I believe the softener is dispensed through centrifugal force when the machine is in the high speed spin after draining and before filling for the rinse cycle. I had the same issue on another machine. Use very hot water and a washcloth to clean out the softener cup. When adding softener at the beginning of the load, only add the recommended amount and then fill the remainder of the cup with water.

Gltf1670as1can you use powder detergent in ?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you want to know if you can use powder detergent in your Frigidaire washer, model# GLTF1670AS1. Below are the advised steps for the detergent dispenser of your washer.

• Add measured detergent to the detergent compartment of the dispenser drawer.
• Detergent is flushed from the dispenser at the beginning of the cycle. Either powdered or liquid detergent can be used. Note: Liquid detergent will drain into the washer drum as it is added.
• Low sudsing detergent is recommended for this washer. Use the manufacturer's recommended amount.
• If low sudsing detergent is not available, a reduced amount of regular detergent may be used. Because
reducing the amount of detergent may reduce cleaning, it is important to pretreat stains, sort carefully by color and soil level, and avoid overloading.
• Detergent usage may need to be adjusted for water temperature, water hardness, size and soil level of the load.
• For best results, avoid oversudsing.


Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

It will not dispense the fabric softener.


Hi
You'll need to clean the dispenser by removing it. Use white vinegar and spray then spray the dispenser & agitator with it too. Use hot water after a minute and vinegar will wash out the softener. Try using a soft brush to clean it. Try running a cycle with hot water and bleach (use no soap). Avoid using large amount of soap. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Why does a lot of detergent remain in the soap dispenser after a washing cycle is complete


Was the dispenser cup wet when you added detergent?
Make sure the dispenser cup is dry before adding powdered detergent. If dispenser cup is wet, the detergent can clump.
Is the cycle incomplete?
If the previous cycle did not complete, the detergent can become caked in the dispenser cup if it is left sitting in the dishwasher.
Is the detergent old?
Older detergent exposed to air will clump and not dissolve well, which will cause the dispenser door to stick to the detergent. Replace detergent if necessary and store the detergent in a tightly closed container in a cool dry place.
Is the water temperature too low?
For best washing and drying results, water should be 120oF (49o C) as it enters the dishwasher.
Were items blocking the dispenser that kept it from opening?
Items blocking the detergent dispenser will keep it from opening. Make sure water action can reach the dispenser.
Detergent guidelines
  • Use automatic dishwashing detergent only.
  • Other detergents can produce excessive suds that can overflow out of the dishwasher and reduce washing performance.
  • Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.
  • Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.
  • Add detergents just before starting the cycle.
  • The amount of detergent to use depends on the hardness of your water and the type of detergent.
  • If you use too little, dishes won't be clean.
  • If you use too much in soft water, glassware will etch.
  • Suggested fill amounts are for standard powdered detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or concentrated powdered detergent. Follow instructions on the package when using these detergents.
  • Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find out your water's hardness by asking your local water department, water softener company, or county extension agent.

Detergent dispenser is filling with water and water is running out of the dispenser. cannot see anything wrong , cracked or missing o-ring


Remove the dispenser tray from the machine and clean the exit passage if plugged with washing compounds. Use a liquid detergent if you are not already doing so. If the tray looks ok, you may have excess water pressure which might be forcing more water flow than the tray can handle. Another respondent suggested turning the supply faucets down somewhat to reduce the amount of water coming into the machine. If you have your own well, the system water pressure can be turned down at the pump control (about 35 to 40 PSI is about right). Hope this helps!

Why doesn't my hoover se160e washer not fill up with water ? it always fills with just enough water and its very annoying as it doesn't washes the soap out of the clothes ! Is there any way to override the...


Hi no there is no override, But if you put your machine onto a rince check that it is taking cold water to rince clothes. It could be that a celonoid is not working. Although i often find most times to much powder is used in the first place. If this problem carries on it may be worth getting some one to check your machine.

The Liquid Fabric Softner dosn't dispense completely. Approximately 1/4 of it is left in the chamber.


the problem is that the hole that drains the chamber is partially blocked with dry fabric softener. pour a cup of viinegar in to the dispenser and do the wash using the hot water cycle and no clothes. this will clean it for u

use white vinegar if u have it or apple cider vinegar

Detergent in clothes


How much detergent are you using? I'm wondering if there is a residual amount of detergent left in the washer. Does it have a dispenser? If your washer has a dispenser for liquid detergent you could try pouring a small amount of really hot water into the dispenser to ty to clear it. Then try running a small empty cycle or two with plain cold water. Remember not to ever use more detergent than is recommended for your washer.


Thank you for using Fixya.
