Frigidaire washing machine fabric softner will not dispense out


Hello - There are several things that could cause the fabric softener to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is fabric softener? If it is fabric softener, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the fabric softener dispenser with water. The fabric softener dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.

When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the fabric softener solenoid is energized and water flows into the fabric softener dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and softener and water flow into the tub.

If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is pure softener you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the softener solenoid and a volt meter is required.

If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. **** will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. The instructions for cleaning the dispenser should be located on page 43 of the use and care guide that came with the washer.

If you don't have the use and care guide these instructions will help. Open the dispenser until it stops. In the left rear corner of the dispenser, there is a release that is labeled push. Press down on the push area and you can slide the dispenser drawer out.

Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.

To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the fabric softener compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out.

Hope this information proves to be helpful however if it is ineffective please contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Don't know if this is the answer, but my dispensers stayed filled also. repairman said the water wasn't flowing into the machine quickly enough and therefore not tripping the sensor that told the machine when to disburse the softener and/or bleach. He took the cold watersupply line loose, and the mesh was full of sediment. He said it wasn't necessary to replace the mesh. Sure enough, it started working immediately. He did the same for the hot water line..it wasn't clogged.

Fabric softner compartment won't dispense during wash cycle


Fabric softener is to slow mix with rinse water in the rinse cycle... check the cold water supply line for a clogged screen or a clogged dispenser box cover... hope it helps

Do I only add enough soap in the despensor for 1 load or do I fill it and the machine puts the amount needed in?


1 load worth at a time. The dispenser should add water to the same area you ad your detergent to. Just fill it as you normally would. 1/2 to 1 cap full then your fabric softner and bleach in the other dispensers (if your machine has them)

Water left in bleach and fabric softner after running load


You must take out the compartment and empty it out before adding any bleach the next time, there is a type of button way in the back that you press down on pull out the entire door and empty the water for the next washing. You must press down very hard the entire door does come out check out your book for instructions it is way in the back on the left hand side. This happens to mine once in a while not all the time.

Bleach and Fabric Dispenser not working


Got a Brand new LG ~ WT5001CW toploader today. I did 2 loads of wash. Theres a Bleach Dispenser on the top left side but I didn't use it. In the middle of my 2nd wash I noticed the bleach dispenser was full of water. I thought well maybe after the rinse and the spin it would take the water out. Well when the cycle was complete the Bleach Dispenser was still full of water.
I took the Bleach dispenser out and checked the holes to see if anything was plugged, didn't look like it. Was wondering if anyone knew how to solve this problem or do you think that since I took the bleach dispenser out and put it back it that it might work for my next load ??
Any opinions will be greatly appreciated !! Thanks Much !!

Bleach and fabric softner containers do not dispense


I have the exact same problem. However the bleach dispenser has ruined colored clothes by dispensing leftover bleach from the previous white wash on colored clothes. i have had many parts replaced to no avail. Maytag has just agreed to buy back the washer for the full purchase price and replace it with a Maytag or Whirlpool product of my choice. I hope I have better kuck this time.
