My washing machine has stopped taking the softner at the end of the wash.
I add comfort to every wash, however over the past two weeks the comfort is still there when i go to load the next wash.
I have thinned the comfort as suggested in the handbook incase of blockages, however it has not improved.

Since down comforters are very light in weight, they confuse energy efficient front loader washing machines in how much water to add. Therefore, very little water is used, which results in a semi-damp comforter at the end of a wash. Pre-soaking the comforter beforehand would help, however, now the comforter weighs a ton, and the machine will vibrate like crazy during a spin cycle. It may be better to have the comforter dry cleaned.
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.
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.
Try a "good quality" name brand liquid softener. Some softeners out there are real thick and settle out to be paste. This problem was encountered by me and since I changed to a real liquid, it went away.
open the soap drawer when softener should be taken and see if there is a jet of water into the conditioner box. if not, a common cause is the jets in the roof of the box blocked. poke a hairpin in the holes in the roof of the box and see if this cures the problem.
if the rinse water does come in, this means that the actual water valve is ok
