There is no order to fill dispensers as they will dispense at the proper time as designated by the machine control. Just be sure not to overfill. Also, with a model number I can likely find you an e-copy of your Owner's Manual.

Softner is dispensed in Wash cycle

in the top of your soap draw compartment is a lever that switches the water jets over ( for instance on the main wash the jet arm is directed in the main wash compartment which will take away your main wash powder then it moves the jet are to the sofner compartment on the final rinse ) the jet arm somtimes jams and needs cleaning and the small holes above your draw compartments clog with lime build up the thing to do is take out your draw clean the inside at the top where the holes are and take the top off your machine there are two screws at the back top you will see the little ark on your soap draw it will have a return spring on it gently move it from side to side this will clear any obstuction make sure that it will spring back clean any line around the arm ( make sure you switch unplug your machine before you remove the top)

I dont know were to place the bleach at in this machines

There should be three compartments in the dispenser, you would normally put the bleach in to the
main compartment of the dispenser where you put the normal wash powder
This is the largest of the 3 compartments,and is usually in the middle, but sometimes on the right, but it is the largest of the 3,

With a whirlpool front loader, the tray you put the washing powder in has 3 compartments what goes in which compartment

If the model number you have this question listed under is correct, the Duet dispenser tray is arranged as follows:

1. The LEFT compartment is for detergent. There is a separator guide that needs to stay in place. Place it in the forward most position if using liquid detergent and the aftermost position if using powder.

2. The RIGHT FRONT compartment is where you put liquid fabric softener.

3. The RIGHT REAR compartment is where you add liquid bleach.

An illustration with full explanation is available on Page 12 of the Whirlpool Duet owner's manual. If you no longer have a manual, you can go to and download or print a copy for FREE.

If you have any further questions, or if your model number is different, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

What do the symbols inside the soap drawer mean. One is obviously for soap powder, one has a sort of simple flower symbol and the other a kind of W symbol. Which is bleach and which isfabric softner? E...

Hi, Hope this help's, the flower type symbol is for the fabric softner, that would leave the other for bleach. If it is a "W" it may stand for whites. Thank's for visiting "fixya" and I hope this answer's your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Good luck, macmarkus :)

Bleach compartment?

You normally use bleach to clean your washer. I have a washer nearly 15 years, never once put bleach, even for cleaning. Never cleaned it either, except dusting the exterior. I use powders for frontloaders. They seldom make these washers today, non-electronic. What they do today is make one to last about 2 years, then make you junk it & go for another - same story. Keeps their factories your time & expense. Funny is'nt it, but absolutely true.

Soap powder remains in the soap compartment

Depending on which compartment the powder is remaining in, it could be low water pressure causing the problem.
If it is taking some down, but not all the powder, then try putting the powder towards the front of the compartment.
If all else fails then I suggest you get one of these dispenser balls that you put straight in the drum with the washing.
Plz rate this solution.

Detergent drawer

I ended up having to call Samsung support for this same question. Left to right two vertical bars = detergent (liquid or Powder) flower = softner, single vertical bar = bleach.
