SOURCE: fabric softener dispenser no longer works on my Bosch

Remove soap drawer completely from washer, and thoroughly clean all parts of it, paticularly the conditioner compartment..
Get a piece of stiff wire, and make a right angled bend in the end of it, then poke the wire into all the holes in the top of the soap drawer compartment to clear any possible blockage.
This should solve the prob.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Hi,

I do not know your particular machine but most softener dispensing works in a similar manner.

If you haven't actually removed the whole drawer it is necessary to do so. Some will not come out without releasing some sort of catch. Often this is a lip at the rear middle which requires pressing down as you pull the drawer out. Others have the catch underneath or on the side of the drawer.
Once out remove the cover which is (probably) over the softener bit.There is (probably) a small pipe/tube down which the softener and water should pour. So often this tube is clogged with gunge- a mix of softener and powder. It must be absolutely clear and clean for the mix to escape and empty.
This is well worth checking even if you have washed out the rest of the softener drawer, especially if you have done it 'in'situ'!

I do hope this sorts your problem out.

Good luck,

John C

Fabric softener not dispensing


It might be clogged, try putting some hot water (not boiling hot tap water is fine) to in clog it. Look up the manual and see if the dispenser can be removed for cleaning.

Whirlpool duet washer fabric softener dispenser does not empty


Hi there
I wonder why, mine does though I never use a fabric softener, the water just runs through. It must be clogged somewhere, the only solution I have is the old one. The needle and the thread,try puting a needle through then pull the thread back and forth.
I hope it works

The fabric softener is clogged with dried up fabric softener on my Whirpool Washer. How can I get it cleaned out?


You really cant take them apart without breaking the dispensers. Fabric softner is basically wax and fragrance. Add very hot water to the dispenser to melt the fabric softner. In the future, water down the fabric softner.

My Whirlpool calypso top loading washer poured water from underneath, water everywhere, what do I do and how do I do it?? No codes showed up. Thanks for any info. Rose


Sounds like the seals & gaskets have failed. If you removed the wash plate trying to unjam the washer and did not also replace the gasket kit, you may have violated the integrity of the water tight seals. However, sometimes also the fabric softener dispenser especially, gets clogged and may overflow and leak if the tubes are clogged with coagulated fabric softener. As I am writing this, my washer's fabric softener dispenser is clogged and the method I use to clear it has not worked this time - a cup of boiling water to melt the congealed fabric softener. One has to open the top lid (method varies by Calypso model - Whirlpool or Kenmore) to get to the dispenser tubing and reservoir underneath to get things flowing again, and in fact I have a small water leak on the floor where the dispenser overflowed a bit. That you have a leak, if it happens to come from such a clog, at least gives you a sign that your dispenser solenoids are not malfunctioning, requiring replacement of one of the circuit boards.

Fabric softener dispenser


If you cannot get the dispenser cap opened, submerge and soak it in some hot water. Liquid fabric softener is a type of wax that, over a period of time, will harden and clog the dispenser (as you well know by now). In many cases you do not have to take it apart if you just use the hot water method. You may have to rinse and repeat several times. Try this and let me know if you have any luck. If you require further assistance, please post back with your complete model number, so I can see what type of dispenser cap we are talking about. I hope this helps you.
