Oblem:
The detergent and softner dispenser is gravity feed and builds up with "gunk". It has to be cleaned regularly and while the tray is removable, the inlets are not; so you have to fish out the sludge with a paper towel.

Solution:
This common on almost all front load washers.
Remove the dispenser tray. Remove the blue liquid detergent cup. Add all to the top rack of the dishwasher---run a cycle. This makes much less a chore of cleaning the dispenser tray assy.

You may be over sudsing the machine and it thinks the water is not drain and stops. Run a empty load on a cold water cycle and not hot water. then cut back on the soap. if you use fabric softener the cut back even more.

Softener tray is not draining during wash cycle


This tray empties during the spin cycle not wash cycle. Is the agitator spinning during the spin cycle? If so, you are getting softener on clothes during this cycle as required.

GE washing machine leaks at bottom


If this machine has a place to put pour fabric softener in that's sits under the lid on the cabinet? If so, the hose that allows the softener drain into the tub is either leaking or is disconnected.

Clothes softener does not drain out of the holder


Do your clothes smell funny? Does it take forever for a load to wash? That happened to me and there was a wire loose in the machine somewhere and it would quit mid cycle and never finished a rinse or spin cycle. My fabric softener never drained either!

Maytag Atlantis 7600 spin cycle (top load)


the maytag runs in one direction for wash. it reverses to drain and spin - check for a broken or loose belt. maytags I have run into circa 1989 have two belts. as for the softener dispense, there may be a solenoid valve that is supposed to open. may be just a flapper type of valve. softener goes in by gravity feed.
