Check the hoses leading to the jets in the tray to see if they are colapsed, kinked, or clogged.

Front loader. Why doesn't fabric softener dispenser empty?


It can be two things. First, what is left in the dispenser? If its the fabric softener, then the water valve may be faulty. The water valve will have multiple feeds and the fabric softener might be bad. If its a combination of water and softener, then the dispenser might be clogged. You can remove the slide out tray and clean it. Look for build up of fabric softener that might be there. Good Luck?

Brand new Cabrio washer model #WTW7300XW1 ---fabric softener dispenser fills with water after wash load.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is a note from the users manual that is important:
IMPORTANT: Fabric Softener option must be selected to ensure proper distribution at correct time in cycle. Do not overfill or dilute. Overfilling dispenser will cause fabric softener to immediately dispense into washer.

You have to select the fabric softener option with each cycle.
It is normal for small amounts of water to be remain in dispenser at the end of the cycle.

Feel free to call the Help line and make a phone inquiry Make aure to pass your model number to them.

Fabric softener dispenser fills up with clear water after washing cycle is complete. I do not use fabric softener .


Purchase some fabric softener and place it in its normal location at the beginning of the cycle. At the end of the cycle check to see if fabric softener has been dispensed and whether there is water in the cup.

If the fabric softener is gone, but there is water in the fabric softener cup, then your problem may be with the water valve assembly. The water valve assembly (as one complete unit) has a separate solenoid for hot and cold water temperatures, bleach and fabric softener. The fabric softener solenoid on the water valve assembly could be defective (allowing water to fill the fabric softener cup).

Contact an appliance service company.

Washing machine will not draw fabric conditioner


The Solution: Top up the softener tray with extra water so that it is up to the 'max level' mark.

The softener tray works by a siphon action. Thus, the reason the tray does not empty is that not enough water is added by the machine during the softening cycle, so that the machine does not completely fill the softening tray; only when the softening tray is filled beyond the 'max' mark does the siphon action works. A partially filled tray will never empty - it's impossible due to the siphon.

The reason that not enough water is added to the tray during the softening action is that the water inlet of the machine is partial blocked (you can try to fix that) but it is simpler to just added more water to the conditioner tray.

Thus, the easiest way to ensure that the softener tray empties every time (after adding the softener to the softener tray of course) is to top up the softener tray with extra water, top it up to the 'max level' line (keep a bottle of water by the machine). That way, even if only a little water is added to the softener tray during the softening cycle by the machine it is enough to trigger the siphon action and the tray will empty!

Works for me every time, and no need to remove any parts - I used to take the tray out, clean it, scrub the outlet holes that fill the tray etc, but they used to gum up again quite quickly!

Hope that helps

Fridgidaire front load will not empty fabric


Hello, W/D here.

There are a couple of reasons why the fabric softener will not dispense. If everything else dispenses properly (detergent and bleach), then I would suspect a bit of plugging. If the softener remains in the dispenser, the water valve above the tray may be sticking. You'll have to get the top up to check it. If there is water in the tray, or some water/softener, then you'll need to look at the overflow cap. Here's how that works: Your dispensing trays for bleach and softener have a raised tube built into them, and each is covered with a loose fitting cap. When water is let into the tray, the level rises under the cap until it overflows, creating a syphon. The softener is literally pulled from the tray, and chased by the water. When the water stops, the tray level continues to drop, until air gets into the cap, breaking the syphon. The cap can be removed and cleaned. Sometimes the tray has to be removed first. Theres a catch towards the rear of the tray.
Best regards, W/D

The fabric softener dispenser is no longer dispensing..Why? Was working just fine until yesterday and can't figure out why. Pulled tray out, cleaned it, cleaned inside of where the tray goes in and sits....


Wait until your machine has just started the rinse cycle and then pull out the dispenser drawer as far as you dare.You should see a jet of water shooting down into the fabric softener drawer. if not, then you most likely have a faulty operating valve and it will need to be removed to clean or replace it. The part is fairly cheap compared to a call out charge so play safe and have it replaced. As long as you're aware of basic safety procedures regarding electricity and water then it's certainly a DIY job if you can get the parts.

If you do have the jet of water then the fabric softener siphon is almost certainly blocked.

Pull out the dispenser and look at it's underside (I'll assume the top of the dispenser is spotless). Look below the fabric softener compartment and you should see a hole which seems to be dead-ended. This is the siphon. Clean it out thoroughly, and look at the top of the dispenser to see whether the part of the fabric dispensing compartment which looks like a partial lid can be unclipped (they do on every washing machine I've looked at before). if it does unclip then you'll find that the siphon is made of a dead ended tube (usually moulded into the partial lid) which fits over an open ended tube (the one you just tried clearing).Make sure that they're both spotless with no slimy black gunk and reassemble.

I hope you've found this answer helpful and only ask in return that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Fabric Softener Won't Dispense


The fabric softener dispenser is notorious for clogging. Liquid fabric softener is essentially a liquid form of wax. After a period of time it begins to gunk up the inside of the fabric softener dispenser. If you remove the dispenser drawer and look into the cavity, there should be a series of holes in the upper part of the compartment where water sprays into all the dispenser trays. These holes get gunked up and clogged and water will not dispense properly. As a result, the washer goes through a complete cycle, but the dispenser stays full. If this is the case, you can take some cotton swabs and/or toothpicks and clean these holes real good. It may be a bit meticulous, but it should take care of the problem. Post back and let me know if this helps.

Fabric softener not going into the machine


yes it should come in during the rinse cycle. if its not coming in at all then youll need to replace the valve that goes to the softener. to get to it take the top off the washer. youll see 3 valves where the hose connect. trace the hoses from the dispenser back to see which valve you need to change
