Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Fabric softners are designed to be thich and tacky so they adhere to clothing. Unfortuneately, that also means they are going to do it even worse in an agitator expecially as there is no water to dilute it. When I clean my fabric softner cup, I generally just throw it in the dishwasher and let it run since there are many areas of it that cannot be disassembled. Please make sure to run it in a cycle all by itself without any dishes. Now as to the removal. There are two main types of dispensers whirlpool has used. The first will have a greenish blue ring around it. Simply lift up on the ring and it will pull off easily. Now the second style is a bit more chalenging. While the cap up top will come off just by rocking it back and forth. Once this is off you will find a cup underneath that sits on 4 "pins" To get the bottom peice off, place one hand on the top part of your agitator and use one hand to twist the base of the fabric softner in a counter-clockwise direction. It will allow it to come off. Once you it off, you will be able to see down inside your agitator. There will be more build up underneath. I would recommend wiping this part out making sure to clean the drain holes that go out to the side. If you attempt to remove the clear cap underneath, it is very difficult to get the seal on it to seat back in properly. To help prevent against future build ups, pre-diluting your fabric softner with water ahead of time will slow the build up.
