Question about Washing Machines
I have a model WFXD5201UC/02 that has a problem with the softener dispenser. After the washer has completed its cycle the softener dispenser has water remaining in the dispenser. We have cleaned the dispenser but trhis has not solved the problem.
siemens XL1200 I have the same problem with the softener dispenser
softener stays in the dispenser until the end of the cycle .Obviously a blockage in the system somewhere
My dispenser was always full at the end of the programme. I took the drawer out and pushed a drinking straw down the hole that takes the conditioner into the machine... this was bunged up with gunge... has been fine since.
To get rid of the residue and get your machine sparkling... 1/2 cup of Washing soda crystals on a 60 degree wash. Run machine with no washing and let it run the full cycle..
Add 1 desert spoonful of washing soda to every wash.. sprinkled in the gap in the door seal to keep the machine in tip top condition and smelling great.
You will find your conditioner smells amazing when you get rid of the gunk...

If water is being dispensed from both sides of the detergent tray, dismantle washing machine and remove top plate of the detergent tray and clean thoroughly. Water overflows from both sides during the rinse cycle to add softener to the rinse. On our washing machine it was blocked. During the service it was changed but can be washed out to solve problem.

Is water left in the dispenser at the end of the cycle?
About two tablespoons of water remaining in the dispenser compartment at the end of the cycle is normal. At the end of the wash cycle, fresh water automatically cleans the dispenser. Check that the cycle is complete before opening the dispenser drawer.
Is the dispenser drawer clogged?
A clogged dispenser can block the flow of water through the dispenser and cause water to leak out. Manually remove the dispenser, and clean any leftover detergent or additives that could clog the flow of water through the dispenser. Also, check that the detergent drawer is always completely closed during the cycle. If the drawer is not closed completely, water can leak out onto the floor.
Are the additives dispensing too early?
Here are a few things that can cause the additives (detergent, fabric softener or liquid chlorine bleach) to dispense early:
The additives will not dispense until the proper time if the DELAY WASH option is selected.

Testimonial: "Suggestion worked, but didn't really snap off. Had to wiggle dispenser & finally able to snap it out. Cleaned with a toothbrush and snapped back."
Tips for a great answer:
Hello - There are several things that could cause the fabric softener to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is fabric softener? If it is fabric softener, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the fabric softener dispenser with water. The fabric softener dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.
When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the fabric softener solenoid is energized and water flows into the fabric softener dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and softener and water flow into the tub.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is pure softener you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the softener solenoid and a volt meter is required.
If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. **** will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. The instructions for cleaning the dispenser should be located on page 43 of the use and care guide that came with the washer.
If you don't have the use and care guide these instructions will help. Open the dispenser until it stops. In the left rear corner of the dispenser, there is a release that is labeled push. Press down on the push area and you can slide the dispenser drawer out.
Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.
To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the fabric softener compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out.
Hope this information proves to be helpful however if it is ineffective please contact a professional to move forward accurately.
