Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

In my Duet Whirlpool washer, when I put fabric softener in it doesn't drain into the wash cycle. It just stays in the loading container. The actual laundry soap does, though.

Hi,
This should be a very simple fix for you.

You can remove the dispensing drawer completely - usually by pushing down on a springy tab. Look along the level of the top for the catch.

When removed, give it a good wash in the sink, as there will be a build up of goo in the little syphon arrangement that dips into the softener area.
If it allows you to unclip it, then do, and rinse it out with running water.
Then dry with kitchen towel. You may need to do this twice.

While the drawer is out, give the hole it goes into a spray with kitchen cleaner, and wipe it clean - don't loose your cloth!
Often this is an area that goes mouldy, leading to a musty smell on the clothes.

Click all together and it should work fine again.
Thanks for using fixya,
If this cures the problem, please rate for others to follow.
