Question about Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I hope you do not mind me saying this but, although you have cleaned the softener drawer, the siphoning tube is often overlooked because it is difficult to access.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
If all is clear it could be that the water dispensing is not filling the softener tray itself. It is possible to check by selecting (final?) rinse and pulling the drawer out very slightly until you can see and hear the water running in. If it isn't it's a call-out ;-0(
