When cleaning the softener chamber, make sure you remove and clean the syphon tube thoroughly.

This is the only chamber designed to handle liquid. Otherwise, check that you have sufficient water pressure and that the cold valve opens fully. If you dont hear a decent gush of water during the rinse cycle, it's either pressure or the valve.

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.

The detergent dispenser want despense the fabric softner


Hello. This is a common problem due to the fact that fabric softener collects in the dispenser and gums it up. Begin with an empty washing machine. Add two cups of vinegar to the fabric softener dispenser and then run the machine on the maximum water and hottest water setting. Once the cycle is complete check it out. It will be as clean as a new machine. If this treatment didn't completely clean out the dispenser, repeat the cleaning a second time with two more cups of vinegar. regards, Joe
ps - kindly rate my answer as helpful. Thanks.

Fabric softener doesn't empty during wash. I use he softener, and don't overfill the basin. The washing machine completes the cycle, but the softener doesn't empty.


my son had this same problem and when we took the dispenser out and checked the hoses they were clogged with semi hardened fabric softener that didn't pass through. they always used a warm wash with a cold rinse and since i told them to use a hot water wash with a cold rinse at least once a month they have not had a problem. hope this helps.

Water Softner Dispense wont empty - Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 HE3t


I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.

Fabric Softener doesn't empty


My husband just fixed ours after not seeing a solution on any other site. He pulled out the dispensing unit and pulled off the blue plastic piece on the top of the fabric softener and bleaching section. He then ran warm/hot water (not boiling hot) through the holes where the fabric softener is suppose to flow through. This cleaned out excess fabric softener that had coagulated in the elbow and blocked the flow of softener to the unit.
