Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It could be that it is the conditioner/softener tray which needs a thorough clean by following these guidance notes,
paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD ;-0)
-------------------------------------
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-

  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of the above should enable you remove it
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
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 this does not work, pull out the dispenser drawer far enough to be able to just see the softener tray, select the (final?) rinse and check that water is entering the tray. If it isn't there is a fault with the water distribution and an engineer call is required ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

How do i get the detergent/fab. softener tray clean? It wont drain because of the softener build-up.


Softener is a combination of wax, transport solution, and perfume.
What clogs up the dispenser is the wax.

Try pouring very hot water (close to boiling) down the path that the softener takes to get to the tub. This will melt the wax build up and wash it out.

You will need to do this multiple times to get all the wax melted.
Don't use water so hot that it melts the plastic parts.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

The fabric dispenser does not release softener into the tub


it may be the water supply to take the fab cond in is either blocked (holes) above the dispenser or the water valve is faulty.

Softener tray filling with water


open the dispenser all the way,place your finger towards the back left of dispenser.you should see a tab,depress the tab and pull entire dispenser cup out.the bleach and fab soft part of the disp has a removable tray.clean all pieces out including the long shafts on the insert.you will more than likely find a build up of softener,this breaks the siphon and does not allow the water to drain out.good luck
