Likely problem is thqat the dispensing switch inside the washer does not work. Unplug the machine!!!
Undo the screws on the back, at the top of the machine. The top cover should cover should off, backward and expose 2 tio 3 of the these switches. Under the top cover there may be an instruction sheet, that may have a map of the position of the switches, and possibly of test codes. If it has test codes, follow the instuction to test the dispenser solenoids. If you don't hear a click when performing the test, the dispenser is likely bad. Test the other switch(es). If it/they click then you have a bad dispenser solenoid.

Replace it and problem should be corrected. Or, call service personnel if you cannot perform the ttesting described above,.

The fabric conditioner is still in the drawer when programme is finished


The hose from the drawer to the drum is probably clogged with gummed up conditioner. Depending on the machine you can run hot water down the hose to unclog it, or you may need to run a piece of wire down the hose to unclog it (careful not to damage the hose).

The problem is simple: the fabric conditioner I put in the drawer compartment isn't draining into the main drum ... is still in the drawer when I empty the machine of my washed clothes. I've cleaned lots...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry to ask and please don't take this the wrong way but did you manage to remove the whole dispenser drawer and clear out the siphoning tube in the conditioner tray when you cleaned the 'gunk' out? If not please try the following guidance notes, paying particular attention to the bit in bold near the end ;-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 these should enable you remove it
(I am having to guess some of the following!)
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

Water begins to drain into the detergent drawer but does not drain into drum fast enough so the drawer area begins to fill and then begins to spill out of the drawer area all over the floor. If I press...


remove the drain pump and check out.
This is inevitably caused by a blockage. The small fabric conditioner compartment in the soap dispenser drawer has a removable plastic cap. This cap fits on the top of a tube which has a hole running through it where the water should siphon through.

When the time comes for the fabric conditioner to be released, cold water enters the small compartment and just washes the conditioner over the top and down the dispenser to the tub. When the water stops flowing, all that is left is the clear water. This water should siphon up the inside of the cap and down the tube.

This tube often gets blocked with the conditioner and if you remove the dispenser drawer and take off the cap you can give the whole thing a good clean out. If the cap is missing, the siphoning will not occur.

To test the function, hold the soap drawer under the tap and allow the water to fill the fabric compartment to overflowing. When you turn off the tap, the remaining water should slowly siphon out of the hole under the cap.

its the problem in the pump and something is getting blocked in the pump so water is not getting out.

  1. Unplug the washer. Remove the three screws along the bottom of the toe panel and pull the panel forward to remove it.
  2. Put your bucket or towels under the drain pump. Open the pump slowly so the water doesn't all spill out at once. If you have a wet/dry vacuum, you can connect it to the drain hose to remove the water from the washer before opening the pump.
  3. Open the door covering the pump wiring and disconnect the wiring.
  4. Remove the two drain lines from the pump.
  5. Remove the screw that attaches the pump to the washer frame and pull out the pump.
  6. if the pump is leaky or cracked it needs replacement.

Conditioner isn't being taken in to the machine


You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Part from drawer compartment has come loose and I don't know where it attaches. During the wash water then comes out of the drawer compartment. The piece is about 6cm long and must funnel water. Can you...


The part you are referring to sounds like part of the conditioner compartment, it syphons the conditioner into the drum on the last rinse, it should fit in the smallest compartment of the soap draw.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
