Just had the same problem with a Zanussi JetSystem 1000 - fabric cconditioner was remaining in the drawer - and my wife reckoned the clothes didn't smell as nice!!!
I fixed this in about an hour and a half without any real problem - might be nice having someone bringing in the odd cuppa whilst you're working!!!
Firstly make sure the dispenser drawer is CLEAN - I spent a good half hour brushing it under running water in the sink - make sure it's 'really' clean and that there are no blockages. Remeber there's a small part over where the conditioner goes (has MAX on it) that lifts up. Also thoroughly clean the part of the machine where it slides into, this is not as easy - I found an old fashioned scrubbing brush and plenty of water worked well. Don't worry if dirty water goes into the machine - you'll be running it empty after the repair to check that all is ok...
Next step is to remove the top by unscrewing a couple of small bolts at the back, right at the top, one in each corner, just behind the top panel and slide the panel backwards and away from the machine.
Make sure the machine is NOT connected to the mains - remove the plug to be sure. Slowly turn the programming knob and you should see a plastic lever being moved as the programmer goes 'round. This plastic lever is near the front of the machine and angles 'round over the dispenser tray assembly. This turns a turbine-like plastic wheel (you can't see it as it's over the top of the dispenser tray, near the back). You'll know you're looking at the right thing as there are a, b, c, d markings around the outside and the wheel (from the top it looks like a plastic disc) has a little pointer. This moves 'round between the various letters as the programmer goes 'round. In my machine it sits half way between a and b when the machine is off. It is this that routes the water to the various compartments within the dispenser tray and if I remeember rightly it MUST point to 'd' to send water to the fabric conditioner tray. Turn the programmer knob slowly to check that this happens.
Whilst I was at it I removed this assembly and thoroughly cleaned it - it's a bit tricky but can be tackled by anyone with a bit of patience. Remove the plastic clip that holdds the plastic arm to the disc - be very careful as the wheel will partly drop into the dispenser tray - that's not a problem as you'll remove it later BUT there's a small spring underneath it that in my case flew through the air and took me ssome time to find. Try and see how this spring is fitted 'before' you strip this assembly, it's placed so that the wheel is held lightly anticlockwise. There's a bit of looseness in this assembly and if the spring was not there (or had come loose) the wheel might not come 'round enough to direct water into the fabric conditioner tray. When you have the clip and spring safely put away you can move the arm - note that it has a fork shape which connects it to the wheel. Let the wheel drop into the tray - you may have to turn it 'round a bit from inside but it should drop completely and you can give it a good clean under the tap. BEFORE you remove the wheel look carefully at it's top - the bit that you removed the clip from so you'll remember how to position it when you reassemble.
Putting the above bits back together is a straight reversal - ideally you need about 4 or 5 hands but you 'can' manage it with two - it's a bit fiddly but not difficult.
Incidentally the problem with my machine was that the spring had moved - and was just sitting loosely doing nothing - instead of holding the wheel in the most anticlockwise position - bearing in mind where the programmer had set the linkage at any given time.
Reading thru this quickly it all sounds a bit complicated but looking at the machine it 'should' all make sense.
We've just done a wash - and at the end I checked - and the fabric conditioner tray is empty!!!
Mail me if you get lucky!

seems to be a problem with the filter. was with mine.. one thing i always forget to clean it regularly.
Be careful when open the little hatch thingie , there will be water coming out . so prepare with a bakingtray and kitchen towels. and open it SLOWLY!!! so the water doesnt totally soak the floor.
then clean clogged up filter. at least that solved the problem in my case, hope it works

pull the machine out and put the drain hose into a bowl to empty the water out when you have emptied it try cleaning the pump filter and check the drain system for blockages if that is ok then it looks very much like your door interlock is duff good luck and rate me.....

I have taken out the filter and washed it thoroughly! Also flushed the out pipe to make sure the whole system was clean. This resolved the problem
