Check the outer soap box - Remove the top panel, usually screwed tight at the back of the machine by 2 screws. After removing the panel, you should see the big detergent outer box, remove its top panel and clean the small water holes at its reverse. What happens here is these holes also get blocked and by unblocking these holes you will allow water to get through.
Good Luck

Why is water remaining in the fabric softener drawer?


There is a FLAP which acts to prevent backflow into the fabric softener compartment. It is usually synthetic rubber, and covers the end of a tube (from the fabric softener compartment, and is usually cut at an angle. The flap opens to permit the softener to flow out, but apparently is not 'flapping back' to prevent backflow. Best thing is to check that flap, and possibly it is prevented from 'flapping back' by lint or some other bit of fabric/thread/tissue left in a pocket, &tc.

Fabric softener doesn't leave the dispenser


Take out the drawer and clean the compartment and pipe at the end of the drawer with hot soapy water - washing up liquid works well. Clean all around it. To show this is working OK, put it in the sink and fill up the compartment with water until it is overflowing then stop. The water should drain out of the compartment on its own.

Next, where the drawer fits in the machine clean the water exit above the drawer with a washing up brush. This can appear brown or white depending on your water type. If this is OK try running the machine. If there is still a problem, remove the drawer again and turn off the power at the mains. Use something like a paper clip to poke all the holes in the water dispenser area above the drawer. There are lots of them so some patience might be required. If you live in a hard water area it could be blocked with limescale in which case an application of a descaling mousse or spraty will assist. Once complete, make sure you rinse the drawer area, drawer and put the drawer back in and run the machine on a short cold fill wash cycle. Put some fab con in the drawer to test that the machine drains it correctly. If all is well then there will be no fab con left. If it is still there then you will need to get into the water dispensing area to see what is wrong. Occasionally the mechanism can get jammed, lose a spring or just get broken, in which case it will need replacing.

Fabric softner does not disperse, a smell comes into sink.


Remove the drawer and thoroughly clean out the drawer. They usually have a syphon mechanism which gets blocked. On many, you will find a section of the softener compartment can be removed. Make sure there are no traces of old softener. The eggy smell is due to the enzymes in the detergent not being properly flushed from the machine. Check the waste water pipe is clear of debris and clean out any filters (not all machines have these) - normally under a cover at the front of the machine near the floor. While you have the detergent drawer out, it would be worth cleaning the area as it often gets clogged and covered in detergent or softener, and can block the water feed holes.

After all this cleaning, run the machine on a hot was with no detergents/softeners or laundry in it, to flush it out.

Fabric conditioner drawer


Try cleaning inside the the machine where the soap dispenser drawer fits into. Sometimes this builds up with lots of soap and fabric conditioner residue and stops the conditioner from going through.
Take the drawer back out and look inside where it goes to see if there is a build up of soap etc...
hope this helps

Kenmore front load washer will not dispense fabric softner


I've had this same problem and solved it by removing the detergent/bleach/softener dispenser drawer from the machine and seriously cleaning out all of the "gunk" from the drawer and from inside the drawer area on washer. Sometimes I have had to repeat the cleaning and then the fabric softener begins dispensing again. I have model # 417.43042200 but it may work on all the Kenmore front loading washers.
