Softener slot won't drain.

The spot where you put the softener in won't drain or something, the clothes smell like the softener has been used, but the slot thingy fills up with water and softener particles. What's the problem?

    I have the same problem and I don't even use softner. The slots where the softner and bleach go fill with water and don't drain out.

Where do I put fabric softener?


Most washers have a receptacle you can put the softener in at the beginning. Look for that (usually in the middle of the agitator). Make sure you add the correct amount of water. Otherwise, wait until the rinse water is running to add the softener or you may get spots on your clothes if added directly to dry clothes.

My question is this..why doesnt my clothes smell like fabric softner?? They dont smell at all..like i never put anything in there...and the fabric softner compartment never fully drains of its water what...


The fabric softener may be unscented.

The softener compartment is flushed during the wash cycle to clear it completely, therefore some water remains at the end.

I purchased the Kenmore Elite washer approximately five years ago. I have had no problems with it operating. However, since purchasing this washer I have ruined almost everything white I owned and avoid...


There has been many reports of complaints regarding this problem and it was found out that the gray spots on white clothing are caused by the fabric softener. The Kenmore Elite is a "highly efficient" machine that it uses very minimal amount water when washing and rinsing. The minimal use of water results in the fabric softener not being diluted completely and eventually makes gray spots on white clothing. The ridiculous solution to this problem, as Sears "advised" is not using fabric softener for white clothing. But you may also try putting the fabric softener in a small plastic bowl just enough to hold it and place it inside the machine prior to the final rinse. Using only the suggested amount of detergent and avoiding the use of detergent powder with speckles reduces the possibility spot occurrences in your while clothing.

Hi, I have kenmore washer and after washing my clothes getting some white stains on them. How to solve this problem?


If you are using a liquid fabric softener , then start using dryer sheets instead OR using less softener . Also be sure you are using the correct temp setting for softener " disolvement " . Re-washing the clothes should take out the spots . If you have dryed the clothes , may take several washes to remove the spots .

Water won't drain out from the spots where fabric softener goes


It typically has some residual water after a load. All you need to do is to remove the detergent dispenser and dump the water out. To remove the detergent dispenser, pull it out as far it will go, then look into the detergent slot. There should be a horizontal plastic tab in the back of the detergent slot. Press the left side of the plastic tab and pull the dispenser out of the machine. Then you can dump the water from the bleach and fabric softener slots. Just slide it back into the machine and your good to go. Hope this helps.

Oh angel!
a rose by any other name!

If your clothes smell worse after washing then the machine is full of gunge from all the previous washes. One of the worst things that puts a gluggy deposit inside machines is of all things Softener!
You could try putting a generous two cups of Sugar Soap Concentrate into your machine and filling it with warm water. Then let it stand for 24 hrs, Then start the wash cycle.
This may clear the gunge. If not the only sure remedy is a strip down and degunk and that will cost you a few dollars.

Moldy smelling clothes


First, clean your washer with one of the front load washer cleaners on the market. (Affresh, washer magic, smellywasher cleaner, whirlaway hot tub cleaner, or Tide front load washer cleaner) Use the longest, hottest cycle your washer has, with no clothes.
Second, rewash the smelly clothes with the heavy wash cycle and a second rinse option, using no soap or fabric softener. This will remove the soap and/or fabric softener build up in the clothes which is causing the smell. Third, begin using one to no more than two tablespoons of HE soap per load, and not more than 1 teaspoon full of fabric softener if you use it. This is because top load washers used up to 45 gallons of water per load, and your front load machine is only using about 12 gallons total. If you are washing a load of bath towels (which were only used to dry off your clean body, not wipe up the floor or something like that) they are not really dirty,...... for washing "clean" towels, don't use any soap, and of course never use fabric softener on towels.

Clothes softener does not drain out of the holder


Do your clothes smell funny? Does it take forever for a load to wash? That happened to me and there was a wire loose in the machine somewhere and it would quit mid cycle and never finished a rinse or spin cycle. My fabric softener never drained either!

My washmachine smells horrible. My whole house it starting to smell like it. What do I do??


there is nothing in a washer to smell - just stainless steel, rubber and plastics!
check the following:
are you using liquid detergent? if so after extended use, the machine smells like drains. put on the hottest wash with no clothes and smell will go. revert to using powder.
check there is a water barrier between the drain hose and your main drain. if not, the smell of your sewer will come up thro the drain hose.
is the drain connected to a spigot off the sink trap and do you have a waste disposal unit? these stink and unless you again have a water barrier the smell will come thro the drain hose
