Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(and again!)
This is a common problem with many machines.
I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener tray which needs a thorough clean,
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- (probably the second!)

  • 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
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(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

Why is fabric softener still in drawer after cycle?


there is usually a piece of plastic that hangs over the edge of the conditioner drawer that acts like a siphon when it is filled. this sometimes comes off or is lost when the drawer is taken out for cleaning. if you input your make and model on espares, they may have replacement part.
if you cant source one. forget conditioner and buy an all in one washing liquid

Drawer not emptying


Suggest you pull the drawer right out and look for the hole in the bottom of the drawer where the conditioner is meant to drain out.

The top of this hole whould have a removable cover over it. What normally happens is that the inside of this cover gets choked with old conditioner.

Take the cover off and give the whole thing a really thorough clean with hot water and an old toothbrush.

My washing machine isnt accepting fabric conditioner


have you lifted up the conditioner flap on the drawer, you would of seen a long plastic tube sticking up, this tube gets blocked from time to time resulting in the softner not going into the machine. if you have cleaned this tube when you took the drawer out, then the only other cause is the solonoid vavle is the fault. this is easily replaced.

Flashing Active Light and not taking fabric conditioner


1: The flashing wash light usually indicates a problem with the door latch while a flashing rinse/spin light usually indicates a problem with your inlet valve. 2: The cold water inlet has 2 independant outlets. The issue that you are describing indicates that one part of the cold water inlet is not opening to allow water to flow to the proper dispenser port.
