I would be very grateful for any feed back

Hiya
it sounds like your cold water inlet valve is in need of replacing, as its this that fills the fab conditioner compartment. it is quite a common fault and cheap to replace, even with minimal diy skills you should be able to do this yourself and save the money an engineer would have charged.

hope this helps

please dont forget to rate the helpfulness of this reply thanks kj

Fabric softner does not empty into washer during rinse cycle


Hi not sure how these work as we dont have them in the UK. With UK machines the soap and fabric softner are put into a drawer that pulls out the front of the machine. When softner and soap arnt going into machine properly we take drawer out and wash it in warm water, you usually find a lot of gunk built up blocking it, perhaps you have a similar problem. Hope this helps

Fabric softner still in draw when wash finished


There is a blockage in the dispenser that is causing the prob.
Remove drawer from dispenser, and thoroughly clean every part of it, taking all the pieces out to do it.
To test it is working, put it back together, and before you put it back in, fill the conditioner compartment with water until it starts to overflow, turn water off, and the remaining water should continue to run out, until it is empty, if it does not , then it is still blocked.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Fabric softner part


Hello,
The machine will work fine without the fab softner piece. A new one can be ordered and you will be able to replace the broken one.
Any other questions please ask.

Thanks,

Water remains in fabric softner compartment


Is the softener entering the machine; that is at the appropriate time? You can take a peep at this time, if possible. If it is water it is okay; this is just the remaining water. The softener is dissolved with water and flushed into the machine.
