If water is being dispensed from both sides of the detergent tray, dismantle washing machine and remove top plate of the detergent tray and clean thoroughly. Water overflows from both sides during the rinse cycle to add softener to the rinse. On our washing machine it was blocked. During the service it was changed but can be washed out to solve problem.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine but following are my general guidance notes for front loaders which normally have just one drawer. You MAY be able to use the same principle to check yours. I hope so ;-0)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A quick way to find out which tray is which is to pull the detergent drawer out just so that you can see into it. Start a pre-wash and see where the water runs in, then advance to the main wash and observe. Finally start a rinse cycle and where the water goes in is where the conditioner/softener goes.
In a few cases I have come across the pre-wash tray shares with the conditioner/softener part but the pre-wash powder goes in the front and the softener in the back.
Cheers,
John C

The fabric softner chamber seems to be clogged because after a wash it is full of water.


The fabric softener chamber is likely full of crud and or mildew.
  1. Pull out the detergent / softener tray (press down on the tab in the back to get it all the way out). Take it and wash it as well as you can.
  2. Now, pull the washer out enough that you can get to the back of the machine.
  3. Unplug the washer!
  4. Remove the four screws holding the plastic tabs (at the top) on the rear of the machine.
  5. You should now be able to remove the top cover of the machine - slide it back and then up.
  6. There are four small hoses connected to the back of the detergent tray, and one large hose.
  7. Take a marker / tape / etc. and label these hoses 1,2,3,4 - write the corresponding number on the top of the detergent tray so you will know where to hook them back up!
  8. Using pliers, squeeze the tabs on the small clamps to loosen them enough to pull them back about an inch on the small hoses.
  9. Pull the hoses off, gently.
  10. Use a phillips head screwdriver to loosen the clamp on the large black hose. Pull it off.
  11. You may want to loosen the other end of this large black hose and remove the hose for cleaning. Mine was nasty.
  12. There is a black bundle of wires snapped into the sides of the detergent tray. Take this bundle out of the clips so it hangs loose.
  13. Remove the two screws from the front of the detergent tray. These are on either side of the opening and are usually hidden by the detergent drawer.
  14. Now, you should be able to slide the entire fabric softener tray back and out of the machine.
  15. The tray comes apart into two pieces - gently pry the tabs on the sides to separate them.
  16. Clean everything! If anything is too nasty / clogged to clean, buy a replacement part.
  17. Reverse steps to reassemble and good luck!

Siemens xlm 1600 leaving scum type marks on washing


Had the same problem with our Siemens XLm1600. The problem is that you are using washing LIQUID.

Change to a powder (particularly a biological one) and you'll be ok...

Fabric Softener remains after load done


You should make sure that your inlet to the machine flows with rather good pressure. I tell u this for your soft tray requires water, also your rinse.
