When I first started using the machine, I would fill the fabric softner and at the end of the full cycle the fabric softner and detergent spots would be empty. Now at the end of a full cycle when I try to do the next load of laundry the fabric softner spot is full of water. Why?

Hello, Yes the detergent and softener will stay in the dispenser drawer until the correct time for them to be dispensed. The detergent is dispensed during the main wash cycle and the softener will not dispense until the rinse cycle
Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Sounds like the softner valve is stuck open. You would have to open the top and start the cycle and see if the softner valve is getting power to it. If its not and water is comming through it is stuck open and needs to be replaced. If it is getting 120volts to it the control board would have to be replaced.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
Remove drawer/ look inside opening of washer ( at the top of opening inside) there is small little holes for the water to come through to fill the fabric softner spot and also bleach spot and detrgent spot. Holes may be pluged use a old tooth bush or some item to clean holes..Hope that helps thanks for voting.
Hi Residue builds up inside of washing machines for all sorts of reasons. Many detergents and fabric softeners can leave filmy layers behind. Hard water can cause spotting on both plastic and metal thus ending up with spots on your washing, how to resolve this follow the instructions, 1, use vinegar a bottle and place your machine on the hottest wash cycle and let it run through a full cycle, when finished use a paper towel with vinegar to clean the inside, set machine on a rinse cycle, this may need to be repeated but will solve it, also use gels and liquids instead of powders and descale etc.
make sure you delute it with water. yes fabric softner will start to stain your clothes if you use too much of it. I would recomend stop useing it for a while. so you can clean the washer out. There is a product called Washer magic or Affresh that cleans out residues built up in your washer. or you can just run several loads of HOT water and bleach to clean it out. The hot water will melt the left over fabric softner in your washer. Fabric softner is kind of like hardend bacon fat thats what it looks like in your washer after time and if you do not clean your washer it builds up and builds up.
Also i do recomend alternating liquid detergent and powdered detergent. The reason why is powder leaves a residue that liquid takes away and vise versa. try this and let me know how it goes
Problem will be the use of fabric softner or too much detergent. The stain you are seeing is generally to animal fat that is present in fabric softner, Best solution is to cut back on the amount of softner being used, same with powder.
