SOURCE: Water in bleach/fabric softne compartment

Purchased the duet washer and dryer sept 2004..have had the same problem with water staying in the compartments. while under warranty had to place 2 service calls..the last tech order a new bleach compartment...that helped for a few months, but back to the same problem with having to pull entire container out and empty..i do remember the tech saying that whirlpool duet was first introduced in germany...then the united states...they have had the same problem...and that whirlpool is awhere of it, but nothing can be done about...except keep emptying compartment when it fills with water...our neighbor bought a duet washer last fall...no problems like we are having..whirlpool must of solved that issue with the newer versions.... paying $1000.00 for a washer and having to empty the compartment everytime doesn't make sense to me.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: fabric softner does not empty

I had a similar problem and removed the complete dispenser drawer and washed it in with hot water. The small inner cups for the fabric softener and bleach should be removed and the hot water directed into the small "stand pipes" on the back side of the covers. It appears the fluids in the cups are siphoned out and if the pipes are clogged at the bottom there will be no flow. Also is the plate is not fully seated, the siphon effect is will not work.
Also, my wife said she does not use the cheaper brands of fabric softener anymore because we think that might have caused some of the clogging.

As a side note, if you remove the top of the washer, there is an adjustable dial where you can fine tune the amount of liquid dispenced. You can try adjusting that too. I think my final fix was to clean the back side of the face plates inside the dispenser and ensure they are fully seated to allow the proper siphon effect.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

Try pulling out the soap / softener drawer completely from the Machine and thorough cleaning all the parts. The little siphon plastic pipes get blocked and cause this on my Hotpoint.

When putting softner in after loading clothes, the fabric softner runs out onto clothes before washing cycle begins

The part that puts softner in at the right time might be stuck open or broke. Have it looked at or see if you can find the problem.

FTF530FS Front Load washing machine. Clothes smell.

all front load washers have the problem. Mold and a build up or dirt and soap and fabric softner cause s old musty smell. The low water use makes the machine dirty and build up inside. Run a few Hot water washes with out clothing, Run it empty ,(run your hot water neer your washer to get the cold water out of the house pipes) hot water and pour bleach in side, 2 or more cups. Keep doing it. When your not using washer leave the door open so air can get inside. Hot wash,es with bleach will keep it clean, also dont use fab softner.

Front load washers seal up tight with door closed. This causes the smell. Leave the door open in between loads.

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.

LE and E6 Error Codes on LG Top-Loader I got an LE error code on my LG top-loading washer model #WT5070CW. Tried to reset it a couple of times, but it kept coming back. I understand that this code indicates that the motor is locked because the load is too heavy or any one of a number of other possible reasons related to the motor, rotor, etc.. I emptied the load and the error kept coming back, so I ruled out the load size as an issue. I turned the unit on it's side removed/inspected the rotor, which looked fine. I noticed the three screws that attach the Brake Actuator to the Drive Shaft and Shifter Assembly had somehow come loose, fell out and went missing, and the plastic Brake Actuator part had been cracked. I assume this was the cause of the error, and replaced this part with a new one. I also needed to secure this part with some larger screws, since the originally sized screws had worn out the threads where they were screwed in. I also looked over the wiring and didn't see any damage or wear. Next, I removed the stator and replaced the hall sensor with a new one just in case there may have been an issue with that part. However, when I reassembled everything and tested the washer, the drum still doesn't start to spin, and after a few moments, I get the LE code. Finally, I also changed the Washer Shifter / Coupling part, since I thought it may have been a little worn, in the hopes that that would solve the issue. When I restarted the machine, I then got an E6 error code. (Now, I'm not sure if I'm even past the LE error, or whether I have two errors at the same time.) I see the guidance online recommends looking for paper clips or coins stuck inside the washer tub, but there's definitely nothing like that. I'm reluctant to order more new parts as may be recommended in line with this error (clutch, drive shaft, etc.), and would welcome any guidance or suggestions on all of this. I've also been "agitating" my significant other by caving in to her wishes and calling a technician or ordering a new washer. Any suggestions as to what else I should be looking out for, which may be causing this issue, and anything else I can do to troubleshoot this issue? Thx in advance.
