SOURCE: My Electrolux front load washer won’t release the fluids from the detergent dispenser. I’ve cleaned it thoroughly and there is nothing blocking it. What could it be the issue?

if you checked to make sure the cup is working and all you have to do is pull out the dispenser,add water,if it siphons the water from the cup then you might have a bad water valve,you can try to start the washer just on cold water,if it fills slowly and you can hear the water trickling in the valve is bad,now you have to see if it's the washer valve or house valve,shut off the house water supply,remove the hoses you can put a mark on one of the hoses and on the washer so you don't mix them up when you put them back on,now stick the hoses in a bucket and turn the water on,if it comes out strong you know it's the washer valve that's bad.so check the cup all it does is fill up and after it fills so much, the fluid goes up the tube in the cup and out into the other cup,if it does that then most likely the water isn't getting into the cup to do this.you can go here to see how it works,hope this helps you out and your dispenser might be different from this one but they all work the same way
just make sure the water passes through the tube in the cup

How to place spring back in place defined detergent dispenser

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!
Based off the information you have provided the spring on your Frigidaire washer came off in your hand and you would like to replace it. Typically, if the spring has come out of the dispenser you may need to replace the whole dispenser. I would recommend pulling out the drawer to see if any parts have been become cracked or broken. In order to purchase the correct parts you should contact the manufacturer. I hope this helps. -Matt


Electrolux 1292 softener compartment not dispensing after few years

Good Morning Sandie,

I understand that you are having trouble with the softener dispenser not dispensing on your Electrolux washer. I suggest running a System-clean cycle on your washer, as well as taking out the dispenser drawer and taking the dispenser compartments out and cleaning them. It might be that the softener has built up inside the dispenser drawer. If that does not work, reset your appliance by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. If you are still noticing the softener not dispensing, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Electrolux washing machine will not dispense fabric softener

Hello Dawn, I am happy to assist you!

Based on the symptoms you are describing, it sounds like the siphoning mechanism or water valve is clogged up. Scum will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into your washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. Try removing the soap dispenser drawer and the insert in the dispenser as well for cleaning. Reinsert the drawer once it is clean and dry.

If the abovementioned tips do not resolve your issue, I would recommend having a service technician to accurately diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.

Best regards!

Dispenser drawer popping open during operation. model w4842

Marty -
The drawer pops open when the water is intially turned on to the machine. The reseaon is the spring tenion on the flap at the back of the drawer. To fix the problem remove the drawer - locate the spring on the back side - carefully remove the spring and using needle nose pliers squeeze the spring ends together - this will cause the spring to relax a bit - reinstall and test.
Hope this helps

Electrolux frontloader washer detergent drawer won't stay shut

Hello royal37 - Hi - The dispenser drawer could either be cracked or have a broken latch due to interference between the drawer front and top panel. Contact a professional to move forward accurately and might possibly need to order a service kit (PN: 137146000/part number may be different depending on your model number).


When pushing the soap dispenser drawer it does not spring open any longer. Is there a way to fix this?

Re: Soap dispenser door not opening properly...(in case you still need to know)

You might want to use a small mirror (and flashlight) to see where the the spring assembly fits. Turn the rod facing towards you with the flat side up. It attaches at the rear, top left corner, near a small opening on the back wall (shaped liked the assembly). Fits into the "grooves". Apply enough pressure and you will feel it snap into place.

My Frigidaire front load washer will not dispense the fabric softner during cycle.

Clean the dispenser drawer if water is introduced into the fabric softener cavity but does not dispense. Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops and push down the release tab marked "PUSH" and then pull the dispenser out completely.

Lift the dispenser drawer cover and clean the tubes both in the dispenser drawer and the cover.

Turn the drawer over then release the conveyor from the tabs and lift it off. Clean the conveyor and the drawer thoroughly.

Snap the conveyor into the tabs back into position and then reinstall the dispenser cover making sure the tubes are properly seated.

Slide the dispenser drawer back into the drawer opening while pushing down the part marked "PUSH".

Let us know if the fabric softener dispenser still does not dispense while both the detergent and bleach dispensers dispense.

Detergent dispenser clogged-Kenmore 90 series washer

You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.


Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.
