He is right the Jets are probl stoped up with mold,
you need to take drawer out look to top of machine where water comes into drawer to dispense to your detergetnt, and see if their is mold, if so take squirt bottel full of bleach and squirt it up on the mold and let sit a while and then take tooth brush and scrub off as good as possible, run one cup bleach in machine with out any clothes . on hot cycle. do this 2 times see if this helps .

thanks

Take off the top of the front loader, topfrontleft is the dispenser, there is a movable part that was incrusted and unablble to freely move, clean off parts, little water will do, the movavable piece should move back to the roman numeral one, it is spring loaded, put top back on, done.

I have a front loading Kenmore washer and when i put liquid detergent and fabric softener, the liquid flows into the machine - should the detergent and fabric softerner remain in their compartements until...


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

The fabric softner is not draining during the cycle


Normally caused by undissolved soap residue. Switch off machine from mains, Remove detergent drawer from washing machine, there might be a small plastic clip that need to be levered by hand before the drawer can come out completely. Soak detergent drawer in a tub of water, rinse under tap and wash thoroughly until all soap residue has been washed away. Replace drawer.

Remove the drawer by pushing the tab at the top of the drawer and pull it out and check for an obstruction. They regualarly plug up with gummy fabric softenener. Try washing out with hot water and reinstall

Dispenser tray removal


hi, nikoltheis! i'm not sure if we have exactly the same model, but it should be pretty close. here's what my user's manual says:

Detergent and fabric softner may build up in the dispenser drawer. Residue should be removed once or twice a month

- Remove the drawer by first sliding the safety latch to the right, then pulling the drawer out until it stops.

- Reach back into the left rear corner or the drawer cavity and press down firmly on the lock tab (left rear portion of the drawer). Pull out the drawer.

- Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softner compartments.

- Rinse the drawer and inserts with hot tap water to remove traces of accumulated powders and liquids. Large amounts of fabric softner residue may indicate improper dilution or that more frequent cleaning is required.

- To clean the drawer opening (the empty area left behind when you remove the drawer) use a small brush to clean the recess. Remove all the residue from the upper and lower parts of the recess. (The picture shows this being done with a tooth brush.)

- Replace the insert pressing "X" to lock it in place. Return the dispenser drawer.

Good luck!

hi there remove the soap drawer then remove the cover over the softener compartment you will more than likely find a blockage in the cover siphon or the down tube on the drawer

Fabric softner leakage


By opening upper machine's cover you will have an access to the detergent/softner drawer. Look for the place the water leaks from. Good luck !!
