Aside from the other solutions i did removed the dispenser tray and cleaned it with spray bleach and a brush as well as inside the dispenser cavity in the wash machine and 1/2 a q-tip in the holes above. not much change. then i filled the fabric softener holder with bleach on hot, quick cycle twice, and it works! i plan to do this periodically as well as keeping both the door and tray open after each cycle.

Fabric softener is to slow mix with rinse water in the rinse cycle... check the cold water supply line for a clogged screen or a clogged dispenser box cover... hope it helps

SOURCE: fabric softner

Remove the dispenser tray. Inspect the area just above the fabric softener portion of the dispenser. There should be a series of holes where water feeds into the tray during the rinse cycle. Sometimes these holes become clogged with fabric softener residue. If the holes are clogged, water will never dispense the fabric softener out and it will stay in the tray. If you take some cotton swabs and meticulously clean all the holes out, I bet your problem will go away. Let me know if this was helpful to you.

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: water in the fabric softner compartment after wash cycle

You need to poke all the holes clear in the top of the dispenser housing with a piece of wire or similar.
This should solve the problem.

Fabric softner not dispensing, fabric softner remains in drawer and does not diepsne during wash cycle


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to make sure your hose is cleaned on the bottom of the dispenser. It is probably clogged.

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 will not go into the washing machine,it stays in the fabric softner dispenser during the entire wash cycle, thanks for your help


Can't help ya, as mine is doing the same thing. Not so much none of it, but there is always some left over in the f.s. compartment. I have tried adding water, but there is still some left over. It dries, and gets gummy. Every so often, I remove the drawer and clean it off.

The fabric softner release has stopped working


Most likely the fabric soft dispenser is clogged . this happens when you wash alot in cold water the left over fabric softner get very pasty and can clog it up. You can try filling the dispenser with hot water and run a cycle with hot water this should unclog the dispenser .

Water Softner Dispense wont empty - Kenmore Elite Quiet Pak 4 HE3t


I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.
