Remove the entire dispenser from the machine by pushing down on the catch usually rear left side. Take out the divider from the bleach and fabric softener and clean as much goo as you can get our of there using a toothpick or small screwdriver. Check the tube sections and clean completely. Test by putting it back together and slowly pouring water in the dispenser and it should fill then start draining once the level gets high enough. Stop filling and if level it should empty itself out.
You can help prevent this by diluting the softener in the dispenser without filling to the max.

    I have already taken it completely apart and scrubbed the heck out it. Top, bottom all nocks and crannies. I also crammed my arm in the washing drawer space and cleaned the dickens out of it too. After all of that I turned it to a hot water cycle and ran it through without any clothes. I thought that should have cured the problem so I did a load of clothes ..... and all be danged the softner dispenser still had all the softner in it at the end of that load. hmmmmm Got any other ideas?

    Try the extra rinse cycle and make sure you don't have to select fabric softener on the console.
    You may have a defect in the dispenser. Have you tried any diagnostic tests? Post your model number and I can look up the model and see if that helps. Make sure both supply water lines are fully on.

My front load washer will not empty out the fabric softner. I have taken out the drawer & cleaned it. It will empty out the laundry soap, but not the fabric softner


I have the same problem with mine. I found that some fabric softners worked better than others. I found Downy the worst, when i switched the problem seems to stop once i cleaned out the drawer

Water collects in the fabric softner dispenser during in the washing and doesn't drain. We have to pour it out vbefroe washing the next load.


Take the dispenser out the washer and clean it very good.
Pull the caps off and make sure no fabric softner is hanging around the hole. The unit uses a siphon effect to drain the compartments.
It's normal to have some water left over tho. Just not full of water.

FABRIC SOFTNER DOES NOT DISPENCE


Check to make sure the litle cups are set in place correctly and also make sure they are not blocked with hard fabric softner. A quick test: pour water directly into the fabric sofnter cup and fill it up,IF it siphons out, you will need a new inlet valve for that unit. The inlet valve has soliniods on it for the bleach & fabric softner.

Good Luck!
