Having your washer begin to malfunction and not dispense the fabric softener can be very frustrating. I did a broad search and provided a link to a similar question on our site. I would suggest that you provide a little more information such as the make and complete model number of your product, so your expert will be able to provide you with the best possible answer.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your washer. There were two styles of fabric softener dispensers used on this washer. You might have one that is located on top of the agitator. When the washer drains and spins the softener is slung out over the sides of the dispenser. If it doesn't then the softener is to thick or the washer is not spinning fast enough. You might have a regular dispenser that adds flush water during the cycle to wash the softener out. If this fails then usually it is because of the softener being to thick. Cleaning with hot water is usually all that is needed. If you could please reply with your model number, I can then provide some additional information. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for replying with your model number. This model has a dispenser drawer with a dispenser tube to release the fabric softener into the tub. The most common problem with a dispenser is that the drawer or the tube can become clogged over a period of time. This is something that you will need to clean out. Pull the dispenser drawer completely out and take it over to the sink to clean it out. Then fill the fabric dispenser section with water to see if it drains out correctly. If it does, then you will need to pour HOT water into the dispenser tube. It will take a few minutes to clean out anything that may be in there. Then under a normal cycle to pull the remain water through the tube. If this does not work the problem will be with either the dispenser itself, or the control board. For these I would suggest that you have a technician come out an repair them, because they can be very complicated. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
