Why is my fabric conditioner drawer full of water?

What causes water to be left? This tube often gets blocked by the fabric softener itself. If you remove the dispenser drawer and take off the cap or device you can give the whole thing a good clean out. To test the function, hold the soap drawer under a tap and allow water to fill the fabric compartment to overflowing.

Also to know is, how do I unclog my fabric softener dispenser?

Add enough warm water to cover the dispenser. Mix in a tablespoon or two of liquid laundry soap, swirling it into the water with your hand. Allow the dispenser to soak for 10 minutes or so, touching the fabric softener buildup to see if it has loosened. If not, soak the dispenser for another 20 minutes.

why is my washing machine not taking in fabric conditioner? If your machine fails to remove the fabric conditioner from the appropriate compartment, it is likely there is a blockage within the detergent dispenser itself. We recommend you remove the detergent dispenser drawer and clean using hot soapy water to remove any blockages and re-try the wash process.

Beside above, why does my fabric softener not drain?

* Clean the washer detergent drawer periodically with a soft cloth to avoid detergent buildup. Check the inlet hose screens for a blockage. If washer is not getting enough water pressure, the fabric softener will not drain. * Use a pair of needle nose pliers or a suitable tool to remove the filters.

How do you remove fabric softener build up?

If you discover blue streaks on clothes as they come out of the washing machine, simply place the clothes back in the washer with no detergent or fabric softener and add one cup of distilled white vinegar to the wash water. Let the clothes go through a full wash/rinse cycle and the stains should be gone.
