SOURCE: Fabric softener stays in drawre

We just had a tech come out to fix this problem for us. Essentially, the problem is that the fabric softener builds up and gets clogged. He cleaned out a solid hunk of frabric softener gunk, and suggested that we dilute our fabric softener with water to keep this buildup from happening again.

SOURCE: Hard scratchy towels. Have used all wash cycles, and use fabric softener

have you tried just white vinegar as your rinse aid. Do a full cycle of your washing machine using white vinegar instead of detergent, to clean any residue from pipes, and then in the next wash try white vinegar as your rinse aid.

SOURCE: fabric softener dispenser no longer works on my Bosch

Remove soap drawer completely from washer, and thoroughly clean all parts of it, paticularly the conditioner compartment..
Get a piece of stiff wire, and make a right angled bend in the end of it, then poke the wire into all the holes in the top of the soap drawer compartment to clear any possible blockage.
This should solve the prob.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

SOURCE: My bosch nexxt washer will not drain the fabric

Take out the drawer and clean the compartment and pipe at the end of the drawer with hot soapy water - washing up liquid works well. Clean all around it. To show this is working OK, put it in the sink and fill up the compartment with water until it is overflowing then stop. The water should drain out of the compartment on its own.

Next, where the drawer fits in the machine clean the water exit above the drawer with a washing up brush. This can appear brown or white depending on your water type. If this is OK try running the machine. If there is still a problem, remove the drawer again and turn off the power at the mains. Use something like a paper clip to poke all the holes in the water dispenser area above the drawer. There are lots of them so some patience might be required. If you live in a hard water area it could be blocked with limescale in which case an application of a descaling mousse or spraty will assist. Once complete, make sure you rinse the drawer area, drawer and put the drawer back in and run the machine on a short cold fill wash cycle. Put some fab con in the drawer to test that the machine drains it correctly. If all is well then there will be no fab con left. If it is still there then you will need to get into the water dispensing area to see what is wrong. Occasionally the mechanism can get jammed, lose a spring or just get broken, in which case it will need replacing.

Wash in cold water, and use fabric softener as well as dryer sheets when drying at low heat on dryer. To hot of water and to hot o drying will cause this.

Try some Schmetz brand needles, they skip less than any other brand. If that does not solve the problem, you need to have it serviced.

When should u add softener?


Dear seymour,

please rate this solution if it meets ur need else choose fixya.

Fabric softener is one of those things we don’t think much about, but use frequently. How does it work? How is it used? Fabric softener is essentially a chemical cocktail that helps soften the fibers in textiles. It makes them feel less harsh and has anti-soiling and anti-staining properties. With such names as Diethylenetriamine, Aminoethylethanolamine and Triethylenetetramine, these chemicals sound like something out of a science-fiction movie, but they are mostly byproducts of animal fats. Fabric softeners come in two types: liquids and dryer sheets. The liquid softeners are added to the rinse water for each load of clothes. Dryer sheets are paper or sponge-like pieces that are coated with the dry softener and are added to the dryer for every load. Some liquid softeners tout that they will leave clothes brighter and prevent discoloration from chlorine. These claims must, of course, be evaluated by each person.

Fabric softeners are used in any form to help make clothing feel softer and to prevent static cling. Anyone who has unloaded a batch of towels from the dryer in winter knows exactly what static cling is. Dryer sheets lubricate the textile fibers to reduce static electricity generated by the drying process. Liquid softeners serve much the same purpose.
There is a great amount of information about fabric softeners on the Internet, and while browsing, a person will undoubtedly come up on Web sites saying the chemicals in fabric softeners are dangerous and can cause a whole host of illnesses and allergies. There is no doubt that some people are allergic to the chemicals and/or dyes in fabric softener. They can cause rashes or upper respiratory distress. Some manufacturers have started producing dye and fragrance-free liquid fabric softeners in response to this problem. Some small companies also produce a vegetable-based, dye and fragrance-free softener that is biodegradable and less likely to cause allergic reactions. There are also some ways of softening the laundry without using any kind of commercial fabric softener. Vinegar and baking soda soften the fibers naturally. A person can add one-fourth cup baking soda to the load at the beginning of the wash cycle, and then a half-cup of white vinegar during the rinse cycle. Another home recipe suggests diluting 1 cup of glycerin in a gallon of water and using one-half cup of the mixture per load of laundry. Still another method uses three parts water to one part commercial hair conditioner. Fabric softener should only be used with standard fabrics. Fine washables such as linen or silk should not have any kind of fabric softeners used on them, if they are machine washable. The chemicals can destroy the look and feel of a fabric like linen, and dull colors in silk. However, most standard cotton and polyester blends are safe with the use of fabric softener. Dryer sheets are a blessing for socks and towels, since these items seem to be most susceptible to static cling. Liquid fabric softener can also usually be diluted to one-fourth strength in order make it last. There is usually no discernible loss of softness or increase in static cling when the softener is diluted. Each person needs to decide whether using a commercial fabric softener is appropriate. Those with allergies or very sensitive skin may want to consider a home recipe, since they are made of ingredients that are readily available. People also need to remember to keep the fabric softener from their fine or delicate washables, especially linen and silk.

My front loading LG washing machine doesn't seem to wash as well as I had expected. Actually the only things that I have noticed this in is the wash cloths and towels. They are getting a gray dingy look to...


Once the dingy look gets into them, it seems to be impossible to get out. It is caused by using too much soap and / or fabric softener. Remember, your front load LG is using only about 12 gallons of water to wash those towels. Your old machine used as much as 45. This means that all wash loads need to use less soaps and fabric softeners. Use 1 tablespoon of regular HE detergent for standard loads. (only a teaspoon if it is 3X HE) Only a teaspoon of fabric softener when you use it. Which brings me to towels. If washing bathtowels: You are clean and rinsed before you use the towel. The towel is not getting dirty, only soaking up the clean water off your body. Hang them on a towel rack and use them several times before washing, and when you do wash bath towels, most of the time you do not need any detergent, as they are really not dirty. Of course you should know that you never use fabric softener on loads of towels. Now, back to the dingyness. The dingy stuff is residual soap / fabric softener in the fabric, which once machine dried seems to be impossible to remove. If they are white towels, make sure to use liquid bleach and you might try to use a little Mrs. Stewart's concentrated liquid blueing in the fabric softener dispenser to see if if might help. Most likely you will have to try a few new towels, washing with no soap or fabric softener when laundered.
Please don't rate this, as it is really just informational, not what most people would call a solution, and any rating other than FixYa drops my score.

Note: If you wash some previously washed towel, using no soap, you should not see any soap suds in the washer. If you do, you are seeing soap left over from the previous washing of the towels or soap from build up on the outer washer tub. Use Whirlaway or AhFresh on tub clean cycle or at least the longest hottest cycle you have, and start using the correct amount of laundry additives. (also will help prevent odor issues)

Continuous rinsing


Put 2 tablespoons of oil into the water at the bottom of the dishwasher it will help break up the suds. Sprinkle as well ordinary table salt liberally across the suds to disperse them. Try to drain the unit as much as possible, soaking up any residual water or suds with a dry towel. Let the machine fill again, and repeat the process if necessary. Good luck !
