Why the Softener or Bleach drains before washing starts in Samsung Washing Machine?

Last Update Date : Jul 04. 2018

If the Fabric Softener or Bleach is dispensing into the drum before the cycle starts in Samsung Washing Machine, you must have overfilled the dispenser. Both the fabric softener and bleach compartments work using a siphon. A Siphon is a bent tube used to move a liquid over an obstruction to a lower level without pumping. Refer the image below to know the working of a siphon:


(Working of a Siphon)

If the respective compartments are overfilled, the siphoning action occurs immediately, and the fabric softener or bleach is dispensed into the drum. This may cause damage to your clothes.

Be sure to only fill the dispenser to the Max line. Check the pictures below:

Note: WSM takes softener in last rinse cycle. For example - If customer selects 2 rinse cycles then softer will dispense in 2nd rinse.
