Detergent and/or Fabric Softener is left in the drawer, What should I do?

Last Update Date : Apr 05. 2018

For models WA406DJHDWR, WA456DRHDWR, WA5471ABW and WA5471ABP Washing Machines, you must use HE (High Efficiency) Detergent.

The washer's automatic dispenser may need to be cleaned periodically to eliminate traces of liquid detergent and fabric softener can solidify in the drawer and drawer compartment or inside the plastic siphon tubes. This build-up can restrict the detergent additives from entering the tub properly.

Symptoms of laundry additive build-up include:
■ Detergent / Fabric Softener does not dispense
■ Excessive water remains in the detergent / softener compartments after cycle finishes
You will need a small non-abrasive brush and warm water.

1 Pull the dispenser drawer straight back until it stops.
