How to you clean a fabric softener dispenser in a 10 year old Whirlpool clothes washer?
By Grandma J12/29/2010
I have a 10 year old Maytag too. I take a bucket with lots of hot sudsy water, start pouring it quickly into the dispenser. Then take a wet washcloth and rub around the inside. Keep doing this a couple times THEN take a dry washrag which helps remove the final. You should clean this often, getting the gunk off. As you fill your washer with water before adding the clothes, this can be done, then it runs into the washer and just wash!
How do I clean the Downy dispenser in a front load washer?

Someone recently gave me an Amana washer. I'm not sure how old it is, but when I got it the fabric softener dispenser was gunky looking and nasty. I don't know how to go about cleaning it. How do I clean this?
I have a washer and dryer I just purchased from a good friend. They're both very clean and don't have a lot of use. But the washer has a removable fabric softener "bowl" that fits in the middle of the agitator.
To make a long story short the bowl/cup that's removable had about 1/8th of a inch of softener buildup, along with the bottom of the agitator tower. Nothing seems to cut this stuff. It's like wheel bearing grease.

I have a Kenmore washing machine, and the fabric dispenser is either clogged or broken. Does anyone know how to clean these. I can't get the fabric softener out of the dispenser.
How do I disassemble the fabric softener cup on a 10 year old Kenmore washing machine? It needs cleaning out.
