How do I clean a clogged fabric softener dispenser that is in my washing machine?
By Janet from Pittsburgh, PA
Is it the removal type that sits on top of the agitator? If so, I would remove it and soak it in hot vinegar. If it doesn't come off, I would pour hot vinegar in it until it is clean.
Mine gets like that and I have to pull the drawer right out of the machine. Have you done that or are you trying to clean it when it's in?

There was a similar question asked here, and it's the same answer I would have given. Vinegar. Warm some up in the microwave, put in the dispenser, let sit, then do a load of towels, use the vinegar instead of softener (shouldn't use softener on towels anyway, it cuts down on their soaking ability) and should be clean!
