Fabric Softener Dispenser Won't Drain

I have a Bosch Nexxt Essence Front Loader. I have odor and mildew issues that I have "sort of" been able to control. My problem now is that, although I do not use softener in my washer, the dispenser is filled with water and I can't figure out how to drain it.


I am afraid it is going to get stagnant, hence yet another avenue for odor and mildew. Anyone know how I can drain it? There is nothing about it in the manual.

Try some vinegar in the dispenser. This worked really great for me.

Good luck.

White vinegar "unclogged" my dispenser, although it took a few attempts.

With the machine unplugged can you feel around for a drain hole in the dispenser? Sometimes hard water deposits will build up. Just a guess.

Try contacting the store where the dryer was purchased? Also look up the maker and give them a call. Don't forget all serial numbers.
