How do I clean a clogged fabric softener dispenser that is in my washing machine?
By Janet from Pittsburgh, PA
How do I unclog the fabric softener dispenser on my Frigidaire Affinity washing machine?
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!
You states, to unclog a detergent softener in washer machine, use "Vinegar. Warm some up in the microwave, put in the dispenser, let sit, then do a load of towels..." You get to mention where in the dispenser should you place the vinegar. The dispenser is divided into three compartments (detergent, softener and bleach).

Try using vinegar and baking soda or denture tablets in bit of water. (10/31/2007)
Hot water and vinegar run through it. (11/01/2007)
Heat vinegar in the microwave to get hot, then use it full strength. (11/02/2007)
