oh oh oh!! I have a question too!!!
My washing machine has the agitator in the middle, and at the top of that is the fabrid softener dispenser. Somehow this dispenser has gotten clogged so it no longer drains properly during the wash. It seems like it's clogged with fabric softener residue and lint of various types. I cn clean the outside of the dispenser but not the inside, or wherever it is clogged, and hven't been able to figure out how to take it off to clean it.
I DID fill it wil vinegar during a couple of wash cycles, which helped slightly, but it's still pretty gummed up and unuseable. Any advice? I have never heard of this happening before!
