SOURCE: Fabric Sofner won't dispense
hi there remove the soap drawer then remove the cover over the softener compartment you will more than likely find a blockage in the cover siphon or the down tube on the drawer

Pull the drawer out as far as it will come and then grasping it firmly, give it a good tug towards you, this will free the drawer to enable you to thoroughly clean every piece of it, particularly the conditioner parts of it.
Get a piece of wire with a bend on the end, and poke it in to all the holes in the top of the dispenser compartment, this will clera any blockages there.
Plz rate my solution, and feel free to leave any comment.

SOURCE: fabric softner does not empty
I had a similar problem and removed the complete dispenser drawer and washed it in with hot water. The small inner cups for the fabric softener and bleach should be removed and the hot water directed into the small "stand pipes" on the back side of the covers. It appears the fluids in the cups are siphoned out and if the pipes are clogged at the bottom there will be no flow. Also is the plate is not fully seated, the siphon effect is will not work.
Also, my wife said she does not use the cheaper brands of fabric softener anymore because we think that might have caused some of the clogging.
As a side note, if you remove the top of the washer, there is an adjustable dial where you can fine tune the amount of liquid dispenced. You can try adjusting that too. I think my final fix was to clean the back side of the face plates inside the dispenser and ensure they are fully seated to allow the proper siphon effect.

SOURCE: Cleaning agent placement
From left to right as you see.
1 This is for your frontloader soap powder or other detergent.
2 Fabric conditioner or softener. If this is too thick, mix with water to prevent clogging.
3 Detergent for soaking agent. I dont see 'bleach' anywhere
There is an panel, front bottom right which holds your pump filter, unscrew to clean out. But wait. Plug off the mains.
You will see a hose on the left, this is if your water in the tub cannot drain, you can drain it here. Your tub can hold upto 20 litres/4.4 gals.so have a suitable container to collect; carefully remove cap to drain out. Reason why it doesn't drain is because there is a block in your pump (right side) which you must clear.
To keep your pump from probs (a tip which you seldom see) empty all pockets of clothes before putting into machine. I have a non electronic Philco which i dont remember cleaning with hotwash or anything, 10years +
For exteriors do not use solvents or steel wool. Only hot soapy water with a mild non-abrasive cleaning agent, dry with soft towel.
Above should be useful. Pl rate.............

You can get all of Whirlpools user guides here:
http://www.whirlpool.co.uk/app.cnt/whr/en_GB/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001/ifu/home Generally the one one the left - is for pre-wash (if clothes really soiled), the middle one is for powder (if you use it) and the last one is for softener or bleach.
I just use liquitabs - which go directly into the drum, and fabric softender.
