LG Washer Softener Dispenser Issues: A Lesson in Pythagorean Cup EffectBrand: LG
A recent client complaint involved issues with the LG washer fabric softener dispenser. Specifically, the softener was not dispensing into the drum but remained in the detergent drawer. The detergent drawer in washing machines is designed with a feature akin to a Pythagorean cup. When pouring detergent or softener into the designated compartment, users engage with a column that indicates the maximum fill level. Within this column, there is a crucial tube, collectively creating the Pythagorean cup effect. Essentially, unless the liquid surpasses the indicated level, it will not flow into the machine’s drum. To facilitate this, an overflow of water must exceed the marked level, causing a mix of water and softener to spill into the washing machine drum.
In this specific instance, an in-depth examination was necessary due to an obstruction in the essential tube. Upon closer inspection, the technician uncovered a pervasive issue— the softener dispenser was entirely infested with mold. Mold tends to flourish in detergent and softener drawers, thriving on residual substances. It is recommended that users routinely clean these compartments with a brush and bleach to deter mold growth. Unfortunately, it seems the client may not have been aware of this maintenance necessity, permitting mold to proliferate and eventually impede the crucial tube, commonly referred to as the siphon.
