Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be helping you with your question today. Pour water into the softener tray above the max line. Does it siphon out?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes.

If is siphons out that means it not clogged. You have a bad dispenser housing. Remove the drawer and use a tooth brush to clean the holes in the top of the dispenser.

I tried it...even used a flashlight and a toothpick just to make sure but next cycle had the same issue. Any further suggestions?
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 5 years ago.
The only thing you can do is to replace the whole dispenser housing.
