Maytag made a washer with the dispenser valve in the rear of tub and compartments in the front corners of the tub with chutes in the lid to transfer the water from the dispenser to the compartments. I thought the dispenser valve went out but it was the chutes in the lid were stopped up from hard water. I hooked tubing little bigger than icemaker tubing to the dispenser and through the chutes in the lid to get the water to the front corner compartments on washer. I did wash two or three loads to narrow it down to that. first wash installed new dispenser still did dispense solfner. second wash hooked jumper wire to dispenser and pluged it in at rinse cycle still did not dispense solfner. than I came up with the tubes. FYI I did take all compartment off of washer and ran hot water through them in a bath tub I just did not run a brush through the chutes in lid. When they made the washer in 95 very bad ideal.
