We had the same problem with the bleach dispenser. It was under warranty so Lowe's sent a repairman that replaced some part in the control panel that he said was faulty on this model. He also said to only use 1-2 Tablespoons of HE detergent and leave the door open. Also dilute any softeners before adding them.

Fabric softener does not get dispensed into wash on my Bosch Nexxt 500.


Hi emily446,

Take out your Tray from the drawer (Usually un-clips on the sides or top)

Then clean the holes inside the drawer at the roof. There will be small holes, clean these with either ear-buds or toothpicks. These holes get clogged quite often, and cleaning them will allow water through to the machine again.

Also clean the tray, especially near the hole at the back where the fabric softener gets siphoned through.

Kind Regards

Some water backs up in the softener dispenser??


Service was here today and tilted the machine backward about 2-4 degrees. This solved the problem. Now fabric dispenser fully empties. Since the machine is 2.5 year old it is possible that over time it settled. I think though it is more likely the cold water dual inlet solenoid that is a bit constricted. If this fix does not last I will change it.

Fabric softner dispenser


take the soap dispenser drawer out and clean the drawer and the underneath the drawer, then clean the inside of the machine where the drawer fits into to. It could be caused by a build up of soap.

My Washer STINKS!!!


Wipe out the door (inside the door-pull the rubber back with a javex cloth or something all around the ring). Buy Affresh.........do three loads on the hottest cycle (still wiping all the **** out after each wash) each with an Affresh tablet. If you can't get it......pour a cup of Javex in the bleach dispenser and do as above.

Good luck!

Bosh washer won't dispense softener. cleaned the tray and tested it by filling with water and it drained completly out, so i know its not clogged. washed another load and softener still there at end of...


I had the same problem. I went to www.justanswer.com and asked the same question as you. I have copied my questions and answers into this reply. My Bosch Nexxt 500 Series washer has stopped dispensing fabric Sent to Appliance Experts 10/25/2009 at 3:24 PM My Bosch Nexxt 500 Series washer has stopped dispensing fabric softener; I also find water in the softener dispenser cup (little cup that pops out for washing - has two sides, one for softener and the other for bleach) after every load. I have tried soaking and cleaning the cup with a brush as the manual indicates with no changes; water still standing. I removed the dispenser and filled it with water. The water didn't run out until I angled the end with the drain hole slightly down. Then the water came out through the drain hole fine. I thought maybe I hadn't cleaned it properly and bought a new dispenser assembly; this is a big part with the dispensers for detergent, softener, and bleach. I replaced my softener dispenser cup with the new one. Same problem. Help.

Optional Information:
Make: Bosch Nexxt 500 Series
Model: WFMC3301UC

Already Tried:
I stated my case in my question, but I did disassemble the dispenser cup. There is no blockage. It looks just like the new dispenser cup in the new assembly I bought. I also have only ran bleach through the detergent dispenser 2 times in 3 years.
Status: Awaiting Expert Reply Value: $28 Answer 10/25/2009 at 3:26 PM (2 minutes and 40 seconds later) if the dispenser is clean, then you need to replace your cold water electronic water valve. This water valve has 2 solenoids. Once for the softner and one to fill the tub. The solenoid that fills the tub can be working normally while the softner solenoid will fail to open as far as it needs and will either not send water into the softner compartment at all, or will only fill very slowly leaving diluted softner in the compartment at the end of the cycle. Here is a link to the part you need to replace. This is the part that the cold water fill hose connects to on the back of the washer.
Here is the link to the part with its description. Good luck! http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-WFMC3301UC-%3d%3di1105556&PartID=1105556

Detergent dispenser


As far as I am aware, there IS NO dispenser for bleach, you have to put bleach in drum before adding clothes and starting cycle. The far right compartment is only for "pre-wash" cycles, and if no pre-wash is selected, water will run through ALL compartments at the rinse stage..... Oshie
