Question about Bosch Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hooking my Bosch up to my kitchen sink?

I'm trying to figure out how I can hook my Bosch front loading washing machine to my sink. I don't know what to do, really. I see two metal hoses coming out of the back, but neither will hook into my sink faucet. The draining seems simple - put the drain into the sink and there you go. But, it's getting the water into the machine?

I don't know the model - it's not apparent on the machine. It's smallish, white and a few years old.

Thanks.

SOURCE: Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim

SOURCE: bosch frontload washer will not drain

This worked! I had the same problem. First, I unplugged the washer's power cord from the electrical outlet. Then I opened the filter door, and unscrewed the plastic cap, I cleaned our the area behind the cap and found two pieces of thin metal and a penny inside this area.One of the metal pieces was actually jamming the impeller. Spin cycle now works! Thanks!!

Bosch Axxis washing machine: clothes small moldy after washing!


Due to mainly running low temp washes and bacteria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe) many machines will begin to smell, generally the smell is described as a damp flannel!. This can be transferred to the wash load if like myself you tend to put a load on before going to work and then removing when you get home. (The washing is clean but smells disgusting!!!)
Run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) If you buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time you need to do this, run the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out.
My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I do mainly 30 and 40 degree washes with and occasional 60.
I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months.
Hope this helps. Roni.
(ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

Bosch maxx classic washing machine doesn't clean clothes


There are a lot of things to consider when trying to solve this problem. Obviously a front loader washes differently than a top loader. Top loaders tend to using a washing motion that is good for stains but wear out your clothes fast. Front loaders typically use less water and wash more gently, but in some ways still do better than top loaders. Anyway, think about any other variables that go into the laundry equation. Consider the distance the machine is from your water heater. This machine will use MUCH less water to fill than your old one, and, you know how when you turn a faucet on hot it takes a minute for the hot water to actually get there? It's the same way with your machine. If there's a sink next your washer, you should always turn on the hot water on the faucet until it gets hot right before you start the machine. The same goes for dishwashers. If there's not a sink close you can easily turn up the temperature for all hot water on your water heater, although that will use more energy.
Consider what detergent you're using. If you're using high efficiency detergent (like Tide he) maybe you should switch to your old brand. If you're using your old brand of detergent, try getting a high efficiency detergent.

Bosch Front Load not draining


Sounds like a blockage. First port of call. Check where the drain hose goes into the sink trap of your Laundry Trough. Here in Australia we connect the drain hose into the sink trap. Most of the time if the hole drilled into the sink trap is not large enough it can create an obstruction in the waterflow out of the machine. Lint and stuff can build up and partially and at times fully block the exit into the trap. Try this first.
If that appears fine you should remove the drain in the front bottom of the machine. Use a bath towel to absorb the wter that exits as you unscrew the round plug in the bootom of the machine. If the plug wont unscrew or only partially unscrews you will need to call a technician to remove the drain pump and unblock things.
Goodluck. Let me know how it goes.
Regards Sam
