Bosh 1200 classixx does not finish the program, conditioner stays in the dispenser
Bosh 1200 classixx does not finish the program, half empty drum (7-9litres) conditioner stays in the dispenser, "when finished" flashing 1200 and 600 LED's of course can not open the drum. It does not want to rinse on spin or rinse program either, however when any other programme is runnig the drum is spinnig.
Could it be the pump? Valves(solenoids)? any suggestions.

I have cleaned the pipes going for rinsed water,plus the plumbing stuff like vertical pipe which has on top something like coupler for washing machine and dishwasher, here was problem. It was cloged up with rubish and becouse the pump could not make enugh pressure the machine has stopped in the moiddle of washing as it could not rinse.(Spin)

I hope you don't mind me saying so but often the softener dispensing siphon tube gets missed when cleaning the dispenser 'cos it's difficult to see!----------->
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
If this isn't the problem it could be that the water dispensing is not working correctly. It is easy to check by selecting (final?) rinse, pulling the drawer slightly out and seeing and hearing whether water is being fed into the softener tray. If is isn't then it is a call-out ;-0(

Hi, welcome to Fixya.
Immediately what comes to mind, actually two things. Fabric softner can often be too thick to dispense properly in front load dispenser's unless deluted half & half with water before adding. The other thing is this, it could be the water inlet hoses connected backwards, i.e. Hot going to cold and cold to hot at the washer, hence in the rinse cycle when cold water should enter the fabric softner chamber it doean't.
Let me know what you find as I will look for your reply.

ITS NOT THE DRAW THATS NEEDED CLEANING ITS THE JETS ABOVE IN ROOF OF DISPENSER THESE ARE DIFFICULT TO CLEAN UNLESS YOU USE HOT SOAPY WATER AND A SYRINGE TO FORCE THE BACTERIAL GROWTH BACK DOWN THE PIPES,IF YOU DO THIS KEEP GOING TILL NO MORE BLACK STUFF COMES OUT THEN TRY IT IT SHOULD WORK LEAVE THE DRAWER AJAR WHEN NOT IN USE THIS WILL CUT DOWN THE MILDEW GROWTH.
Remove soap drawer completely from washer, and thoroughly clean all parts of it, paticularly the conditioner compartment..
Get a piece of stiff wire, and make a right angled bend in the end of it, then poke the wire into all the holes in the top of the soap drawer compartment to clear any possible blockage.
This should solve the prob.

I had the same problem with my Bosch Classixx 1200 Express.
It was fixed today & I now know what to do in the future if it happens. The water gets into the soap/ conditioner dispenser drawer via 2 pipes. One points to the main detergent compartment and the other to the pre-wash and conditioner compartments. The pipes become clogged with a type of mould. This meant that in my machine the water was bypassing the conditioner. I had already removed the drawer and cleaned it up and cleaned the jets above with an old tootbrush but it hadn't solved the problem. The repair guy used a cable tie (one of those that is quite firm & will lock) and pushed it up inside the bigger jets. This loosened the black gunge. Then ran water thru from start of the basic cycles and all is now OK
