Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer

1 Answer

After a wash load , the softener resevoir is full of water

Whether we use a softener or not, after every wash load the softener resevoir is full of water. This is something new and we have been using this machine flaw less for about 10 months. If you remove the tray and empty (no obvious signs of plugging), it fills again in the next load. There is no problem with the soap or bleach resevoir.

We had this same problem for a long time and I could never figure it out.  Then one day I cleaned the screens on the water inlet hoses.  I cleaned both the cold and hot lines.  I cleaned both ends of each line.  Suprisingly to me, there was a fair amount of granular light brown stuff lodged in the little holes of the strainers.  Since we are on city water, I doubt it was sand but that is what it looked like to me.
Anyway, after I cleaned them thouroughly, the filling of the softener/bleach compartments with water no longer happened.  Perhaps this is just a coincidence but it was the only thing I changed.
I hope this helps.

Fabric softener dispenser fills up with clear water after washing cycle is complete. I do not use fabric softener .


Purchase some fabric softener and place it in its normal location at the beginning of the cycle. At the end of the cycle check to see if fabric softener has been dispensed and whether there is water in the cup.

If the fabric softener is gone, but there is water in the fabric softener cup, then your problem may be with the water valve assembly. The water valve assembly (as one complete unit) has a separate solenoid for hot and cold water temperatures, bleach and fabric softener. The fabric softener solenoid on the water valve assembly could be defective (allowing water to fill the fabric softener cup).

Contact an appliance service company.

Detergent tray full of water


Hi....Lift the softener cover off the tray and you will find the syphon tube or the cover underneath are blocked. Push some wire through the syphon tube to make sure it is clear and give everything a good wash.

open the dispenser all the way,place your finger towards the back left of dispenser.you should see a tab,depress the tab and pull entire dispenser cup out.the bleach and fab soft part of the disp has a removable tray.clean all pieces out including the long shafts on the insert.you will more than likely find a build up of softener,this breaks the siphon and does not allow the water to drain out.good luck

Soap dispenser


Some softeners are too thick, you could dilute this with water before you add to the machine. Note: Your tube to the softener drawer could be loose or something, you could check this by taking the top of the machine off to examine. Actually simple.
