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