Bosch Nexxt series washer - water in softener dispenser

I have a front loading Bosch. There is always water in the fabric softener dispenser after the wash load is finished. This just started about a month ago. What is causing this and how can I fix the problem?

    I have removed the dispenser and have cleaned it as best I could. There is still water in the tray after a complete wash cycle. I was hoping for solution for this issue as the sympton must indicate a problem somewhere.

    I have the same problem, water accumulates in the fabric softener dispenser. I have cleaned the dispenser and still have this issue. It didn't happen until 6+ months after I installed the washer. There must be a clog somewhere.

    I have the exact same problem, fabric softener is always filled with water after a load. My washer is now 3 years old. It has always had a tiny little bit of water in fabric softener dispenser from the first day we bought it. Usually about one tablespoon. I have an extended warranty. The first time I called, they came and swapped out the dispense, said it was warped. 3 months later, and I am still seeing it fill completely up after every wash. This time it's 10 tablespoons. Yes, I counted. If anyone can provide assistance, I would greatly appreciate it.

    I have the same problem with my fabric dispenser. Bosch replaced the dispenser, the smart board, told me the water was entering the machine at to much of a force, close the dispenser lid, you name it. Finally the solution was to replace the machine. I have had the new one 1 year and guess what....the 2nd machine is doing the same thing. My origional problem started in May of 06. Bosch has to know there is a problem

Hi. Remove dispenser, and thouroughly clean.
This should solve problem. If problem persists, don't worry about it tomuch, as long as it takes the conditioner down that is the main thing.

Water left in fabric dispenser after load


Hi,

The dispensers work by the siphon principle. You load the softener and at the proper time, the machine diverts water to the softener cup raising the level. In the softener cup, there is a tube loosely covered with a cap. When the level in the softener cup is raised high enough, a siphon effect is started and the softener is pulled from the cup into the washer. This will continue until the water quits flowing and air gets under tha cap, breaking the siphon. The amount of water remaining in the cup is dependent on the level of the cap, and the amount of residual water remaining in the dispenser fill tube once the siphon effect is broken. You can see this effect for yourself: take a measuring cup and slowly pour water into the softener cup, raising the level above the max line. When the level gets high enough, the contents of the cup will dispense. You can remove the cover cap that is a part of the dispenser and clean it; it will help. Removing the entire tray and cleaning all of the tubes and the cap assembly will also help. The only other thing that can be done is to change the dispensing supply valve, as it sounds like there may be some leak by after the fabric softener is dispensed. Having residual water isn't really hurting anything. It's only water, and the machine has dispensed the softener! Try the cleaning part first as this usually corrects the issue, and then the repair technician if it still bothers you. For as much as the extnded warranty costs, you should be completely satisfied with your machine.
Best regards, --W/D--

Fabric softener not draining


Remove the dispenser drawer by pushing down on the tab at the center back and pulling drawer out. Now, remove the top of the fabric softener compartment and the parts of the soap dispenser and clean them all out. An old toothbrush often helps. Reassemble and replace. They should siphon out now.

Water stays in rinse dispenser (fabric softener) when cycles are completed.


  • Hi,
Try these:
  1. Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the lid switch (some models)
  4. Inspect the water pump
  5. Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  6. Inspect the motor coupler

you either have low cold water pressure being caused by the screens on both ends of the cold waterline being clogged by sediment or one of the solinoids for the water inlet is bad. try removing cold water hose and cleaning both screens if that doesnt help youll need a solinoid
