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

1 Answer

Adding detergent/softener/bleach I do not see anything in the operator's manual for my Nexxt 500 plus Bosch washer that says you can fill the detergent, softener, and bleach compartments up to a certain level. I am adding the detergent, etc. each load. I see there is a maximum marker on the softener and bleach compartments, but not on the detergent compartment. Can I add more than one load worth of product at a time?

Error code E:13 on my 500 plus series washer


Hi,
The E13 error code on your Bosch washer refer to a drainage problem or the pump time might have been exceeded
Either it might be due to a clogged pump, improper detergent being used, ( must use "HE" detergent ) hence suds not allowing a proper drain cycle. You should clean water drainage pipe and/or drain hose. Turn selector to off and restart 'drain, program or, on 500 plus machines, the 'refresh' program. It also says this is caused by using too much detergent. Bosch recommends using half of what the manufacturer recommends when using HE detergents. They don't recommend regular detergents. First run the short wash or refresh cycle without detergent and hopefully your lines will clear.

Thank you !!

The Softener is not going through.


you need to take the soapbox out and clean thoroughly. Pull the soapbox out to the point where you get resistance and the you will see a tab you press to release it fully. Do not force the soapbox out. Take it to the sink and clean with hot water. Softener can be like jello when it drys and will block the release.

Is there any detergent I should avoid using in my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series washer?


Any clothes-washer HE (low suds) soap will do. Just be aware that you only need a tablespoon of the soap, not the 3/4 cup that comes in the box!

Nexxt 500 washer - fabric softener tray fills with water and doesn't drain. I have not used liquid fabric softener in this machine. It is 16mo old. What do I do to stop this?


There is suppose to be an outlet that opens up at the same time water enters ( to flush out softener). That outlet is either stuck shut or the wire fell off (I believe this is a little solenoid plunger with a wire attached). It is common for wires to come loose from the vibrations of the machine

Bosch 3.81 cu ft Nexxt 500 Plus bleach not dispensing


We had the same problem with the bleach dispenser. It was under warranty so Lowe's sent a repairman that replaced some part in the control panel that he said was faulty on this model. He also said to only use 1-2 Tablespoons of HE detergent and leave the door open. Also dilute any softeners before adding them.

My front loader Bosch washing machine is not draining in the fabric softener section.


Make sure it is the fabric softener that is not being added. Try running w/o fabric softener and see if the tray is still full. The reason I am asking is that after I run my washer the fabric softener tray is full, with water, not softener. The factory tells me it is because the water fill nozzles have realigned and overspray into the softener tray. Not a big problem, since my system is under warranty I am having them fix the nozzles and then I will know how to redirect.
If it is the softener that is not being added then check to make sure the line is not clogged. You can lift out the bleach / softener try and check for cloggs.

Bosh washer won't dispense softener. cleaned the tray and tested it by filling with water and it drained completly out, so i know its not clogged. washed another load and softener still there at end of...


I had the same problem. I went to www.justanswer.com and asked the same question as you. I have copied my questions and answers into this reply. My Bosch Nexxt 500 Series washer has stopped dispensing fabric Sent to Appliance Experts 10/25/2009 at 3:24 PM My Bosch Nexxt 500 Series washer has stopped dispensing fabric softener; I also find water in the softener dispenser cup (little cup that pops out for washing - has two sides, one for softener and the other for bleach) after every load. I have tried soaking and cleaning the cup with a brush as the manual indicates with no changes; water still standing. I removed the dispenser and filled it with water. The water didn't run out until I angled the end with the drain hole slightly down. Then the water came out through the drain hole fine. I thought maybe I hadn't cleaned it properly and bought a new dispenser assembly; this is a big part with the dispensers for detergent, softener, and bleach. I replaced my softener dispenser cup with the new one. Same problem. Help.

Optional Information:
Make: Bosch Nexxt 500 Series
Model: WFMC3301UC

Already Tried:
I stated my case in my question, but I did disassemble the dispenser cup. There is no blockage. It looks just like the new dispenser cup in the new assembly I bought. I also have only ran bleach through the detergent dispenser 2 times in 3 years.
Status: Awaiting Expert Reply Value: $28 Answer 10/25/2009 at 3:26 PM (2 minutes and 40 seconds later) if the dispenser is clean, then you need to replace your cold water electronic water valve. This water valve has 2 solenoids. Once for the softner and one to fill the tub. The solenoid that fills the tub can be working normally while the softner solenoid will fail to open as far as it needs and will either not send water into the softner compartment at all, or will only fill very slowly leaving diluted softner in the compartment at the end of the cycle. Here is a link to the part you need to replace. This is the part that the cold water fill hose connects to on the back of the washer.
Here is the link to the part with its description. Good luck! http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-WFMC3301UC-%3d%3di1105556&PartID=1105556

Detergent dispenser


As far as I am aware, there IS NO dispenser for bleach, you have to put bleach in drum before adding clothes and starting cycle. The far right compartment is only for "pre-wash" cycles, and if no pre-wash is selected, water will run through ALL compartments at the rinse stage..... Oshie
