If you got it to work with basic white, it seems your machine is working ok. Certain other recipes do not rise as much.

I would agree with the other user about weighing the ingredients. Also I would weight the water. 1G = 1ml.

You are not saying what the other recipes are that failed or what the ingredients are, but if including wholemeal mak sure it is 'strong'. Strong will be written on the flour pack and probably 'suitable for bread machines' also.

Plain flour will not give good results as it has only got meduim amount of gluten.

After that i would chect to make sur the yeast is covered in flour before the water is added. The yeast must not come into direct contact with the water. Also check the amount and quality/type of yeast you are using

I have a 20 year old Panasonic that we have used virtually every day for 20 years!  When we first got the machine we had the same problem that you are experiencing.  The trick for us was to use bottled water, we found that the chlorine in tap water killed the yeast.  The other trick that improved our bread was weighing the flour rather than measuring in cups. Until you have lots of experience, do stick precisely to the recipes.  mmmm--fresh bread!

White bread not rising


A couple of ideas. Firstly get fresh yeast, I use active dry yeast from the bulk barn, it is way cheaper than "breadmaker yeast" and I use a bit more. When I want more rise to my bread, I add an egg, which works wonders.

Here is a website for all the recipes you could want:

From the description of your problem it sounds as if your yeast is weak or you are not using enough or there was not enough sugar to feed the yeast. Here is another site with recipes but also offers a tip chart that you may find useful:

You may find that one machine (the old one) stipulates Active Dry Yeast and the other one (new) stipulates Rapid Rise Bread Machine Yeast. What are the main differences from your old recipe and a similar recipe in your new recipe?

That is a difficult problem. One thing you might try to get a better rise in your machine is to cut the salt in your recipe by one half. It's healthier that way too. Please let me know the result.

Don't get discouraged. Most new users of bread machines make some mistakes in the beginning.
Some things to remember: Don't lift the lid and peak inside... you'll let heat out especially during baking....recommend rapid rise yeast not active dry....I use half the salt recipes call for especially with whole wheat. Recommend you try some recipes first with unbleached bread flour, basic white bread recipes so you'll get a good rise and get your confidence up and then try whole wheat.
Maybe some of these tips will help ....

Bread won't rise


We have owned a Panasonic bread maker for ten years and gets used twice a week to make bread using "spelt " flour.About three years ago the bread maker was producing flat loaves,and was very heavy.We contacted bread making company called "Simply No Knead"and asked for there advise,as we were following the same recipe and method for around six years. They suggested that we add a little more water,and this would fix the problem.We tried this and the bread still failed to rise,so we rang them again .This time they said that we need a new bearing in the bread maker and that would fix it.We did this at a cost of $40 and still no good.This happened over a period of several months.We suggested to them that there must be something wrong with the flour,which they denied.After checking the labels on the packaging we noticed that they were using flour from another country [ I think it was Hungary ],because they had run out of suppies from Australian wheat produces.
The flour was far to old,and bread won't rise if the flour is to old. As soon as they started using Australian produced flour again the bread improved dramatically.

Hope this is helpful to you
