1 1/2 PER LOAD

What is the time for a normal wash cycle on a bosch washing machine? The one I have takes 1 1/2 hr. per load, is there a problem with my washer or is this normal for this brand?

    Hi thanks for your help. I am using HE Tide but I am always choosing hot water for towels and jeans; one [1] hour long cycle. Is this normal?

One & a half hours is normal when you need a thorough wash; but there are other options like "quick wash" which takes lesser time; depends on what brand of machine you have. Maybe you will find things in your users' manual

This is joyce
It is according to what cycle you have it set on and what kind of detergent you are using. if you use something other than HE detergent you may have a very long cycle, its trying to get all the suds out of your clothes, and yes the cycles do range that high.

Expected longevity for Electrolux washer EIFLW55HMBO


The average lifespan of a washer, whether it is a top-loader or a front-loader, is about 14 years. This is determined by calculating seven loads of washing per week, or doing one load per day.
By the Numbers Washers are rated by how many cycles they can perform before they break. Each load is considered one cycle, so for a washer to last 14 years, it must be able to handle about 5,100 cycles. Of course, machines that cost less may only be rated at 4,000 cycles, while high-end machines may be rated at 8,000 cycles or higher. If possible, always check the cycle rating before you buy. You may find a bargain where you'll pay only a couple of hundred dollars more for a washer that is rated at twice as many cycles.
Stress The biggest cause of washer breakdown is stress. Overloading the washer puts stress on all of the extra parts, like the motor, the drive belts and the coupling. The harder these parts work, the shorter their lifespan. An 8,000-cycle washer can be reduced to a 1,000-cycle washer if constantly stressed with loads that are way over capacity. To prevent this, wash smaller loads and take larger objects, like quilts, comforters and sleeping bags, to a commercial laundry. This will limit the stress on the washing machine components and assure you of a longer washing machine lifespan.
Extend the Lifespan Wash less to extend the lifespan of your appliance. Even if you cut out just one load per week, you have automatically extended the lifespan of your washer. If you only do three loads per week, you'll effectively double the washer's lifespan.

Bosch Nexxt 300 washer takes hours to do a single load


We had similliar problem. We were overloading the wash barrel and using too much soap. The soap was foaming causeing the washer to add rinse cycles hinse more time to the cycle. Make sure your soap has the HE ( high efficiency ) label on it. Hope this helps.

A mold smell from my washing machine


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

Clothes washer


I could not find a definite answer for you, but I know that the wash tub holds roughly 35 gallons on a full load. You can calculate the time it takes the washer to completely empty a full load to see how long it takes. If it takes 1 minute for the wash tub to empty on a full load, then you know the GPM for the drain pump is about 35 gallons per minute. If it takes a minute and a half, the rate is about 23 gallons per minute. If it takes 2 minutes, then the rate drops to about 17.5 gallons per minute. Get the idea? I hope this gives you the information you were looking for. Let me know if you have any further questions.

My Maytag front loading washer does not fully rinse cloths MAH8700A. I purchased this washer about 6 months ago. I usually wash small loads but have noticed it doesnt matter what size load. When first...


Is the drain path free-flowing? That is, does the water eject freely during spin/rinse? Maybe there's a restriction in the line, or it's too high above the washer.
