    Thank you for replying. No, our water is soft. Never had this problem with a top loader Maytag.

Have you had your water tested? Hard water or iron particulates will leave whites with "dingies"

I put slightly soiled whites on super temp boost and power wash and they do not come out clean. This is my second Bosch washer. The first was fantastic, but this washer is the pits!

well Try this to get the whitest whites aside from Javex and detergent you can use an old method that also removes oil spots from white table cloth we all have some of those at one time or other , the way is to fill a pot of water and slice a couple lemons to be added to the pot put your whites in the pot and bring it to boiled ,turn the heat down and simmer for 15 minutes, turn the stove off and leave the whites soaking in the pot until the next day than wash them in the washer with just detergent , another solution would be to hang the whites outside the sun rays will bleach them , but at this time of the year unless you live in a warm climate they will freeze like cardboard it happened a few times in the past but I must admit that they smell very fresh and yes they are white and stiff. So I just bleach and boil the stubborn stains for now !Cascade?] and place water with dissolved cup of powder in a clean bucket, place white items ONLY in this bucket & allow to soak for a day or two...THEN wash the items white ONLY in your regular warm/hot cycle! Doing this will keep whites white! It works!

Kenmore front-load. washer leaks out of the detergent compartment

try cleaning out detergent compartment if you can take compartment out the inside area may need to be cleaned out make sure the machine is not to full
and if there is mold you can try using pool shock about a spoon full on wash cycle by it self this well not hurt seals and is safer then bleach and also to control the mold use a pool algecide use litely two tbs to a spray bottle and keep door open after use
but it sounds like compartment door is not fitted properly i hope this helps

Hard scratchy towels. Have used all wash cycles, and use fabric softener

have you tried just white vinegar as your rinse aid. Do a full cycle of your washing machine using white vinegar instead of detergent, to clean any residue from pipes, and then in the next wash try white vinegar as your rinse aid.

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.

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
