Re: Washing Machine (bosch)

It's caused by blockages the holes in the water divertor (or whatever it's called) in the roof of the soap dispenser. Not enough water flows through during the cycle to cause the siphoning action to happen which then flushes the softener through. I've noticed these holes regularly get blocked with mildew (black staining) since water lays on the plastic providing an ideal environment for mildew . A quick solution is to clear the holes using an old toothbrush or similar. Longer term is to carefully remove the water diverter panel by pulling down at the back and also sliding a thin metal blade (eg old knife) between sides of the panel to unclip it as you pull down. Rather fiddly and danger of splitting the plastic. However if you succeed you can then clean all the mildew away and replace. However it will return unless you manage to keep the soap dispenser dry - perhaps by leaving drawer open. I suspect this is a design problem since it never happened with an old Hotpoint machine I had.

The softener dispenser will not empty

If you look where you put the softener in you will probably see a tube sticking up, on the tube is a cover that sits on top and if this is loose or the tube is blocked the softener compartment will not empty.

I have a Bosch Classixx 1000 express. The comfort liquid does not feed into the machine and remains in the tray. I clean the tray our but this does not help Thank you for your help

Pull out the dispenser drwawer and see if there is a blockage at the bottom of dispenser.
In that case clean the blockage.

On some machine there is a solenoid operated plastic tab at the bottom of the dispenser, in that case check the solenoid.

If machine is not filling at all, check inlet hose, inlet valve and pressure switch.

Fabric softener dispenser no longer works on my Bosch, the dispenser remains full of fabric softener, all else ok Bosch classixx 1200 express

Remove soap drawer completely from washer, and thoroughly clean all parts of it, paticularly the conditioner compartment..
Get a piece of stiff wire, and make a right angled bend in the end of it, then poke the wire into all the holes in the top of the soap drawer compartment to clear any possible blockage.
This should solve the prob.

Fabric softener dispenser does not empty on Bosch Classic washing machine

I have a bosh washing machine and the fabric dispencer was not emptying, i took the compartment out and washed it all out making sure all the muck was off. Then i looked in the machine (where the dispencer had been) and looked up. There were some holes so i got a needle and poked it up and wiggled it, some black muck came out, i cleaned the rest of the holes and now it is working again.

Bosch Washing Machine Softener Tray not emptying

You need to replace the cold water inlet valve. If the machine is older than one year it may be clogged on the side that moderates the cold water to the bleach and softener compartment. Replacing the valve fixed the problem. During the cycle when the softener dispenser fills it should fill quickly and no or little water should be seen in the soap dispenser area. If a lot of water goes into the soap dispense and little into the softener area the valve is clogged.

Fabric conditioner drawer does not empty

The inlet to the conditioner compartment is probably blocked.
Get a thin piece of flexible wire and make a right angled bend on the end about 1" long, and poke it into all the holes u can see in the top of the dispenser compartment, particularly the ones at the front right side.
This should solve the prob.

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
