Water does not go into the detergent chamber. The water comes out from under the machine on the floor.


Are you sure that is not the "bleach chamber"?
To avoid risk of "bleaching" some parts of clothes with concentrated, bleach, the washer will get the bleach only when water is full & washing has started.
Non-bleaching detergent can just be put in with dry clothes.

Which of the 3 dispensers does the soap powder and rinse go in for the Bosch WFD2473


You can read the manual here.

In short page 15 describes the chambers as follows:
  • The chamber marked "I" is the prewash detergent.
  • The chamber marked "II" is the main wash detergent.
  • The chamber marked with a flower like icon is the fabric softener.
Page 14 describes how to prepare for your first wash by running it without clothes for the very first time to remove water left inside from the factory during testing. Do not skip this important step! You only have to do this once.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Why does a lot of detergent remain in the soap dispenser after a washing cycle is complete


Was the dispenser cup wet when you added detergent?
Make sure the dispenser cup is dry before adding powdered detergent. If dispenser cup is wet, the detergent can clump.
Is the cycle incomplete?
If the previous cycle did not complete, the detergent can become caked in the dispenser cup if it is left sitting in the dishwasher.
Is the detergent old?
Older detergent exposed to air will clump and not dissolve well, which will cause the dispenser door to stick to the detergent. Replace detergent if necessary and store the detergent in a tightly closed container in a cool dry place.
Is the water temperature too low?
For best washing and drying results, water should be 120oF (49o C) as it enters the dishwasher.
Were items blocking the dispenser that kept it from opening?
Items blocking the detergent dispenser will keep it from opening. Make sure water action can reach the dispenser.
Detergent guidelines
  • Use automatic dishwashing detergent only.
  • Other detergents can produce excessive suds that can overflow out of the dishwasher and reduce washing performance.
  • Store tightly closed detergent in a cool, dry place.
  • Fresh automatic dishwasher detergent results in better cleaning.
  • Add detergents just before starting the cycle.
  • The amount of detergent to use depends on the hardness of your water and the type of detergent.
  • If you use too little, dishes won't be clean.
  • If you use too much in soft water, glassware will etch.
  • Suggested fill amounts are for standard powdered detergent. Amounts may vary if you use liquid or concentrated powdered detergent. Follow instructions on the package when using these detergents.
  • Water hardness can change over a period of time. Find out your water's hardness by asking your local water department, water softener company, or county extension agent.

The washing machine doesn't open if I use detergent


read the side of the detergent box it normally says how much, and your washer is probably not opening because it has lid lock to open it you need to pause the cycle and wait a few minutes and it will release the lock also if the washeer is spinning or agitating the lid will automatically lock to open do as described above

Try a cleaning detergent/descaler. some liquids do cause problems. Softner is 1, it tends to gel in the pressure chambers in machines. This in turn causes many problems.

The fabric softner isn't draining during cycle but the bleach and detergent do just fine. I took out drawer and cleaned the dispenser but still won't empty. Help!


When cleaning the softener chamber, make sure you remove and clean the syphon tube thoroughly. This is the only chamber designed to handle liquid. Otherwise, check that you have sufficient water pressure and that the cold valve opens fully. If you dont hear a decent gush of water during the rinse cycle, it's either pressure or the valve.

The Liquid Fabric Softner dosn't dispense completely. Approximately 1/4 of it is left in the chamber.


the problem is that the hole that drains the chamber is partially blocked with dry fabric softener. pour a cup of viinegar in to the dispenser and do the wash using the hot water cycle and no clothes. this will clean it for u

use white vinegar if u have it or apple cider vinegar

The clean pump light comes on after a wash cycle or spin cycle


The Air Chamber for the Pressure Switch was blocked with liquid detergent and grease.
When I examined the machine I could see that the underside of the drum, plumbing and door seal was contaminated with mould, liquid detergent and grease.
This problem is thought to be caused by using a low temperature wash and a liquid detergent without bleach. This problem can be prevented by cleaning the washing machine once a month with 50grms of Soda crystals or one cup of distilled white Vinegar using the hottest wash cycle. Do not put clothes into the machine during this wash.
