25569074-ineink0kisfnom0atbkujjcx-3-0.jpg
compartment 1: Detergent for pre-wash
(powder)

Before pouring in the detergent, make sure that extra compartment 4 has been removed.

compartment 2: Detergent for the wash cycle
(powder or liquid)

Liquid detergent should only be poured in immediately prior to the wash cycle start.

compartment 3: Additives (fabric softeners, etc.)
The fabric softener should not overflow from the grid.

extra compartment 4: Bleach
! Do not use Hand Wash Detergent because it may form too much foam.

Cleaning the detergent dispenser
Remove the dispenser by raising it and pulling it out (see figure).
Wash it under running water; this operation should be repeated
frequently.

Washing machine will not take fabric conditioner into wash cycle


Ensure it is on the correct setting for the conditioner first, then check the water supply nozzle in the detergent compartment. If not joy just add it to the powder?

Where do I put the detergent & the softner in my Bosh Axxis washer? It has three compartments at the front


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
A quick and easy way to find out which tray is which is to pull the detergent drawer out just so that you can see into it. Start a pre-wash and see where the water runs in, then advance to the main wash and observe. Finally start a rinse cycle and where the water goes in is where the conditioner/softener goes.
In a few cases I have come across, the pre-wash tray shares with the conditioner/softener part but the pre-wash powder goes in the front and the softener in the back.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Methinks you could also do with a manual to help you ;-0)
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,

Soap not dissolving in dishwasher. stays in compartment


Hi, dishwasher detergent stays in the compartment because Bosch has designed a gap at the top of the compartment that feeds water onto the detergent before the cover opens. This has possibly been done to soften up deteregent tablets and help them dissolve.

The result is a solidified mass of wet detergent that doesn't come out of the compartment when it opens, and slowly dissolves onto the dishes leaving them coated with alkaline detergent at the end of the cycle. The residual lump of detergent is in the compartment or on the bottom of the dishwasher (refer photo).

The solution is to remove the compartment cover and look for the small gap at the top of the compartment as in the photos. Clean the surface and fill the gap with epoxy glue. This will keep the detergent dry until the cover opens, allowing the detergent to fall freely out of the compartment._1583.jpg

Machine won't draw out fabric conditioner from dispenser


Hello,
I dont know what model you have but you are correct in your assumption that the conditioner is siphoned out on the last rinse unless it is different for your model.Most machines I am familiar with operate in the first instance.Check that you have good water pressure to all compartments also get a toothbrush and clean the holes above the drawer even a bent piece of wire to unblock the small holes.

Good luck

We want to know which compartment to put the detergent in for the quick wash? the large one with the cover or the smaller one with the vent slits?


The large one with the cover can be used with a quick wash. The quick wash just cuts out one of the beginning rinse cycles but should still be opening the detergent door. The one with the slits in it is if you have particularly dirty dishes or ones that have had dirt sitting on them for a while and the detergent will go into very first rinse cycle and help to free the dirt or food. The only time the door should not open is in a rinse only cycle if your d/w has this cycle. Thanks for rating me after you read this.

Any detergent that says "Automatic" should be OK.

Pretty much any softener should be OK.

You will usually find a drawer on the front panel of the machine, just under the top edge, typically on the left hand side.

If you open this drawer, you will find it is divided into a number of (typically four) compartments. There will be one or two large compartments for detergent and one or two smaller, usually partially covered, compartments for bleach and conditioner.

You need to identify which is which.

Starting with detergent: If you only have one large compartment, that's the one to use.

If there are two, you need to know which is for main wash and which is for prewash. If one is bigger than the other, use the big one for your main detergent load. If using a cycle that does a prewash, put detergent in the smaller compartment as well.

If they're both the same, you need to experiment: Select a wash cycle that doesn't do prewash. Turn the machine on, and when it starts to fill, cautiously open the drawer a little and look to see which compartment has the fill water running through it. That's the one you need to use for your main wash detergent (use the other as well on cycles that do a prewash).

Now look at the smaller compartments. Hopefully, they'll be marked with a triangle for the bleach and something looking like a flower for the conditioner. If not, put a little bit of conditioner into the bottom of each, set the machine to "final rinse" and see which compartment it takes the conditioner from. That's the one you use for conditioner in future. (Don't worry about the little bit of conditioner you've put in the bleach tray - this will rinse out the first time you run a full cycle).

When putting in bleach or conditioner, it's important not to overfill. If there's a fill level line, don't go above that. If the compartment is covered with a grating then fill no further than the grating. Overfilling will cause the product to go into the machine too early in the cycle.

(Finally, strongly advise against posting your phone number or personal email address on public internet sites - it attracts all sorts of undesirable attention)

Good luck - and enjoy your new machine.

Kenmore He2 shoots out water from the detergent compartment


After searching the internet we discovered that if you slide your fingers in between the metal drum and rubber seal under the soap dispenser area you may find the problem. We had a sock blocking the water inlet. Problem solved! This machine is going to give us a lot of headaches but thanks to the internet we may be able to continue to save money fixing it ourselves.

FYI, I find if you leave the door open a crack after each wash... you avoid the mold smell as well!

Conditioner is not used in the wash cycle


I had the same problem with my Bosch Classixx 1200 Express.
It was fixed today & I now know what to do in the future if it happens. The water gets into the soap/ conditioner dispenser drawer via 2 pipes. One points to the main detergent compartment and the other to the pre-wash and conditioner compartments. The pipes become clogged with a type of mould. This meant that in my machine the water was bypassing the conditioner. I had already removed the drawer and cleaned it up and cleaned the jets above with an old tootbrush but it hadn't solved the problem. The repair guy used a cable tie (one of those that is quite firm & will lock) and pushed it up inside the bigger jets. This loosened the black gunge. Then ran water thru from start of the basic cycles and all is now OK
