Question about Bosch Axxis+ WFR 2460 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My Axxis wfr 2460 is not releasing the fabric softner from the drawer

The wfr 2460 is 5 years old and is a great machine but lately it has not been dispensing the fabric softner. My first though is that the dispensor cover is clogged with fabric softner (it is very moldy) but I could be wrong here. If I were to clean it I don't know how to get the cover off. I have tried to remove the 3 screws but the dispensing housing is secure by what appears to be the top mounting rail. I thought I read on a similar site that I should check out a sensor but which one? Thanks for you help in advance.

You could try a tooth-brush. And after you fill your quantity of softener, top it with water till the exit level of the compartment. You could also check whether water actually pours into the compartment during the final rinsing of the clothes; in this case you should check the inlet pipe screens of your inlet pipe into the machine; which can be done without opening up the machine.

Despite cleaning out the drawer, the fabric softner is still there at the end of the wash. Have cleaned the drawer several times, but to no avail. Any suggestions?

Remove drawer/ look inside opening of washer ( at the top of opening inside) there is small little holes for the water to come through to fill the fabric softner spot and also bleach spot and detrgent spot. Holes may be pluged use a old tooth bush or some item to clean holes..Hope that helps thanks for voting.

    We went through the whole "clean the soap dispenser" deal and results were the same. Exploratory surgery revealed that the Prewash hose (for lack of better term), which connects from the top of the drum housing to the right side of the dispenser drawer (facing the machine)was completely clogged with gunk. Especially strange since we don't prewash hardly anything, ever. The hose that connects the bottom of the detergent dispenser with the side of the drum housing did have a lot of buildup, but I do not believe it was the cause because this was only happening on the rinse cycle. I also found the flow meter was frozen up.

    Not sure if the 2450 is compatible with the 2460, but here is a parts diagram that shows the display module, part #AP3854652, for $97.69 from I ordered replacement carbon brushes and a drain pump from them and have been happy with their service.
