Bosch technical support told me on the phone when I called to ask about this that it would ruin something if I used actual bleach. A seal or something. So although I had used a small amount twice, I have stopped. I admit I'm not happy about not being able to use real bleach. The substitutes don't seem to whiten clothes quite as well.

I am not sure of the dispenser trays but if the clothes are taking to long to dry and are still damp, check the vent hose and the duct work going out the apartment for lint buildup.

Why no bleach?


Simply put. It's not needed in this machine. The hole idea of a front load washer (most euro models anyway) is the old "mechanical wash" idea. Hence no need for bleach, which is solely for use in a "chemical wash" machine, i.e. top load washers.

You are speaking the truth there , the really sad part is all brand front load washers will have mold/mildew build up due to the rubber boot seals they all use , the only way of fixing this is soaking and scrubbing with bleach which is not a fun job to do.
until they can figure out how to get all the water out after use we will have to deal with mildew.
top load washers use gravity to drain most water out so they dont have this problem.

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
