SOURCE: WFLI2440 FRONT LOAD FABRIC SOFTENER NOT DISPENSING

your soap drawer is most likely to be blocked , the only true way of clearing the blockage is to take the soap dispenser completely out . you will see that all the jets will be blocked ,you can do this before taking it all apart by taking the drawer out band looking up, if it looks clean ie; no black gunge then it may be a water valve problem, as the cold fill side has 2 internal valves both have come on together to clear the conditioner compartment.

SOURCE: Fabric softener dispenser does not empty on Bosch

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.

SOURCE: Fabric softener stays in drawre

We just had a tech come out to fix this problem for us. Essentially, the problem is that the fabric softener builds up and gets clogged. He cleaned out a solid hunk of frabric softener gunk, and suggested that we dilute our fabric softener with water to keep this buildup from happening again.

SOURCE: Hard scratchy towels. Have used all wash cycles, and use fabric softener

have you tried just white vinegar as your rinse aid. Do a full cycle of your washing machine using white vinegar instead of detergent, to clean any residue from pipes, and then in the next wash try white vinegar as your rinse aid.

SOURCE: fabric softener dispenser no longer works on my Bosch

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.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

What Bosch wff 1201. I think the heating element may be damaged. It hasn't gone open circuit but what is it's impedence supposed to be?


As long as there is no break in the heater element, there is no problem with the heater element. The thermostat is bad if you are not getting the proper amount of heat.

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.

1 Answer

I have a Bosch WFF 1401. I removed the drawer as I sometimes do to clean it. Since I replaced the drawer the softner section is always filled with water and never empties.


There can be 2 reasons. The centre section dispenses the fabric softener in the last rinse. It works on a syphon effect.
If it is not assembled correctly the water flows over the side to avoid a flood and leaves the middle section full at the end. Make sure the inner pipe is inside the outer pipe and that both are completely clear of softener residue. As you have just reassembled it this is the most likely cause.
The second reason is the water inlet can become blocked therefore not creating sufficient flow to create a syphon effect. It gets blocked with black gunk and needs to be cleaned with pipe cleaners or a long cable tie. There are 4 rectangular holes above the centre section, near the front. They can be seen easily if you take the drawer out.

Hope this helps
