I put slightly soiled whites on super temp boost and power wash and they do not come out clean. This is my second Bosch washer. The first was fantastic, but this washer is the pits!

Well Try this to get the whitest whites aside from Javex and detergent you can use an old method that also removes oil spots from white table cloth we all have some of those at one time or other , the way is to fill a pot of water and slice a couple lemons to be added to the pot put your whites in the pot and bring it to boiled ,turn the heat down and simmer for 15 minutes, turn the stove off and leave the whites soaking in the pot until the next day than wash them in the washer with just detergent , another solution would be to hang the whites outside the sun rays will bleach them , but at this time of the year unless you live in a warm climate they will freeze like cardboard it happened a few times in the past but I must admit that they smell very fresh and yes they are white and stiff. So I just bleach and boil the stubborn stains for now !Cascade?] and place water with dissolved cup of powder in a clean bucket, place white items ONLY in this bucket & allow to soak for a day or two...THEN wash the items white ONLY in your regular warm/hot cycle! Doing this will keep whites white! It works!

How do you clean **** buildup in a top load washer?


9 WASH PERFORMANCE INFORMATION
9.1 Creasing
Creasing can be caused by over loading the washer or the dryer. Permanent Press or Delicate
cycles have been designed to minimise creasing as they use a lower spin speed. Do not leave wet
clothes to sit in the washer or laundry basket.
9.2 Soiling
Soiling is the result of insufficient detergent for the load. White clothes are better washed
separately. Separate lightly and heavily soiled items, as clothes can pick up soil from dirty wash
water. Cold water below 68oF / 20 oC does not wash effectively. Select the wash temperature
according to soil type. For example, blood and mud are better washed in cold water, while sweat
and oil based soil wash better in warmer water. Loads made up of articles of varying sizes will
wash better (e.g. full loads of sheets may not wash that well). Hard water requires more detergent
than soft water.
9.3 Linting
Wash lint givers (eg. towels, flannelette sheets) separately from lint collectors (eg. synthetic
fabrics). Over loading the washer can increase the likelihood of linting. Insufficient detergent for
the load can increase linting as there will not be enough detergent to hold the lint in suspension.
Over drying synthetic fabrics in a dryer can cause a build-up of static electricity and result in the
fabrics attracting lint.
9.4 Detergent Residue
Over loading the washer can result in detergent residue being caught in the creases of the fabrics.
If this occurs, decrease the load size. Some detergents need to be pre-dissolved. Check the
instructions for the detergent. Cold ambient temperatures, cold washes or short agitation times
may not let the detergent dissolve properly. In these cases pre-dissolve the detergent.
Overdosing of detergent can also cause residue when foam breaks down and will show as white
specs on the clothing. Poor quality detergents can result in residue.
9.5 Black Marks on Clothes
A build up caused by the interaction of fabric softener and detergent (scrud) can flake off and mark
clothes. Do not use too much fabric softener, maximum 75cc. If this is a problem, it is
recommended that the machine is periodically filled with hot water, plus 1-2 cups of dishwasher
powder and left to soak.
9.6 Grey Marks on Clothes
Not enough detergent for the amount of soil on the clothes can result in grey marks on clothes. If
this is a problem it is recommended that the machine be periodically filled with hot water, plus
detergent and left to soak.
9.7 Dye Transfer
Wash and dry non-colorfast clothes separately. Non colorfast clothes left sitting in a washer or
laundry basket can transfer dye to other clothes.
9.8 Tangling
Washing with too much water (i.e. under loading) can cause the clothes to tangle around each
other. Do not load the machine by wrapping clothes around the agitator

I need to know what the buttons say on the dishwasher. Mine have no letters


Hi,

Some SHX46 washers have 4 wash cycle buttons and others have 5. The button on the left side on top of the door is the start/stop button regardless of how many wash cycle buttons you have.


If you have 5 cycle buttons, reading from left to right they will be as follows.

1. Top Rack Only / Sanitize
2. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
3. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
4. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
5. Rinse & Hold.

These buttons are also used for cancelling a wash cycle. Hold down buttons 2 and 4 (Power Scrub Plus and Delicate) at the same time to cancel a wash cycle and drain the water out.

If your washer does have 4 buttons, it means you don't have a Top Rack / Sanitize cycle, in which case the button configuration - from left to right - will be:

1. Power Scrub Plus - (Long wash for heavy soil)
2. Regular Wash - (Economy wash for light to medium soil)
3. Delicate Wash - (Shorter wash at a lower temperature for delicate items)
4. Rinse & Hold.

With this button configuration, the cancel cycle buttons are 1 and 3.


I hope this solves your problem. If you need any additional information, please post back.

Regards,
BElectric

Heavy towels don't come clean & smell of mildew - all whites and colours are gray after bleach has been used.


Did you add detergent to the dispenser?
For best results, add detergent to the detergent
compartment. Do not add detergent to the washer drum.
 Did you sort properly?
Sort lint givers (towels, chenille) from lint takers (corduroy,
synthetics). Dye transfer can occur when mixing whites and
colors in a load. Sort dark clothes from whites and lights.
 Did you overload the washer?
Do not overload the washer. The washer can be fully loaded,
but not tightly packed. The wash load must be balanced. Lint
can be trapped in the load if overloaded.
 Check the following:
Was paper or tissue left in pockets?
 Did you use enough HE detergent?
Follow manufacturer’s recommendations for the type of load
you are washing. For best performance, use only High
Efficiency detergent. Use enough HE detergent to remove soil
and hold it in suspension.
 Do you have hard water?
Use more detergent for washing heavy soils in cold or hard
water.
 Is your water colder than 60°F (15.6°C)?
Wash water colder than 60°F (15.6°C) may not completely
dissolve the detergent. Use hot or warm washes if safe for the
fabric load. Make sure your hot water system is adequate to
provide a hot water wash.
 Have you run the Clean Washer Cycle lately?
To freshen your washer and to avoid odors, see “Cleaning
Your Washer.”
 Are you using HE detergent?
Use of non-HE detergent can cause a film residue which can
result in odor.
 Did you leave the door open after use?
This washer has a tight seal to avoid water leaks. To avoid
odors leave the door open to allow the washer to dry
between uses.

We have a WFL 2090 UC Bosch Axxis Front end load washer. When we use the Power Wash option, the clothes are soaking wet when the cycle is completed. Are we supposed to use the Power Temp or Power Boost...


Are you sure that your washer spins? that your pump drains? You should not have this problem. Do you load your laundry properly (too much laundry- should not be more than 3/4 of the diameter of the drum)?

Mold in front of washer


The only permanent solution is to replace the door seal, and every 6 weeks or so do a high temp wash with powder in, but no clothes in. This is called a maintenance wash, and helps to keep the door rubber clean, and stops build up of grease and slime. The original problem was caused by doing too many low temp washes, and not enough high temp washes. You can try to clean seal, but but it will be permanently stained, and is not really the answer. Please rate my solution. Thanks.
