Question about Bosch Washing Machines

Open Question

Hi have a Bosch WFO2467 front loading washing machine probably 5 years old. The softener compartment is not being emptied on each cycle and I have a feeling it might be the water jets. I clean the external area regularly but if the inner tubes are blocked what can I do?

Squeee, It's been more than a year since you posted this so I guess you must know the answer. It sounds like a Visit from an engineer(?) I've got exactly the same problem with a Servis Easilogic 1500 and would appreciate knowing what you had to do to resolve the issue.

SOURCE: Fabric softener compartment problem.

I have this problem as well.. All washing machines manufactured nowadays are energy effficient, which means that they don't use as much water as the older models. This can result in a build-up of bacteria in the top part of the washing machine, which is clogging up the bit where the water comes through to flush the fabric conditioner into the drum. What I have to do every so often, is to take the top off the washing machine and clean out the layer of black slime that has built up, blocking the holes where the water goes into the washing machine. Another contributory factor is that the usual program used is a 40 degree wash, which is not hot enough to completely flush the machine through. Manufacturers recommend running a 90 degree wash once a month with just washing powder in iit, no clothes. Hope this is some help

I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.

SOURCE: Bosch Washing Machine Softener Tray not emptying

You need to replace the cold water inlet valve. If the machine is older than one year it may be clogged on the side that moderates the cold water to the bleach and softener compartment. Replacing the valve fixed the problem. During the cycle when the softener dispenser fills it should fill quickly and no or little water should be seen in the soap dispenser area. If a lot of water goes into the soap dispense and little into the softener area the valve is clogged.

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.

The fabric softener compartment in is full of water. I need to empty this manually prior to each wash . Many, many thanks. Judy


The fabric softener dispenser has to be purged between wash cycles to prevent residue from clogging it. What you are observing is normal operation.

The softener dispenser will not empty


If you look where you put the softener in you will probably see a tube sticking up, on the tube is a cover that sits on top and if this is loose or the tube is blocked the softener compartment will not empty.

My Bosch washing machine doesn't add the softener from its compartment


The first thing you should do is check the compartment from the fabric softener. If something is blocking the exit of the softener, the machine will not add it.

If you checked the exit or the holes in the valve of the fabric softener compartment and nothing seems to be stuck there, there could be a problem with your washer's timer. Check the timer and get a replacement for it.

Washing m/c does not take softener during washing cycle.


Hi. Assuming the washer has completed the rinse sequence, there is a possibility the dispenser part of the valve could be faulty. I assume that you have put the conditioner in the right compartment of the dispenser.. If all else seems to be o/k, I recmmomend thay you once again thouroughly strip and clean the dispenser..
The other possibility is that the hole where the water comes in at the top of the dispenser is blocked.
You need a stiff piece of wire with a hook on the end and poke each hole that you can see in the top of the dispenser compartment
This should solve the problem
Please leave feeed back.
Thanks

Bosch conditioner drawer


This problem is caused by the compartment not filling up sufficiently to start the siphon action. First ensure that the drawer is clean, especially the siphon tube then, with the drawer removed, check the top of the compartment. You will find various holes that let in the water, make sure these are clean and not blocked with mould. Clean out with mould remover and wire then run a cycle with no washing or softener/detergent in the machine.

Water remains in fabric softner compartment


Is the softener entering the machine; that is at the appropriate time? You can take a peep at this time, if possible. If it is water it is okay; this is just the remaining water. The softener is dissolved with water and flushed into the machine.
