Is the powder in a dispenser? If so, the function is a problem. First, try the latch: does it move freely? If not, clean/replace that item.

There may also be a corroded connection or the solenoid actuator is bad. Inspect. Disconnect wires and test for continuity. When running a cycle, see if voltage appears when powder should be dispensed. If yes, solenoid is the problem. If no, wiring or timer.

I have a Bosch Exxcel 1200 Express washing machine and notice that the fabric softener is not being flushed into the drum. Otherwise it washes OK. I have scrubbed out the powder tray and emptied the...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I hope you don't mind me saying so but often the softener dispensing siphon tube gets missed when cleaning the dispenser 'cos it's difficult to see!----------->
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.

If this isn't the problem it could be that the water dispensing is not working correctly. It is easy to check by selecting (final?) rinse, pulling the drawer slightly out and seeing and hearing whether water is being fed into the softener tray. If is isn't then it is a call-out ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

I take delivery of a Bosch washing machine on11th Dec but would like to know what detergent is recommended to use please


You can use virtually any brand of detergent, so long as it is recommended for front loading washers.
This is important ,as using the wrong type will cause problems with oversudsing..
You can also use tablets instead of powder.
Hope this answers your query.

Ive just brought a re-conditioned bosch classixx washing machine,


boil wash the machine with old towels and powder, 90 degree wash will bring out the bleach in the powder and the old towels will throw the bleach around the tub removing the bacteria that has grown in the tub, the bacteria comes from the washing powder to eat the dirt in clothes and sometimes gets left in the tub and pipes (most people only wash at 40 degrees the bleach wont come out the powder until at least 60 degrees hence the build up and smell). you may have to do this twice to get it smelling good, remove the drawer also and clean off any bacteria with a cloth and spray bleach.

Slime buildup in my washing machine


The slime is almost certainly the enzymes in the washing powder that are there to digest the dirt getting left behind.

3 things you can try:

  1. As a one off to help clear out the slime, throw a couple of DISHWASHER tablets into the machine and run it through the hottest cycle it has. This may help get rid of the problem, but it will of course come back.
  2. Reduce the amount of washing powder you are using and keep cutting back until you get to the point where the clothes arent getting clean (This has the advantage of cutting the cost of your powder purchases too!). This should allow the machine to more effectively purge the drum when it rinses.
  3. Finally, change your powder, if for no other reason than a test, go try a pack of NON-BIO washing powder and see if that helps. If it does, either stick with it or experiment with other powders until you find one that helps and you like.
A combination of 2 and 3 above should eventually get you where you need to be.

Bosch axxis washing machine detergent symbols


There are usually 3 compartments in the drawer, the smallest is for using fabric conditioner, the largest is where you put the powder or detergent in, the middle size one you do not put anything in, as it is where the cold water comes in for rinsing.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Goes through washing cycle but doesn't dissolve the tablets or cleans the clothes.


Clean out your outlet filter; this is to be done regularly once a month, depending on your usage. Re your tablets not disolving, try using front loading washing powder. Also refer to your manual..........
