Hi there!

Yes you can. You can also reduce the ammount of detergent you use if yoe are using that.

Try also basic Borax if it is available. It's natural, antibacterial, and biodegradable......Good news all round.

My maytag neptune spins water out, the tub is empty but when you turn the tub manually you can hear water sloshing and the clothes smells moldy after washing

There will always be some residual water left in the outer tub after draining. This is normal for most washers. Purchase a container of Oxy-clean and cycle the washer a few times using hot water settings with a half-cup of Oxy-clean added to each cycle. This will help remove any organic matter left behind that might be causing odors.

Front end loader

are you using the correct detergent and not to much for this machine-try cleaning out the drain trap and filter-wipe down the door seal and tub with a bleach or oxy type cleaner -run the sanitizer cycle with a quarter cup of powdered dishwasher soap,and finally leave the door open between loads-this ain't your momma's washer-these things can be a pain in the booter-cheers Denny

I have a bosch washer about 3 years old. It suddenly stopped on spin cycle and water would not drain even when I put it to drain only. The motor chatters now like a car with a battery that is dead. Is this...

It does sound like the problem is related to the water pump.
The filter should be located at the bottom front right of washer, sometimes behind a removeable cover.
Locate filter, and remove by turning anti-clockwise, and clean, check inside the filter housing for anything in there as well.
Hope this helps.

My new Bosch Nexxt 500 series washer is less than 30 days old. I can turn it on any program and I can hear it initially fill with water, but it does not spin to wash or rinse. It does not have any error...

As your washer is less than 30 days old, I strongly recommend that you contact the company you purchased it from, and ask them to change it for you, under the sale of goods act, you have the right to insist upon a replacement washer.
However, before you do that, double check your handbook, and make sure it is nothing you have done wrong.
Try switching it off, and then try again to use it.
Please leave feedback.

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.

in order to determine what is the cause of your problem , please provide the error codes an model number so we can figure out what is wrong with it, has anyone set anything heavy on top of the machine if is a top load machine, first guess if you have power to the machine would be look into the lid swtich an go from there....
