Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer

My front loader Bosch washing machine is not draining in the fabric softener section.

    I have the same issue. I have tried running without softener &, after a few loads, it does appear to be just water in the fabric softener tray. I will try pulling out the tray to see if there are any clogs, but I will also try calling Bosch as we too are still under warranty.

    Thank you!

I had the same issue. I cleaned everything but the softener compartment did not completely empty by the end of the wash.
While service was here he was told to set the front legs of the washer so that it tilted a little backward. Front higher than the rear of the machine. Only about a few degrees. This did allow the dispenser to fully empty. I still believe that the underlying problem is a somewhat restricted inlet solenoid but I will see how this works for now.

    Just had this problem fixed. It requires a new cold water valve which probably gets clogged over the years. Softener compartment fills very fast now and easily empties.

Make sure it is the fabric softener that is not being added. Try running w/o fabric softener and see if the tray is still full. The reason I am asking is that after I run my washer the fabric softener tray is full, with water, not softener. The factory tells me it is because the water fill nozzles have realigned and overspray into the softener tray. Not a big problem, since my system is under warranty I am having them fix the nozzles and then I will know how to redirect.
If it is the softener that is not being added then check to make sure the line is not clogged. You can lift out the bleach / softener try and check for cloggs.

Water in slot for fabric softener wont drain. Always water in there. Lameez SA Jan2014


Remove the dispenser draw and wash it all out. The most likely cause is that fabric softener has congealed and blocked the dispenser. I hate what softeners do to machines with a vengeance. I would never put any fabric softener anywhere near my machine ever. They cause many problems that are not easily remedied.
