All was well with this front loader, but for some reason on the Daily Wash cycle, it now just ignores the conditioner part. It also does this if I just try an extra rinse cycle. Everything else is fine, I've had the tray out and there's no blockages.

Re: WIL103 stopped taking conditioner
Bit of a common problem, this sounds like the cold water supply not getting to the machine, test the supply from the house is working, is the machine buzzing slightly when it should be filling, if so the fault is the house supply to the washer, if the supply to the washer is fine, check the cold water solenoid for open circuit, thats about all it could be, if i have helped rate me please

Not sure if you mean when it is fully off or operating, but if you mean that once it is operating the door won't open, then the following applies...
Once a front loader wash cycle starts, the door on a front loader is physically (electronically) locked until the full cycle ends after spin dry. This is to prevent anyone opening the door and letting all the water out in the middle of the wash cycle, which a lot of people try to do to put in more clothing etc.
A quick and easy way to find out which tray is which is to pull the detergent drawer out just so that you can see into it. Start a pre-wash and see where the water runs in, then advance to the main wash and observe. Finally start a rinse cycle and where the water goes in is where the conditioner/softener goes.
In a few cases I have come across, the pre-wash tray shares with the conditioner/softener part but the pre-wash powder goes in the front and the softener in the back.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
Unfortunately you do not say the make and model but I'm going to make some suggestions anyway!
The first sounds silly but check that the washing powder IS actually going into the machine and that the whole wash, rinsing (with conditioner- which should smell nice!) and spinning cycles all complete OK. Presumable the water is getting hot enough else the machine would not continue its wash cycle.
What is left is the possibility that the waste water is not clearing the machine properly. This could be caused by the drain motor lint tray/filter being blocked. So many problems are caused by this simple little thing! In any case I would check the filter which, on front loaders (and possibly top loaders) is normally found behind the front lower panel. I would also advise cleaning this filter on a regular basis- every 3- 6 months maybe.
not long. have a Bosch Axiss WFL 2060. It started making buzzing noises starting about a year ago and I ignored them. It failed and I am replacing either the motor or/and more things. If ur a DIY its definitely less expensive than a new machine. dwkendall sends
do you use affresh to clean your front loader? deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. try this porduct out it works great on all front loaders use hot water with the affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle this also helps with any stagnant water smells also have you cleaned out your pump lately. * note remeber to put the pellet on the inside of the machine not in the soap dispenser
Don't forget that the reason you bought a front loading washer is for the efficiency of the washing. In other words, front loaders use less water and get clothes cleaner without all the harsh beating that the older agitator units do.
If you're using any of the pre-programmed wash cycles, you might want to tgry another cycle to see how it does for getting your clothes clean with a shorter cycle.
If you check your owners manual, it should provide the cycle times for the various wash and water temp settings. The colder the water you use, the longer the wash cycle typically is, since it takes more agitation and time to get clothes clean, especially with front loading machines. Hope this helps.
check if heating by putting on as hot wash and feeling the door. if no heat, check continuity thro the heater - modern heaters have a non-resettable cut-out in them which can cause problems.
no heat then no program advance
