Question about Bosch Washing Machines

Open Question

What is a SOAKING AGENT mentioned in the manual for Bosch washing machine. Is SOAKING AGENT same as detergent? So do you put some detergent in that receptacle, and some more detergent in the left receptacle? I have a Bosch Axxis ELF 2050. I just put the detergent in the left receptacle, with a warm water setting. Not even lightest stain is removed!! Am I supposed to add A SOAKING AGENT too? And what on earth is that? I miss my Maytag! Simple and great!

I had the same problem, and it turns out that it is NOT the seal. It is the liquid fabric softener. The fabric softener dispenser needs to be cleaned periodically or it gets a black waxy, goopy, build up. It is this same buildup that ends up staining your clothes with dark brown or black stains. Just remove the dispenser and wash it our very well and the problem will be gone.

Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Be prepared for water, drain out from drain hose. Check filter for clogging, clean out. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes (at terminal end of motor), if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.

Where do you pour bleach


The detergent dispenser draw where you put in the detergent has 3 sections.The compartment on the far right is for soaking agents. The compartment on the far left is for wash and stain removers (like bleach). The middle compartment is for fabric softeners, fabric conditioners.

We have a Bosch Classixx washing machine which infrequently stains quite badly items in the wash. Have made sure it is cleaned frequently


pull back door seal lip as far as it will go and you will find grey scum underneath this will stain your laundry during wash need to manually wipe out and put on 90 degree wash with biological detergent anything less wont touch it.

Machine won't spin


When washing does the unit rotate in both directions ? If NO, the problem (likely) is the motor/brushes. If YES, insure you're not overloading or using non-HE detergent or more commonly refered to as "regular" detergent/soap. (soap is a very bad thing for these front load units).

Cleaning agent placement


From left to right as you see.
1 This is for your frontloader soap powder or other detergent.
2 Fabric conditioner or softener. If this is too thick, mix with water to prevent clogging.
3 Detergent for soaking agent. I dont see 'bleach' anywhere

There is an panel, front bottom right which holds your pump filter, unscrew to clean out. But wait. Plug off the mains.
You will see a hose on the left, this is if your water in the tub cannot drain, you can drain it here. Your tub can hold upto 20 litres/4.4 gals.so have a suitable container to collect; carefully remove cap to drain out. Reason why it doesn't drain is because there is a block in your pump (right side) which you must clear.
To keep your pump from probs (a tip which you seldom see) empty all pockets of clothes before putting into machine. I have a non electronic Philco which i dont remember cleaning with hotwash or anything, 10years +

For exteriors do not use solvents or steel wool. Only hot soapy water with a mild non-abrasive cleaning agent, dry with soft towel.

Above should be useful. Pl rate.............

Detergent dispenser


As far as I am aware, there IS NO dispenser for bleach, you have to put bleach in drum before adding clothes and starting cycle. The far right compartment is only for "pre-wash" cycles, and if no pre-wash is selected, water will run through ALL compartments at the rinse stage..... Oshie
