Excellent Machine! Very impressive.

Bosch replaced my Series 8 Front Loading Machine (Model: WAW32640AU) with a brand new Bosch HomeProfessional WAY32891AU under warranty. Absolutely great to deal with on a warranty level.

This new unit is fantastic, the clothes come out amazingly clean much the same as the WAW32640AU. The i-DOS does a great job of keeping my detergent costs reasonable while still making sure the clothes are clean. It's extremely quiet, even on a 1600rpm spin.

HomeProfessional WAY32891AU

The manual is unclear when it comes to doing a wool wash. I put a wool wash detergent in the iDos that normally holds fabric softener, then I changed the use from fabric softener to detergent. When wool wash mode is selected, the iDos does not light up to show that the iDos is working. When the machine was first installed, the wool wash automatically selected the fabric softener bin and the flower lighted up. The flower is meant to signify fabric softener, which I don’t want for wool. What are the step by step instructions for washing wool garments using automatic dosing of the wool wash liquid detergent.

Wool and Down cycles don't apparently use detergent. So I throw some into the washing directly.

Hi, I purchased the WAY32891AU from Appliance Online about a month ago and was checking the manual to see how I can access the additional programs.
On closer inspection I noticed the image on the website shows a ‘Towel’ program on the main dial under Shirts.

My machine does not have Towel feature at all on the main dial or under the Additional Programs.

Also, looking at the manual I don’t have the following programs: Lingerie, Kidswear, Outdoor, Down Wear, Outdoor/Waterproofing and Sportswear.

I called Appliance Online and they were confused about the image showing something different to what’s on the actual machine.

Hopefully I haven’t purchased a older model.

Regards,

Jess

Hi, The Towel program is on page 34 of the manual. You select it on the dial using Additional Programs and then scrolling through on the menus to find it (see page 27 of the manual)

Hi,

On the wool program the machine deactivates detergent and activate softener dispensing while it should deactivate the softener dispenser as it is bad for wool. Any idea?

Cheers,
Adam

Hi Adam,
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch washing machine.
The appliance is acting normally. The middle compartment can be filled with fabric softener for normal loads or for special detergent as required, for the woolen load.
If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744.
Regards,

After a bit troubleshooting and looking at the manual, I found that when the wool program is selected, softener can be disabled. The detergent cannot be disabled. Turned softener off and all working as expected. The manual is a bit confusing. A big company like Bosch should spend a bit of money some sort of virtual reality manual for a machine with that price tag.

Cheers,
Adam
