Josephine, Hi. I too went looking for that option, but it appears to me that we don't have this function, which is somewhat problematic.
Would love someone to tell me that I am wrong....

Hi is there a way to reduce the cycle time to less than an hour but still have full wash, rinse and spin functions. Quite often clothes are not that soiled and I would love to know how to set a cycle to 40 minutes, if possible

No bosch, you create an email to socialmedai.au@bshg.com and quote bsh11483 and then sort it out for Karlene! Its your problem to sort out already. This was an arrogant response from customer service, outsourcing their job to the customer.

You put it in the left hand open space of the detergent drawer. Also push the button that allows you to adjust the auto detergent amount used until it is not lit up.

How to add washing powder manually

Bosch H.Bosch Home Appliances

Hi Janis M,
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch Washing Machine.
Your washing machine has an intelligent dosing system for liquid detergent and fabric softener. The washing machine doses your detergent and fabric softener automatically in most programmes.
You can change the settings for automatic detergent dosage before the programme starts. Please follow the correct selection of detergent on page 29 of your user manual when manually adding detergent. If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744.

Serie 8 WAW28420AU

Hi, I thought if I put pre-wash powder in compartment (I), this would be used on a pre-wash, then for the main wash, compartment (II) would be used. I assume the model of washer I have doesn't do a separate pre-wash cycle, as both compartments are flushed out in the first water fill? Shouldn't a pre-wash cycle be a basic washing machine function these days?

Hi Trail B,
Thanks for your question.
Prewash programs are for Cottons or easy care Program with prewash; divide the detergent between
compartments I and II.

Hi,

Just wondering what the time of the inbuilt rinse setting is on the cottons program? And I am also wondering is both the inbuilt Prerinse and wash are both done and the set temperature, for example 60degs?

Many thanks,

Great machine however, at the end of a cycle it beeps four times, slight pause then beeps four times again. No error code is shown and it never use to do it. The manual says nothing about this - can someone please explain it.

@Bosch - disappointing you can't be bothered to reply here. Was a legitimate concern that wasn't captured in your manual.

Serie 8 WAW28441AU

Hi my Bosch 28441AU seems to be washing longer then the programme says eg 45minutes go for 1hr and i also washed a blanket which went for 1 1/2 instead of 45min.
My other problem is I never got a manual and its quite annoying to have to look up a problem on the computer rather than quickly refer to a manual can I get one from somewhere or get on sent out.

Kassasked

Serie 8 WAW28620AU

I’ve had my machine about 18 months now after 25 year with a front loader and love it. It is quite, quick and cleans well. I didn’t think I’d use the idos when I bought it but I can’t go without it now. My only issue is that it flattens and twists the pile of my bath towels (which my top loader never did) so I need to pop them in the dryer for a quick spin before I hang them out to dry. Also does not filter out hair(human not pet) which I find on the floor when I’m placing clothes on my drying racks. Is there a lint filter somewhere I need to clean.

Hi, we have recently bought BOSCH WAW28420 AU front loader, paid for additional 3-year warranty through product care.
We installed the machine on 31 August 2020 and have noticed that water gets accumulated in the front seal and does not drain properly or dry (even keeping the door open). We called Harvey Norman and told them our concern of mold/fungus/odour overtime were advised that this is a common problem with BOSCH. The company's technician will charge $160 as call out fee (payable if they think that this is not a fault). Now we bought this machine online due to COVID 19 and were never advised about water drainage problem and have taken reasonable care having paid for additional warranty as well.
Is this really true that we need to pay for $160 as call out charges for a diagnosis (within 14 days of installation) considering we bought a reputed brand equipment and it is with in a 2 year manufacturer's warranty
