Can I put regular detergent in one compartment and wool wash/ gentle detergent in the other compartment? Is there a way to choose which one the cycle uses? Series 8 I dos machine

Hi Devora,
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch WAW32640AU.
Each cycle will only use one type of detergent. As per your user manual the other i-Dos compartment is for fabric softener. They will both be used in the one cycle if intelligent dosing is selected. The third, left compartment is for manual dosing and needs to be filled each cycle and settings would need to be adjusted to use it.
If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744.

Hi Ana,
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch WAW32640AU.
Powder detergent can be used if you put it in the large, left most compartment in the detergent drawer. You would have to make sure the intelligent dosage is off.

We have an i dos serie 8.
Can I use vinegar as a fabric softener?
If so, is it ok to be loaded and “sit” in the fabric softener compartment?
I’ve read it should be used in front loaders, but then it also says to use it to effectively clean the drum....

Really? That’s disgraceful. How about advising what the actual code means? Here we were thinking that Bush was a reliable brand.

Hi Jay, I just rang Bosch with the same issue, and they advised it is in relation to the detergent drawer. I’m going to empty mine now. Hopefully that’s all I need to do. Best of luck with your machine.

Navodi D.asked

Is it as for the machine if I put powder detergent / napisan in the manual detergent tray whilst idos / auto dosing is on ?

1 answer
Bosch Home Appliances
Bosch H.Bosch Home Appliances

Hi Navodi D.,
Thanks for the question. In regards to having powder detergent in the manual tray whilst using I-Dos, this is not recommended. The reason being is to prevent overdosing and foaming during the wash. If dosing detergent manually, do not add additional detergent to the intelligent dosage dispenser (set intelligent dosage to "off" ö).If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744. Regards, Bosch Home Australia

Hi jessjem,
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch washing machine. Usually the display flashes if the fill level of
the selected intelligent dosing dispenser is below the minimum level. However being that you have said you have filled it up it is hard to determine what the exact cause is. We'd like to see if we can help. In order to protect our customer's privacy, we're unable to discuss your personal information online.

Hi Linda C,
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch WAW32640AU Washing machine.
The Drum Clean indicator light flashes when you use have not used a programme of 60 °C or higher for a long time, if washing frequently at a low temperature (40 °C or lower) or if an odour has developed after a prolonged period of non-use.
= Run the programme without laundry.
Use washing powder or a detergent containing bleach. To prevent foaming, only use half the amount of detergent recommended by the detergent manufacturer. Do not use detergent designed for woollens or delicates.

How to spin only?

Bosch H.Bosch Home Appliances

Hi Fiona, Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch washing machine. In order to do 'spin only' on this machine, set the programme to Rinse / Spin. The Rinse Plus button is set by default for this programme. , therefore if you require a spin cycle only, press the 'rinse plus' button to deactivate the function .If you have any questions feel free to call us on 1300 369 744.  Regards, Bosch Home Australia.

penegeauasked

i have a series 8 and love it. But i'm wondering why sometimes at the end of the cottons cycle (on cold) it does a rapid beep alarm sound when the load is done. And yet other times it just beeps slowly and only once. and then again as the reminder in a min or 2).. It seems so urgent like something's wrong but no buttons are flashing other than to say its finished. I looked in the booklet too and couldn't get any answers. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
