Hi Clara,
Thanks for your question regarding the Bosch range.
There are a number of differences which to can view via https://www.bosch-home.com.au/products/page_rep_product_compare. They are both from the current range but the WAY32891AU is our Home Professional model which is top of the line and has extra features our other washing machines don't have.

Thanks Kaz, so there is no coating on the stainless steel? There are a few different types of stainless that is all.

Bosch H.Bosch Home Appliances

Hi Lesli,
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch WAW28620AU.
There is no coating as far as we are advised. As long as you use chlorine-free cleaning agents and don't use steel wool there should be no side effects. If there are odors in the washing machine, or to clean the drum you can run the Drum Clean 90C program without laundry and only adding washing powder.

Serie 8 WAW28620AU

We are interested in buying a Bosch WAW28620AU machine with i-DOS. We only use a certain brand of powder detergent. Does i-DOS only work with liquid detergent? Are there any issues or concerns in using powder only with this machine (perhaps even without any fabric softener)? Perhaps the i-DOS feature is irrelevant (for powder detergents) and perhaps another model would be more appropriate. Please advise. Thanks, Peter

The idos compartment only takes liquid. You would have to switch off the idos feature and use the big manual compartment on the left for powder.
I don’t use fabric softener. So mine stays empty.
If you don’t want idos, I would pick a machine without it so your not always switching off this feature.

Bosch Home Appliances
Bosch H.Bosch Home Appliances

Hi Peter W ,
Thanks for your question regarding your Bosch WAW28620AU Washing Machine, the I-DOS function works with liquid only. We recommend any of our Bosch Washing Machines that do not support this feature if you are wanting to use powder detergent only. If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744.

Hi Dee, Thanks for your question. Aqua stop is an electrical controlled water valve that shuts the water inlet down , this is part of the flood safety system that operates when a leak is detected within the appliance. Aqua secure is an inlet hose that is mechanical device , it detects a leaking connection at the tap only. If we can be of any help to you feel free to call us on 1300 369 744.

What washing machine cycle do you use for towels ? thankyou Wendy

Bosch Home Appliances
Bosch H.Bosch Home Appliances

Hi,
Thanks for the question regarding your Bosch WAW28620AU.
The cycle to use would be dependent on the fabric and amount of soiling. In general the cottons cycle is good for the most part.
If you need any more help, feel free to contact us on 1300 369 744.

Kaz
Kaz

Either cottons, which can take the full 9kg worth or automatic which can take 6kg. I don’t use the fabric softener so just put vinegar in the manual dispenser at the start of the cycle. Both settings use higher temperatures if you prefer to use hot water for your towels. Automatic is stuck on 40 degrees whereas you can adjust your temp from 90 with cottons.

They barely use any soap. Even selecting 3 bars. I used to use way too much detergent in my old one. Bosch uses less water so you need less soap. Are there no suds during the wash cycle?

Troy H.

Hi Kaz
Thanks for your reply it has a few bubbles not sudsy and your right about next to no water. Going to swap from cold power liquid to dynamo liquid as I have seen a few blogs about that being the better soap for the machine.

This appliance has the option to reduce the spin speed or not have a spin cycle at the end of the program at all. This would cause the items to come out dripping wet so please keep that in mind.

The drum for those two appliances are the same size. The difference in the capacity is due to other factors such as the programs and other materials in the appliances.

Hi Angie,
I don't see why not. Although I haven't used it, I have used bleach and fabric softeners. I have also used oxyclean on sheets prior to putting them in the machine. And logically speaking, if we put dirty clothes with whatever stains are on them, we are introducing foreign substances into the machine. I hope this helps! Thanks Susan

Hi Vonnie, This is one of the benefits of this washing machine. By way of example, if it rains after you have hung your washing out, just use the spin cycle to get them less wet and rehang them to dry. If you are new to the machine, try different cycles to get familiar with it and find out which ones are best for your needs. I love the 15 minute cycle along with the options within it. So quick to wash clothing and sheets!

Bosch recommends using Omo liquid detergent.

RCFasked

Serie 8 WAW28620AU

How can I know if the i-DOS system is dispensing detergent? The i-DOS light is on, the setting is at 50ml per wash, but the liquid in the dispenser is at much the same level as it was a month ago after we started using the machine (WAW28620AU). The water only looks slightly bubbly when the machine is filling, but not sudsy.

Hi Rosie,
You can fine tune the auto dosing feature up to 3 different settings, see manual. The self dosing system operates a small motor which you can hear operating. Sometimes if you are using a very thick liquid detergent combined with cold weather, the pickup motor (one motor is located in the detergent section of the tray and one in fabric softener side of tray) on the dispenser can get blocked. It may look like caked up detergent around the bottom of the motor.
See manual regarding cleaning process involved with self dosing dispenser tray, it’s straight forward just need to make sure you carefully read instructions and not wet components not designed to get wet.
We changed our detergent to liquid Omo it’s been fantastic! No problem at all and great wash results.
You should routinely clean idos dispenser tray (approx. every 6months or as needed)
It’s a great system and only uses the amount of detergent really needed, so don’t be too concerned about a lack of bubbles during washing cycles it’s quiet common not too have many bubbles.
Happy cleaning.

Thank you for your suggestions and advice Dan. Will check that the dispenser motor is not blocked, and have Omo lined up for the next refill.

I dilute my liquid OMO 3 parts omo to 1 part water before putting it in the iDos dispenser . Read or saw this somewhere online when I was learning about this machine. Clothes come out clean, not too many suds and I only have the setting on 2 bars. Only time I use 3 is for very soiled gardening clothes and the like.

Please refer to your manual on page 44. Fabric softener should be inserted into the compartment with the flower symbol displaying.

Hi Bosch support,
Page 44 and 45 is about the Idos function and where to put fabric softener. Page 47 is about manual dosing of detergent. There is no mention of manual dosing of fabric softeners. I do not want fabric softener sitting in the IDos compartment as I rarely use it and it will dry out. Can anybody help me with an answer. Is this a flaw or oversight in the design. How do others overcome this.
Please help.

Hey Kass,

Good question actually. I am also curious now so I will have to go home later and try and figure it out. I have a feeling manual dosing on softener may not be possible. I would recommend you read the manual to find any reference (maybe that information sits somewhere or maybe not).

I'll see what I can find on Google Search. Maybe someone has asked this somewhere on some forum before as your requirement would be quite common.
