  1. We have water left in our machine when a cycle completes. To get rid of water we put it on 15 min spin drain. We would like to know how we can avoid dping this spin drain. This happens what ever cycle we choose.

  2. How do I spin only. I am in Spain and have a Bosch machine but the handbook is I. Spanish. Is it possible to get one in English please.

    1. I choose 45mins 40degrees mix wash and put detergent powder and softener in separate compartment but during the wash softener also runs out at the end of the wash my clothes doesn’t have soft effect and no softener smells. How to keep the softener to the last wash and make my clothes smells nice.

      1. I have the same problem, best solution I found so far is to increase the ammount of softener. But we use up so much softener just to make it smell like it used to

    1. Hi Jane, You can change the volume of the information signal in the setting mode.

      1)Switch on the appliance. The settings for the current programme are displayed.
      2)Touch the control panel (service key symbol).The setting mode is activated and the displays for the information signals (bell) and the preset volume light up.

      To do this, touch + or – on the control panel until the required adjustment value for the volume of the information signals appears:

      Adjustment values:
      0) off
      1) quiet
      2) Medium
      3) loud
      4) very loud

  3. I can’t remove the filter it is stuck. Something (I can hear a metallic sound) seems to be blocking the system. How can I still manage to remove the filter?

  4. Do I have to use the wifi feather of this machine? Our laundry is in a stone outhouse and does not have internet!

  5. How do I keep the remote start on? It keeps turning remote start off after a wash and sometimes I forget to re-enable it. Kind of annoying to turn it on each time and defeats the whole point of having remote start to be honest.

  6. The machine is making very load noise on high speed spinning…the noise and loud sound is not always (some washes are just fine others have really big noise). The ground is straight and the machine is balanced and all back screws have been removed while installation therefore I am wondering what could be the reason of such noise!

  7. Manual says update is available when start/pause flashes on UPD setting. Mine flashes but pressing START does nothing. Why isn’t it doing anything if indicating update is available?

  8. Why is the washing coming out without that just washed smell – I’ve tried putting I-dos up to max setting but I’m unhappy with no lovely smell to washing like I’m used to with other machines

  9. I have had my machine for 6 months. Used around 4 times per week. I have set the drum clean reminder to ON but have never had an alert/reminder to clean. How often is this set to?

  10. My washing machine 4 weeks old. Put it on the 30 min washing sicle. Suddenly it stop with the stop/start button blinking. What can be wrong???

  11. Our machine is locked after a cycle and we can’t open the door ? Have tried numerous things but still locked tight with washing inside
