      1. The display says “end” and is remaining locked. Tried holding down start but just keeps beeping. How can I unlock it?

        1. have just used the washer on super quick when finished I put the control back yo off the door will not open the model is WAN28281GB just had it delivered this morning the old BOSCH machine has been fantastic for many years without any problems to operate would you please send instructions for any problems with this machine

  1. I cannot work out how I can operate the Spin only programme. I hade put washing on the darl wash programme and the washing was left too wet to dry.

    1. How do I set the machine on a spin only program? Bosch series 6
      Please can you email me a copy of the operating instructions ( mines gone missing)

  2. I’d like to know if there’s a pre-wash option with this model. The manual is not specific and refers to the (absent) Supplementary sheet to the operating instructions…

    1. Alexandra Alexandropoulou

      Could you advise how to continue a program when accidentally stopped. My children tend to turn the program buttons to another program when the machine is washing and soap/water is still in the machine. (Half-way)
      Is there a way to get the machine continue the program, rather than restarting?

      1. Unfortunately, if you change the program to another, you can’t go back to the middle of the previous one. Use Child Lock, then the buttons will not respond.

    2. You’re quite right about instructions they don’t tell you enough clearly we had to go on You Tube to be able to work things out

    1. HI, fault E18 means:

      Drainage hose blocked or kinked


      “Clean filters in the water supply hose. Attention: The leaking water may be very hot (risk of scalding). Set programme selector to . Pull out the mains plug. Check whether the drainage hose has been installed without kinks. Loosen hose clip on the siphon, carefully remove drainage hose (residual water). Clean drainage hose and siphon spigot. Hold drainage hose in a bucket and select the programme. Connect drainage hose to the siphon and check for leaks.”

  3. Does not use softener from middle draw or dumps in at beginning of wash. Tried on cotton and mixed load settings. Please help

  4. What are the total depth sizes including door.
    The space in the kitchen allows maximal 59 mm otherwise we would not be able to close the doors.

  5. I have an E18 fault. I am draining the machine of water but how do I check if there is debris blocking the tubes. The knob inside is incredibly difficult to turn and does not come out. Should it?

  6. Hi my washing machine is 6 months old and it’s banging and rocking lad mad I’ve tried to level it up the several times what could be the problem are the shock absorbers way to change

  7. Hi, my machine has a quick wash setting of 15/30 mins, it only lets me go from 30 mins and not 15, trying to set the time means it’s goes up from 30 mins to 1 hour, 2 hour and so on. How can I set it to a 15 minute wash?

    1. Close the rinse/spin cycle. Then press the aquaplus button on the digital display to turn off the rinse and it will just spin.

  8. what is the best programme for say washing an adult towelling dressing gown with a couple of bath towels and secondly a double duvet cover, double sheet and 4 pillow cases. The manual is not helping!! NEVER BEEN NERVOUS OF USING A MACHINE BEFORE… second wash I did..i got it all wrong and had to get the engineer out!!

  9. Christine Annette BAXBY

    What are the step by step instructions for setting the NIGHTWASH programme please. I seem to be doing something wrong and would like to know what…. I put the clothes in…., set the temperature and spin speed….. then i set the finish in time…. and press start. Is this correct or am I missing something. Any help would be appreciated.
