Washing Machine Help!

Both myself and a friend are having the same problems with our washing machines.
Mine is Bosch, 2 years old, my friends is Siemens 4 months old.
The problem is, the fabric conditioner is not being taken when rinsing, so when the cycle has finished, the fabric conditioner is still in the drawer compartment. The washing powder is going into the wash fine.
We both use Calgonite with every wash.
Any suggestions?
Thanks Sandra

Re: Washing Machine Help!

You're wasting your money using Calgonite with every wash!! Chaper to get a replacement part when the element gets too furred up!! Check that the conditioner outlet hasn't got blocked up with conditioner.

Re: Washing Machine Help!

Yes contact a washing machine engineer, they are not expensive here.(ask your supplier). Siemens I presume is under G'tee. maybe yours too? we had probs with ours, got the spot shop to arrange engineers, İt was fixed for nothing under the terms of G'tee.

Re: Washing Machine Help!

good tip . put in soda crystals once a month on a hot wash with empty machine.it cleans the machine for a fraction of the peice of calgon.

Re: Washing Machine Help!

Thanks KKOB, I am putting conditioner into right compartment, but it is worth pointing out!
I have given both the drawer and shell of the drawer a good clean out too, but still to no avail. Will buy some soda crystals and try that from now on. Looks like a call to engineer is in order then :-( Good practise for my Turkish I suppose!

Re: Washing Machine Help!

siemens and bosch are the same machine.Take the draw right out and remove the bit in the conditioner side and clear out the hole, then fill the container and see if it syphons out.If it does then look at the hole in the top of the soap dispenser,get a brush and clear any old soap powder from the jets.try this 1st before you call somebody out. Dave.

I had this prob with my machine in the UK which was indesit...

good point by tracey and dave, take drawer out and wash the water jet above where the drawer goes..

from experience though, is the machine spinning ok? if it isnt, then something (sock or undies etc) has passed the filter bit at the bottom and is stuck in hose under machine...

now i watched our repair man doing it, turn machine on its side..where the hose meets the front of machine going into the filter, need a pair of plyers to open the jubilee type clip (can be tricky..) open the clip, take off hose, insert plyers or fingers, hey presto, your best thong ripped to shreds inside that hose... remove said item, replace hose and jubilee clip, turn machine around, back to normal apart from the undies!!

Re: Washing Machine Help!

Thanks, I will try Dave's advice first before calling out an engineer.

Mavi, yes my machine is spinning fine, I have checked the filter at the bottom of the machine, not much there at all. And, I really dont think I am able to turn machine on its side and do the acrobatics that your engineer did!

Re: Washing Machine Help!

Well, I have given in and today called in the engineers to my washing machine. The service, as usual here, was superb. Went into shop at lunchtime, they said an engineer would come between 6-7pm, but he turned up at 5pm. What a service!
He is coming back on Wednesday as it does now need a new part, and was also saying something about soda!
My next question now is - What is soda crystals in Turkish? I will have a look this weekend in the supermarket, then I can start using them monthly as recommended by Biggles, when my new part is all fitted.
Thanks everyone
Sandra
