  1. Hello I have looked at the common problems/troubleshooting section on this site, but the below problem appears to be a different one to those covered there. We have a Bosch washing machine which has worked well for several years. We normally use the same program, 40 degree wash which takes 1 hour 10 minutes. However, for a number of days, on this program it now: i) just washes for 1 hour 10 mins (no rinse/spin etc). The timer counts down to 0.01 ii) then continues to wash with the timer on 0.01 for about 30 minutes iii) the timer then goes to (approx) 45 minutes, and then continues to wash, spin, rinse, spin etc to 0.00, as if on a normal wash. The washing comes out fine and the machine does not display any error codes etc. The problem is that each wash now takes approx 2.5 hours, not 1 hour 10 mins!!! Any ideas? I have unplugged etc, and also tried using other programs etc to try and "reset" the machine, but no luck. Some sort of program board problem? Any thoughts/suggestions gratefully received thanks Mark
  2. What I'd like to know is - What planet do the idiots that design washing machine software come from? About the last 5 machines I've had have made me do two separate operations to do a quick wash because for some reason they think that if you only want a low temperature 30 minute wash you should only be able to spin half the water out of the clothes at the end of it. My current machine's 30' wash has a max spin of 800 rpm - Why?! It can't be to save energy or time because it just means that I have to wait for it to finish, select a separate 1400 rpm spin cycle, and then wait for that to complete... It'd probably be 'greener' if I could get hold of a good old fashioned manual one that I actually have control over the settings of. If anyone knows of a current model washing machine that doesn't treat you like an idiot that doesn't know what they want please let me know...
