Bosch Not Heating Water / Filling With Water ?


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hi all,

I've just bought a Bosch WAB28061GB - installed today & have done a couple of loads. I'm not sure that its heating the water - the door window feels cold to the touch (washing at 60 degrees). Also, as my last washer lasted 20 + years I understand that water usage is different on new machines but how can I tell if the right amount of water is being allowed to fill the machine ? I can't see any 'pool' of water in the bottom of the door window for example & no suds (even when no conditioner is being used - which I know can reduce suds).

does anyone have any thoughts or ideas on how to check these things ?

ta !

Many washers hardly use any water these days so the door glass may just not get hot. Check out my article here which might help washing machine doesn't seem to be heating the water

thanks Andy - I ran it again of a 60 degree wash & at one point when I checked the door window was warmer so I can only assume it is actually heating the water.

in terms of lack of water / suds then I suppose the difficult thing is that without another machine to compare it to there's really no way to know if it's 'right'. I'll take a look at the article - thanks.

If it's not heating, it shouldn't finish a programme and clean the laundry ok.
