Bosch Various Perfect Inadequate Quick Wash Solutions

Recommended Posts

Hi. My elderly parents (with incontinence issues) have just bought a Bosch WAQ283S1GB vario perfect. Problem is the quick wash only seems to run for 15 minutes which seems very short to achieve reasonable results. My mother also finds the controls and settings very confusing.

I'm hoping I can find a simple way for her to set a quick wash that will cover all contingencies with a short cycle of 30 minutes or so?

Has anybody had the same problem and found a solution?

A quick wash cycle taking only 15 minutes is a gimmick, useless for most people. Maybe if you'd worn a shirt for 3 or 4 hours but just wanted to freshen it up it might be ok but any laundry that is dirty needs a proper wash. Unfortunately all modern washing machines take a long time to wash compared with older ones. If laundry is lightly soiled I would try option buttons such as half load and economy wash but if soiled though incontinence issues a quick wash would be very inappropriate. I would use the proper wash cycle as indicated on their wash labels for that.

Sorry, I'm a little late with this one.

Bosch Varioperfect should have a button called "vario speed" or "speed perfect". This can be used on any of the cottons cycles to reduce the wash time to around 1 hour - 1 hour 20 mins. Your folks should be fine using cottons 40 for clothes and cottons 60 for sheets and towels. If there's anything with, errm, unpleasant stains on, I would recommend going higher for hygiene.
