To soak clothes in a Bosch front load washing machine, follow these simple steps:
1. Sort your clothes: Separate your clothes based on color and fabric type. This will prevent any color bleeding or damage to delicate fabrics during the soaking process.
2. Fill the machine with water: Start by adding the desired amount of water to the washing machine drum. The water level should be enough to fully submerge the clothes you want to soak.
3. Add detergent or soaking agent: Depending on the type of stains or dirt on your clothes, you can add a small amount of detergent or a soaking agent specifically designed for soaking clothes. Follow the instructions on the product label for the correct amount to use.
4. Place the clothes in the machine: Carefully place the clothes you want to soak into the water-filled drum. Make sure all the clothes are fully submerged and not crammed together to ensure effective soaking.
5. Set the soaking time: Most Bosch front load washing machines have a soak or pre-wash cycle option. Select this option and adjust the soaking time according to your needs. Typically, a soaking time of 30 minutes to an hour is sufficient for most fabrics.
6. Start the cycle: Once you have set the soaking time, start the washing machine cycle. The machine will agitate the water gently to ensure the clothes are thoroughly soaked and the detergent or soaking agent penetrates the fabric.
7. Drain and rinse: After the soaking cycle is complete, the washing machine will drain the water. You can then proceed to rinse the clothes by selecting a rinse and spin cycle or manually draining and rinsing them.
8. Dry the clothes: Once the soaking and rinsing process is complete, remove the clothes from the washing machine and hang them to dry or transfer them to a dryer if suitable for the fabric.
Remember to always refer to the user manual of your specific Bosch front load washing machine for any additional instructions or features it may have.
