Where do you put the detergent in a Bosch washer?

mskathynyDecember 24, 2011

This may be one of the dumbest questions posted but I have an explanation: we just moved into our renovated apartment (thanks GW, for tons of info in the course of the reno!) and I can't find the owner's manual for the washer. It's a Bosch WAS2016UC. I downloaded the manual from Bosch but still can't figure it out! There are three compartments in the pull-out dispenser: the left one has a "II" mark, the middle one has a sort of flower mark and the right one has "I" on it. Does anyone know where is for what? (I think the middle one is for fabric softener.) Also, can you use liquid bleach? And, if so, where does that go? (In my search for this information I've been really horrified to read about all the negatives experiences with this washer due to mold and smell. I am really hoping for the best here. The new GE OTR micro has a "broken computer panel" and the KA DW was a nightmare getting into place. I'm kind of at my wits end.) Thanks to all for any info.

I compartment = prewash detergent
II compartment = main wash detergent
* compartment = fabric softener

Thank you so much, dadoes!! You saved the day for me. (I assume you don't use bleach? Or only powdered bleach in the II compartment?) Have a lovely, clean, holiday!
