Welbilt Bread Machine Not Baking?

The front of a bread machine.I'm not sure what's going on with my bread machine. In the past when the bread didn't rise enough, I assumed I was doing something wrong. This time, it not only didn't rise much, but the bread is not cooked enough. The paddle also baked into the bread. All the ingredients were fresh, though I did change the order I added them. Could that have caused the problem, or is there something wrong with the machine?

It does matter the order you add the ingredients in a bread machine. If the machine is truly broken, it is cheaper to just get another one from a thrift store or garage sale. I often see them given away on Freecycle.

Did you look into the machine when the dough was rising? Thats important because sometimes the dough rises too much and then collapses.


When the bread machine finishes, the loaf deceptively looks like dough didnt rise at all. If this happens, try decreasing the yeast.

I have found when I am challenged with appliances, I call the manufacturer and they are the readiest to solve my problem.

I found manual for Welbit bread maker
It says that if bread did not rise enough, then there are several possible reasons, one of which is "Ingridients were not places in the Bread Pan in the recommended order." So the order in which the ingredients are added may be the reason. Place ingridients in the recommended order.


There are other reasons as well:
1. Ingridients were not at room temperature.
Solution: Ingridients must be at room temperature.

2. Yeast did not activate.
Solution: Be certain yeast is fresh, check expiration date on the package Do not reduce the amount of sugar or sweetener called for in the recipe, do not use artificial sweetener.

3. Too much salt used inhibiting rising.
Solution: Use amount specified in the recipe.

4. High altitude.
Solution: For every 1000 feet above 3.000 feet sea level, reduce the water by 1 tabelspoon up to 4 tablespoon maximum.

If the bread collapses when baked, then it's possible because dough rose unevently.
Solution: Make sure water is no warmer than room temperature (75 to 80F). The flour is very absorbent and absorbs moisture from the air during periods of excessive humidity. If dough is too sticky, the bread can collapse. Reduce the water or liquid in the recipe by up to 4 tablespoons. Let appliance knead for 1 to 2 minutes. If the dough appears too dry, add additional water 1 tablespoon at a time, up to 3 tablespoons.
