Question about Bosch Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Bosch WFK 2401 keeps giving me the 03 error message, the pump looks fine when I drain it manually (which takes 1/2 and hour!, now I don't bother draining it completely, I just drain a bit of water from the hose, put the machine on drain, then rinse and spin and it's fine? But this stopping is really getting old..

Hi there,

the 03 error message is the machine not sensing the water level. since you can drain using the pump manually, check the water level switch, as it may be faulty.

Our Bosch WFK 2401 keeps filling with hot water - even when a cold cycle is selected.


The problem is the water inlet valve has failed. Although it is only the cold water the whole valve needs to be replaced. There are 2 solenoids on the valve 1 for cold 1 for hot the cold water solenoid has failed. The reason it works in the softner is it uses a separate solenoid to let water in there.
