    Thanks. Carbon brushes was the problem. Got local guy in to fix. Cost £45. Now up and running. Didn't get the commutator checked though. Does that usually fail at the same time as the brushes. If so is it easy to fix?

It sounds very much like the carbon brushes in the drive moter. the best way is to remove the motor and then you can also check the commutator for wear as well. model no and serial no needed to get spares, sometimes moter type.

I've a 97 bosch wff2000, washes, drains but will NOT spin either after main wash, rinse nor does it do the final spin. Had it from new, so definately can't complain. I've just replaced brushes...

Try disconnecting the small bore hose from the pressure chamber it could be the switch has stuck in the on position in which case the pressure chamber is blocked (the chamber is at the other end of the small bore hose )

My WFF2000 machine will not drain or spin. Can you help?

If the washer does not drain, then it will not spin anyway.
Sounds like a blocked filter.
It should be located at the bottom front right of washer./Unscrew anti-cloickwise to remove and clean, if this does not cure it, then the pump itself could be faulty.

No user's manual for Bosch WFF2000


Give this a try! This might be just what you're looking for, but unfortunately, there isn't a model number provided for the download.

If that doesn't give you what you're looking for, go to the link below and enter in your information and Bosch will contact you directly and should be able to provide a link for a downloadable (free) manual for your washer.

Another possible source, although I've not used them before is the following link. You'll need to provide your information for them to send you an email, but not sure if the provide free manuals, or charge a small fee for their service. There is no cost to at least enter in the search parameters to find out.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Drum is sparking when spinning the clothes

Sounds to me as though the main drum bearings have gone and the drum is catching the internal parts.
I f the drum is turned by hand and it feels rough or is noisy, then it is the main bearings.
