    I have a BOSCH WFK 2401 washer. The press-botton "start" is not working now. I have to keep pressing it in order to keep the mechine working. If I don't, the machine will stop working immediately. Can I get someone to fix it? How much it costs? A friend tole me that the part is out of work, and it would spend about $300.00 dollars to buy a new one. If it is that expensive, probably I have to buy a new one. But that one has to match my dryer. My dryer is BOSTON WTA 3500 and WTL5400. Where I can find a washer that matches with my dryer if I can't get it fixed. Thank you very much!

I can help , If the unit is leeting water in with the power off the only thing it can be is the water inlet valve , it is the componet you connect your water line to under the unit behind the front lower panel. Tell me if you have any other questions and let me know how this works out.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.


Based on your description it sounds like a faulty door lock mechanism. As you may or may not already know the 06 error code for the WFK2401 Bosch washer indicates an error in the lock has been detected.

This is from the Bosch service tips I have, so you should be able to check it with this info...

I also have this available to you in "pdf" and I can send you if you want to provide an email address since the "pdf" cannot be attached or sent via these post's.

You can also run a self diagnostic/test program by following these steps I've laid out, then let me know what you find...I suspect a faulty lock as I alluded to though.

To enter test program for WFK 2401 washers:


1) Set cycle knob to any "X" (reset) position


2) Press and hold Pre-Wash and Start buttons at the same time. While still holding Pre-Wash and Start buttons, turn unit on by pressing On/Off button.

3) Keep holding Pre-Wash and Start buttons (only) until digital display comes on (~ 5 seconds).


**HINT: Turning washer off at any time will end test program**

When test program has been entered:


Start light will flash

Digital display will show 00 for no faults or will show fault codes below:

Let me know what you find as I said or if you require further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa for your repair inquiry and good luck

please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)
