HI Most washing machine timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.

Step 1: Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.

Changed the element in my bosch washing machine and still trips the electric ,can i wash on a cold wash without tripping the electric.


In the washing machine your hot water supply comes from your water heater. The element that is tripping is part of your electrical so no you cannot expect a different result. You will have to fix the problem first before you wash.

Bosch exxcel 1400s express is the drum stainless steel


It is simple to tell what the drum is made of: if it is silvery metal-like finish, then it is stainless steel. It cannot be aluminum because the aluminum would not withstand the abrasive and detergent chemical action . It would also not be chrome or chrome finish.
If it is normal steel, it must be porcelain coated since porcelain can take the abuse necessary and also protect the steel from eroding. Porcelain will (of course) be white or grey paint-like finish. It could be a poly/pvc/plastic drum but this hopefully would be obvious and of course would also be white.
Many model come as an option of porcelain steel or stainless steel and the model number is the same except for one digit. I will assume your 's' digit stands for stainless, in either case, the silver metallic finish is the determining clue. Macgivor

My Bosch Exxcel 1400S Express (WFX148SGB) just doesn't spin anymore. Everything else seems to work fine?


Bummers. Sounds like the clutch is out. (If you can hear the motor spinning but not the drum, I'd say that's it. Especially if the machine has a number of years on it.)

I once looked into having a service man come fix a clutch. He said it would be cheaper to buy and new washing machine and have the old one hauled away.

Good luck.

Bosch excell 1200 express front loading washing machine


The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. You have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, it should be replaced. Good luck!
