Why won't my Bosch nextt 100 series washer add water to to rinse?

First you must check water in drum. If is inside drum water than could be problem with drain water. If is not, than is problem in phase "intake water". In this case could be problem with electro-valve for rinsing cycle or wiring between valve and programmer or electronic depending of appliances and finally electronic or programmer.

When washing heavily soiled loads, do not overload your washer in order to assure good cleaning results.

To add a forgotten item:
1. Press the Power button.
2. Press the Start/Pause
3. Wait for the door lock light to go out (Immediately).
4. Add the item, close the door, and press the Start/Pause
The door safety state continues for 15 seconds and the cycle is restarted.
ensure thorough cleaning,
Try washing bedding, towels, undergarments,
contact using the ActivFresh
1. Load your washer.
2. Close the door.
Push the laundry into the drum completely to prevent the laundry from being caught in the door or
....... from falling out of the drum.
3. Press the Power button.
4. Add detergent and additives to the dispenser (page 20-21).
5. Select the appropriate cycle and options for the load (page 14-16).
6. Press the Start/Pause
7. The Wash Indicator light will illuminate.
8. The estimated cycle time will appear in the display.
The time may fluctuate to better indicate the time remaining in the cycle.
The actual time required for a cycle may differ from the estimated time in the display depending on the
water pressure, water temperature, detergent, and laundry.
9. Before your washer starts to fill, it will make a series of clicking noises to check the door lock and do a
quick drain.
When the cycle is complete, the door lock light will go out and "End" will appear in the display.

DO NOT attempt to open the door until the door lock light is off. To add a forgotten item, see
"Loading your washer" section (page 13).

When your washer is restarted after a pause, expect a delay of up to 15 seconds before the cycle

Pressing Power button cancels the cycle and stops your washer.

The pre wash, wash, rinse and spin indicator lights will illuminate during those portions of the cycle

Trying to drain washer for move

Good Afternoon Jennifer, thank you for allowing me to assist you. I have located generic instructions on how to drain your washer, please follow the steps below:

1 Turn off water supply faucets.

2 Disconnect hoses from water supply and drain water from hoses.

3 Plug electrical cord into a properly grounded electrical outlet.

4 Add 1 gallon (3.8 L) nontoxic recreational vehicle (RV) antifreeze to empty wash drum. Close door.

5 Select the Spin Only cycle. Press Start and let the washer drain for 1 minute to drain out all the water.
(Not all of the RV antifreeze will be expelled.)

6 Press Cancel, unplug electrical power cord, dry off drum interior and close door.

7 Remove dispenser drawer. Drain any water in compartments and dry compartments. Replace drawer.

8 Store washer in an upright position.

9 To remove antifreeze from washer after storage, perform Clean System Cycle as described earlier.

I hope this information helps to some degree. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

Washer Control Locked blinking and won't washer won't work

Water still in the bottom of the drum. Empty, clean filter and check pump is turning. Once pressure switch is satisfied no water is left it'll allow the door to open, assuming the door interlock is still ok.

You can hear water behind the drum when you spin

I don't believe you have a problem with your washer. It is NORMAL to have residual water in the drain lines and drain pump following a wash cycle. You will be able to hear the water sloshing around if you move the drum or drain lines. This is the lowest point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket inside the drum, and the washer is properly draining during the wash and rinse cycles, you have nothing to worry about.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

High speed drum rinse ..drum not spinning during rinse cycle

Clean out coin collector thoroughly. Replace drain pump if necessary. Water will drain if you can place drain hose on floor and let water siphon out.
