Trouble starting Cycles

I am having trouble getting the machine started after pushing the select washer buttons.Right now the regular washer button is on and will not go off,I can keep pressing the casual button on and off rapidly and finally get it started only on that cycle, no other choice,if I press the cancel/stop button it reverts back to the regular wash button light, the stop button does not turn off all the lights. I ordered and replaced both boards, and the same problem exists. Sure would appreciate any help. thanks, Jonsey

    I really appreciate your trying to help, but that does not seem
    to work,it might if I could get the machine buttons off to start
    any cycle, as I mentioned, the regular wash button stays on, I
    don't have a choice to make a change,I tried desperately to do
    what you suggested but again nothing happens by pressing any of
    the buttons including the regular wash button that stays on.I
    can't make anything work. With both new electronic boards you
    would expect everything would be fine. Any further suggestions
    would be greatly appreciated.

Jonsey, sounds like you have a keypad issue here. Do this test: press the following keys in this order soak-cycle signal-soak-cycle signal. If done right the display should show dt. Now press start, all the led's will light up. Now test them by pressing each one, you should hear a beep for each one. If some of them are not responding, check the P-11 and P-12 harness on the control board. You can also put this machine in the automatic test mode by pressing the keypads in this order; soak-soil level-soak-soil level. The display will start counting down from 99 to 0 testing different aspects of the machine. Any errors will be shown in the display. back.

    Slats, unplug the machine for 1 minute. If it comes back the same way check the key pad ribbon connection to the board. Also check the P-11 and P-12 harness connections. If these are ok, you are going to need the touch back.

After working well for six months, my washer now expels water at random points during the wash and rinse cycles.

Check inside the fill hose for debris. There is a screen designed to block debris from getting inside the machine valve. If the screen builds up with debris the water slows down. Sounds like the water is filling too slow. Also the unit and/or the load may not be balanced causing it to stop and drain out. If it's okay then see what lights are blinking when these events occur and post here.

My bosch nexxt 100 series washer will not start. The spin, wash and finish indicator lights flash simultaneously when try to start.

Make sure dial is switched to 'off'. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. If if doesn't work, do it again.

To get the clothes out if you are having trouble, open door manually. Near the bottom of this cover is a small hole. Insert a piece of wire into this hole, and push in gently. While pushing, turn the cover clockwise, it will came off. The door release is a narrow white plastic strip hanging down on the right; Pull down on this strip while pushing in on the door, the door lock will release.

If you have a B. Crocker bcf1690 machine you need to just plug it in and it will always default to the regular bread program. To change it to whole wheat you need to press the Menu button until the whole wheat program shows on the display ( #3) according to my manual if you go past it just keep pushing the menu button until it comes back around again to #3. then just push the start button.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked.
This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons.
To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

The LOC code merely means the control responded and locked the door. You'll find a tech sheet under the top panel of the machine to help guide you thru the diagnostic process, which is fairly involved.

I know this may seem silly but - On the top right back corner of your washer hit it with medium force with your fist, this helps.
