Remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes, if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.

F21 flashing on my bosch classixx 6 1200 express


F21 is a motor fault and in some cases can also involve a module fault. It could be as simple as the brushes need replacing or the drum has been severely out of balance.

Reset pcb bosch classixx 1200 express


There is no reset as such, if the motor shorted when the motor brushes went there is a good chance that it blew the motor tracking or relay on the board. Sometime this is indicated by F20 or F21. Unfortunately this will be a new board. You could try to run a motor test as follows:
Hold in the start button while turning the dial one click to the left (30 easycare) wait until the display shows 888 or two indicators light up next to dial.
Release start and turn dial to 60 cotton (WITHOUT GOING THRO THE OFF).
Press start
This should start a motor test
slow turn one way, slow turn the other, pump on then up to full spin.
(some machines will show the rpm on the display).
If this does not work, you probably need to change the module aswell.
Best of luck

Bosch Classixx 1200 Express replaced worn brushes correctly, now motor doesnt turn. Motor got extremely hot and was popping and sparking prior to brush replacement. Is there a thermal cut out on the motor?...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I know that it's not exactly what you were hoping to hear/see but what follows is my (pre-typed) advice to others about washer motors possibly failing. I will understand if you do not wish to score this.

---------------
It does sound as if the motor requires replacement.
Now, a word or two of advice; it might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the com, often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor (and belt) on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Drum not working on bosch washing machine


I would say that the brushes want replacing in the motor, access to the motor is by removing the rear panel, remove the belt, and undo screws securing motor, remove motor, brushes are located at rear end of motor.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks

Bosch classixx 1200 fills, drains, but won't wash ?


This a classic example of worn brushes in the motor.
To check , remove rear panel, remove drive belt.
Unplug motor lead, undo 2 screws that secure motor, and lever motor back with a screwdriver or similar.
Keep hold of the motor as you lever it back.
You will find the brushes at the terminal end of the motor, replace if less than 4=5 mm in length.
Refit motor belt and motor plug.Test. before you refit panel
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Bosch Classixx 1200 Express wont spin!!!! HELP


Make sure that all the water has drained from the washer, if it has a filter, remove and clean, it is located behind a removable plastic panel at the front of the m/c, if it still does not spin, suggest you remove motor and check the brushes for wear, this is often the reason it won't spin, but will wash o/k.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

Brushes


I just did this and had to take the motor off because I couldn't get to one of the brushes. It was easy to get off (only 2 bolts) and just as easy to put back on. Taking the motor off made life much easier as fitting the brushes is fiddly.
