My cabrio washing machine want start


start with Activating the service diagnostic modes. You can start with the cycle selector knob at any position.

  1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off).
  2. Perform the following sequence of movement using the cycle selector knob. NOTE: After reset, sequence "a" through "e" must be completed within 6 seconds. When it tells you to rotate the cycle selector knob, it means 1 click, not a full turn. Once you have completed the cycle knob turns reset and "a" through "e", turn the cycle selector 1 click clockwise from the position it is already in. This is the fault code display mode. Then press the start button. Each time you turn the cycle selector knob 1 click clockwise after pressing start will show you an error code. Note: this washer stores 4 codes if any. The error codes on this washer are displayed in this format: F5 E3, F7 E1, etc. There is an error code chart in the image below.

If there are no error codes stored, I recommend that you start from the beginning (step 1 above) and then run the Automatic test mode. If this unit detects a problem, it will display the error at the end of this test.

Post the results back to me.

The washer do not complete the wash cycle and appear E3 in the display


Looks like this is a known defect of this model, the repairs of this looks to be two steps, open up the washer to reattach all the cables to the main control board, or buy the updated board with a later software version and install the new board.
if you want to buy the board you can reference it here Manufacturer's Number: 34001496

I have E3 error code on a Bosch washing machine maxx classic - what does it mean? thx!


"E3" on a Bosch Maxx means the door is not closed properly. Either there something preventing it from closing properly (blockage) or there is a fault with the locking mechanism.

e3 code as per the service manual states;

drive the motor
but is not seeing
any tach
response. Visual
check shows
motor is not
moving. (Locked,
Hall Sensor fault


a locked hall sensor generally requires replacing the sensor, however on the p[art breakdown for this unit it is listed as part of the motor assy and even that is not clear enough to give you a definitive answer, it lists for over $200 so im not even comfortable telling you " just replace the motor without first running though moore diagnostic tests first.although placement of the tech document is also unclear to me, there is one located within the machine , usually taped to inside wall( for tech to read and daig), pretty descriptive as to how to test certain components.oretty hard ti walk you through step-by-step on this forum.sorry cant be of more help then this
