Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer

Bosch Nexxt 800 washer won't drain clothes fully

My washer don't spin the clothes fully. I had towels washing on the regular/cotton cold water cycle, and it spun very slowly at the end and left the towels pretty wet. It doesn't happen every time I wash, but maybe like every once in about ten loads. Don't remember what cycle I was using when it happened last. Also is there a way to just go to the spin cycle, rather than have to go through the whole cycle again?
Thanks for any help you can offer...

    Thanks it's working again...

    Please, tell me how I select spin only. I was told it's not possible on the Nexxt 800. I can't believe that's true.

    occasionally, the washer will not spin up to the programmed speed. I can hear the pump running to remove water, but the basket looks like it's still in wash mode (slow to medium oscillations)

    Thanks janann1206, thanks for the tip, I've used the 10 min. refresh cycle and it sure beats running a whole new cycle.

There is not a Spin Only Cycle BUT there is a REFRESH cycle that will take about 10 minutes.

Sometimes when the load is unbalanced and the machine can not balance the load by itself, the clothes will remain soaked. To avoid this, make sure you always have a balance of small and large things and when loading your machine, do not shove the items in so they ball up.

There is no Drain/Spin option anywhere on the dial. They must have realized they made a BIG MISTAKE on this model and added the SPIN option later. I bought this machine as it was advertised as "programable" but it is NOT. Any machine that does not offer a spin cycle is a waste of space and I would not buy a Bosch again.

Clothes in bosche washer gets tied up in knots in spin cycle


Are you running a load according to the care labels?? If you run delicate or easy care items on a cotton wash this can happen. Just because an item is 100% Cotton doesn't necessarily mean it will tolerate a cotton cycle check the care label. Also, if for example a cotton cycle is 6Kg, the easy care will be 3-4Kg, Delicate and woollens will be approx 2Kg. Overloading can cause items to knot during cycle. Finally, check that your inlet water is not too hot. Repost if you need any further assistance

Bosch washer won't spin with wet clothes


I am not sure if Bosch has a "load sensing" sensor, but I would start there else you may have a motor issue, or bad capacitor on your motor.

Washer won't spin


Hi hometownrock,

The washing machine may have a problem draining the water, if it cannot drain the water, then the cycle will not progress to Spin. You may have a foreign object in the Drain Pump Filter, this must be checked.

Please follow my below Tip on how to do this:

First inspect the water pump then the pressure switch. Soap buildup can cause this too.

My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer is making a knocking and squeaking noise during the whole spin cycle. It sounds like it's coming from the drum mounts - what should we do?


My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer will not drain. I changed the lint filter, and insured that the drainage hose was free of debris. I removed all the wet clothes, wrung out the excess water, and redistributed the clothes. Still, no draining or spinning. Initially there was a humming sound, but now there is no sound at all when I try to restart the drain or spin cycles. All the lights are appropriately "on".

Clothes too wet upon cycle completion...


Try reducing the amount of low sudsing detergent you are using. This can make the load too heavy and won't spin out. Remember suds have 3 parts, air, detergent, and water. The drain pump is designed for water, so if you see suds during the wash, it will be worst on warm and hot, then there is too much detergent, or is not low sudsing. I know Bosch reccommends HE, however HE liquids normally are not low sudsing, just High Engery. Also the Permanent Press cycles are always a lower spin speed. Hope this helps

Look into your manual, clean outlet filter & refit. Machine will not spin out if filter is clogged.
