Washing machine Bosch WAE20260AU error E2

Hi,

I currently have a problem with washing machine Bosch WAE20260AU. The machine suddenly stop leaving clothes all wet. The display always say "E 2". I haved checked the operating instruction it said that E2 means "Motor fault. Call customer services!"

What does it mean? How much do you think it cost to replace the motor?

Thanks

That fault code is to do with the drain pump either its jammed or not working remove the front plate at the bottom of the machine undue the filter and check to see if it is either a blockage or something jammed in the pump..

hope this helps cheers

I have the same problem on a Miele W418 washing machine.

Just will not spin at all although the Pump out motor and the rest of the washing cycle all appear to be working.

SOURCE: spin cycle leaves clothes very wet

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. 

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

SOURCE: leaves clothes very wet and soapy

Your pump is clogged. This stops the machine from spinning out or rinsing. You have to locate the thing, (comes under the tub, lower end of big black tube) take the clamps out to clear the muck. Refit as you have dismantled. First try to drain out the water completely or you will flood your room.

It is under warrenty call the store where you bought it and have them look at it. If you mess with it it will void your warrenty, belt may not be working or transmisson may not be shifting. The house call will be at no charge.

I have a Bosch Maxx WFL 1662 washing machine. It does not stop washing and go over to the rinses sickle.Where do i start looking for the problem?


Hi Eric, There's two links below... 1st link is Bosch Washing Machine Error Fault Codes and the 2nd link is worth reading, The master reset is only part of the trouble shooting, I hope these help.
To perform the Master Reset, carefully unplug the washing machine from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for one minute. After one minute is up, plug the washer cord back into the wall. Next, open and close the door of the washing machine 6 times within 12 seconds to send a "reset" signal to all the components. (This is a common fix that many appliance repair mechanics use - it works on about 50% of all washing machines.) Once the reset has been completed set the washer to do a small load with no clothes in the washer. See if the washer goes through with the cycle as normal. If the washer performs correctly, then it has been reset and is fixed. If not refer to more troubleshooting techniques and causes of problems below.

How To Fix Washing Machine That Is Not Spinning or Draining

Ihave Bosch Maxx 6 e2 error. I tried to reset the machine but it didn't work. What is the problem and what can I do?


The e2 error is a generic error that the machine shows if it's been overloaded or if the load becomes unbalanced during a wash cycle.

To fix you must do a master reset of the washing machine.

1. Close the door and make sure the dial is pointing to the "OFF" function
2. Hold the Start/Pause button and turn the dial anti clockwise (to the left) to the "express 15 min" program at the same time.
3. Hold the Start/Pause button for a minute (the e2 message is meant to start flashing after a minute of holding the button down however with my washing machine this didn't happen) (and neither with mine)
4. Release the button and turn the dial back to the "Off" function.
5. Select any program and the message should not be appearing.
This worked for me

My washing machine toshiba aw-9760s Kept showing this "E2 -3" problem. Whenever i close the lid to start washing my cloths. Anyone here can help me? In need of answers A.S.A.P


I also have a Toshiba AW-9790S, and encountered similar problem. The E2-3 would occur sporadically and halt the washing programme. E2-3 error occurs when the washing machine detects that the lid is not properly seated and locked during the rinse or spin cycles. I took mine apart and resolved my problem by cleaning the contacts for the switches. There are 2 contact switches at the lower right side; 1 for sensing the lid is closed and 1 for sensing that the lid lock is engaged. Both the switches were slightly oxidized which prevented current flow and the sensors from working properly.

Bosch Washing MAchine - E2 error message


Hi.

E2 means uneven balance.

The error code gets reset using the following procedure:

Ensure that the machine door is closed. Turn the dial in the OFF position.
Hold down Start/Pause button and turn the dial anti clockwise at the same time until its position is pointing at the Express (15mins) program.
Hold down Start/Pause button until the e2 message starts flashing (or keep holding for about one minute)
Release the button.
Turn the dial again to the OFF position.
The machine is reset. Select any program.

If the message comes back after selecting program, then there is still a balancing problem. Remove and redistribute load, check floor and ensure machine is at level.
