Question about Washing Machines

Bosch washer WFK2401UC

Hello - I have a similar problem. The display is blank, it has power and is lighted but no characters.Tried cycling the power and pushing buttons but I get no response.

I discovered the problem after a power failure (surge). At first I had no power. I replaced a fuse and then the "start" button will light but the other lights on the panel will not light. The display is black also.

Were you able to fix your machine?

Do you know how to reset the machine or to retrieve any error code displays?

Thanks so much for your help.

It appears your timer/controller board has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Sometimes the brushes on the motor get worn and they cause motor to act intermittently. I changed my brushes and this corrected the problem of not washing or spinning.

I have a Bosch washer, model number WFK 2401 that washes and rinses, but suddenly won't spin. It just sits and counts down until the end of the spin cycle and then signals the end of the wash cycle as...


I just had the same problem last week Aug 1 2009
on our WFK 2401 purchased in 2001

If you hear no motor spinning when it should then it's something
with the motor. If you hear motor spinning, esp spin cycle, but
the drum doesn't spin, then probably broken belt ($30 part).

Since I work on cars (this is very much like an alternator+belt) and wanted to avoid a $100 service call (just to come to house) and
at least try for a quick fix before buying a new washer, I opened the back, confirmed belt looked ok, so tried
replacing the brushes in the motor, and it worked.

For a good description on how to do this see
http://dossy.org/2007/05/lots-of-miles-on-our-bosch-wfk2401uc-washer-motor/
I took some pics, and time permitting will post more details
to this dossy site to help fellow owners.
I purchased the brushes at partstap.com for $50 (incl tax+ship)

Bosch Axxis problem


Thought these additional details might help as we are having a similar problem.

When the washer is turned on we get a blank screen, then after a bit we see the display flash. After sometime flashing then we see it go to normal and we can run it. It is as almost as if it need to warm up...

We can get the display to show faster, by playing with the knob. However, the machine still needs time before we can use it.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

There's probably a penny or something in the drain pump. I've had this happen several times and it's easy to fix.

1. Make sure the washer is drained.
2. Remove the plastic panel at the bottom held on with the two plastic screws.
3. Drain the last bit of water into a pan by opening the cap on the black rubber tube.
3. Unscrew the big white cap on the left.
4. Look in there and you will probably find a penny or hairpin, etc.
5. Put everything back together.

I think your manual will probably describe this too.

Bosch Washer WFK 2401


leaks could be from anywhere. remove the top and back cover, put on a cycle and try to trace where leak is. sorry if this is not very helpful. water in filter should not smell. this may be due to using liquid detergent which causes a smell like drains if used over a period. put on a boil wash and revert to using powder
