Hey check to see if you can move the drum by hand,, if you cant the the bearings on the drum have gone and it is seized ..

If you can turn it by hand then most likely it is the carbon brushes on the motor..

hope this helps
any questions dont hesitate to contact me im here to help....

Just been through this with our Bosch Maxx, problem was the pump discharge pipe was blocked with soap deposits. I also removed the large black rubber pipe from the drum/pump and cleaned this out as well.
All working fine now.

SOURCE: Bosch maxx classic washing machine doesn't clean clothes

There are a lot of things to consider when trying to solve this problem. Obviously a front loader washes differently than a top loader. Top loaders tend to using a washing motion that is good for stains but wear out your clothes fast. Front loaders typically use less water and wash more gently, but in some ways still do better than top loaders. Anyway, think about any other variables that go into the laundry equation. Consider the distance the machine is from your water heater. This machine will use MUCH less water to fill than your old one, and, you know how when you turn a faucet on hot it takes a minute for the hot water to actually get there? It's the same way with your machine. If there's a sink next your washer, you should always turn on the hot water on the faucet until it gets hot right before you start the machine. The same goes for dishwashers. If there's not a sink close you can easily turn up the temperature for all hot water on your water heater, although that will use more energy.
Consider what detergent you're using. If you're using high efficiency detergent (like Tide he) maybe you should switch to your old brand. If you're using your old brand of detergent, try getting a high efficiency detergent.

SOURCE: washing machine keeps tripping electric switch

Hiya,
there is a few things that will do this to your electics 1st & formost if your trip switch is tripping off remember this is a safty device to prevent fire so ignoring the problem & switching the power back on to try again could run the risk of fire!!

when the power trips you will need to know at what point in the wash this happens if its when the machine is emptying then it would be a pump issue if the machine is emptying no problem then the issue is more likely to be the motor either of which would need to be replaced if you are having these problems.

on rare ocasions you can spring a leak & if water gets on the electrics this will also trip the power but this is 1 of the least likely posabilatys.. rest assured if the power is tripping off then your home electrics are working fine & to confirm all sockets run from 1 main fuse all lights run from a second main fuse then there is a few other bits that run on there on fuses too i.e. cooker, power shower etc.. remember always get a qualified electrician to work on your electrics to ensure the job is carried out correctly

Hope this helps

Bosch Classixx 1000rpm. Trips out RCD each time turned on. Am able to use other appliances in same power point. Only 3-4 years old


If the RCD is tripping then the appliance has an earth leakage fault. You should remove the plug from the power point and not use it until you get it repaired. This is a potentially dangerous fault, and the RCD is telling you it is faulty.

Bosch EXXCEL 7 1200 trips the RCD before even starting


Sounds like you keep the washing machine in an environment which is either damp or not well ventilated.if condensation or moisture finds it's way onto the main control panel of said machine it will cause short circuits which will then trigger the house protection circuits.quick solution is to gain access to the control panel by removing the top after disconnecting power supply.then using a hair dryer over the circuit board panel for about five minutes, reconnect power and keep hands away from any internals and try to repeat the problem.if it still trips it could be a faulty relay or that the main pcb has failed.have you recently experienced local thunderstorms as this is another possible reason for damage to pcbs.

Machine partially fills and then stops working.


THE RCD SWITCH is concealed on the inner side of the hindges of the door or on the top innerside of the door. it is a simple push switch which has a mechanism of push to on/off
this switch has got stuck in off position.

Bosch Maxx 6 WFL 2061 Front Loader W/M


brushes usually available on ebay,

if the drum rotates but does not spin, this could likely be brushes or component problem (i.e triac or relay) on control PCB. - the latter was the problem i had and this was easily spotted as a blackened track on the Relay on the pcb.

Brushes should be ~£5. - check the existing brushes first before buying them.

fitting is easy, BUT a word of warning..which you probably know anyway..
before meddling though in the machine, locate the large capacitor and with electical screwdriver and discharge all the terminals to earth first! - YOU MUST DO THIS TO AVOID ELECTRIC SHOCK!! - even if the machine is unplugged.

remove motor & undo the back plate to release old brushes.
clean of motor of any excess carbon dust, - this can eventually cause arching if not cleaned away.

reassemble and fit all plugs back.
THEN TAKE 5 MINUTES TO CHECK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE BEFORE SWITCHING ON. -
Do not rush anything - take your time.

Hotpoint WMA 48, tripped house rcd, no lights on and water heating noise.


need to know a little more really but here goes, if you remove the top and the drive belt is still on then it will be as straight forward as the motor brushes at fault they will need replacing as this is a common fault on these machines. hope this helps
