Yes, check the brushes. Our 7-yr. old WFK-2401 just stopped spinning and a brush change did the trick. Repair people wanted $350 for a whole new motor, but it was only the brushes. Replacing them is not very difficult if you are somewhat handy with a 1/2in. wrench and have some common sense about mechanics and electrics. Just look carefully as you loosen motor - disconnect its wires first, and think, and study, and try to understand what you're doing. I took lots of photos just in case. In the end it was easy; make sure to get belt off motor and motor will be out in no time; just two bolts to undo. Also, make sure you put brushes in properly - their tips are slanted and need to go in the right way and make full contact with commutator inside. Again, common sense. Bosch sells brushes, also RepairClinic.com, for slightly more but real Bosch parts. I paid the latter $45 with shipping - Bosch part No. 154740. Another option is to take motor out and find local motor repair shop and have them do it. Bosch won't help you. Power to the people - and the motor!

SOURCE: bosch wfmc3200 will wash but will not spin or

hi, this is a drain pump motor issue. i would check the wires leading to the drain pump and the control board. make sure the pump wires are connected and the control board wires as well. if the wires are connected, this will rule out a communication problem and confirm pump failure.

You can also do a break point test with a multimeter on the control board to make sure the control board is working correctly.

Concerning the locked door(washer locked)**. if the door is locked, this may be a control fault. test the door lock mech for its operational value to confirm this as well.

SOURCE: bosch washing machine will not fill, spin,

If it won't fill it may not spin or drain unless the water level switch is bypassed. I would check the water valve & the water level switch and tube from level switch to tub must be air tight no holes.
The water level switch must kick in to agitate. I'm not sure on Bosch but some work like this..

draining has nothing to do with spinning.

open the back of your machine and you can see the mechanical parts of your washing machine

try to turn it ON , just keep a distance enough for you to see,

1. check the belt if it is attached and aligned (if loose, tighten it a little bit)
2. check if the motor is running ( if not, check the capacitor-small aluminum tube with wires) if busted replace it.

3. check if there is any hamming sound from the motor, if make a humming sound but does'nt rotate, take it out and bring it to machine shop to replace the bearing or bushing

SOURCE: won't wash

You need to check and replace the brushes in the motor if they are less than 3 or 4mm long.
Access is usually from underneath the washer, this means laying it on its side.

I CAN'T RESET MY WASHER AFTER FIXING MY PROBLEM WITH IT. CODE E-47 AND E-10 ARE THE CODES I'M SEEING. HOW DO I RESET IT?


The tech data sheet for our washer indicates two ways to exit the diagnostic mode:
a) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord OR
b) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 ot 3 clicks past the Start Position (Drain/Spin). Press OPTIONS and PAUSE CANCEL buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle LEDs appear.

Hope this helps.

How do I engage diagnostic mode?


The tech sheet inside the control panel explains how to do this but I will include an abreviated procedure here.
To enter Diagnostic Mode:
  • Turn power off at the console
  • Press and hold the wash temperature down then press thepower button. The machine should give two short beeps.
  • The different levels of information can be extracted by using the spin speed up or the spin speed down buttons.

You can get a replacement pump at pcappliancerepair.com - part # 285990 - and a lifetime replacement warranty on the pump - for (at this time, July 2009) about $124 total.

However, before you do anything you can run the washer diagnostics by pressing the following key sequence to put the washer into the Automatic Service Diagnostic mode (make sure the washer is EMPTY of clothing when you do this):

Prewash Options --> Wash time --> Prewash Options --> Wash Time (also known as a "Key Dance"). You have to press the 4 keys within 5 seconds for the washer to enter the diagnostic mode.

The washer will start counting down from 99 on the LED display and will run through the following steps:

Display 99-81, Nutate & Fill (washer plate rocking motion is called Nutate), Cold Water, Drive Motor Speed 300
Display 80-61, Nutate & Recirculate, Cold Water, Fabric Softener Dispenser, Pump in Recirculate mode (wash), Drive Motor Speed 275
Display 60-41, Nutate, Fill & Drain, Hot and Cold water, Bleach Dispenser, Pump in Drain Mode - LISTEN FOR IT TO RUN, Drive Motor Speed 250
Display 40-21, Nutate, Fill & Drain, Hot Water, Detergent Dispenser, Pump in Drain Mode, Drive Motor Speed 225
Display 20-01, Spin & Drain, no water fill, no dispenser solenoids, Pump in Drain Mode, Drive Motor Spin Speed 500
Return to Standby at the end of the countdown.

You can press Cancel at any time.

Also, if you can get the washer drained, when you tip it on its side and open the bottom cover (unplug the AC power first and secure the water lines & drain), if you shine a bright flashlight up inside the outer case of the washer, look for a plastic sleeve with some paperwork in it.

If it is there, you will find the washer's Service Diagnostic Paperwork, a large fold-out sheet that shows all the keystrokes, like those documented above, for putting the washer through a bunch of diagnostics.

My Bosch 100 series won't drain or spin. How do I


If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here’s the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT – DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console – DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). “C00” will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.


NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.
