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!

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.

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

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.
