    Sounds more like worn out shock absorption cylinders. Replaced mine and works better without the banging sound

SOURCE: NEXXT Premium will not spin or drain

There should be a filter located at the bottom right front of washer behind drop down flap or plastic cover.
Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

SOURCE: Washer stopped. E04 beeps but won't spin or continue any cycle. Have shut off machine but only makes a strange sound.

Error code E04 with a full load of laundry and water in the washer. Unplug the power to the washer. Take off the round cover plate in the front right. Mine did not turn clockwise or counter-clockwise, it was completely stuck. Used two flat tip screwdrivers to carefully pry it away, without damaging anything. The plate is a hard plastic but just pliable enough.
Once removed, you will see the pump (img_0001). Unscrew the pump cover slowly. There will be water coming out, so be prepared. In my case we had a LOT of water, so I drained it gradually into a couple of large garbage bags. Wrap the bag opening tightly against the pump surround to minimize spills (img_0002).
Once all the water is gone, remove the pump cover and clean out any items trapped in the pump and in the drain from the drum (img_0003). In my case it was some loose change and a small ColorCatcher sheet. Reassemble the pump and you're done.

SOURCE: error code 02 on a newly installed Bosch Nexxt Washing machine

This is a trouble code for a fill that is taking to long. Make sure that both the hot and cold water valves are turned on. Hope this helps.

Hello and welcome to fixya.

I`d suggest removing the back panel and inspecting if the belt has perhaps come off.

**Unplug the unit from the wall first**

If so, put the belt around the motor pulley and start it around the drum/drive pulley. As you hold it in place spin the large pulley and it should go back on, careful not to pinch your fingers...ouch :(

Let me know what you find out or if you require further assistance.

If this indeed solves the problem please take a second to rate my solution accordingly.

Thank you for choosing`"fixya" and good luck.

SOURCE: Bosch Nexxt Premium washer shaking like crazy

Check that the w/m is level (not necessarily with a spirit, just that it doesn't rock and roll), lock the foot nuts up to the machine. Check the pump filter and outlet pipes for blockages. A machine will be noisy if it taking to long to discharge the waste water. If you have moved the w/m and are in a hard water area, you may have dislodged built up lime and that has created the problem, run a heavy duty descaler (designed for w/ms) through the w/m.
Good luck

UNABLE TO SHIFT INTO GEAR
LEVER STUCK, LOOSE OR ONLY SHIFTS 1 WAY (either up or down)

Check that its not just the gear pedal either stuck on its pivot shaft due to corrosion, & that it is not just spinning round on the gear change shaft
If stuck in gear, try rocking the bike back & forward while moving the pedal up & down
If not then its probably the gear selector mechanism - hopefully on the accessible part.
If the gearbox only shifts 1 way then its probably just a broken / dislodged spring on the claw mechanism.

Remove the right-hand engine cover & check that the shift shaft operates the claw (which turns the gear selector drum) & that all springs etc are OK.
Otherwise its on the internal part of the selector mechanism either the shift drum is stuck or more likely the shift forks are worn or broken. Either way it will require a full engine strip

Washer doesn't agitate or spin. How can I tell if it's the belt.


Hi

Try to move the tub by hand. If it is not moving easily then small clothing or any other foreign object is stuck there and you'll need to clean it. If it is moving by hand then it is due to a loose or broken/worn out drum bearing itself that has gone bad and should be replaced. If there is a humming or rattling noise then the belt has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps....please post back for further assistance.

Water runs into drum but drum does not spin. after 10 mminutes washer beeps


If the drum does not move at all, I would suspect a broken drive belt, or worn motor brushes. Check beep codes/error codes in your manual, for a better idea of problem area.

Bosch dryer lights up when turn on nut drum does not spin


The drum spins around by the belt surrounding the parimeter of the drum. A tensioner is also part of this system. You may have a broken belt although the belt usually squeals before breaking so I think the tensioner is at fault. The top would have to be removed then the front panel next to gain access to these items

Water will not drain out of washer (bosch nexxt 6400). Will spin if on cold wash but not on spin. makes a clicking noise while trying to drain


The 03 error code is the drain. Disconnect the drain hoses and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the correct type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum isn't getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from your house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if the block is in your plumbing, and not in the machine. Assuming that your filter is clean.

Bosch Washing machine will not spin


Are you able to see the belt? Maybe it broke. If the drum is not spinning than sometime broke that would make the drum spin. If you machine is a direct drive then there is a problem with the drive shaft.
