The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. You have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, it should be replaced. Good luck!

this sounds like a door lock issue if the machine does not detect the door has closed properly you will get the same symptoms, try slamming the door shut (not too hard) if machine starts but then does the same thing next time you use it will need new lock it will have gone out of calibration.

Bosch classixx 1200 washing machine stalling mid-cycle

(E4) There is a round door on the lower front of the washer. There is a small hole near the door. Put a small screwdriver blade in the hole, push in just a little, and you can rotate the door clockwise, the door will come out and you can get to the problem. When the water is drained in machine the door is open able.

Immediately facing you is a black connector, about 4 inches (10cm) in diameter. When you unscrew this, all the water left in the washer will spill out onto the floor. Use a plastic bag to catch this or a small pan.(later models have a drain hose?) The black connector unscrews counterclockwise, and takes quite a few turns. Once you have it out, you'll find the source of your clog. Remove it, clean out, screw the black connector back in. You can check with rinse, if you want to make sure there are no leaks. Put the door back on and rotate. I will try to come back to you re. the wash, wash.

Bosh washing machine won't do any programmes

If it fills then the next phase is to agitate.
To do that the motor must drive
Can you hear a whirring sound from the machine if you get close to it if so then the belt driving driving drum may have snapped.
If not then the motor brushes may have stuck or have worn out.
Does the machine programmer advance by itself or are you turning the dial

Bosch Washing MAchine - E2 error message


E2 means uneven balance.

The error code gets reset using the following procedure:

Ensure that the machine door is closed. Turn the dial in the OFF position.
Hold down Start/Pause button and turn the dial anti clockwise at the same time until its position is pointing at the Express (15mins) program.
Hold down Start/Pause button until the e2 message starts flashing (or keep holding for about one minute)
Release the button.
Turn the dial again to the OFF position.
The machine is reset. Select any program.

If the message comes back after selecting program, then there is still a balancing problem. Remove and redistribute load, check floor and ensure machine is at level.

Washing machine malfunction

The latch might be an issue . Move the dial on pump mode . Try activate the door lock with a screw driver move it to the right and should activate the machine. If that works then the latch is the issue and can easily be repaired by removing the door.
