BOSCH washing Machine WFE 2021

After a few mins on a 40 degree wash (fills with water) it just stops, to continue you have to press the start button again, the heater is working fine, the M/C then seems to go all the way through the wash !! Any ideas please ?? Thanks

Re: BOSCH washing Machine WFE 2021

Just curious about the water said "40 degree wash"...isn't that extremely cold water? Usually tap water is around 55 at the lowest.
anyway, here's a hunch. the washing action (with shaking of machine) is unlocking the start switch relay...but this method of electrical starting is too old school for this washer...but still worth a try? locate the start switch circuit and "jumper" out the start switch.

Sorry nothing to do with conditioner rinse, the M/C stops after a couple of mins into the wash cycle, when pressing the start button again it often goes through the program heating, rinsing & spinning.

Bosch WF2001 washes only 30 degrees programmes

We had this problem and it turned out in our case that the hot water inlet filter was blocked. The pump wasn't receiving any hot water into the machine so wouldn't start on anything except a cold (30degree) wash.

We turned off the the hot water tap on the plumbing at the back, disconnected the inlet pipe from the machine, then put the end of the pipe in a bucket and turned the water back on, and saw loads of sediment spurted out.

We ran it until we'd filled the bucket, then turned the tap off, emptied the bucket down the drain, then disconnected the hose from the plumbing and cleaned the hose separately (there's a gauze at the plumbing end of the hose so make sure that's clean).

Then get some pliers and where the hose attatches to the machine there's a filter that you can pull out. Clean this out. In our case this was completely blocked with limescale sediment etc.

Reconnect everything, check it's all tightly fastened etc. then turn the tap on the plumbing back on - turn it on to a hot wash, press start ...and in our case it all worked a dream again.

All this info is in the manual if you've got one, but I thought I'd write it out in case you've got this problem and don't have the manual.

Ahhhhh... cleeean washing again! Hope this works for you. Happy go laundry!

I suggest that you check the brushes in the motor for wear.
Remove rear panel, remove drive belt, undo bolts securing motor, unplug motor lead and earth wire.
Lever motor back, keeping hold of it, and remove.
Check the brushes, they are at the opp end to the motor pulley, if there is less than 8mm left, then replace brushes.
I would also check the pump filter, and clean if req'd.
Please rate my fixya solution.

It may be the door interlock that is faulty. This is the cheaper solution however it maybe the the electonic board. In any case it needs the attention of a bosch Technician. Cross your fingers its the door interlock.

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 blockage is in your plumbing and not in the machine.

Bosch WFE 2021 machine does not complete wash...

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Fault code 01

this is actually a fault code error code 1 not one minute check your manual as codes different on some machines from memory i think 1 is a filling fault this machine uses fuzzy logic if water fill takes longer than 4 mins (low pressure) machine stops can be restarted by pressing start button.
see if machine will complete just a rinse cycle.

good luck
