Question about Bosch Axxis+ WFR 2460 Front Load Washer

Bosch wfk2801 washing machine drum does not rotate

The machine goes through its cycle but the drum does not rotate. The spin function therefore does not operate.

This problem has occurred since we had a blockage in the outlet pipe which ahs now been cleared; is thie purely a coincidence?

Thanks

Remove rear panel and check the belt is o/k, if it is, then remove belt, undo 2 bolts that hold motor, unplug the motor connector, lever motor back with a screwdriver, and remove motor.
Check the brushes, they should be at least 5mm long, \any shorter, then replace.
Plz rate my solution.

The drum on my WFL2461 is not spinning(centrifuging)


This is not something that is easy to fix. The front load machines use a DC motor. If the drum works when it washes and it does not spin, the issue could be the motor controller.

Fills with water then does not rotate, also does not spin


Check for large items of clothes being tangled if the Bosch washing machine doesn't spin. The weight could not be evenly distributed in the drum and the spin cycle will have been disabled to prevent damage to the clothes..

Load the drum with large and small clothes together and run the entire washing cycle and spin cycle again.

Add more powder and run the entire washing and spin cycle again if you haven't found tangled large items, but the spin cycle still failed. This indicates the amount of cloths was too small.

Add 1 tablespoon of fabric softener to 1 pint of water and pour it into the main detergent dispenser if there's no tangling and the load was a normal size. The cause would have been excessive suds because of too much, or the wrong kind, of detergent. Use HE (High Efficiency) detergent in Bosch washing machines.

I have a maytag over capacity plus heavy duty 2 speed 10 cycle washer it fills with water fine you hear the motor kick in to girate but doesent spin or you put it on spin cycle it sounds like it is...


The motor is working, but the mechanism not engaged by the helix so the shaft can not move therefore no agitation or spinning. Motor is designed to turn 2 directions: clockwise and counterclockwise for agitation and spinning. Therefore there are 2 mechanisms to assist these tasks. The drain is control by a separate pump and it is still good also.
The tube has to be out to replace the helix for agitation and a part to engage with the spinning rotation to release the brake so the spinning function can work. These parts are cheap, but the the labor is not. Hope this can help

Washing machine won't spin or rotate


Sounds like the motor brushes need replacing, you will have to remove the motor to do this.
Hope this helps.
