There is no start capacitor on this washer if it has brushes in the motor, most likely the prob is due to worn brushes, to check them, do the following.
Remove rear panel, remove belt, remove motor plug.
Undo 2 screws securing motor, lever motor back with a screw driver or similar, keeping hold of motor and remove motor,.
You will find the brushes at the opp end to the motor pulley, replace if less than 1cm in length.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Bosch wfk 2800 drum makes a noise when turned around


When you rotate the drum by hand slowly does it feel bumpy and still make a noise? If so suspect the bearings on the drum to be the culprit. Hope this helps.

Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer - DRUM DOESN'T CYCLE


This seems to be a fault with the program controller unit or the water level sensor. The program does not advance further after the inlet is filled but operates the drain to exit water. Now the water level sensor must be checked as if this is not working in the stipulated time it will drain out. Also unless the water level sensor contacts on reaching of set level the motor must start.http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1401/how-to-replace-the-bearings-on-a-washing-mach.html

My bosch maxx stops mid cycle and the spiral icon that represents spin starts flashing. Its seems that it can not drain or spin yet the drum rotates when washing. Now i have washing stuck and i can not...


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. Without knowing the model I can't be certain, but I would suggest that the empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.
You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model, there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.

In the event that this doesn't work and you just want to get your washing out, you will find that turning the machine off at the wall for 20 minutes will reset it and allow you to open the door (With the power still off). IF THERE IS WATER ABOVE THE LEVEL OF THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR, then pull the machine out and (With some help, because it's heavy!) Tip the machine backwards at about a 45 degree angle, so that the water line falls below the door before you open it.

If the above doesn

Drum will not spin on any cycle.bosch nexxt 300.

If you are saying that it doesn't go into the spin cycle (but the drum turns in other settings) then I would suspect the control board - Item 333

Bosch Exxcel 1200 Express Washing Machine spin not working


I had the same problem- machiine not spinning and a few days later not turning at all. Display would go from 11min to 1min.
I did 2 things - 1) changed the brushes on the motor- cost £7.50 .
2) whilst working under the machine disconnected pipe from drum to pump and emptied it- found 2 coins in the bellows.
