SOURCE: water coming out of the drawer

I have had this problem on the WD860 washer drier and it sounds more or less identical - the problem is that lint and general clothing material (and I'm sure some slightly less clothe-like items) are blocking the filter in the water pump that sends the water out of the machine. Now the only problem I have is that this was previously discovered by a Hotpoint engineer and promptly dealt with under the warranty, however I do not know how to get back in to the water pump housing (without damaging it) to clear out the new filter blockage. The waterpump is located to the rear of the machine on the right hand side (from the back) at the bottom of the drum - it is quite easy to access with a philips head screwdriver to remove the back panel, however then comes the problem - the water pump appears to be part of an all-in-one sealed unit that runs from the drum to the waste pipe and I can't figure out how to access it without causing damage. (Admins may wish to move this post to the as yet non-existent WD860 section - but the problem does sound identical to the one that floods my kitchen more or less everytime I use the damn thing!)

SOURCE: Washing machine wont complete drainage at end of wash cycle

Look under the washer tub where the drain hose comes out and attaches to the pump. Your pump impeller is either clogged or worn out. Try removing the pump and checking from there.

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWF1437W washing machine - wont start

The error message "Err" usually indicates that the wash program and option are not compatible. 40 degrees and 900 rpm Spin should be o.k.. I would try another wash program with no special options and see if the problem goes away.

SOURCE: Bosch Classixx 1200 red wash light flashes but doesn't start

Could still be the water inlet valve. What you need to do is pull the washer out where you can get to the valve and the plug. Unplug the inlet valve and start the washer and when you start it as normal check the volts of the plug and see if its 110 if it is you know that the valve is getting power to open but not,replace the valve. If you dont get any voltage then it could be the relay or control board

Model ESL 499. Why doesn't it start?

You have activated the delayed start function. Please read following instruction from user manual.

8. Delayed Start button

Allows the start of the programme to be delayed by a minimum of 1 hour, up to 9 hours. How to set the delayed start When the button is pressed, the number appears in the display (4). Press the button again to select the number of hours by which you wish to delay the programme start, up to a maximum of 9. E.g.: if you have selected number , the wash programme will start in 2 hours' time. To cancel the delayed start set, press the button until the number appears. Close the dishwasher door to start the countdown: a long audible signal (about one second) informs you that the function is active. If you open the door again you will see, in the display (4), how long there is to go (in hours) before the programme starts. A flashing dot in the digital display means that the delayed start function has been activated. Opening the door has no effect on a countdown which has already been started. If, during the countdown, you wish to see the programme number selected in the display, press the Programme Selector button (5). If, after having started the countdown by closing the dishwasher door, you wish to cancel the delayed start, press button (9) (Cancel) for about 2 seconds until the short «instruction accepted «signal is heard».

Washer Bosch Classixx 6 1200 Express. The machine is displaying a "key locked" sign in the timer countdown panel. As there is no button to press to lock/unlock, how do I getr rid of this sign. ...

You need to press 2 buttons simultaneously for 3 to 7 seconds. Look for a small child's face or a lock icon (Sometimes both) on the Facial panel, there will be arrows pointing from that icon towards 2 buttons, these are the 2 you need to press.

Hope it helps

How do I turn off the beepers on my Bosch washer

To turn the beep off (or volume down) on the Exxcel 7 (BOSCH WAE24468GB you do the following:
1. Turn setting dial to off. 2. Turn dial one step clockwise (wait for panel to light) 3. Keep finger on 'RPM' button and turn dial another step clockwise and release finger. 4. The default setting of '2' should appear on the display, this represents the Button Signal Volume 5. Pressing 'Ready in' button cycles through the volume settings from 0 (off) to 4 (very loud!). 6. Turn dial another step clockwise to set the 'Information Signal Volume', which is also set to '2' by default. This is the one that annoys everyone at the end of the cycle!
All the manuals are on the Bosch website, if you know the model code.
