First unplug the machine if you haven't already-if your machine is less than a year old you should be under warranty-call the company that you bought it from-cheers Denny

When the unit is off, open the door and spin the drum, does the noise occur? If the answer is no then there is nothing wrong with the bearings. Chances are the hall sensor on the motor is on the way out. Call for service and ask them to replace it. Make sure you are using a "HE" branded detergent,,,, less is best.

This is a fun task. Not sure of this model number, whether it has a heater or not, if it does you can remove the heater and attempt to get out whatever it is out through there. The other way is to remove the bottom bellows, drain out the water through the drain trap first, this will give you a bit of access. The easiet way is to take the front panel off, otherwise you would have to tip the unit back, securing it, and trying to access it that way.

good luck.

We had the OE message come up and did the above procedures...that didn't fix it. I removed the dual pump modules (they come off in one piece...one is the recirculating pump, the other is the drain pump). Turns out, the drain pump impeller design sucks. Even though it turned when I put power to the pump, that doesn't mean your pump isn't bad. Once it is under load pumping water, the impeller can slip where the pin connects to it from the motor. We replaced the motor for $60 and that fixed the problem. Our unit is at least three years old and we have a family of four, so it does get used quite often. Nobody told us about the filter at the bottom of the unit and I figure if we knew this ahead of time, we probably could have avoided the impeller issue...but it is still a sub-par designed motor/impeller. The new one I ordered looks like an updated design so I don't see this happening again. It is quite easy to remove and replace the pump, btw.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hi.

Err 5 is water inlet problem.

Move the appliance, ensure that the water hose is not kinked or blocked, and check filter in water hose if installed.

Check connected faucet and water pressure.

If the inlet hose and pressure is OK, then the inlet valve and water level switch must be tested as one of the two parts is likely giving the error.

Regards.

Ginko.

Bosch Exxcel 1200 (WF02464GB) not heating


The machine only heats when it takes the detergent, all three rinses are cold only and this time of year the load will be very cold when it comes out. If the machine is not taking extra time (like a hour or two) longer to run a cycle, then there is no problem.
If you want to check the heater is functioning, try this
1 Put the dial to off
2 press and hole the start button whilst turning the dial one click to left (easycare 30)
3 release start and either two of the progression lights are lit or if it has a diplay should show 8.88 or 0.00
4 turn dial to 90 cotton, take the the long way round ie not thro the off or you will have to start again
5 press start
6 drum will fill and the heater will come on, wait a few minutes and if the heater is working ok you will hear a noise like a kettle boiling.
The drum does not turn during the test to allow you to hear this without the movement of the drum obscuring the sound.
If it sounds ok, cool. put dial to off, wait a second then select drain to get rid of the water in the drum
All the best

Cant get Bush WM-1260TVEME washing machine to start a cycle off the button


Check to see if the power is getting to the machine. If it ismake sure the door is closed firmly, there is a safety switch on the door. If none of these things work, you have adoor switch problem or a panel fuse out or a broken panel circuit. If you have the skills to open and troubleshoot than those are the things to look for.

Steering noise at turning left and right


If the noise is heard just at the steering wheel when turned left or right, then remove the steering wheel and apply a little multipurpose grease or white petroleum jelly on a brass band under the steering wheel.
If the noise is heard coming from under the engine bay, check the entire suspension system for worn out ball joints, tie rod ends, rack ends, rubber bushes and shock absorbers.

Bush wm-1260tveme require instruction manual


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but FixYa cannot do that direct - members of the forum are just people from all over the world, probably working from home, and not representing any particular manufacturer ;-0)
???
Manual
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
