Question about Bosch Washing Machines
We have a Bosch Exxcel 1600 washing machine that has worked well for years. Recently the washing has occasionally been wet at the end of the cycle which a short spin cycle would sort out. Now it is filling with water throughout any cycle, although not when the machine is stopped. Local engineer has suggested that it was the programme control board, 230 plus VAT, but that does not seem right as the programme will run as expected except for the water issue. The drain is clear and there are no leaks around the machine and the drum does not contain water between washes. Any help gratefully received.
Just a guess but could the fill valve be defective, not shutting off completely when it should?

Cant understand how the machine will revolve on the 'spin cycle' & yet you can hear the motor on the 'wash cycle' but yet it doesnt revolve!!
Nomally if the water fills, & the tub revolves without the programmer advancing, its because the heater is not working. ie faulty thermostat, heat element, or maybe a wire burned off in the 'heater circuit'. Check if you have 240 volts at both ends of the heat element, with a meter or 240 volt bulb
!! BE CAREFUL OF 240VOLTS!!

The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.
