Tripping the fuse as soon as it's switched on, even when switched off at the socket. Plug has to be removed before circuit will reset.

You've got a major short circuit there. Start with the cord, searching for the damage. Check the schematic, to see what is connected when the machine is off, it won' t be much.

leaks could be from anywhere. remove the top and back cover, put on a cycle and try to trace where leak is. sorry if this is not very helpful. water in filter should not smell. this may be due to using liquid detergent which causes a smell like drains if used over a period. put on a boil wash and revert to using powder

SOURCE: Bosch Washing Machine

A washer should not be plugged into a gfci device. It should use a dedicated circuit just for the washer off a standard duty circuit breaker or time delay fusetron fuse. In most washers that are top loading, a diaphragm switch operates the start circuitry for the washer [ timer ] as water goes into the tub, a positive pressure acts on the diaphragm and closes a set of contacts connected to the timer that operates the several contacts for the motor and transmission. the only place there might be power is on the spade connectors on the motor, the timer, the water switch, the door lid switch. Now, if the motor is sooo old that the insulation breaks down, it will develop a fault to ground and charge the shell of the appliance to 120 volts. This is a hazard to you the user. If you have the technical knowledge get a meter and check the motor leads to equipment ground. If the meter deflects full scale on the RX1 setting you have a problem with a winding to ground short. Replace the motor. Another problem is you might have a frozen bearing which causes the motor current to shoot up, tripping a breaker or blowing a fuse. remove any belts and try spinning the motor pulley by hand to see if it is bound up. try rotating the pulley on the transmission to see IF it is bound up, do the same with the pump. if any of these things are difficult to rotate it may be the prime source of your problem. change the pump, replace the transmission bearing or work inside the transmission may be necessary. motor bearings are press fitted on the motor shaft.

Problem(s?) Bosch WFO2864GB/01


check the 13a fuse in the plug if you have a heater fault it may well have taken the fuse out as well as the rdc the machine will also need checking to resolve the issue rcd's are very sensitive with most having a trip current of only 30Ma although the heater is first thing to check

Main fuse tripping when...


That could mean that there's a wiring fault (short-circuit). Unplug the unit from the wall socket and see if the breaker closes again.

If so: check the building wiring (get a certified electrician!)
If not: the heater wire is probably the cause. If it's a new unit, you should return it to the store for exchange. If you have no more warranty, have someone with electrotechnician skills replace the wire.

I have an 03 error displayed on a Bosch WFK 2801 washing machine. Error only shows when machine is used with high water level function selected, otherwise it works. Why please?


03 error code is the drain. Disconnect the drain hoses and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the correct type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum isn't getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from your house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if the blockage is in your plumbing and not in the machine.
