Bosch washing machine starts filling with water, then does nothing, timer counts down but no movment


have a technician check it out as it may be a board problem
normally the fill level switch ,when the set water level is reached activates 2 things
it stops the water in and at the same time moves the program on to start the wash cycle
so it is either that switch or the program board

Bosch washing machine fills with water throughout any cycle


Just a guess but could the fill valve be defective, not shutting off completely when it should?

Bosch washer over fills with water


If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Washer fills and agitates (goes through cycles), but does not empty water or spin. Troubleshooting indictes it might be the lid switch. How do I remove the switch?


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. Inthis case the fault seems to be the drain and not the lid switch as if the switch is faulty then the program will nbot start. The drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Cleaning a pump: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKjKi50YBpI&NR=1&feature=fvwp

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

Replacing the pump on a Bosch machine, please check this link for tips:

Bosch washing machine will not fill, spin, drain..has power and water to machine...perhaps circuit board?


If it won't fill it may not spin or drain unless the water level switch is bypassed. I would check the water valve & the water level switch and tube from level switch to tub must be air tight no holes.
The water level switch must kick in to agitate. I'm not sure on Bosch but some work like this..
