Question about Bosch Washing Machines
I have a bosch 1200 classic express washing machine. its runs its cycle but the drum wont turn or spin. could you plaese help
thanks , ally
Providing the machine isn't requiring major breakdown repair, the problem should be solved by emptying the machine and cleaning the drain pump. If this is obstructed the maching won't drain or spin as any bits left in clothes (paper clips, coins, nails, screws etc) wedge themselves into the (what I call a fly wheel) the pump impeller wheel at the back. If the fly wheel can't rotate the machine cannot pump or spin.
So.........turn off the washing machine before you fiddle about with it. Then, at the bottom right-hand side at the front of the machine there's a drop down door. Take this down and take it off. Then, lower the drain hose from its holder and pull the hose out of its housing. Be very careful if you're doing this while you have very hot water in the machine. To be safe, let the water cool before starting. Next take off the closing cap from the hose and empty the water from the machine. There are times when the water doesn't empty by this method so carefully open the door to the machine and bale it out. If the water does come out via the hose, have a suitably sized bucket at the ready as up to 20litres can be drained. Once you've done this, put back the closing cap of the drain hose and returned the drain hose to its holder, unscrew (anti clockwise) the petrol tank cap look-a-like placing a towel underneath as a little residual water will flow out. The pump impeller (fly wheel) must be able to rotate so clean out any residual fluff from the thread of the pump cap and pump housing before returning the pump cover and screwing tightly on. Put back the drop down flap and, hopefully, away you'll go again.
Hope this is of some help.

Tools - Torx screwdrivers, Towels, very large pliers or mole grips, fairy liquid.
put the machine on its side, unscrewed the front cap as per instructions above, if it doesn't unscrew 9/10 there are foreign objects in there preventing this, disconnected the pump like housing including all black and grey rubber tubes. You can even go as far disconnecting the large black tube to bottom of the drum. clean all tubes by simply running undernaethe the tap try not to get the pump wet. I found £1.02, a metal button, stones and a button in there.
Hope this helps
