Question about Bosch WFMC2100UC Nexxt Essence Washer

Open Question

Bosch won't wash and won't spin

Was working just fine until late yesterday afternoon. Is barely 2 years old. Most of the posts say that it's the brushes. Would brushes go bad in just 2 years? This machine is used one a week - not commercially. So we turn it on, water runs in, then it just sits there until the rinse water comes in and then sits again. Clothes are sopping wet. help?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I suspect that there is water still left inside as the drain pump has been unable to complete its task so they are being spun in water!
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

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

SOURCE: bosch washer won't spin with wet clothes

I am not sure if Bosch has a "load sensing" sensor, but I would start there else you may have a motor issue, or bad capacitor on your motor.

I looked up your model number. You particular machine allows for wash with the lid open. You nothing happens. On that case I would check the motor capacitor.

Spin cycle not completing


have you lost any garments in the wash lately? there may be one in your pump causing loss of power on the suction. When the machine spins out, have you noticed a marked decrease in time or just the dampness of the clothes? This is what leads me to believe this is a clog in the pump or the hoses to drains

My Bosch Exxcel 1400S Express (WFX148SGB) just doesn't spin anymore. Everything else seems to work fine?


Bummers. Sounds like the clutch is out. (If you can hear the motor spinning but not the drum, I'd say that's it. Especially if the machine has a number of years on it.)

I once looked into having a service man come fix a clutch. He said it would be cheaper to buy and new washing machine and have the old one hauled away.

Good luck.
