Hello,

You haven`t mentioned whether you`ve checked the pump or not and obstructions and debris in Bosch pumps is very common, so I`ll assume you didn`t and explain how you can do it yourself.

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**


  1. Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, I can't say, I'd guess you could get wet. ( unless you`re lucky enough to be close to a floor drain )
  2. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
  3. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
  4. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful or wear chain-mail gloves).
  5. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a red ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan ) There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out.
  6. Now pull out the trap and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap. Hopefully you'll find the item/debris that initiated the error code.
  7. After removing any debris or obstruction`s re-install the button trap/lint filter and plug the washer in to power or reset the breaker and give it a test.
  8. Run a load and watch for leaks. Leave the pump access door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight and there are no leaks.
Ultimately you may have a faulty drain pump, but I would certainly start by performing the things I listed first.

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "fixya" and good luck.

SOURCE: Front load washing machine would not spin now won't wash either.

Sounds like you have a broken belt or a bad motor. The easiest way to tell if the belt is bad is to reach inside the drum and turn it. If it turns very easily, you probably have a bad belt or something has caused the belt to jump off, such a s a loose pulley or bad bearing. If it feels like there is a good amount of resistance, or a kind of "winding up" noise, then the belt is still on and you likely have a bad motor. Also, you could just scoot the macine out, unplug it, and remove the back cover a look inside to see if the belt is still on the pulleys. Good Luck!

SOURCE: mACHINE STICKS WHEN SPIN PROGRAMME REACHED

The 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 block is in your plumbing, and not in the machine. Assuming that your filter is clean.

I have replaced the carbon brushes in my logixx 8 machine after error code F43 appeared .the machine works ok but the washing stays soaking wet on the wash programmes


Make sure the pump wires have not got accidently dislodged when changing the brushes. Also check the program cycles, you may have accidently selected a "no spin" cycle.

Hi.

If you have Bosch, Baumatic, or any other machine built by Bosch, then F43 is a motor issue:

Error F43 : Motor fault: do an emergency drain through the drain access in the front bottom side (see manual). Open door and check ig the drum rotates free when spin by hand. Disconnect power before performing maintenance.

My new bosch logixx front loader washing machine (3 weeks old) is showing a flashing error code F:43....what does this mean ? Thanks


I just realised that I don't appear to have a comprehensive list of Bosch error codes, but some quick research tells me that F43 is a motor error, usually associated with the motor brushes requiring replacement (Though they may also be sticking and just require removing, cleaning and re-fitting).

Hello can you please help me.. i have a big problem with my washing machine error on F43 Bosch logixx sensitive can you send me what the problem is.. Rune from norway


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

For Bosch Logixx, F42, F43 and F44 all decode as 'motor fault indicated'. Sorry ;-0)
I changed the motor on our Bosch (not a Logixx) at a cost of GBP250! I do expect it to last another 20 years, though.

If this has assisted you please score accordingly.
Thanks and good luck!

My Bosch front end washing machine will not start a cycle. Door is closed tightly and when I push start/pause red light comes on & immediately goes off-this happens every time I push the start/pause...


My Bosch washer turns "on" and water runs but it does not spin or complete wash. I hear the machine "clicking" as if it is attempting to to function but no spin or full wash cycle.
