SOURCE: my bosch wfk2401 front loader is stuck on spin

Hi
There is a door bottom right of the system which has a screw out (by hand) plug.
Remove this and ensure there are no foreign objects such as coins, bobby pins etc stuck.

I have found this to be a problem with the Bosch systems and cost me $150 the first time.

Ensure you have some towels as when you open the plug, water will escape

SOURCE: How do I replace the door seal to a Bosch Front

To change the seal the easiest way is to take the front of the appliance off. Remove the kick plate at bottom and you will see some screws holding the front panel on remove these Then open door and remove the screws holding the door lock on and unlip the seal by releasing the clamp on the front. The front should now lift off, if it doesnt then pull out the soap drawer and behind that at the bottom of the drawer is a screw holding the front on remove this then push the front panel down then it will lift off You can now take the clamp holding the seal to the tub off. Fit the new seal, fit the clamp to the seal and tub. From here, rebuilding is the reverse of the strip down.

SOURCE: CANNOT GET DOOR TO OPEN

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck.

**The door typically won't unlock as a result of the unit failing to drain due to an obstruction, excessive suds, also the E13 error (though it won't always show up) kind of one in the same...usually, but the pump failing can cause this as well**


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


This is the info regarding the WTVC ( vision ) series Bosch washers which differ from other prior models.

**Unplug the washer from it's power source...safety first**

The next step is as follows,

macmarkus_18.jpg

Following this ( or in reverse order it's your call if you think there may be substantial water still present ) I'd do this step first...checking the pump filter. It may be a good plan to have towels close by, or a wet-dry shop vacuum.

It's as follows...

Then the filter removal...

That should resolve the problem, As I also alluded to before there is a small possibility the pump itself is faulty, but not likely.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Let me know if you need further assistance or if any of this is unclear.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: bosch front loader washing machine door not opening

The door will not open if the machine detects excess water in it. Run the drain or spin cycle to check if water is being expelled. If necessary check the pump filter for obstructions and the outlet hose for blockages. If this does not work you may have a problem with the pressure system, the door lock itself or a crack or break in the handle and it is not catching the lock mechanism, let me know if this helps or if you need further assistance.

How do I adjust the sealing of the door when closing


The adjustment for this is usually on the back or side of the motor unit. Clockwise movement of the screw will lower the door position - keep adjusting till it seals. Do not over seal because then the door will reverse itself as the obstacle circuit might kick in and open the door.

Doors where hard to close without the weather door seals. But with them on they will not close. The body plates more but not enuff on the cab? I need HELP.


Hi!!
The doors Hinges or Striker need to be adjusted to make up for the weatherstrip thickness. To do this, loosen the hinge-to-door bolts for lateral adjustment only. Loosen the hinge-to-body bolts for both lateral and vertical adjustment.
FRONT DOORS 1kbron_78.gif
REAR DOORS
1kbron_79.gif
BEFORE YOU START:
  • Determine which hinge bolts are to be loosened and back them out just enough to allow movement.
  • To move the door safely, use a padded pry bar. When the door is in the proper position, tighten the bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm) and check the door operation. There should be no binding or interference when the door is closed and opened.
  • Door closing adjustment can also be affected by the position of the lock striker plate. Loosen the striker plate bolts and move the striker plate just enough to permit proper closing and locking of the door.
TO ADJUST ON A: F-150, F-250, Expedition and Navigator
HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL ADJUSTMENT
  • Loosen the front door hinge to front door bolts.
  • Adjust the front door alignment.
  • Tighten the front door hinge to front door bolts to 19-25 ft. lbs. (26-35 Nm).

FRONT DOOR FORE AND AFT ADJUSTMENT Check the rear door hinge adjustment before adjusting the front door hinge.
  • Remove the front fender.
  • Loosen the front door hinge to body bolts.
  • Adjust the front door alignment to specification.
  • Tighten the front door hinge to body bolts.
  • Install the front fender.

DOOR ADJUSTMENT The following procedure is for performing fore, aft, up, down and tilt adjustments.
  • Remove the door striker.
  • Loosen the bolts only enough to allow for slight door movement.
  • Carefully close and adjust the door until flush with the adjacent body panels.
  • Carefully open the door and tighten the bolts.
  • Re-install and adjust the door striker.
  • Check the door for proper operation and alignment.
STRIKER ADJUSTMENT Mark the position of the striker before loosening.

  • Loosen the striker retaining bolts.
  • Adjust the door striker and tighten the striker retaining bolts.

Door adjustment for a 96 f350 dropped about 1/2"


Here's the solution: You might want to park it under a tree and tie a rope to the door to pull it up when loosened.

  2. To move the door safely, use a padded prybar. When the door is in the proper position, tighten the bolts to 19–25 ft. lbs. (25.5–34.5 Nm) and check the door operation. There should be no binding or interference when the door is closed and opened.
  3. Door closing adjustment can also be affected by the position of the lock striker plate. Loosen the striker plate bolts and move the striker plate just enough to permit proper closing and locking of the door.

Adjust dr side door


If you can grab the end of the door and lift on,and there's movement, what you need is the door hings bushing, most all auto parts sell this as a kit, cost about $6.00, the only adjustment you will have will be at the striker bolt, that the part where the door latch, latches to, to hold the door close, it unscrews and it will have some adjustment, but not much.There not adjustment for door hing.

My door closes but then comes right back up. It also does not come up all the way


Check your travel limit switches. There will be an adjustment for Down travel, as well as 1 for up travel. There is also an adjustment for Force or Sensitivity. Make note of the current positions before changing anything so that you can go back to original settings.

If you are sure that nothing is tripping the light beam(s) / safety sensors, slightly increase the FORCE / Sensitivity adjustment in small increments. Look at the lablel of the adjustment to see which way to turn it, or consult user manual. Small increments at a time, until the door starts to work properly.

If you can't seem to get the sensitivity set, then reset it back to the position it was, and decrease the down travel in small increments until the door goes down, and stays down.

Once the door is staying down, increase the up travel adjustment in small increments until the door stops where it should.

Run the garage door opener through a few cycles for a few minutes. Make note of where the adjustment settings are.

If your door is metal, then you are done. But if your door is wood, you will likely need to adjust the force / sensitivity adjustment when the door is dry (low humidity time of year) as well as when it is wet (rainy season). Usually the best time to adjust the force is when you are in the time of year of when it is most humid. That is when the most stress / friction is on the door hardware.

It takes a little while to get everything perfect, but it is usually hands off afterwards until changes are made to the door.

It would be a great idea to go through and do the maintenance (grease rails, lube rollers, etc) before trying to adjust the opener. It will not only prolong the life of the door and opener, but the adjustments that you make will be valid for a longer time.

My Craftsman 1/2 Hp garage door opener doesn't stop going down despite (quite forcefully!) applying pressure in the opposite direction. It would buckle (and did) if I don't let it continue unhindered...do...


YOU NEED TO ADJUST THE DOWN FORCE.

YOU WANT TO TURN IT COUNTER CLOCKWISE TO THE STOP (THIS ADJUSTMENT IS ONLY ABOUT 3/4 TURN FROM MIN. TO MAX.). THEN TRY THE DOOR IF IT REVERSES TURN IT ABOUT 1/16TH TURN CLOCKWISE. CONTINUE THIS VERY MINOR INCRAMENT ADJUSTMENT UNTIL THE DOOR CLOSES WITHOUT REVERSING. THEN GO 1/16TH TURN FURTHER.

YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO STOP THE DOOR AND REVERSE IT BY GRABBING THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR AS IT GOES DOWN AND LIFTING SLIGHTLY. IF YOU CAN'T GET THE DOOR TO BOTH CLOSE AND REVERSE WITH MODERATE PRESSURE YOU MAY NEED ADJUSTMENT TO THE DOOR / SPRING / ETC.
- I DO NOT RECOMMEND ADJUSTING THE DOOR YOURSELF - CALL IN A PRO FOR THAT.

IF THE ADJUSTMENT IS SUCCESFUL ADJUST THE OPEN SENSITIVITY / FORCE IN THE SAME MANNER.

HOPE THIS HELPS

I have a new Sears 315mhz garage door opener and the door fails to reverse when an object is placed under the door


It sounds like the force adjustment may be set too high. Check this:

The force adjustments control the pressure used to open and close the door. A new garage door opener from the factory is set to the lowest possible force adjustment. If you have a properly balanced door, the forces required to open and close the door should be minimal.


The force adjustments are usually located on the rear of the garage door opener and/or under one of the light lenses, If your opener has two lights. If you have lights on the side of your opener, the force adjustment will be located under the right light lens. The force adjustments are labeled with an arrow indicating open or close and numbered 1 to 9, with one being the lowest force and nine the highest. The force adjustments can only turn 260 degrees, or ¾ of a complete turn. Changes to the forces should be done in 10-degree increments. Please remember that too much force will interfere with the proper operation of the safety reversal system. Do not increase the force beyond the minimum required to close the door. Do not use the force adjustments to compensate for a sticking, binding, or unbalanced door.

One door lower than other, how to adjust door


The door can be adjusted with shims on the hinge post or by adjusting the cabinet by raising the front corner opposite the higher door. Keep in mind the doors are not designed to be perfectly even.If the difference is the depth of a quarter or less it is good. The seals making good contact all the way around is more important. Eric

93 mustang car door doesn't


Sounds like the door may be out of adjustment. Check first that there nothing is getting in the way of the door closing area such as the seat belt, and that the door seals are in the correct position. If all checks ok there, Then the door striker witch located at the "B" pillar ( body area direct behind door ) needs adjustment. I recommend finding someone with experience doing this as it will require the use of a impact driver to loosen the adjuster But if you have access to this tool then MARKING where the adjuster is before adjustment is a good idea as a starting point of reference. The adjuster need only be slightly loosened to adjust and will move not only in and out but up and down. good luck and have a happy holiday season Kam

Adjusting the door on a neff dishwasher


I have the same problem with my newly installed Miele integrated dishwasher. The door does not stay open when you are trying to load dishes. I heard that there is an adjustable internal mechanism to adjust the tension on the door. But, I am still working on solving my problem.
