Question about Washing Machines
Had a f21 error so managed to clear it, but now when I go to wash on any cycle it clickc through the setting but nothing is happening. It wont wash at all. Took the front cover off and lots of water came out when I undone the filter please help
I am assuming your saying the drum is not turning, if this is the case then it could be the brushes on the motor or the capacitor.
Both are an easy fix. To access the motor I put the machine on its side after draining out the water and unplugged from the mains.
The brushes have 1 or 2 srews, they should be at least 1/2 an inch long and up to 1 1/2 inches when removed (they have a spring that pushes the carbon brush out)
The capacitor can have 5 or more wires, colour coded, located at the top of the machine inside, the capacitor boosts the motor every time it turns, but if the brushes are worn down to their limit it wont turn the motor. Brushes are under ten pounds on popular auction websites. Capacitors can be twenty pounds.

SOURCE: bosch exxcel wf02465 wont spin
We had similar problem, with the spin cycle not working. We opened the 'drain' pipe (front-right bottom side). It was full of lime scale; never been opened for years. We cleaned it up and the spin cycle is now working.
