E3 warning light Bosch Maxx Classic

I have a regular E3 warning light between loads or cycles. Booklet suggests that door is not closed properly. This is not the case! A temporary solution which sometimes works is to turn the machine off for a few minutes then back on again and select a program. This works about half the time but causes lengthly delays in completing the day's washing. Machine is under warranty but hope to solve this problem today. - Barry Sanderson

SOURCE: no power to my bosch maxx classic

Hi, check the following trouble spots below. you will find the issue in one or, all the areas stated.


1. No power to the washer
Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Lid switch/door switch
The washing machine may not function if the lid switch is defective. The switch is usually located near the door. Replace if found defective.


**If you are getting power to the washer and, step 1 and 2 check out ok, replace the timer control or control Board and start switch as well.(You can test the continuity or, resistance level of the Lid switch/door switch with a multimeter(ohm).

SOURCE: Bosch maxx classic washing machine doesn't clean clothes

There are a lot of things to consider when trying to solve this problem. Obviously a front loader washes differently than a top loader. Top loaders tend to using a washing motion that is good for stains but wear out your clothes fast. Front loaders typically use less water and wash more gently, but in some ways still do better than top loaders. Anyway, think about any other variables that go into the laundry equation. Consider the distance the machine is from your water heater. This machine will use MUCH less water to fill than your old one, and, you know how when you turn a faucet on hot it takes a minute for the hot water to actually get there? It's the same way with your machine. If there's a sink next your washer, you should always turn on the hot water on the faucet until it gets hot right before you start the machine. The same goes for dishwashers. If there's not a sink close you can easily turn up the temperature for all hot water on your water heater, although that will use more energy.
Consider what detergent you're using. If you're using high efficiency detergent (like Tide he) maybe you should switch to your old brand. If you're using your old brand of detergent, try getting a high efficiency detergent.

SOURCE: I have E3 error code on a Bosch washing machine

"E3" on a Bosch Maxx means the door is not closed properly. Either there something preventing it from closing properly (blockage) or there is a fault with the locking mechanism.

SOURCE: What does error code E2 mean? I have a Bosch Maxx

The e2 error is a generic error that the machine shows if it's been overloaded or if the load becomes unbalanced during a wash cycle.

to fix you must do a master reset of the washing machine.

1. Close the door and make sure the dial is pointing to the "OFF" function
2. Hold the Start/Pause button and turn the dial anti clockwise (to the left) to the "express 15 min" program at the same time.
3. Hold the Start/Pause button for a minute (the e2 message is meant to start flashing after a minute of holding the button down however with my washing machine this didn't happen)
4. Release the button and turn the dial back to the "Off" function.
5. Select any program and the message should not be appearing.

Kenmore elite washer will not start


The problem might be that the black pin (about 3/8" long and 1/8" in diameter), that normally sticks out of the frame of the washer at about the 2 o'clock position, and which is pushed in when the door closes, has broken off. If this pin breaks off, the washer will not recognize that the door has been closed. In my opinion, the pin is most likely to break when you close the door and the door was not properly aligned with the door frame -- in which case the pin will be sheared off. Let me know what you find.

Dryer not working. Lights reads PF


Hi,

If your dryer is showing code PF, then a power failure interrupted the previous load from completing and you will need to restart the cycle. You will need to press and hold the "Start" button to restart. If the error message reads E1, E2 or E3, then there is a more serious problem and a technician will need called to resolve the problem.

Kenmore dryers come equipped with door switches. If the door is not closed entirely, the dryer will not start its cycle. If the other indicators seem in working order and the door is properly shut, the door switch may be faulty. On some models of Kenmore dryers, there is a warning light to indicate if the door is open. If the "Door Open" light is still lit when you have closed it and heard it click, you should look into replacing the door switch.

Another possibility is the thermal fuse. This fuse is usually found in the back panel near the exhaust duct. If the dryer overheats, the thermal fuse will blow, shutting down operation of the dryer until the fuse is replaced.

Check the wiring from the outlet. If you have recently had to convert from a four-prong wire to a three-prong wire, or vice versa, the connections to the dryer may be faulty. Make sure that the red and black wires are connected to the proper hot terminals, the green wire to a ground and, if present, a white wire to the neutral connection.

Thanks and have a nice day.

you can run a regular cycle with bleach as instructed in the manual. there may be mold on the rubber where the door closes. wash this with water and bleach. to avoid this problem in the future you can loosen the light bulb then you can leave the door open a little all the time with no light. press the off button when not in use.

I have a dirty rubber inner Bosch Maxx 1200 Front Loading Washing


First clean around the rubber with some mould and mildew cleaner for bathrooms - available from most supermarkets.

This is a natural accumulation of waste detergent, fabric softener, fibres and dirt build up that is being attacked by bacteria and eventually decomposes into a sludge / goo and then eventually starts smelling bad as well.

To keep the machine clean of waste build up and to keep any bad odours away:

1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
7. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly
