Question about Bosch Washing Machines

1 Answer

How do I reset the flashing rinse light on a bosch wae24060gb following a motor brushes change ? thanks.

I've changed the motor brushes, which were def gone. There is only 3 buttons with corresponding lights on this machine so the usual routine for fault code f21 doesn't apply.

This is typical of a control board problem.
About 60% of the time they can be repaired, but it's easier to replace it than keep testing.

If you are competent at electrical repairs, then read -on, otherwise order a replacement, and have it fitted.

Isolate supply.
Remove top cover by removing screws at top rear, slide cover rearwards.
Control board is on right at the front.
Test connections - remove and replace all connections, checking for signs of arcing.
Check main wiring loom to motor for integrity and damage.
If no signs of damage, remove control unit board, and examine for arcing or poor contacts, overheated components or damage.

If everything still looks ok, a replacement control board should be fitted and the machine tested.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: f21 fault on Bosch Classixx

Hi.

Here the reset procedure:

  1. Ensure that there is no water in the washer.
  2. Turn the timer knob knob to OFF position.
  3. Close the washer door.
  4. Turn the timer knob to 6 o clock and wait until you see the start/pause button flashing.
  5. Press and hold SPIN button.
  6. Advance the timer knob to next part of cycle (7 o clock position).
  7. Wait 5 seconds.
  8. Leave the button.
  9. Set the timer knob to off position.
  10. Trip circuit breaker for two minutes and restart if the reset did not work.

If that does not work, then there is still a problem. F21 indicates that problem can be motor, wiring or electronic control module. Try the reset a couple of times if that does not work at first try.

Regards.

Ginko.

SOURCE: Have a Bosch Maxx Classic

you would not be checking the pump to clear a motor error you would be checking both the motor and the motor control the pump controls the amount of water that leaves the unit and has a seperate function from the motor entirely two totally differnt systems if you have some electical ability you can disconnect the motor and do a bench test on the motor this will allow you to distinguish between which is causing your problem either the motor or the motor control by your testing and cleaning of the pump area you did nothing to alleviate the motor error and that is why the error code remains. If you have any further questions message me back I await your reply Thanks Rick

SOURCE: F21 code still flashes after i've unclogged line - reset?

if you cleaned out the pump by removing the center part of it and it still shows f21,either you didn't clear everything out of the pump,after you pull out the center piece stick your finger inside where the impellar is to see if you feel anything rapped around it,if it's clear and still won't drain then you need to buy a new pump and remove the old pump and install the new pump part number 280187 and it's around 120 dollars http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-MFW9700SB1/3048/0153200/W0705107/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

1) Test the lid switch must be closed very well, this will NOT start the machine.
2) the start button test for open
3) tight any wires connector
4) see the outlet box from your house is o.k reset the breaker.
5) put some desklamp for to see if working, so go and test the power cord .
6) tight the fuse or c.breaker from control board.
6a) put correct tension in the belt, see for any obstruction mechanical with the clutch and brake see the diagram
7) try it

Bosch FD8805 washing machine rinse light was on but nothing working replaced brushes on motor were well worn down but still no response machine dead apart from flashing rinse light dn


Plug off the power cord from the wall mains. I give you several alternatives, sort out thru the easiest: Note your brand and model. Check on YouTube for change of motor brushes. Then disconnect your motor and check your brushes; follow noting how you dis-assemble so you can re-assemble easier. If your brushes are less than half an inch long get new brushes (thru this very site Fixya) and refit; actually this is quite easy. The spin has a lot to do with worn motor brushes. Manufactures want you to dump machines and buy; it helps them all. Not you - you shell out bucks.
If you have already cleaned out your filter, which is usually just under the tub (be prepared for a lot of water; and disconnect from the wall power socket), your washer still may not spin. So look into next para below. The tech sheet is usually taped to the body of the washer inside somewhere.

Check the motor housing for an overload button, usually on the back and coloured black or red. Give it a push and if it clicks then the motor might have just been overloaded and shut itself off.
There is a big connector located at the motor - giving power to the motor (located under the tub) to the right side, could be loose. Disconnect the connector and refit to make sure it is tight. Before refitting the back, etc, try the spin alone; if it works you are done.

Reset pcb bosch classixx 1200 express


There is no reset as such, if the motor shorted when the motor brushes went there is a good chance that it blew the motor tracking or relay on the board. Sometime this is indicated by F20 or F21. Unfortunately this will be a new board. You could try to run a motor test as follows:
Hold in the start button while turning the dial one click to the left (30 easycare) wait until the display shows 888 or two indicators light up next to dial.
Release start and turn dial to 60 cotton (WITHOUT GOING THRO THE OFF).
Press start
This should start a motor test
slow turn one way, slow turn the other, pump on then up to full spin.
(some machines will show the rpm on the display).
If this does not work, you probably need to change the module aswell.
Best of luck

F21 has appeared on my Bosch classixx 6 1200 model


F21 normally indicates a fault with the motor or the main control board. It could be the motor brushes need changing.
If you've changed the brushes you now need to erase the stored errors and try the machine again.
.
Turn the knob to off.
Close the door.
Turn the knob to 6 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
The start/pause should begin flashing.
Press and hold the spin button. (the spin button is the one that changes the spin speed, it may be marked "RPM")
Turn the knob to 7 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
Release the button.
Turn the knob to off.
.
This should erase the error code and get you running again.
.
If the error code returns, you have a problem with the motor, wiring or main control.
If the machine won't go into diagnostics to erase the error code, it would suggest a faulty control board.
.
Try it several times to see if you get it reset.
.
Note, If the start button doesn't flash, just carry on trying to erase the codes.

Bosch Classixx 1200 Express replaced worn brushes correctly, now motor doesnt turn. Motor got extremely hot and was popping and sparking prior to brush replacement. Is there a thermal cut out on the motor?...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I know that it's not exactly what you were hoping to hear/see but what follows is my (pre-typed) advice to others about washer motors possibly failing. I will understand if you do not wish to score this.

---------------
It does sound as if the motor requires replacement.
Now, a word or two of advice; it might be suggested that just the brushes on the motor want changing; experience (of others) suggests that they may only last months rather than many years UNLESS the motor itself is refurbished. Refurbishment includes skimming the commutator on which the brushes run. Without skimming the brushes do not sit cleanly on the com, often causing excessive sparking and excessive wear on BOTH. Alternately a new motor! I changed the motor (and belt) on our 19+ year-old Bosch at a cost of GBP250 ;-0(

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

Changing the brushes when the motor is off


Remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes, if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.
