Yes, check the brushes. Our 7-yr. old WFK-2401 just stopped spinning and a brush change did the trick. Repair people wanted $350 for a whole new motor, but it was only the brushes. Replacing them is not very difficult if you are somewhat handy with a 1/2in. wrench and have some common sense about mechanics and electrics. Just look carefully as you loosen motor - disconnect its wires first, and think, and study, and try to understand what you're doing. I took lots of photos just in case. In the end it was easy; make sure to get belt off motor and motor will be out in no time; just two bolts to undo. Also, make sure you put brushes in properly - their tips are slanted and need to go in the right way and make full contact with commutator inside. Again, common sense. Bosch sells brushes, also RepairClinic.com, for slightly more but real Bosch parts. I paid the latter $45 with shipping - Bosch part No. 154740. Another option is to take motor out and find local motor repair shop and have them do it. Bosch won't help you. Power to the people - and the motor!

1) remove the tension ring under the rim of the seal at the front
2) flip the whole seal into the drum so that you can get at the inside of the seal
3) remove the tension ring hold the seal to the outer tub
4) reverse of the process to put in the new seal
Its as simple as that.

Remove the rectangular fascia at the bottom front of the machine - on my model you only need a coin to turn the two plastic screws. Unclip the black rubber drain pipe, remove the plug from the end and drain the water into a bowl (or several bowls).
Then undo the round plug at the bottom left of the machine (more water will come out) which will give you access to the extractor pump. Check that there are no obstructions in there and that the small propeller in there can turn freely.
If there is no obstruction there then we move onto the next steps.
If you can figure out how to remove the front of the machine then you will find this part easier
First, TURN OFF THE POWER. Then, on the front of the machine, on the bottom left, undo the screws that fasten the extractor pump onto the front of the machine. Then pull the machine out from the wall so that you can get to the back of it. Remove the back of the machine by taking out the ten or so screws.
Looking in from the back: At the bottom-front-right of the machine you will see the extractor pump. It will have two hoses attached to it - a fat one and a slightly thinner one. Reach into the bottom of the machine and remove the power plug from the back of the extractor pump. Then, using a pair of pliers (or something similar) to open the spring clip, remove the thinner of the two hoses (the drain hose) from the pump unit. This can be fiddly - especially if you're doing it from the back of the machine.
Pull the hose out of the machine and check it for obstructions. If there are no obstructions in there then move onto the next step.
Reach back into the machine and, again using the pliers, remove the fatter tube from the pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check it for obstructions in the entry and exit holes, and also make sure that the propeller isn't obstructed. Then shake and squeeze the fatter tube to see if there is an obstruction in there
Best of luck.

Timed out on drain cycle, basically you either have an outlet blockage or something is trapped in the pump, you can check the pump by opening the bottom right flap on the front panel,manually emptying the w/m and checking the pump filter for coins etc. Also, check the outlet isn't blocked.

The E27 error flashes on the washer LCD screen and stops the current load. Unplug your washer for 30 minutes and then plug it back in to reset the code.
Open and close the door two or three times to reset the sensor. Sometimes the door has been closed too hard and the sensor reading fails.
