My Bosch washing machine not working properly

Hi I bought a Bosch excell Max front loading washing machine from the uk and now I am in Australia it is only 1/2 working! It is a WFO2864 a partly digital one, the cycle and spin speed being selected with a manual dial.
I think it could match the Australian WFO2460au possibly. I have seen a spare parts online shop but I wondered if we can fix it at home???

The main problem is the cycle stops after 5 minutes into it, then the light turns out and the LED goes from the showing the cycle time to '0'.. The door is easily opened then...

Can you tell me whats wrong with it and if I can fix it at home? David Carne

SOURCE: bosch washing machine won't drain and the door won't open.

Sounds like you have a blocked pump.To empty the machine manually lower the drain hose into a bowl or bucket.Once emptied the door should open.On most modern machines there will be a filter behind the kick plate at bottom front of machine, Check this for any foreign objects then try a spin before putting on again.If problem persists come for further options.

(E4) There is a round door on the lower front of the washer. There is a small hole near the door. Put a small screwdriver blade in the hole, push in just a little, and you can rotate the door clockwise, the door will come out and you can get to the problem. When the water is drained in machine the door is open able.

Immediately facing you is a black connector, about 4 inches (10cm) in diameter. When you unscrew this, all the water left in the washer will spill out onto the floor. Use a plastic bag to catch this or a small pan.(later models have a drain hose?) The black connector unscrews counterclockwise, and takes quite a few turns. Once you have it out, you'll find the source of your clog. Remove it, clean out, screw the black connector back in. You can check with rinse, if you want to make sure there are no leaks. Put the door back on and rotate. I will try to come back to you re. the wash, wash.

Pl rate me 'very helpful' for the free help, thanks!

Smellly Bosch Max 1000 front loader washing machine

(Posted this already, but found an AU site that sells Norwex detergent - a great product!)

We've had our Fridgidaire front load washer for 6 years now, and untilabout 2 months ago, it smelled absolutely horrible. I tried the thingsI was told to water/bleach cycle, wiping the slime from therubber seal, and leaving the door didn't work.

Iwas told about Norwex laundry detergent - Norwex is a company whichproduces green cleaning products - the detergent is a quicklybiodegradable, highly concentrated powder, and all I need is 1/4 - 1/2a teaspoon per load. After about one week of using the Norwex detergentI noticed that the smell was completely gone and hasn't returned! Also,the gross slime that used to collect in the rubber seal is no longer aproblem. I've been so wonderfully amazed!

I don't know why thisdetergent fixes the smell problem, but I've talked with others who havehad the same great results with it - their smell issue was solved.Perhaps it's because it contains no animal fat products?

Anotherbenefit of the Norwex detergent is how economical it is - it comes in a2kg bag for about $25, and in a front load machine you will get approx.800 loads from it using the above mentioned quantity/load! It's reallyan amazing product! You can buy it online - (an Australian site) is a great site to buy from. Good luck with the smell!
