It appears your motor/motor controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Bowl will not turn or spin in any cycle the machine fills and emptys but the bowl just doesn't agitate


Sounds like either the belt has snapped from drum to motor or the motor has gone its easy to fix just remove the rear panel check to see if the belts snapped put new one on there should be a nut that tightens the belt up on the motor psrt put belt around drum part and motor and move the motor to tighten yhe belt up

How can we fix the vitiation, noise, and movement on a front loader that was just moved to another home?


These units spin at a high RPM. With just a few clothes, especially jeans and sweat items, the drum is off balance and therefore will have the above symptoms. These newer units weren't designed to run just a few items. It's a full load or nothing. It's an energy conservation thing.

Bosch Classixx 1200 - Drum not turning


It could be the motor itself (is there any overheating smell from the motor) or it could be the capacitor which controls the motor. I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the motor brushes. I replaced the brushes and all was OK.
The only other thing that could be wrong especially if it overfills with water is the water level switch (this is a pressure switch on the side of the washer) You can easily check this by removing the hosepipe to the switch and blow gently into it, you should hear a clicking sound) This might be the clicking that you heard so it is probably Ok.

WFC 2260 - Machine Fills and empties, but drum doesn't rotate


You probably need to replace the brushes in the motor.
Remove rear panel, remove belt from drum, undo 2 screws securing motor, unplug lead to motor, lever motor back with a screw driver, keeping hold of it, and remove motor.
You will find the brushes located at the opposite end to the motor pulley.
Please leave a fixya rating for my proposed solution.
Thankyou.
