Hi Guys Having a problem with my Bosch WFLi2440GB/01 washing machine. The darn thing decided to stop spinning the other day so, being an electrical engineer, thought it was the brushes. took the motor off (remembering to switch off first!) and sure enough they were down to about 10mm, bought some new ones and fitted them, whilst I had the motor out I also cleaned the internal parts of the motor and the commutator, but the drum still wont spin. If I put it on spin the pump kicks in ok and drains any water in the drum, I've checked the inlet hose as well as the waste hose I've also checked the drainage hose from the drum to the pump (and instantly became 50p richer!) Is there anything you can think of that I have overlooked? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Bosch wont spin
Go back inside it and look at the place where the drive connects to the drum is there anything loose or missing that should be attached the drive coupling breaks or comes loose, i dont know about this particular model if its a belt driven or what but look closely at the connection to the drum and see if anything is abviously loose or broken.

Had a repair man here for the same issue. Learned two things:
1. Too much detergent causes 'soap lock.' The electronics will get confused when there's too many suds left after a rinse and shut the spin cycle down. That's why re-running the entire cycle without more detergent solves the problem. Use less detergent.
2. There is a way to manually get the spin cycle to run using diagnostics codes. Here's what my guy did:
a. Washer selection knob in OFF position.
b. Hold the 'Spin Selection' and 'Delay Start' buttons down at the same time.
c. While holding those two buttons, turn the Washing selector knob to Permanent Press-Cold.
d. Keep the buttons held down until the LCD control panel reads 'P:01'
d. Release buttons.
e. Use the 'Spin Selection' button to cycle thru the codes. Stop when it reads 'P:04' which is the spin cycle.
f. Press 'Start/Pause' button to begin the spin cycle.
I don't know what the other codes do but this should save you from having to run the entire wash cycle.
