Question about Bosch Classixx WFC 2465 Front Load Washer

Bosch wont spin

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.

Cheers

    Thanks James

    The machine is belt driven and is good and tight, its as if the motor is failing but I've completely stripped the motor and cleaned it. I also checked the windings for continuity and all looks good. Any other ideas?



    Cheers

    No, I dont have access to a growler I'm afraid. Just checked the field windings with a meter all checks out ok?

    Bit of a strange one this eh!

    Exactly the same problem and I have checked everything. With a wife and 3 kids It's cheaper to just go and buy a new one even though this is only 4 years old. When I say cheaper, I mean it will end in divorce if I don't sort this out today.

    Replaced the brushes, check to make sure the angle against the commutator , spins for a little white then stops ?

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.

    knowing motors you know that brushes dont always fix one there could be a problem in the field windings did you check them for a short or the commutator could be bad. do you have access to a growler to check the motor out. and a multimeter to check the field windings the motor might be week due to the windings having a short.

Bosch washer spin only


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.

Hope that helps! Tim
