Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer

New machine, manual says run a spin cycle, can't figure it out

The manual of my new Bosch Nexxt tells me to run a spin cycle with a small load. This is supposed to help with leveling, and it seems to be hinting at a spin only cycle. I can't figure out how to make it spin only. The manual hints at a spin only when it talks about the Refresh option.
Thanks for any hints!

    Solution #1

    If I could find a "spin" only function I would press it. There is no spin button or selection that is obvious.



    Solution #2

    Yes of course the shipping bolts are removed. I'm not saying it won't spin I'm asking for the magic buttons to make it do a spin cylce with no water added. The manual hints at this but no telling how.

    The only way to get it to spin, is to totally run a whole new washing program. And this machine is supposed to be energy efficient? Even after running the load thru another whole cycle; no spin at all. You could count the rpm's, at about 60 to 120 a minute. I could spin the clothes faster by hand. Bring back the "scrub board"!!

    same problem, after the cycle is complete, comforter is still wet but no spin only option....

  • Anonymous Jan 08, 2009

    I have the same problem. I ran a load of "hand wash", they are dripping wet, and I'm looking for a spin only feature. I cannot believe I just spent $900.00 for a washing machine without this simple feature! Not happy at all.

Unfamiliar with your machine; why not try by putting your machine on, inserting the small load (there shd be a small load button), then pressing the "spin" only function - & then "start".

Washing machines are much more complex than driving cars, the manuals dont print that. They are close to outer space modules....

Bosch Nexxt 100 series front load washer will not spin. The machine will go through the entire wash cycle from wash-rinse-spin-finish but does not spin. I tried a separate spin cycle and nothing happens....


Just going on these symptoms, you may need a new control/timer.
Inside the control /timer are electrical contacts, and when your machine gets to that part of the cycle, the contacts are not closing to allow the cycle to complete.
If you have circuit board, you will perhaps need a new one of those.
If you do not, probably a control/timer assembly.
If you type "SeasPartsDIrect" into you computer's search engine, and then type your complete model number into the blank when you are asked for it, you may look at the schematic and see whether you have a control / timer or a circuit board.
God bless your efforts.

WHY DOES MY WATER PUMP, ON MY BOSCH NEXXT 100 SERIES, RUN LITERALLY ALL THE TIME DURING SPIN. THE PUMP REMOVES WATER AS IT SHOULD, BUT JUST KEEPS CAVITATING AS IT KEEPS RUNNING. I CAN TELL IT KEEPS...


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Completely normal. The pump will indeed run through the entirety of the spin cycle, it is by design.

As the items spin, more and more water is extracted and if the pump should fail to operate during this time it would cause increased vibration and inadequate extraction to achieve it's superior spin cycles.

Hope that helps quell your concern. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info provided here today.

Macmarkus :)

Bosch Nexxt 800 washer won't drain clothes fully


There is not a Spin Only Cycle BUT there is a REFRESH cycle that will take about 10 minutes.

Sometimes when the load is unbalanced and the machine can not balance the load by itself, the clothes will remain soaked. To avoid this, make sure you always have a balance of small and large things and when loading your machine, do not shove the items in so they ball up.

Look into your manual, clean outlet filter & refit. Machine will not spin out if filter is clogged.
