Bosch Nexxt 700 spin problems

We have had our washing machine for approximately 9 months and I have begun to notice that some loads do not spin at the full speed and when the machine finishes the clothes are still quite wet.  The cycle completes and it goes through a long spin portion but it never gets up to full speed (800 to 1200 rpm depending on the cycle chosen).  It begins spinning gradually faster and faster and then slows to near stop the speeds up again for a bit then slows down (I assumed this was part of the process to redistribute the load so that it would be in balance before going high speed).  This process continues for several minutes and sometimes it takes off to full speed and sometimes the cycle finishes without ever getting to the programmed speed.  Is this normal? Thanks in advance.

Yes it could be normal if the balance control senses that the load is uneven however the same problem could be caused by a blocked filter or blocked sump hose.

I have a Bosch Nexxt 700 Series Washing Machine. We have been emptying our washer by shop vac for a couple months now. Nothing in the pump. Once through the wash cycle it will try to drain and then flash...

Is the pump pumping? Have you cleaned all the drain lines including the discharge hose? You may have nothing in the pump but it could be blocked somewhere else.

Not draining

Clean out the lint draw and then run vinegar through a cycle.
If this doen't work try CLR. or/and put the drain hose to the lowest level and then put a flexible clear tube down to unblock it.
Use less detergent in the machine. I make my own detergent and I don't have any problems as one of the ingredients in it help keep all lines clear.
If that doesn't solve the problem contact Bosch directly.
