I have a Bosch WFMC2100UC101 washer that just stops in mid cycle. It may stop with 59 minutes remaining or 2 minutes remaining or anywhere in between. I have replaced the control board, but it didn't...

Its possible you have a blocked drain closer to the tub. Try tilting the machine to access underneath the machine and locate the drain pump. Then have a basin read to catch any water and remove the hose that goes from the pump to the drum and check for anything that may restrict water flow, possibly a sock. Hope this helps.

Spin cycle will not engage ..

The machine is failing to empty completely, make sure drain hose is free to drain and the drain is not blocked and that the filter isn't blocked. Also make sure you haven't selected rinse hold

We are getting error message E04 on our Bosch front loading machine and it won't drain and it makes a grinding sound.

We removed the round panel in the front and there was a knee hi stocking stuck in the filter - great advice - it's fixed and working perfectly.

Bosch WFMC 3200 Front Load will not pump water out

the pump gears could be stripped or clogged with soap residue including the line from the pump to include the drain hose itself. I took the back of my machine off after cleaning the pump twice to find the reservoir full of a brown soap gunk/sludge. there is also a small rubber tube that runs from this reservoir back into the drum which was plugged shut with the same gunk. this thick soap residue can damage the pump motor or slow the drainage system to get the E 04 warning. I cleaned the gray drain hose out with the garden hose and was amazed at the sludge that game out. When the machine would run on the drain cycle we would also get a sewage smell that I thought was coming form the drain trap but turned out to be caused by the sludge in the pump. After cleaning the system and now using no more that a tablespoon of soap it works great & the cloths are clean.

Washer wont drain or spin

As long as the water is draining away okay,then it sounds like new carbon brushes for the motor are needed if belt is ok.Should cost 10 pounds or so for replacement.Turn off power via socket before removing belt and motor.Good luck...

Perhaps try opening the round panel on the front of the machine at the bottom and cleaning that hose...good luck because it might be messy.
