Not fnishing wash cycle!

We found that the machine was not spining clothes dry so I changed the motor brushes, however this may not have been the problem as we find that mid cycle the pre-wash light starts flashing and the program stops. it will spin if you put it on the spin program. Can you help?

Re: not fnishing wash cycle!

Erratic behaviour in wash programmes can often be due to clogging of the path between the tub and the pressure sensor which senses the water level in the tub. Clogging can result in water level being incorrectly detected (may read as too high or too low) for the stage of programme that is executing, which can result in a halt of the programme.

My washing machine is not spining

It is likely that the Carbon Brushes of your Bosch washing machine need replacement. Get them from your nearest Bosch Spares stockist (P/N: 154740) Replace these on the motor armature, and it will be alright again. To be certain that it is indeed the Carbon brushes, open your washing machine and look on the motor (opposite side of the pulley) There has to be 2 grayish chalk type brushes running on a copper armature, these brushes have a lifetime of about 4 - 6 years before being diminished.

Hope this helps

Maytag neptune stops in mid cycle

It sounds like your drain pump is going. Neptunes are suppose to neqarly dry the clothes with how fast it spins. A poor drain pump/motor, could cause this to be less effective. There could also be something in the drain lines. I would check that before you pay money on a pump though.

Excess water in clothes after spin cycle

Unblock the outflow pipe from the machine that goes into the sump under the sink. (have a pot ready for water overflow) This will help drain the water. If the spin cycle is making a screetching sort of noise then it is possible that the carbon brushes will need changing. This affects the spinning if the brushes are worn.

Clothes wet and soapy after cycle compleded ,mostly when towels are washed.

Eiterh your machine is not spining properley or you simply need to clear out your drain filter.... or it could be the pump im thinking your filters is slightly blocked..

fill the machine with water and lower the waste pipe to ground level and if the water trickles out slowly then its a blockage if not then its the pump...

if its not the pump then its the carbon brushes on the motor....

follow this procedure.. hope it helps any problems let us know
