Something will be jamming the drain pump (no surprise there).
Some Bosch w/m's have a base plate, some don't.
Pull the w/m forward & tip it back against the wall at >45 degrees - should balance there easily. See if you can get underneath (inside).
If so, (power disconnected), remove the bottom kick plate area, and drop the drain pump back internally & down. Remove the wires & pipes (slowly, if there is still water to drain), and remove the pump. Dismantle it & remove the obstruction.

If there is a base plate, try for all hell to get the filter cap off.
Otherwise, you will have to put the w/m on its back, and unscrew the base plate (often, not an easy feat, as the screws are very still & jam).
Then follow above instructions.

WHY WONT MY GENERAL ELECTRIC MODLE #WCXH208VOWW SPIN


Hi Darryl

Usually won't spin until water is drained to a low level.

Wont drain possibly because of blockage or pump blocked or stuck. (A Common Problem in Washing Machines)

So... As for further Troubleshooting
Process of elimination.
Where is Time Wheel set and what does it require to advanced to next stage.

Think of it as a Rotating Timer Switch stopping at each stage to check conditions.
The stages are controlled by sensors like "High Water Level"
The Sensor could be a simple Float Switch... eg. "High Water"

If water is High... Dont allow door to open and don't allow spin.
But do allow Pump to run.
It's all Plain Logic like used in computers (If, Then, Else)

Hi my washing machine wont finish its cycle it is stuck in its final spin ? i cant open the door and cant find the filter


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

These are my general guidance notes for similar problems just in case ;-0)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Wont drain,spin,or agitate


You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.
