Bosch WVF 2402 Washer Drier Steam Problem

Hello

Recently, our Bosch WVF 2402 Washer Drier (approx 3 years old) has started to emit steam from the powder drawer when drying on the normal heat setting. It does not do it on the "delicates" setting. I have replaced the 120C temperature limiter but it still happens.

I have cleaned out the pump trap but there was nothing in there and there is no exhaust air vent to clear - any ideas?

Many thanks


Andy

Hello All

Problem solved by clearing out the condensate container which on inspection was full of dried up fluff and dead tissues! This is not a ****that is mentioned in the manual and access to the bin is pretty tricky so I suspect there are lots of machines out there with the same problem waiting to happen.

Access was gained by taking the top of the machine off, removing the dryer motor and then scraping out the muck using a wire coathanger and a vacuum cleaner.

Many thanks

    Great tip Andy!!! Thanks! Did not use the vacuum - did not find it helpful. Also what helped - removed a rubber hose from the top of the condenser box

    (no new lines here), and used a led lamp to look inside. Boroscope would be super useful here as well.

    Another tip for users of this washer/dryer.. About 3 years into the life (just when the warranty expired), the dryer motor stopped working. We called the authorized bosch technician, and he was asking 180euro for the parts plus probably as much for the labour.. Since this was close to the price of a new washer, we sent him home and paid just for the diagnostics. It is super easy to remove the dryer motor (be careful to lubricate the rubber gasket with a bit of wet soap when installing it back), and remove the fan blades. In our case it was just the lint that increased the resistance. Also there was a small piece of rubber seal that needed lubrication. I used just a teardrop of super high quality bearing grease there, reinstalled it, and now 8 years later, the dryer motor is still working fine. (Had the problem that Andy described above though)... BTW very good structural, but awful maintenance design by bosch on this unit. I guess the only access except for the small belt cover is either from the top or bottom (no decent rear removable panel).. I guess they installed the entire unit from the top in the factory...

PS Another tip (on top of what Andy already wrote above). Only once you are done cleaning the big stuff from the condenser box, you can remove the pump trap from the front end (so that the water can flow out), and put the shower head into the condenser box (assuming you have a proper drain on the floor) to clean out the small debris...

PPS Check out my comment above regarding the similar issue!

Bosch classixx wvf 2402 at the end of the dry spinning cycle, 5-6 minutes the machine makes a terrible noise. What could this be?


Can you describe the noise? Is everything else working normally? From what you are saying, my guess at this point would be that the pulley on the motor is working loose.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but this forum does not supply manuals direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, with experience of addressing problems and helping for free on the web ;-0)

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,
John C

My Bosch Classixx washer dryer has stopped drying and the clothes come out steaming hot and steam escapes from the powder drawer during the drying cycle. I have had an engineer out and he says the airflow...


if you have a very large load of clothes in the machine on the dry cycle, what tends to happen is that the clothes are not flapping around in the drum loosely but they are going around the drum in a big mass, with the result that they just get very very hot and steam will escape out the soapbox draw. When this happens, heater unit that becomes overheated ant the thermostats will eventualy cut out resulting in cold air being circulated instead of hot. You will need to have them replaced again. when replaced, put on a drycycle with only a few garments in the machine and you will see a big difference in it perfomance. washer/dryers are not very effective on the drying cycles with a full washload.
