Question about Bosch Nexxt 300 Series WFMC2201UC
Washed a small but long rug (4 to 5' long 2' wide) on kid care cycle and 2/3 of the way in it error out. I tried to start the cycle over again becasue the door is locked and I cannot open it. But it error out again so I tried to but it on the delicate cycle and 10 mintues later it error and then I tried the hand wash cycle and again error. Then I tried to put it on the drain option and the motor just makes a low and subtle but consistent nosie like it is maybe stuck. If I could get into the machine I could see if it is part of the rug that is stuck but I cannot open it. Is there a way to open it even if there is water in it??? HELP!
Since I am the husband of this poster, and fixed the washer last night I thought I would post the details to help anyone else out with similar problems.
So, the issue was a clogged up drain line, and it needed to be cleaned. here is how to do it.
remove the circular access panel at the front lower right of the washer. To do it, pry up the side of the circle near the small hole, and at the same time twist the thing clocwise.
Next you see a big hand turnable plug. And also a white plastic zip tie hanging. If you pull the white zip tie downward, the door will release allowing you to get the stuff out, in our case a big rug. Also start unscrewing the plug slowly. Water will leak out, lots of it until the washer drains. In my case we have a floor drain underneath the washer, so I let it all go down there. You may need to get a small pan or something and dump it a few times.
Once the plug is removed, the clog was obvious. there is an impeller and screen leading out to the drain, it was completely clogged with pieces of the rug. I pulled it all out, put the plug screw back in and ran a cycle with no clothes in. It all went smoothly after that! good luck.
