Check if there is water inside the machine when the cycle stops. If the water is not drained completely, the machine will not advance to spin.

If water is not being drained, the first step is checking the drain hose at the back and accessing the pump, to check the hose connected to the pump and cleaning the filter.

If that does not fix the problem, and machine does not drain or spin, then the pump must be tested energizing it directly, and the pressure switch that determine if water has been drained, tested by jumping.

If there is no water, then a common cause for the problem is the motor itself. If the carbon brushes in the motor are worn, then the motor may still work at regular speed and may not spin.

If there is no water, the pressure switch may also still be the culprit. If the pressure switch does not open, then the machine will keep draining forever, as the control board "thinks" that there is still water because of the faulty switch. The PS is tested jumping it.

If the problem is none of the above, test lid switch, wiring and then eventually replace the control board. The electronic control gets replaced only after all the rest had been tested.

Most testing and repair described here are suitable for a trained technician.

To get parts or to arrange repair call Bosch at the number listed on the use and care manual.

Drum not working on bosch washing machine

I would say that the brushes want replacing in the motor, access to the motor is by removing the rear panel, remove the belt, and undo screws securing motor, remove motor, brushes are located at rear end of motor.
Please rate my solution.

My bosch classix 1200 fl wont spin or drain

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Plug off the wall first. Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Be prepared for water, drain out from drain hose. Check filter for clogging, clean out. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes (at terminal end of motor), if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.

I have a Bosch Classix 1200 washing machine that will not spin, all you can hear is a pump noise but the spin motor just does not appear to start at all.

With the machine empty, rotate the drum by hand. if it spins freely, the belt has come off. if not, then the motor brushes should be inspected. If these prove to be ok, then the most likely cause is the motor run capacitor that would need replacement.
These three items are under $20 each.

If the problem persists after capacitor replacement, then the motor needs checking that it is not burnt out, and the last possibility is the control board. Both of these items run to $150 each.

If you do not feel competent to check these yourself, then employ a competent technician who will.

Replacement parts are available mail order quite easily.

Thanks for using Fixya! If this enables a solution to the problem, please rate accordingly Thank you.
