Question about Bosch Nexxt Premium WFMC6400UC Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Door is locked

I ran my washer on a quick wash yesterday, when I heard it beeping I assumed it had finished. On the display the letter "E" was flashing. the start/pause button are flashing also. I turned the washer to the off position and turned it back to another programme, the same display showed"E" and I can't get the door open. I have laundry stuck in the washer. I called for service but it's an outrageous price, I want to try and trouleshoot myself before I have to pay out $200.00 - and that's without parts.

Thanks
Vanessa

    I have the same problem - running a load using HOT, added an item during the wash cycle, when I closed the door it started flashing E: and beeping - can't open the door and can't get it to do anything.

Ok this can be a bit messy.
It can be that the water level is too high. Or temp level was too high. Empty the tub by removing the filter behind the service door.
Get a few towels handy because it is quite a bit of water.
Than try to power up again. This should now work.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'F' for fault, 'dL' for door lock and you don't hear it operating. It's pretty clear there is a problem either with the lock operating solenoid (highly likely 'cos you don't hear it operate) or the door lock sensor (not so likely).
Either you need to replace it or it needs replacing by a service engineer. Sorry, no other option ;-0(

Good luck,

Washer- lights go on, but it won't click/lock to start the load s


it is probably the door lock asm itself but lets try the diagnostic mode. Usually on the newer duets when the lock quits you get a quick series of beeps upon pressing start.
On the old style (red leds, no teardrop) set drain/spin cycle, no spin option press prewash 4 times quickly
new models (green leds, teardrop front) the old way may also work but will only start factory test, no code display. instead with unit off, select any one option key, press and hold 4 secs, release 4 secs and repeat till all lights come on (3 or 4 times) then it will flash any f codes, press that same key again to advance to the next code if any (most recent code first) then it will go to display software versions (n:xx etc)
when it shows C:00 the door should lock at C:01 it will fill with cold water this is the factory test routine it will advance automatically. some steps may take a while but should complete them all and turn off. we are of course interested in if it locks here and advances. a F code may still get displayed.

Washer will not spin or completely drain


you could have problem with door lock. or lid switch. this part senses if the door is close.
if it is not functioning, it would interpret it as an open door and will not spin.will not drain either.

Door lock


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To my knowledge, there are two (2) versions of a Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer: a) ATF6000ES1 and b) ATF6000ES0, pls which one do you have?

If something is wrong with the washer, it could tell us the error codes and therefore would give us a general idea where to start the diagnosis. Other than the "Door Lock" is not lighted, anything else out of the ordinary? Or is the unit non-functional since it senses that the door is not lock and therefore would not engage any cycle?

To read the error codes, pls:
  • plug the washer to the mains;
  • wake the washer by pressing any button;
  • wait for a few seconds to stabilize the electronics/circuitry;
  • press and hold the Start/Pause and Cancel buttons simultaneously.
As long as the buttons are held, the failure code will appear in the display as an E followed by two (2) numbers, a number and a letter or two (2) letters. The control will beep and the Door Lock, Wash, Rinse and Final Spin indicators will flash. Pls note and postback the error code displayed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
