    My Bosch 500 plus series washer is 2 weeks old. From day #1 I have had a problem with it spinning every 3 loads. I hate the thought of going through the entire cycle to try spinning again. It is frustrating and a very sad situation especially because of the high end price we paid for this lemon! Please help. I have a repairman coming out soon. Will post what he finds. Thanks all!

    I have read the posted instructions but I have a Bosch 300 and there is no delay start button. Is there another way to spin only?

Had a repair man here for the same issue. Learned two things:

1. Too much detergent causes 'soap lock.' The electronics will get confused when there's too many suds left after a rinse and shut the spin cycle down. That's why re-running the entire cycle without more detergent solves the problem. Use less detergent.

2. There is a way to manually get the spin cycle to run using diagnostics codes. Here's what my guy did:

a. Washer selection knob in OFF position.
b. Hold the 'Spin Selection' and 'Delay Start' buttons down at the same time.
c. While holding those two buttons, turn the Washing selector knob to Permanent Press-Cold.
d. Keep the buttons held down until the LCD control panel reads 'P:01'
d. Release buttons.
e. Use the 'Spin Selection' button to cycle thru the codes. Stop when it reads 'P:04' which is the spin cycle.
f. Press 'Start/Pause' button to begin the spin cycle.

I don't know what the other codes do but this should save you from having to run the entire wash cycle.

Hope that helps! Tim

My currys essential washing machine beeps during cycle and stops help


Remove the power for sometime , check if the spindle is FREE and moves. , Remove the back and under side to inspect for any damage to the motor or drive. check the power lines, check on the motor CAPACITOR. Now when powering check the VOLTAGE to the motor. if this is low or absent then the program controller unit is faulty.

Can I run my LG front load washer on just spin cycle only to take some additional water out of laundry?


I don't think the technicians read this question properly. I too am wondering since there is no specific spin setting - in other words - no button to choose for JUST spinning - is there a way to get this machine to JUST spin? I have from time to time a load that is accidentally set on delicate and it does not spin properly. the clothes are clean and I don't want to go through another entire cycle just to spin them out. thanks for your help.

Machine makes awful noise during any movement, spins very slowly, not enough to spin out. Making an awful noise, like stripped gears and won't drain


There are three reasons for such awful noise during spinning. Either the drum or the bearing turning the drum. Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

Thanks

Making an awful ratcheting noise during aggitation and spin cycles


Under the agitator there is a rachet mechanism that works the agitator. If it is stripped, it will skip until the next good tooth.. when it fails entirely the agitater will stop going back and forth. Its nylon and age along with overloading hastens its dearg.. If you can get the parts you can replace it yourself without difficulty. There is a single bolt in the center of the agitator top . Remove and loft agiyator straight up.

Tricity bedix spin query


First of all make sure you have selected the correct spin speed if there is more than one setting.
Check and make sure prog 4 is mot a delicate wash prog, as it will spin at a lower speed if this is the case.
If it has a filter, locate it and remove to clean.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
