Question about Washing Machines

My bosch nexxt washer doesn't spin by itself--when running. It spins freely by hand with little or no resistance. Is this a belt drive and is it easy to replace?

RE. Bosch Nexxt 100 series. Does not spin. I have cleaned all hoses, outflow and inflow. Opened the little circle door at bottom right and it is clear. The fan even spins during drain cycle. I do hear...


Check connectors on motor assembly they can become loose due to the high speed and vibration. Motor and drum are tied together. I had similiar problem with mine after spending a few hundred on a control board which made no difference.

It will not drain or spin


Hi

.

Check for any blockages, in the drain pipe. If that doesn't help you might have a bad pump

Also if the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Drum will not spin on any cycle.bosch nexxt 300.

If you are saying that it doesn't go into the spin cycle (but the drum turns in other settings) then I would suspect the control board - Item 333

My front loader fills with water, pumps and drains fine but the drum never moves or spins . Already cleaned pump, Checked belt and motor, belt is good and motor and drum spin freely.


Remove the back panel of the machine and operate it to check that the drive belts are being engaged to drive the drum. Observe the operation from a safe distance when you have the back off as there are live terminals within reach and you could be severely shocked if you come into contact with any one of them. Unplug the machine again before checking anything withing the workings.

Check you can move the drum freely by hand. 1. if its free - then check belt. 2. if it wines - check motor. 3. if does not move - you need to check for obstruction. hope this helps ....

Rotate the drum by hand. If the drum spins to freely without much resistance then it is possible that the drive belt has come off. Its unusual but it can happen. Remove back panel and refit the drive belt carefully.
If the machine is older than 5 years its possible that the wash motor brushes need replacing. If this is the case then you need to call a technician to replace them.

My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer is making a knocking and squeaking noise during the whole spin cycle. It sounds like it's coming from the drum mounts - what should we do?


My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer will not drain. I changed the lint filter, and insured that the drainage hose was free of debris. I removed all the wet clothes, wrung out the excess water, and redistributed the clothes. Still, no draining or spinning. Initially there was a humming sound, but now there is no sound at all when I try to restart the drain or spin cycles. All the lights are appropriately "on".
