Question about Bosch WFK 2401

Bosch WFK 2401 Door does not unlock after a cycle, stops at indicator "1"

My Bosch WFK 2401 is probably over 5 years old(don't know exactly since I got it from my previous home owner) and stops at the end of the cycle time remaining, 1, at any setting, and does not unlock.
The only way I can unlock it at this point is by turning it to "X" setting, turn the switch off, press both Start and Pre-Wash buttons simultaneously, then turn the switch on. This sets it to "00"(default)mode. I then turn the machine off, turn it back on after 5 minutes, then the lock finally unlocks.

The door also has trouble locking, not unless I slam the door shut a couple of times. Obviously there is something wrong with the door mechanism or door computer on/off/unlock/lock chip(?) Is this something I can fix on my own by replacing the door lock part? How do I even open the rubber part?I did find a part for the lock, or is this far more complicated, like the whole processor is gone.

    Same issue with the door.  


    Machine won't start unless slamming door shut and/or tapping the front of the machine...


    Has anybody solved this?  Please help :)

SOURCE: installing carbon brushes on Bosch WFK 2401

Remove rear panel of washer.
Remove drive belt.
Unscrew the 2 bolts that hold motor to tub back.
Remove motor plug
Lever notor back with a screwdriver or similar, keeping a firm hold on motor.and remove motor
At the rear end of motor away from pulley you will see the brushes and the armature.
Remove brushes, and if there is less than 4 or 5mm of carbon left, then replace them.
Lightly clean the armature with emery cloth.
Refit in reverse order. Test.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

I have a Bosch washer model WFK 2401 and I need a new pressure switch. The repair company I'm dealing with says that they can't get the part from Bosch any longer. Do you have any suggestions for...


Hi,

We own a Bosch- probably nearly 20 years old. I manged to get the parts I needed- but we live in France and I buy on-line from the UK!
I would go onto the Bosch site. You will probably find spares suppliers from which to inquire. Also I'm sure you could query the Bosch site directly.
I'm not criticizing your repair company but I will be very surprised if the part was not available from somewhere.

Good luck,

John C

Our Bosch WFK 2401 keeps filling with hot water - even when a cold cycle is selected.


The problem is the water inlet valve has failed. Although it is only the cold water the whole valve needs to be replaced. There are 2 solenoids on the valve 1 for cold 1 for hot the cold water solenoid has failed. The reason it works in the softner is it uses a separate solenoid to let water in there.
