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.

My Bosch WFK2401 washer has stopped filling. The cycle will count down and the pump will run to drain (but nothing to drain!). I have checked the supply lines, there is water and the filter screens are...


I suspect the solenoid on the water input connection has failed, this is the unit that allows water into the machine , if you know a bit open the lid and you should see this just inside behind the cold water connection.

The pump uses an impeller to move the water into the drain pipe. Take the lower front off and you will see the impeller cover, behind the filter.

Will not cold water wash.


Hello there
I have a question for you will it fill with cold water or not if not your water fill valve in the back of the machine might be at fault it has a solonoid that sits on top of it and energizes it when the water is called for so first verify that your cold water is going to the machine if so than you can be assured that the water valve will need to be changed or repaired
Please keep me posted ok
Best regards Mike

Will not start on some wash programs, such as 40 or 60 fast spin, but will work when 40 woolens program selected, and other delicate programs too.


Check that the hot water tap is on or if the valve filter is blocked. If both these are ok, it may need a new hot water valve.
Hope this helps.

My bosch wfk 2401 when i start the wash everything is fine then after a couple of minutes it starts beeping the error code 01. i have checked to make sure the filters are cleaned out and that the water...


Hello and welcome to fixya.

I'll start by saying you're right the "01" error code is indicating a fill problem has been detected by the control.

Have you tried just a "cold" water wash ? If not try selecting "quick wash" and on the dial turn it to #1 "cold" in the cotton setting see what happens. Do the same and select #3 "hot". If the error occurs in one and not the other, observe and either focus on the hot water valve or the cold main wash valve ( I don't think it is the cold prewash valve or the error would occur immediately ).

In fact I suspect it is the main wash cold valve ( dual valve ) since you haven't indicated the error occurs during prewash and the hot water valve is energized in prewash by design to help rinse out the detergent no matter what cycle or temp. you selected.

Having said all that, here's what you're dealing with. Even though you appear to have sufficient water flow as you stated you checked for, the electronic control doesn't think it is correct.
There are several factor's which could possibly be causing this error, a couple you've mentioned.

They are...

 Water supply turned off. ( obviously not in this case )

 Water inlet hose filters (strainers/screens) blocked. ( you've said you cleaned them out )

 Water pressure too low. ( must be no lower than 14.5psi and a max. of 145psi )

 Water inlet valve(s) has failed. ( this doesn't appear likely...at least at first, not completely failed based on your description...but the control may think it has. If you have an ohm meter you can check it. the coils should have a value of between 2.7 and 3.3k ohms. That means 2700ohms and 3300ohms. If not within those values the control will detect the value being incorrect , hence displaying the "01" error. Change the valve, Bosch part # 265772, or repairclinic.com # 467537.
The Hot water valve if need be is Bosch part # 171295 or repairclinic.com # 423900 )

 Control module has failed. ( Not very likely either...but possible...if not the valves. )

Let me know what you find as I will watch for your reply here. Thanks for visiting "fixya". Please take a moment and rate the info provided for you here today.

Let me know if you require further assistance.

Thanks and good luck.

Bosch WFK 2401 hot water wont shut off even if you turn power off


I can help , If the unit is leeting water in with the power off the only thing it can be is the water inlet valve , it is the componet you connect your water line to under the unit behind the front lower panel. Tell me if you have any other questions and let me know how this works out.
