Question about Bosch WFK 2401

1 Answer

WFK 2401 DOOR does not open anymore

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 20 minutes, then the lock finally unlocks.
This does not always work either.

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.

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,

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.
