Question about Bosch WFMC 3200 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Some of the lights on the front of the machine do not light up, the buttons when pushed do not light up or seem to work. The washer makes a knocking noise when you first start the machine,the door has to be shut very hard so that you do not hear the knocking when you turn on the machine (sometimes you have to close the door very hard several times), the washer did not rinse the clothes today, I had to manually turn knob to the spin cycle and then it was very slow to turn not really spinning, finally I took out all the soaking wet clothes and rinsed them in my kitchen sink, what a mess!!!Help!!!I need to fix the machine myself as I cannot afford to call the only certified Bosch person in this area is a known dishonest person. I can replace the electronic panels if this is the problem, what do you think???

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Everything seems to work, door locks, but water won't flow


Check the water solenoid valve, it may have failed. A quick test is to use hot wash rather than cold wash. If the hot water works, then your cold water valve has failed.

Kenmore Elite problem


1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.
