I have determined one of the reasons ( I feel this is the primary reason) why many BOSCH washing machines will not drain the water, Bosch uses the same drain pump in many of their 500-800 series washing machines, part number 436440. The drain pump is a electrical controlled magnetic driven pump. Simply a electrical current produces an electrical field which a magnet rotates, spinning the pump blades. I have determined that the internal seal on the pump part is allowing water to leak into the magnet area of the pump. This is causing corrosion, and water build up around the magnet, interfering with the magnetic field. How I came to this conclusion. After removing the end of the pump, and allowing the water to drain out, drying out the pump, the pump will work as advertised. But of course the pump cannot be used in this condition. A new pump is required. To determine this yourself, if the machine is not under warranty (good luck getting service). Unplug machine, remove back panel, unplug the drain pump, remove drain pump (separating the drain pump from the large plastic holder, there are three screws holding it to the housing). You can shake the pump, and if water comes out of it this is most likely the problem. Now hook the pump back up to its electrical feed, and place it on a rubber sheet. Set the machine to drain, if the pump attempts to spin then stops, or hums this is the problem.

Try unplugging machine for 30 seconds then plug back in then lift and close the lid 5 times which will reset the motor. Try the spin cycle if it works you may have had a power surge which took the motor out and just needed reset. If it fails you may have a bad inline fuse or motor.
