Bosch Axxis Washer Front Loader - Drum won't turn

The drum and motor move freely when turning by hand, and you can hear a relay click when it's time to either wash or spin, however nothing happens. The problem is somewhat intermittent - it has worked a couple of times after it "stopped".

There is some sort of vacuum control (brown disk) mounted on the upper right hand side inside the machine. It has three screw adjustable controls. Could this part be faulty?

Thanks in advance

SOURCE: water wont drain

You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.

SOURCE: remove bosch axxis 2060 washer motor

Remove the back panel to get to the motor which is at the bottom at the back. Notice two bolts holding the motor into the mount. Remove these two bolts. Notice the back part of the motor is sitting in the mount with black rubber washers. Carefully, pull the motor forward, and this will be abit hard. You can take a flat head screw driver and tap down (in between) on each front plastic washer and the motor will slowly come forward. Becarefull because there is a wire harness still attached to the motor. You have to take wire cutters and clip the placstic band holding the wire harness to the motor. Then grip the harness and wiggle it free. Then remove the single wire also. Putting the belt back is a bit tricky too. Make sure you put back the two black rubber washers and the two front plastic washers.

the problem is more than likely the motor do the following tests.

.
first unplug it, pull it out so you have some work space, take off back plate, remove belt undo (should be white rectangle plastic block with wire attached), remove green+yellow wire undo bolts which hold motor to drum, gently ease out motor (please be aware of sharp edges), run screwdriver down 1 side of motor so you put it back together same way you took it apart, unscrew 4 bolts that hold motor together take top bit of don't loose spacer ring, place to 1 side, remove middle commutator the end the brushes are touching will need a proper clean wd40 maybe wipe clean with cloth so its not dull let dry, undo carbon brushes, take plate off also clean then clean what they were attached to when dry replace in reverse order gently (with new brushes) then replace back on machine plug back in and test by running spin program found at bottom of dail if i have my mod/num right let it get to full spin watch motor if it sparks the motor is defetive

Excellent information, Dennis Weid! This is exactly how it came apart. Follow his instructions and it is an easy job. My motor wasn't completely failed as it would run if I had the back off with washer on the spin cycle and gave the drum pulley a 'push start'. But it was shooting sparks as he described. On disassembly I saw that the commutator was very heavily grooved. It was to the point the wear indicator was nearly flush with the surface, like the tread on a bald tire. Time for a new motor.

If the motor is not spinning, you may have a burnt out motor or faulty Motor Control Board. Else, if the motor is spinning, fix the belt from the motor to the drum.

I have a brand new front loader and the drum is not turning during the cycle....it turns freely if I do it by hand


If you hear the motor running and the console doesn't put out an error code during the cycle, it sounds like your drive belt may have come off the motor / drum pulley. You should be able to access it by removing the back panel. Be careful- and unplug the machine first.

Good luck.

Motor not turning at all. Water goes in and pumps


Since you say relay sounds are heard, it shows the command is OK. The power to the motor is not reaching. It could be relay contact problem.

If you have a option of only spin, try this option. If it works the motor is OK. Otherwise you have to trace the power line and test it through a electrical line tester.

Machine doesn't start, just clicks like it's trying to reset


That clicking sound is most likely from your overheat safety switch located on the motor. This trips when there is too much bind or friction from the drum causing your motor to overheat I would check the drum bearing first by trying to turn the drum on your machine from the door area.

If it turns, it may be ok, but just to be sure, take the rear cover from your machine and remove the belt on the large pulley, then try starting the machine again. If you hear a hum and the clicking goes away you most likely have a bad drum bearing.

Drum makes loud whinning noise when spinning at high rpms.


Remove drive belt.and turn drum by hand, if it feels rough or sounds noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed., also check that the main drum pulley is not loose. If you think it is the bearings, then it is quite an expensive repair.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.
