Question about Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer
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
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.
