Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Since the code is for the door, it makes sense that the washer will not work. Try adjusting the lock switch. It may be bad but sometimes you can adjust it and mess with it. Hopefully, the washer will then work. If not, you are going to need a new one. I still don't know why they have these. They cause more problems then they are worth. If you have a questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
As you do not mention 'filter' I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi. I have a Bosch precision wfg 2820 front load washing machine. The drum no longer spins round. The belt is still attached and seems to be ok. Any ideas where to look next? Thanks


You say seems to be ok.....can you hold the belt and turn the drum? Is there more that 3/4" slack in belt when you push it side ways? How old is this machine and have you ever had it serviced?

Bosch Maxx Instruction Manual


F:16 - Doors are not properly closed. Check the doors are closed with no obstacles.

F:17 - Water is not running. Check the tap, hose and filters. Also water pressure can be low.

F:18 - Too much water remaining. Stop the drying program and start Spin program. Otherwise something is bolcking the water exit from the machine.
