Washer sounds like Helicopter

My Bosch nexxt Inspiration washer sounds lik a helicopter when I use anything over gentle spin. a repairman came and 'fixed' it for us about a couple months ago and it was okay for awhile, but its back to its original. I had bought it Brand new from 'Trail Aplliances'

    Same loud noise like a helicopter is landing on top of the house. Excessive vibration regardless of load and spin speed; was not balanced by retailer/installer at delivery - I got it balanced (right on the button, according to the Service Tech) - but still vibrates. Now I think I am hearing some bearing noise. Unit is only 3 months old; retailer - SK Lavery of West Hartford CT - has been uncooperative, one person outright rude and has failed to provide any meaningful support and zero corrective action. Not a happy camper.

SOURCE: TURN OFF ALARM

Assuming you have allready checked the operators manual, check again on page 19 for "Accoustic Signal".  To deactivate the signal select a program press two of the option buttons and hold until a short signal is emitted.  There you have it.

SOURCE: Washer stopped. E04 beeps but won't spin or continue any cycle. Have shut off machine but only makes a strange sound.

Error code E04 with a full load of laundry and water in the washer. Unplug the power to the washer. Take off the round cover plate in the front right. Mine did not turn clockwise or counter-clockwise, it was completely stuck. Used two flat tip screwdrivers to carefully pry it away, without damaging anything. The plate is a hard plastic but just pliable enough.
Once removed, you will see the pump (img_0001). Unscrew the pump cover slowly. There will be water coming out, so be prepared. In my case we had a LOT of water, so I drained it gradually into a couple of large garbage bags. Wrap the bag opening tightly against the pump surround to minimize spills (img_0002).
Once all the water is gone, remove the pump cover and clean out any items trapped in the pump and in the drain from the drum (img_0003). In my case it was some loose change and a small ColorCatcher sheet. Reassemble the pump and you're done.

SOURCE: bosch nexxt series 500. error eo4

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer or dryer ID doesn't
mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a
schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and
discovered that more than 4,700 people were asking
for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer
repair of my own and found an excellent video which
showed me how to take my machine apart. This
video made it possible for me to do my own repair. I
was so impressed with the video that when I saw all
these people needing help, I wanted to tell them
about it. If you have a top loader (washer) of the
direct drive type, this video might be a Godsend for
you. If you look at the back of your washer and the
panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove)
chances are you have a direct drive and this video
is just what you need. You can see this video at
www.acmehowto.com You will probably need
more help in determining what the problem is and
how to fix it. If your repair problem is a washer or
dryer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com
where they have very good trouble shooting and
repair information on most washers and dryers.
I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry
about the timer, they hardly ever go bad. Good
luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my
advice on fixya.

SOURCE: bosch 100 series will not drain

You need to check and clean the pump filter if you have not already done so.
This is located at the bottom front right of washer.
Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

I have a Bosch Nexxt 500 front load washer that will not drain when it gets to the spin cycle. The drain pump is clear and free from obstructions as well as the lines are clear and manually filling up


Sounds as if the rinse hold button has been set by accident.check the switches top left.if they are correct, then next query would be logic board has a problem, sometimes fixed by hair drying the board in cases of damp lack of use washer.if machine completes most cycle then I suspect rinse hold button is on or open circuit.

When my washer is on the last spin it is very loud, almost like it needs a muffler


You didn't say what model washer you have, but it sounds like you have a bad spin bearing. When bearing is bad it can be very noisey during spin, like a helicopter taking off. This means your washer needs a bearing and seals overhaul. This is generally a very expensive repair unless your washer is under some kind of warranty. The spin water seal has more than likely been slowly leaking, causing bearing to go bad.

If this sound starts slow and gets faster till its helicopter sounding you probly have a verry worn spot on the drive belt when that spot goes around the pully it will thump the faster ti spins the more frequent the sound If you tilt the washer back you should be able to see the belt to examine it if this the problem
replace the belt
Hope this helps

My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer is making a knocking and squeaking noise during the whole spin cycle. It sounds like it's coming from the drum mounts - what should we do?


My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer will not drain. I changed the lint filter, and insured that the drainage hose was free of debris. I removed all the wet clothes, wrung out the excess water, and redistributed the clothes. Still, no draining or spinning. Initially there was a humming sound, but now there is no sound at all when I try to restart the drain or spin cycles. All the lights are appropriately "on".

Bosch Nexxt washer will not spin


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
