Sounds like the motor brushes need replacing, you will have to remove the motor to do this.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feedback.

SOURCE: Bosch Classixx WAE24162GB/03 motor not working, have cxd brushes

There is a thermal cutout in the motor, but unfortunately it is not resettable.
The only way to be sure if it is faulty, is to check it for continuity with a meter, if it is open circuit, it can be bypassed, but this then leaves the motor unprotected, but it will prove if the fault is in the motor, or elsewhere.
It could be a blown track on the control board caused by the brushes shorting, in addition, to an open circuit thermal cut-out.

Testimonial: "I had already decided to split the motor and check it out thoroughly and yes it was the thermal cut out open circuit. Fixed and all working again. Ta."

SOURCE: f21 fault on Bosch Classixx

Hi.

Here the reset procedure:

  1. Ensure that there is no water in the washer.
  2. Turn the timer knob knob to OFF position.
  3. Close the washer door.
  4. Turn the timer knob to 6 o clock and wait until you see the start/pause button flashing.
  5. Press and hold SPIN button.
  6. Advance the timer knob to next part of cycle (7 o clock position).
  7. Wait 5 seconds.
  8. Leave the button.
  9. Set the timer knob to off position.
  10. Trip circuit breaker for two minutes and restart if the reset did not work.

If that does not work, then there is still a problem. F21 indicates that problem can be motor, wiring or electronic control module. Try the reset a couple of times if that does not work at first try.

Regards.

Ginko.

Error code e21: Bushes replaced by engineer but unable to reset machine. E21 still shows. Bosch totally unhelpful.


the electronics lock out during power surges like you would get from brush failure giving e 21 error. you have to access service test prog to reset this, and it is not in public domain.
i do know how to reset it though but difficult to explain on this forum you may find a you tube video if you search online.

Tip

Washing machine motor issues with brushes and carbon dust read this if your...


due to carbon dust build up around the drum motor in most washers that have non linear motor that have carbon brushes
you can get a state of error i call a ghost error
as its just due to the build up of carbon powder around the motor its connector and stator coils {speed pickup}
as the brushes deplete you end up with a pile of it building up between the brush contact and the motor housing leading to electricity leaking to earth of the motor metals

so a stiff dry new paint brush and give the motor a good brush around to remove the conduction path the dust creates

this effects the low voltage sensors in the motor like its speed control etc
leading to the mcu controller board miss diag the motor as bad and you get a E or F motor error
also this can and will trip your homes MCB detector and ECLD mains power switch

as i say its a ghost error and easily solved

any engineer worth his salt when fitting new brushes or even looking at this fault
will do this first to try to clear the fault if the brushes are aok
before he condems the controller board ... as bad

a new set of brushes should be part of a service you should carry out
much like an mot when its outside its warrenty period

and brushing out the old dust
should be done anyway when new brushes are fitted when needed
or there condition checked as still ok

basically brushes should be about at least 3/4 " long for a life left of about a year
and have enough preasure on the armature to ensure good current flow too it via the stator
if you have motor F or E fault conditions or a machine that trips your mains on spin etc
this prob needs done anyway
a set of brushes it cheep and a brush is also cheep

so give it a good brush out
then reset the machine
you power off at the mains
you hold in a button or two
you power on at the mains
ive read some machine need the program switch to be placed and then dialed like a safe to reset the main board from some types of motor fault
caused by carbon dust build up typical candy auto washers.. and others
they make it hard to make people money

I have a Bosch dishwasher that had error code E24. DW would work if door was opened about 1 minute into washing. New drain pump. No fix. New error code of E21. New control unit, still same problem.


E21 is a circ pump blockage issue. Check that all hoses are clear, unit drains completely. Depending on the age, a new circulating pump may be needed or new motor capacitor.

Bosch logixx f:43code E-Nr. WAS32741AU/20 FD 8901 200134


F:43 meant motor error. We have electronics engineers as father-in-law (lucky). We checked motor - all good. Replaced worn brushes (cheap replacement). Still f:43 flashing after reset. Replaced PCB (Power Control board) with one that we ordered from Bosch factory and installed. Working like new. New brushes make light buzz which is normal.

Error message e21. Bosch dishwasher


My mom had the same issue with her fancy bosch dishwasher! It ended up being a hose, if I remember correctly. Her problem also took two repair trips, I know for sure it was not a new motor issue. I would have someone check the hoses and the electrical panel.

F21 has appeared on my Bosch classixx 6 1200 model


F21 normally indicates a fault with the motor or the main control board. It could be the motor brushes need changing.
If you've changed the brushes you now need to erase the stored errors and try the machine again.
.
Turn the knob to off.
Close the door.
Turn the knob to 6 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
The start/pause should begin flashing.
Press and hold the spin button. (the spin button is the one that changes the spin speed, it may be marked "RPM")
Turn the knob to 7 o'clock position.
Wait 2 seconds.
Release the button.
Turn the knob to off.
.
This should erase the error code and get you running again.
.
If the error code returns, you have a problem with the motor, wiring or main control.
If the machine won't go into diagnostics to erase the error code, it would suggest a faulty control board.
.
Try it several times to see if you get it reset.
.
Note, If the start button doesn't flash, just carry on trying to erase the codes.

Bosch classixx 6 1400 machine stopped working during cycle f21 on display


F21 relates to a motor or control board fault.

However, it is also caused by spikes in the mains and can be spurious.


To reset it.

Turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position, 12 o'clock.

Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.

Press and hold the spin button.

While holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.

Continue holding the spin button for about 5 seconds.

Release the button.

Turn the knob to off.

When your turn it back on it should have cleared the error code
