Question about Bosch Classixx WVF 2402 Front Load Washer/Dryer

Open Question

I have inherited a Bosch WVF2401. It doesn't seem to dry at all. Have been trying to dry small loads and after one hour washing still wet. Don't have a manual so have no idea which bits to clean out/check etc. Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

SOURCE: smelly washing machine!

The black cover you have removed should be the only "filter"/trap in the drainage system inside the machine. The eggy smell you described has to be caused by one of 4 things; 1. Smell coming back through the drain, indicating that there is no water trap - easiest way to check this would be to disconnect the drain hose from the wall, smell the drain and see if it is the same smell or not. if so, install a water trap, or arrange the drain hose in a loop to form one. 2. Decomposing organic matter in the wet system. There could have been something in a pocket or that accidentally got in with the laundry that has somehow got stuck somewhere - possibly in a filter but also limescale can trap dirt in the system and various items can get stuck in all sorts of places. This can be solved nearly always by running through the cleaning procedure described on this link; http://ezinearticles.com/?Cleaning-Your-Washing-Machine&id=109993 if it doesnt work the first time - try it again - sometimes it can take a couple of tries but nearly always works great. there are also stronger chemicals than vinegar that you can use to clean the machine with, (but they should only be used in extreme circumstances as other components can be degraded) white vinegar is usually all you need. To remove the vinegar smell afterwards if necessary - put a teaspoon or two of baking soda through the machine on an empty hot wash. 3. Decomposing organic matter in the dryer outlet duct (or possibly in the lint filter area, but unlikely, also possibly under the machine up inside where the workings are) - rodents and insects and moss and funghi etc all love the warm moist air that comes out of the dryer and they always can find a way into the duct - something dies or poops in the duct and the smell can be unbearable - easy way to check this is to look in the duct if you can, and see if the smell gets worse if you have the dryer on. Clean the duct out with mild dilute bleach if this is the problem. 4. Some liquid detergents cause a build up slowly in the system that smell quite sewage-like (possibly some powders too, but not so common) - try cleaning out the machine and switching to a different detergent to check if that's the case. Unfortunately the Bosch website manuals page is down today - they will have a manual for your model almost certainly - it is an excellent site; http://www.boschappliances.com/site_tools/documents.cfm try again in a day or two - and you should get a user guide downloaded. An overheating motor is unlikely to be the cause of this smell, "eggy" is not associated with motor or electronic overheating problems. Hope this helps, if you cant cure the smell with these tips, then unfortunately the machine has to be taken apart and the offending item cleaned out - if you fancy trying this yourself then please ask again and we could talk you through it, Good luck :)

brushes usually available on ebay,

if the drum rotates but does not spin, this could likely be brushes or component problem (i.e triac or relay) on control PCB. - the latter was the problem i had and this was easily spotted as a blackened track on the Relay on the pcb.

Brushes should be ~£5. - check the existing brushes first before buying them.

fitting is easy, BUT a word of warning..which you probably know anyway..
before meddling though in the machine, locate the large capacitor and with electical screwdriver and discharge all the terminals to earth first! - YOU MUST DO THIS TO AVOID ELECTRIC SHOCK!! - even if the machine is unplugged.

remove motor & undo the back plate to release old brushes.
clean of motor of any excess carbon dust, - this can eventually cause arching if not cleaned away.

reassemble and fit all plugs back.
THEN TAKE 5 MINUTES TO CHECK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE BEFORE SWITCHING ON. -
Do not rush anything - take your time.

We get the error code eo4 on our Bosch front loader, and it does not spin.


Hi, "E04" means the "suds or pump is blocked"

Bosch E04 Solution:

  1. Get some towels and if possible a wet/dry vac. If the machine drained, it won't be too bad. If your machine is stuck full of water, I can't say! I'd guess you could get wet.
  2. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner)
  3. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.
  4. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole to 6'oclock and it should come free.
  5. Once the door out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hands. There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where I held my wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded. Take your time and keep unscrewing it until it is free.
  6. Pull out the trap that you just unscrewed and you'll most likely see the item that caused the E04 error code. There is an side of the trap that is marked that it needs to be installed facing downward, so watch for that when you put it back in.
  7. Read these direction upside down and backwards to put it all back together.
  8. Run a load and watch for leaks. You could leave the door off until you are sure you screwed the cap in tight enough.

Washer just stopped, won't do anything, door is locked and I cant get it open its a bosch 900 rpm front load.


you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove any water this will also unlock the door the check the drain pump for anything that would be blocking the flow of water

take off the small front cover to the drain pump pull the whit plastic zip tie and this will unloock the door.

Yes - I get this - you have to wipe the inside of the drum rubber ring - not just throught the groves but sludge seems to collect in between the rubber ring and metal drum; you will need quite a bit of kitchen towel!

Clothes still wet aftre drying cycle over


It sounds as if the wash cycle isn't terminated by pumping the rinse water out and spinning to rid the clothing of most of the water.
Most dryers sense moisture but I think they all will have a maximum run-time to prevent possible fires if the programmer fails to shut them down at the end of the drying cycle.
I would watch the machine and when it started the drying cycle, I would shut it off and check for surplus water that hadn't been pumped out as it should have been.

I ALWAYS START WITH VENTING WHEN CALLED WITH LONG DRYING TIMES BUT I HAVE SEEN WHERE ONLY HALF OF THE HEATING ELEMENT IS WORKING, WHICH IS PRETTY RARE. A NORMAL LOAD WOULD BE WHATEVER THE WASHER HAD IN IT WHICH WOULD BE LOOSLY FILLED TO THE TOP ROW OF HOLES IN THE WASHER TUB. THE ONLY OTHER QUESTION I WOULD ASK IS IF THE WASHER SEEMS TO BE SPINNING OUT PROPERLY AND IF THE CLOTHES ARE GOING INTO THE DRYER TOO WET.

Dishwasher not drying


Same problem here. I read the manual very carefully. "OptiDry", "ExtraDry", "EcoDry", "condensation drying" -- lots of fancy words to cover the simple fact -- they DO NOT DRY the dishes. There is no heating element. I wish they would just state this up-front. Air drying the dishes for 24 hours after each wash is not workable for most users...
