Question about Bosch Washing Machines

1 Answer

I am handy with mechanical stuff, and can't afford a repairman for our 9- yr. old Bosch Axxis WFK 2401 washer. So I could use a repair/service manual, if there is such an animal out there, and I'd just buy the parts myself and give it a go. I sure could use some help in finding it. Thanks for the help, Fred Hagen Miami FL

    Hi, thanks for offering to help. We were in the process of washing a bathmat-type cotton rug around 2' X 3' in area. The mat gets extremely heavy when it is soaking wet, and tends to get off-center at the beginning of a spin cycle. We had the spin speed set at 400. As soon as the spinning began, the washer gave out a loud bang. When I managed to open the machine by setting it to "drain", I noticed that the gray rubber sealing ring behind the door had twisted out of its normal place. I suspect that the fix is pretty simple, but have no parts catalog or service manual to go by. Maybe I can do the repair without them, but I would feel a lot better if I had them.



    Let me know what else you need from me. Thanks again.



    Fred H.

Hi,

We own a Bosch- probably nearly 20 years old. I manged to get the parts I needed- but we live in France and I buy on-line from the UK!
I would go onto the Bosch site. You will probably find spares suppliers from which to inquire. Also I'm sure you could query the Bosch site directly.
I'm not criticizing your repair company but I will be very surprised if the part was not available from somewhere.

Good luck,
