Question about Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Bosch WFL 2060 makes a scraping sort of noise when it starts to spin. It sounds like the drum is rubbing on something. The noise is better when the drum is up to full speed. Sounds okay when it is agitating. Could this be fixed by installing a new bearing set? Is this a job that can be done by a experienced homeowner fix-it type of person? Thanks - HH

A loud whining which gets louder as time goes by is usually an indication of bearing failure...When water passes through the seal on the pulley shaft it gets into the bearings and rusts them..They are no longer smooth..Hence the noise! Slop in the inner bowl increases as the bearings collapse... more in detail:-- If the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly and the outer shell with the tub bearing.
Sometimes the inner basket support will crack, this can give an clicking or banging noise as well.
Quite a large job . here is the link where you can see the pictures of this parts as well as buy them if you want:--
Its more advisable to be done by a experienced tech as it is bit tricky to handle and fix this parts properly.

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Bosch WFL 2060 makes loud noises when spinning. The drum seems to be very loose and it crashes to the sides of the hull when it spins. i can't find any means to fix it in its position? What can i do?


Welcome to FixYa.

Based on what you`re describing you need a major ocerhaul...or at the very least a rear bearing and inner basket assembly.

This is a major job any way you slice it, however if you want to attempt or are capable of performing the repair I can send you a complete service manual via email.

That means you`ll need to reply to me here and post your email address and I`ll send it in a "pdf" attachment.

I would recommend an authorized B/S/H/ service provider though as it is quite involved, but that`s not my place to say if you feel you can do it.

The part`s are...

# 215113 - Inner Drum/Basket
# 236013 - Outer - rear tank/tub assy.

you could try to replace individual bearings and the seals, but believe me it won`t save you much because either way the inner drum is going to be shot, specifically the spindle, and by the time you try to repair all that you may a well have done the outer tub & basket routs.

Let me know how you make out. Like I said I can send you the info on "how to" but you`ll need to do the work or hire a pro.

Good luck.

Doesnt spin on spincylce and just makes a rattling noisewff1475 bosch

The rattling noise is probably something in the pump.
If it is not draining properly, this will stop it spinning.
Check pump filter, if clean, then I would suggest you check the brushes in the motor for wear, as badly worn brushes will also stop it spinning.

Drum makes loud whinning noise when spinning at high rpms.

Remove drive belt.and turn drum by hand, if it feels rough or sounds noisy, then the main drum bearings have failed., also check that the main drum pulley is not loose. If you think it is the bearings, then it is quite an expensive repair.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks.
