This could be a block in the pump or motor brushes would go for the pump

Hi, the spin cycle on our bosch wfk 2401 suddenly stopped working. The wash and rinse cycle works but when it's time for the spin cycle to begin, the machine hums as though the motor is straining...


If there is motor humming while the spin cycle is ON , please confirm if the motor also heats up-- take caution not to touch live points. Also if you manually push the motor with care so see if the spin starts up then the capacitor (this assists with the starting) can be weak or faulty.
Remove and check with a mains tests and see if the charge retains, if not change. Other wise check if there is friction on the motor or drive.

I have a Bosch washer, model number WFK 2401 that washes and rinses, but suddenly won't spin. It just sits and counts down until the end of the spin cycle and then signals the end of the wash cycle as...


I just had the same problem last week Aug 1 2009
on our WFK 2401 purchased in 2001

If you hear no motor spinning when it should then it's something
with the motor. If you hear motor spinning, esp spin cycle, but
the drum doesn't spin, then probably broken belt ($30 part).

Since I work on cars (this is very much like an alternator+belt) and wanted to avoid a $100 service call (just to come to house) and
at least try for a quick fix before buying a new washer, I opened the back, confirmed belt looked ok, so tried
replacing the brushes in the motor, and it worked.

For a good description on how to do this see
http://dossy.org/2007/05/lots-of-miles-on-our-bosch-wfk2401uc-washer-motor/
I took some pics, and time permitting will post more details
to this dossy site to help fellow owners.
I purchased the brushes at partstap.com for $50 (incl tax+ship)

Washer doesn't complete cycles


Sounds like an electronics problem. Get a Bosch repair person to look at it. Hopefully, they can reset the computer inside. Otherwise, it's a part that costs more than $200, as I recall, plus too much to do the work. Bosch's 1-800 person once advised me to unplug my washer - a model 2401 - for a half-hour as a way to reset the electronics. You might try that. Pray to the appliance gods. Maybe your machine is still under warranty. Trouble is, you'll probably have to wait for days until an authorized, over-priced repair person comes to visit. Bosch is way behind in service levels here in the U.S. They know it, but it's not worth their time or money to fix, it seems. A long story ....
