Hi,
With the machine empty, rotate the drum by hand. if it spins freely, the belt has come off. if not, then the motor brushes should be inspected. If these prove to be ok, then the most likely cause is the motor run capacitor that would need replacement.
These three items are under $20 each.

If the problem persists after capacitor replacement, then the motor needs checking that it is not burnt out, and the last possibility is the control board. Both of these items run to $150 each.

If you do not feel competent to check these yourself, then employ a competent technician who will.

Replacement parts are available mail order quite easily.

Thanks for using Fixya! If this enables a solution to the problem, please rate accordingly Thank you.

Drum not working on bosch washing machine


I would say that the brushes want replacing in the motor, access to the motor is by removing the rear panel, remove the belt, and undo screws securing motor, remove motor, brushes are located at rear end of motor.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks

My bosch classix 1200 fl wont spin or drain


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Plug off the wall first. Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Be prepared for water, drain out from drain hose. Check filter for clogging, clean out. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes (at terminal end of motor), if they are any shorter than 1 cm replace brushes.

IF APPLIANCE IS RUNNING OK I WOULDNT WORRY TOO MUCH THE CLICKING YOURE HEARING IS PROBABLY THE HEATER RELAYS SWITCHING ON AND OFF AND THE MOTOR REVERSING RELAY ALSO NORMALLY THEY WOULD NOT BE HEARD OVER NORMAL RUNNING NOISES OF MACHINE.

Bosch Exxcel 1200 Express Washing Machine spin not working


I had the same problem- machiine not spinning and a few days later not turning at all. Display would go from 11min to 1min.
I did 2 things - 1) changed the brushes on the motor- cost £7.50 .
2) whilst working under the machine disconnected pipe from drum to pump and emptied it- found 2 coins in the bellows.
