Question about Bosch Washing Machines
Hello, To enter test program for WFK 2401 washers: 1) Set cycle knob to any "X" (reset) position 2) Press and hold Pre-Wash and Start buttons at the same time. While still holding Pre-Wash and Start buttons, turn unit on by pressing On/Off button. When test program has been entered: Start light will flash
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description it sounds like a faulty door lock mechanism. As you may or may not already know the 06 error code for the WFK2401 Bosch washer indicates an error in the lock has been detected.
This is from the Bosch service tips I have, so you should be able to check it with this info...
I also have this available to you in "pdf" and I can send you if you want to provide an email address since the "pdf" cannot be attached or sent via these post's.
You can also run a self diagnostic/test program by following these steps I've laid out, then let me know what you find...I suspect a faulty lock as I alluded to though.
3) Keep holding Pre-Wash and Start buttons (only) until digital display comes on (~ 5 seconds).
**HINT: Turning washer off at any time will end test program**
Digital display will show 00 for no faults or will show fault codes below:
Let me know what you find as I said or if you require further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa for your repair inquiry and good luck
please rate the solution I provided accordingly.
