Question about Bosch Washing Machines
This usually indicates that there is an issue with the motor or rear bearing. This can be isolated by first removing the power from the machine the removing the inner rear panel from the machine. You should be able to see the belt and motor. You can spin the belt off easily then reapply power and place the machine in a spin. Keep clear of the motor as is spins around 18000 rpm. Let the motor stop and remove power from the machine. You can spin the inner tub by spinning the large pulley by hand, if there is a excessive noise or grinding feel then the bearing will need replacing. The belt can be spun back on and the machine run with the rear cover off but again be very mindful as this cover is there for a reason.
In most of the cases the moise is from the motor itself. There are rebuild kits available but they are mostly a waste of money. The motor if worn should be replaced. They should carry a multi-year warranty, check your manual.
