My BOSCH Axxis 24201UC washing machine displays "E:16" (which means "Door not closed properly") all the time, no matter what, and is inoperable

Check that the door switch is closing when you close the door with the latch mechanism. Unit will be dead unless the switch is closed.

Water coming out the door in rinse cycle

First thing to check is that you don't have a piece of clothing stuck between the door seal. I have had that with a commercial machine. A towel was causing the leak. If it does it on every wash, then either the door lock needs adjusting for tightness or you need a new door gasket.

Piece of clothing caught in spinning wheel

Hello, you a side load washing machine. The spinning wheel is a counter weight for the wash tub.
The tub out seal that fit around the tub is worn out. News a new seal. Unplug the washing machine and remove from cover with the door. Once you have the front panel with the door the tub seal is attached to the front by lock clips. Remove the clips or screws. Now, check the interior seal and make sure does have any hole in it. If there is holes then walter will leak on to the floor.

Washer motor humms and won't spin after filing up with water

remove the water pump from the motor but not from the hoses and start the washer. if it starts then you have a sock or something caught inside the pump holding the motor. remove the object or replace the pump if needed. if the motor wont start then unplug the washer,remove the motor and turn by hand. if it feels hard replace motor. if it moves then leave motor out and move the gear case where the motor connects by hand. if it wont move then 2 things may happen. 1)gear case lockup or a piece of clothing caught between the tubs.

if the washer agitates but wont spin with the humming sound then I say the later. a piece of clothing caught between the tubs.

Fridgidaire Front Load Washer

This is usually an indication that the rear tub bearing is starting to go bad. The bearing is located in the rear shell of the wash tub and cannot be replaced. In order to repair, you would have to replace the entire rear shell because the bearing is actually molded into the plastic. This is common with front loader washing machines. Another possibility could be items getting caught in the rubber door boot and leaving rubber marks. However, normally this will be associated with a leak somewhere. Inspect the entire door boot and clean in behind the rubber. Inspect for any rips, tears, or places where clothes can get caught. I have experienced clothing getting snagged and actually pulling the door boot off. If the marks continue to show up on your clothes (they may even turn a brownish color) I would look into an estimate on how much it would cost to have the tub bearing replaced. It is not an easy repair, and it is not cheap. The cost usually runs around $500. I hope this helps.
