Question about Bosch Dishwashers

Open Question

Hello, I have a washing mashine (BOSCH MAXX WFL 2860), just a few years old. Right now it wont start the centrifuge at the end of the programme, it will just deliver a strange, low grinding sound. Is this something that can be fixed? A common problem maybe with a common fix? regards, Thomas

Re: the gritty residue Check your spray arms. My Bosch arms clog regularly with little things. I have to unscrew the arm and run water through. Then I must pull out the food particle - usually a seed or kernel. Very frustrating as I do scrap garbage off before running the cycle. Would I buy another Bosch? Nope!

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher Fails to turn on

It sound as a control board problem. you may be able to get it tested, and if faulty, get a re-worked (repaired one) much cheaper than a new one. Good luck!

We've had a similar problem. A banshee screaming noise that's makes the skin crawl. Since our machine is well out of warranty I took the insides apart and found only a few cherry pits. (Lesson learned, always scrape your dishes before loading.) We covered out ears for a few minutes and the bad, bad noise went away. But the noise came back, it didn't stay away.. So here's what I found with more tinkering.

1. Problem: Small hard things can get lodged in the food mill/grinder assembly at the bottom of the dishwasher tub. It's there to cut up the big chus of organic matter I presume.Today I found a thin piece of plastic about an 1" long that got caught and was resisting being ground(even though we know resistance is futile) by the grinder thing. Anyway, I took the offending piece out, put it back together and the machine is working fine. I have a hunch that the first instance may have been one of those stray cherry pits that broke up enough to get caught.

2. Solution: take apart inside assemblies to get down to the "foodmill" like thingie and see if there's something hard organic or unorganic causing the noise. Discard. Put back together and hope that solves it. (It did for our machine)

3. What's needed? Good knees or a decent knee pad and a few simple tools as follows:
A. 1- medium flat blade screwdriver
B. 2- TORX screwdrivers, # T-15 and T-20, or equivalent bits for a portable electric drill/screwdriver.
C. Small pair of regular pliers or simialr tool.
D. Muttering under your breath like Fred Flintstone, or not.

4. Process:
Take out the water jet assembly. It is held by a clip at the back and top. Use the screwdriver to pry the tabs away from the clips, then pull the assembly out at the bottom where it connects. It's a simple slide in/out fit. The bottom whirlygig water jet is fastened with a threaded cap that can be removed with the pliers. (BTW, this can get clogged with gunk. while you have it of check for gunk. Then, keeping track, remove the remaining hardware with the TORX #T-20 screwdriver until you get to a round black piece. The black piece has to come off before you can remove the piece with the filter and grinding screen. Use the #T-15 bit for removal of the black piece. Then remove the rest 'till you see a "blade". Hopefully in that process, whatever was causing "the noise" will fall out and you can discard it. Observe how gross it is in there, shudder, and begin the process in reverse.

I do have some pictures of the process in stages if you want. E-mail me at: gpfn47atyahoo.ca (note: please use the "@" symbol to replace the "at")
Well, that's it. I hope it helps someone.
Have a Blessed New Year!

Need instruction manaul for bosch wfl 2260


Programmes appear to be taking excessively long time to complete even with the quick wash button pressed - 2 hour 15 min for 30 Cotton wash cycle. Is this right or is there a fault? 30 Easy-care seems to be taking almost as long.

Bosch maxx 2860 won't do a quick wash anymore


The timer sticks at one place.
Quite a common problem. The least common is the actual failure of the timer itself. It is much more commonly caused by the failure of the heater, water valve, pump, a broken wire or even a blockage in the pressure system or waste system.

Very annoying beep when finished programme


When the machine is on, but not running, press and hold the "pre-wash" button. After a few seconds it will begin that beep noise, keep holding it in until the beep volume goes down and finally stops completely (5-10 secs). Once the beep has stopped, release the button and voila, no more annoying beeps at the end of your cycle.

To restore the end of cycle notification (beep) do the same thing as described above, but release the button earlier while the beep is still going.
