Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Remove the power and follow my guidance notes on cleaning filters because that will also show you how to drain the water out and hopefully allow you to open the door- but sorry, no promises!
-------------------------------------
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Bosch washing machine starts filling with water, then does nothing, timer counts down but no movment


have a technician check it out as it may be a board problem
normally the fill level switch ,when the set water level is reached activates 2 things
it stops the water in and at the same time moves the program on to start the wash cycle
so it is either that switch or the program board

I start the wash cycle timer reads 1:02 machine runs and timer counts down to 54 mins. then resets to 1:12 mins. which inturn adds approx. 18-20 mins to wash cycle why the reset??


I had a similar problem with ours and had a repair guy come out and look at it. He suggested running a couple of heavy bleach cycles through the machine. He said that sometimes if you use too much detergent (especially if you're not using the "High Efficiency" type of detergent) detergent builds up on a sensor in the machine and causes longer than necessary wash cycles. We actually ran 2 cycles of bleach and then a couple more with no bleach or detergent and the problem cleared up.

Spin Cycle


I just replaced my second motor control board because of the same problem. Mine starts to spin but never reaches speed and stops, then it repeats. It can do this for hours. I think we are overloading the machine washing area rugs. The fuses are OK on both failed boards and nothing is burned and all caps look normal. At $150 a pop, I would rather replace some components if I knew which ones. For a quick fix, the new board worked for me.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Gets stuck on timer and wont count down


We had a similar situation with our LG washer. It was not a timer problem.
The machine was not entering the spin cycle and was just stuck in limbo. A sensor or something was not being satisfied and allowing the progression to the next cycle. Our problem had to do with the drain line; it seemed as if it was air locked?? After lowering the drain line height (to reduce the head pressure), and manually draining some water out of the drainage cap (where the strainer is located) onto the floor, the sensor became satisfied and the machine completed its cycles properly.

What told me that it was not a timer issue was the fact that on different wash settings (normal, heavy, quick cycle), the machine timer would get stuck at different countdown points (22mins, 12mins, etc.).

Ultima WF840 won't go from wash to rinse cycle


the pump is blocked, so the sensor detects that the machine has not emptied in the allocated time, so this will reset the time.... the pause is because it knows there is a probblem getting rid of water.

location: bottom right near the motor. ensure you tip the washer as far forward as you can so you can get a bucket under in order to prevent flooding.


hope this helps

It may be possible that you are using too much soap. There is a turbidity sensor that checks for soap in the water. It will keep rinsing until it thinks the soap is gone. You did not state if you are ever able to complete an entire cycle or not. If the cycle never completes, it is possibly a problem with the main circuit board. Have you allowed the machine to complete a cycle?
