Question about Bosch Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Classixx 1000 machine which is approximately 7 yrs old. It has developed a fault by which the wash cycles are of random lengths. It can be anything from 3 hours to 20 mins before it moves on to rinse, and now has stopped heating the water so all washing is done in cold water! Please help me!!!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It is possible that the heater has been taking longer (and longer) than it should to heat the water to the correct temperature. This could be that the element is coated in calcium. I suggest you run the contents of a couple of sachets of proprietary limescale removing powder/fluid through it. The most efficient way is to put the contents in an empty washer and pour a kettle of hot water into the drum then leave overnight. In the morning run just a spin; the water mix will then go through the drain filter and drain motor impeller blades, doing absolutely NO harm whatsoever! Worth a try before having to call an engineer! In fact worth a couple of tries ;-0)
Good luck,
John C

Bosch classixx 1000 express wont spin


Check the motor housing for an overload button, usually on the back and coloured black or red. Give it a push and if it clicks then the motor might have just been a bit stressed out and popped it.

Next two things are more serious unfortunately. The relay on the circuit board might have burnt contacts from switching the motor over the machines life, or, one of the motors windings has developed a fault. (these are both pretty rare though).

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin


Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x
