Question about Bosch Classixx WFL 2066 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Hi I've got a bosch wfl1660 au. As soon as it fills up with water the machine can no longer turn. When you take the drain plug out and the water leaves the machine it can turn again. I pulled it apart and discovered that there is a plastic ball in the bottom of the machine that is jamming it and not allowing it to turn. I think the ball is part of the machine but I'm not sure what its function is. Any ideas?

How do I drain the pump on a bosch classic maxx model 18061 au


You will always have some water (up to a litre) left in the pump of any washing machine once the cycle has finished. On some of the Bosch models there is a short black hose next to the filter which will allow you to drain off this excess water in to a shallow baking tray before opening the filter. I there is no hose then usually you can drain straight into a shallow tray

Bosch washer WFMC2201UC/15 has E13 error and will not fill


Hi  hartselectri,

Check the drain hoses and pump That code is for a longer than normal drain if it did not drain it would not let you open the door, You need to clean the filter. Remove the circular panel on the front right put a little screw driver in the hole and twist the access panel will pop off. Then you will need to twist the handle of the filter and pull it out you will find what is stopping the unit from draining in there very common. Also have a lot of towels handy all the water in the unit will come out when you pull the filter.

Regards
R.K.

Bosch washing machine will not fill, spin, drain..has power and water to machine...perhaps circuit board?


If it won't fill it may not spin or drain unless the water level switch is bypassed. I would check the water valve & the water level switch and tube from level switch to tub must be air tight no holes.
The water level switch must kick in to agitate. I'm not sure on Bosch but some work like this..

Bosch SHU43C installed in 2003


My Bosch SHU43C had the same exact problem. I found the below solution on this site. Perhaps you already seen it.

My SHU43C is just over 3 years old. I had a similar problem recently. First, there were a few floods. Then, the Bosch only drained non-stop. Even when I used the Cancel Drain buttons the drain pump would run without stopping. When I tried to run one of the cleaning cycles, no water entered the machine. Corrective: I removed the base plate, and saw that the red plastic floatation device was in the up position. Using a flashlight and a wooden spoon, I lightly toggled the red float stem down. I pushed regular clean cycle and kept toggling with the red float stem until the rinse water started to enter the machine (turning the red stem seems to also actuate a step in the program). Now the dishwasher runs normally. Voila!

Diswasher Leaked, now Won't Work


if you see a float inside of the dishwasher make sure its cleaned well.that float tells the control board when to drain and to fill with water.the symptom you descibe tells me its trying to drain,make sure the float moves freely.if you dont have a float you will see a metal probe clean that up as well.try this and if it doesnt fix the sensor may be part of the drain body and it has failed(leaking).
