Bummers. Sounds like the clutch is out. (If you can hear the motor spinning but not the drum, I'd say that's it. Especially if the machine has a number of years on it.)

I once looked into having a service man come fix a clutch. He said it would be cheaper to buy and new washing machine and have the old one hauled away.

Good luck.

SOURCE: fabric conditioner drawer does not empty

The inlet to the conditioner compartment is probably blocked.
Get a thin piece of flexible wire and make a right angled bend on the end about 1" long, and poke it into all the holes u can see in the top of the dispenser compartment, particularly the ones at the front right side.
This should solve the prob.
Plz rate this solution .
Thanks

I had the same problem- machiine not spinning and a few days later not turning at all. Display would go from 11min to 1min.
I did 2 things - 1) changed the brushes on the motor- cost £7.50 .
2) whilst working under the machine disconnected pipe from drum to pump and emptied it- found 2 coins in the bellows.

SOURCE: Oily substance collecting in the door's rubber seal.

It is not oil, but a build up of grease and living bacteria, caused by doing too many low temp washes.
The only permanent solution is to replace the door seal, and at least once a month, do a hot boil wash without clothes in, but with powder or detergent in as normal.
This is called a maintenance wash, and is now recommended by all manufactuers.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Bosch Axxis washing machine: clothes small moldy after washing!


Due to mainly running low temp washes and bacteria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe) many machines will begin to smell, generally the smell is described as a damp flannel!. This can be transferred to the wash load if like myself you tend to put a load on before going to work and then removing when you get home. (The washing is clean but smells disgusting!!!)
Run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) If you buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time you need to do this, run the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out.
My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I do mainly 30 and 40 degree washes with and occasional 60.
I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months.
Hope this helps. Roni.
(ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

Ive just brought a re-conditioned bosch classixx washing machine,


boil wash the machine with old towels and powder, 90 degree wash will bring out the bleach in the powder and the old towels will throw the bleach around the tub removing the bacteria that has grown in the tub, the bacteria comes from the washing powder to eat the dirt in clothes and sometimes gets left in the tub and pipes (most people only wash at 40 degrees the bleach wont come out the powder until at least 60 degrees hence the build up and smell). you may have to do this twice to get it smelling good, remove the drawer also and clean off any bacteria with a cloth and spray bleach.

Washing comes out smelling horrible! Any ideas?


It is not the washer that is causing the prob, more likely to be coming from waste pipe, and or sink if the pipe is connected to the sink waste pipe.
Check and clean filter in washer if it has one, and remove waste pipe from washer and check outlet is not partially clogged up with sediment and other substances.
If pipe goes into sink waste, then pour a sink pipe cleaning fluid of some description down sink waste.
Also make sure you are not doing too many low temp wshes, as this can cause a prob as well
Do a boil wash at least once a month without clothes in but with powder in.
This is called a maintenance wash, and helps keep the inside of washer clean, and free from smells.

Clothes Smell Musty and Damp


It sounds like a build up of washing residue. Clean inside the door seal and do a very hot wash with a bit of washing powder and no clothes. Repeat this once a week until smell has gone.
