Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If you haven't already tried this I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete 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 advantixx washer drier drier only runs 5 mins then switches off


The likely answer is the motor is overheating and the auto cut-off switch activates. If you wait a while it will then start up and repeat.
The answer will probably have to be a replacement motor, but a qulified engineer may find he can clean up the motor contacts and get it running - but that may cost same or more than a new motor!

Hi

The issue seems with the water not draining completely and so it is unable to work correctly. The issue can be with the either the motor that is bad or something is clogged and you will have to take the bottom front panel out to clean it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Bosch WVF 2402 Washer Drier Steam Problem


Hello All

Problem solved by clearing out the condensate container which on inspection was full of dried up fluff and dead tissues! This is not a ****that is mentioned in the manual and access to the bin is pretty tricky so I suspect there are lots of machines out there with the same problem waiting to happen.

Access was gained by taking the top of the machine off, removing the dryer motor and then scraping out the muck using a wire coathanger and a vacuum cleaner.

Many thanks
