Bosch WFK2401 Drain Pump

When the drain cycle starts, he machine starts making a clicking sound - sounds like coins left in the tumber, but the sound does not ary with the tumbler speed, rather with when water is being pumped out. Other than the noise the unit works fine.

    Yes - and it was even a penny!

    I had the same problem.  After reading this I checked the drain pump housing and found a Penny too.  Alas the clicking sound is fixed but the main motor is not turning. 

    Is it as easy as changing the motor?

I have a WFL 2060 UC on the bottom right there is a small access door. Inside the door you will find a drain plug which will unscrew counter clock wise. Water will come out so I tipped up the machine and slid a 1" deep cooking pan under the corner. When I unscrewed the plug I found a penny inside.

My Bosch WFK2401 washer has stopped filling. The cycle will count down and the pump will run to drain (but nothing to drain!). I have checked the supply lines, there is water and the filter screens are...

I suspect the solenoid on the water input connection has failed, this is the unit that allows water into the machine , if you know a bit open the lid and you should see this just inside behind the cold water connection.

Splendide 2000S Vented Washer/Dryer makes a bad noise once in the rinse cycle and water will not drain

Check the drain pump. There may be a coin, hairclip , button etc stuck in the blades of the pump. If the machine cant pump out, it wont go through the cycle.

Started making loud "clicking" noise

Blocked pump, open flap bottom right, drain off excess water manually and remove pump filter. Make sure you get right down and have a look in at the impellor and give it a turn to make sure its free to rotate. You'll probably find a coin, button etc that is catching the pump impellor. When you start a cycle the pump engages for a few seconds and then the w/m takes in water, so if something is stopping the impellor rotating the w/m will not start.
Best of luck

Bosch dishwasher timer freezing

There is a recall on the control board of many of these models, butyour problem is likely not related. It sounds like a plugged drain system or a possible bad drain pump. That's why you are hearing the pump running constantly. I have written a guide to help. It is here. Thanks!

My bosch wfk2401 front loader is stuck on spin

There is a door bottom right of the system which has a screw out (by hand) plug.
Remove this and ensure there are no foreign objects such as coins, bobby pins etc stuck.

I have found this to be a problem with the Bosch systems and cost me $150 the first time.

Ensure you have some towels as when you open the plug, water will escape
