Top 20 Bosch Exxcel WFX 3267 Front Load Washer Questions & Answers

If the machine has been moved recently, ensure that it is level and not leaning forward. Pull the dispenser completely out (pull as far as it will go, then press down on the blue section in the fab cond compartment to fully remove) make sure it is clean and free or fab cond and powder build up. Following the diagram, check that part 0412 is clear (this can be done when the drawer is out by putting some water in the dispenser manually and seeing if it flows quickly. A baby bottle brush can be used to clear it, if it is blocked.769ae95c-736a-45f2-a40f-6dd121e32863.png

If the motor is not spinning, you may have a burnt out motor or faulty Motor Control Board. Else, if the motor is spinning, fix the belt from the motor to the drum.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(no promises but it's worth trying this!)
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump 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 and generic 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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters 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.

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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

This sounds like a bad main control board. Try unplugging it for 10 minutes then replug an try again. If you get the same results replace the main controller.

Disconnect the power for 10 minutes and then start the wash again. It will note water in the machine and pump it out.

The compression spring that runs the unit is broken. You should not try to run the unit at all with it in this condition because you can break the housing.
