20 Most Recent Bosch Nexxt 100 Series WFMC1001UC Front Load Washer Questions & Answers

"E3" on a Bosch Maxx means the door is not closed properly. Either there something preventing it from closing properly (blockage) or there is a fault with the locking mechanism.

Yes. Child lock active. Hold start button 10 seconds. Then it will deactivate. If this is not the case, door lock fault or main board fault.

Does the problem occur on both hot and cold washes. If not then check the inlet solenoid . If yes than check the board.

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description "bosch nexxt 100 will not drain and spin", the pump is likely blocked, or faulty, but less likely. This typically an issue associated with just the filter in the pump being obstructed.
The best way to determine if it`s just clogged is to check it of course, so... The filter is located in the front near the bottom, follow below for a complete ยป"how to".

**Unplug the washer or turn off your breaker before servicing the washer...safety first**

To check and clean the pump on your washer, If you direct your attention to the bottom right side of your Bosch you'll see a small round cover like so...

With the aid of a small screw driver, knitting needle, or anything small enough to fit in the small hole in this cover...


It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force.

Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free, the edges are extremely sharp so be careful.

Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a green or red ring attached to a metal clip on the pump, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first if present, is usually a good plan )

There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out. There is potential for a lot of water...even if the washer looks empty.


Now pull out the trap/filter and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap.



That is how you gain access to and clear the filter on your Bosch washer.

Re-install the filter and run a test with some towels or something to check it`s performance and to insure the filter is tight with no leaks before putting the cover back in place.

If this answered your question, awesome. If not let me know and I`ll try and help further.

Hope you found this helpful. If so please take a moment to write a short testimony and leave a rating.

Thank you for choosing FixYa, good luck.

there is a possibility that the water censor tube is blocked and wont let the program advance to the next stage, unplug the machine take the water supply off pull out the machine remove the back cover and you will find a small pipe about 5mm across going upward towards the top of the machine, take it off and blow gently into it you should hear a faint click and one when you release if that is the case then go back to the place where you took it from and unblock the small metal pipe with a pipe cleaner or similar item this usually will cure your problem sometimes the washing powder or fluid dose nt clear away properly leaving the hole blocked preventing the control board from activating the wash cycle here's hoping eric

Just going on these symptoms, you may need a new control/timer. Inside the control /timer are electrical contacts, and when your machine gets to that part of the cycle, the contacts are not closing to allow the cycle to complete. If you have circuit board, you will perhaps need a new one of those. If you do not, probably a control/timer assembly. If you type "SeasPartsDIrect" into you computer's search engine, and then type your complete model number into the blank when you are asked for it, you may look at the schematic and see whether you have a control / timer or a circuit board. God bless your efforts.

Many things stop front load washers from spinning. Such as, it didn't drain all the water, the door is not locking, it is unbalanced, the pressure switch does not operate or there is a hole in the pressure switch tube. The drain pump has a foreign object stuck in the impeller. Just a few to check

You have to make sure that the spring part is towards the bottom of the front. If you look closely at the washer at the bottom you will see a groove. That groove is where that spring will need to end up otherwise the whole thing will keep poping off.how I install is I use a 90 degree pick tool. I work the edge of the seal with the metal ring and making sure it lines up with the groove. once there is tension on the spring I streatch it with the 90 degree pick tool and continue to work the rest of the gasket around. Once you get that completed I push down on the spring to make sure that it is in there. If it is not it takes one door opening to make it fall all apart and you have to start over.
