Bosch washer won't spin with wet clothes

I am not sure if Bosch has a "load sensing" sensor, but I would start there else you may have a motor issue, or bad capacitor on your motor.

Why does my boot keep tearing, original lasted years, all replacements are months.

had this once before A wire from an under wire bra found its way in-between the inner and outer drum every now and again it would find its way to the seal and tear it then one day the drum started making a loud grinding sound on further investigation we found the wire that fixed both problems

My washer completes the cycle just fine but after I've removed the clothes, the tub slowly fills with water. This happens even when the machine is off. Is it a valve or drain problem?

well if theres more water in it now then when you took clothes out , id fail to se how its a drain issue , no id lean towards the inlet solenoid valve have a small bit of debris keeping it from closing all the way , this will probably need replacing

Error code E:01

Hi and welcome to Fixya, The E01 error for your bosch indicates a door lock problem has been detected at the control board. Insure the door is closed tight, turn your breaker off or unplug the washer for a couple of minutes and retry. Let me know what happens, ultimately it may be a faulty lock assembly, a loose wire harness etc. but we'll cross that bridge when we get there...if necessary. I'll watch for you to respond with the result's. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

Door will not open bosch nexxt 500 series

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck.

The door typically locks as a result of the unit failing to drain, so....

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner) macmarkus_26.jpg
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.


3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. 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 very sharp so be careful).

4. 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 or with the aid of pliers.


**NOTE - you should also see a ring attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first if present is usually a good plan


Once the door is open and you've removed the items you wanted. Unplug the washer for 20minutes or so and then plug it in again, to see if the control "resets".

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "FixYa" and good luck.

All wash cycles keep prematurely stopping. I am not getting any error codes.

The programmer itself might be at fault No cycles complete .... but does the machine stop at the same part of each cycle, i.e. the rinse or the spin. If it does you can ascribe the fault to a particular component. If it is stopping at different points it would probably be the programmer. A technician should be able to definitively diagnose the fault
