Sounds like have inadvertently activated the child lock. To deselect you need to press and hold the start button for approx 5 secs or until the key light goes out. Hope this helps, please let me know if this works or if you need further assistance.l

Our bosh Maxx 7 varioperfect washing machine buttons are not working Amd showing f:21 error

F21 error on this model of Bosch washing machine pertains to a motor or a control board fault. This can be reset and to reset it turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position (12 o'clock), turn the knob to the 6 o'clock and then press and hold the spin button, then while holding that button turn the knob to 7 o'clock position, continue holding spin button for 15 seconds and then turn the knob to off. After a minute turn it back on, if the error code is still there then it means that the motor or brushes in the motor should be replaced, though it is always better to replace the motor assembly completely.

Bosch maxx 7 varioperfect

On the bottom front there is a panel, that panel is the 'sump' area. Make sure that is cleaned out so that all water can eject during rinse cycle.

Hello.. i have a bosch maxx 7 laundry machine... and is showing up the key symbol in the screen... and the machine is not working.. just the light in the screen is on


The key symbol means the unit is locked. It should be there in the manual. Also try unplugging the machine for 1 minute .It will reset the washing machine.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Very annoying beep when finished programme

When the machine is on, but not running, press and hold the "pre-wash" button. After a few seconds it will begin that beep noise, keep holding it in until the beep volume goes down and finally stops completely (5-10 secs). Once the beep has stopped, release the button and voila, no more annoying beeps at the end of your cycle.

To restore the end of cycle notification (beep) do the same thing as described above, but release the button earlier while the beep is still going.
