WFMC3200UC Broken Plastic Piece

After running a comforter through, I found it was dripping wet. I ran it through another spin and checked again. This time it was still wet, all ripped up, and there was a broken piece of plastic inside the washer with it. I found where the part broke, but don't know what it does, what it's called, if I need it, or how to order a new one. Please help!!! :)

    Same problem - a plastic piece has broken off of our nexxt 500 washer. It came from the top of the washer opening, just behind the door seal. Unfortunately the 'exploded view' link here does not work.

    I have the exact same issue. They gray plastic triangular 'funnel' broke off of the inner lip of the washer. Don't know if it is safe to run without it or not.

This is the Laundry defelector. It keeps laundry from getting stuck in the gasket area. If it is broken/extremely worn it needs replaced.

Here is a link which shows the exploded diagram for your washer - perhaps you can identify the part; https://portal.bsh-partner.com/portal(bD1kZSZjPTAwOQ==)/PORTALFRAME.HTM and here is the parts list; https://portal.bsh-partner.com/portal(bD1kZSZjPTAwOQ==)/PORTALFRAME.HTM at the top you can order parts direct from bosch. Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; http://www.bshextranet.com/files/techtoolbox/WFMC3200uc.pdf If you have no luck with this then; Best thing you can do is to take a picture of the part and where you think it came from, and either post it again here or e-mail it to your nearest bosch dealer (page 26 of the manual has a phone number). Hope this helps :) ps - if you do contact them, please tell Bosch how good the access to their product literature is - if all manufacturers did this our landfill sites would be half as full - they deserve some praise :)

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washer will not spin...


I would say you have a burnt out clutch. did you over load it with a quilt or comforter?

Time to consider a new washing machine, unless its under warranty I would recommend replacing the washer vs. fixing it.

Whirlpool doesnt build them like they use to!

Too much soap???


One way or another - you're going to have to get that comforter into a spin cycle to get the water out of it. Otherwise it won't dry out until June. If there's excess soap when the cycle finishes, run another full wash without soap. If the washer won't drain properly with the comforter inside, you have another problem altogether.
