I currently have a Bosch WFF200L washing machine. It does a main wash however does not proceed to the next cycle and continues to carry on with the main wash procedure. Any advice?
Many thanks, Peter Lee

It seems that the main controller could be the culprit but this requires you to counter check and confirm the fault before you can proceed to replace. It will be best to check all the connections and reset the pins and connectors. If the cycle goes through well in many modes it is adviceable to use as much by alternating the cycles than to replace the controller if you can manage..
Check for large items of clothes being tangled if the Bosch washing machine doesn't spin. The weight could not be evenly distributed in the drum and the spin cycle will have been disabled to prevent damage to the clothes..
Load the drum with large and small clothes together and run the entire washing cycle and spin cycle again.
Add more powder and run the entire washing and spin cycle again if you haven't found tangled large items, but the spin cycle still failed. This indicates the amount of cloths was too small.
Add 1 tablespoon of fabric softener to 1 pint of water and pour it into the main detergent dispenser if there's no tangling and the load was a normal size. The cause would have been excessive suds because of too much, or the wrong kind, of detergent. Use HE (High Efficiency) detergent in Bosch washing machines.
have you tried just white vinegar as your rinse aid. Do a full cycle of your washing machine using white vinegar instead of detergent, to clean any residue from pipes, and then in the next wash try white vinegar as your rinse aid.
With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.
