Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer
I am very handy at working on anything but I don't have any direction to go. Thank You.
Sounds as if the rinse hold button has been set by accident.check the switches top left.if they are correct, then next query would be logic board has a problem, sometimes fixed by hair drying the board in cases of damp lack of use washer.if machine completes most cycle then I suspect rinse hold button is on or open circuit.

Hello Mamma5, It sounds like the drain pump is either seized or jammed. The drain pump has an anti jam device in it. Since you have figured out how to get into the drain pump, try turning the inpeller in the back. It will be a little hard to turn as the magnets in the motor will fight you on this. Look close in case there is anykind of thread wrapped around the inpeller. If so, then you can free the pump. If you cannot free it to run, advise the repairman what you found so he can bring a drain pump with him.
Hope this helps.

possibly the motor brushes.
take back panel off. disconnect motor. remove bolts holding motor in and take out motor. check condition of brushes

Remove plastic panel at front bottom of washer, there you will see the filter, unscrew it anti clockwise to remove and clean, replace and tighten up clockwise.
Plz rate my solution.

If you have got rid of all the water, and it still will not spin, then the odds are it is the brushes in the motor that need replacing.
Quite a common problem

Testimonial: "I will tell repairman from Sears ( coming Friday ). i'll ask him to check brushes before he pulls motor. "
Joe, Thanks for the prompt reply. OK, it sounds like one of two possible culprits, 1) the belt has broke or spun off. 2) the brushes in the motor are worn...although the initial symptom of this is typically manifest in "no spin" so I'd lean towards a broken or spun off belt. You'll need to remove the rear panel for a visual inspection to confirm or dismiss either possibilities. Let me know what you find out. If the belt is off check for possible reasons "why" ? It can be a loose drive pulley, ( the large one, not the motor pulley ) or simply an unbalanced load on the previous wash, just a heads up since you're looking around in there anyway. Of course the belt itself may be worn ( stretched ) or broke and thus at fault as well. Good luck, I'll watch your post. macmarkus :)
