SOURCE: UL Code
Solved the unbalanced problem - open the top of the machine (press in with a flat putty knife about 3" in on the front on each side while lifting up as there are 2- 1" wide catches). Once both sides are unlatched, raise the lid then slightly lift the rear of the lid so that it fits into the curved part at the top of the hinges then open all the way - tape the lid to the top so it doesn't flap about and scotch the lid to keep it from falling back down on you. Now, look around - see all that rust? The rust has fallen into and gotten underneath one or more of the 4 white plastic suspension "ball joints" which have probably totally dried out by now from their factory grease because of the water, bleach, and rust particles. Having someone help you, simply lift up on one of the 4 corner suspension rods - gravity and weight is all that holds them down. The white ball will lift out of the socket and still be attached to the rod. Clean out the rust, lightly sand the "socket" with emery cloth, then slop in a fingerful of grease. I used automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it. Also scrub off all embedded rust on the white plastic ball. Lower that corner back into the newly cleaned and greased socket and repeat for the other 3 corners. Now when you move the tub around notice how the balls pivot in their sockets like they are supposed to. When they were dry and rusty they wouldn't move enough to allow the tub to twist like it should so it slammed around. Now, shake your head in disgust that after only 2 years there is so much rust that you wonder if it will make it another year before falling apart, close the lid, and try another load. That totally solved my off-balance problem where even a single handkerchief would give the UL error. It is still a finicky machine, but at least once again works like it did when new.

The load was probably unbalanced enough to trip the safety and shut the machine down. Have you tried running it again empty since then?

maybe your clutch is slipping not getting full spin speed,,,,or could be a problem with your basket drive assy

Testimonial: "thought it might be something simple like changing out a switch. Looks like we need a tech house call. Thanks"
SOURCE: drum is not moving
Hello, I have a couple of question before we can provide a diagnosis and ultimately a solution. Does it rotate in either direction for the wash cycle ? Does it spin if placed in just the spin cycle ? Would it be possible to provide a model number and maybe confirm it's a Bosch washer ? I will try and be helpful, but I'll need a little more detail. I look forward to seeing your reply. Macmarkus :)
