It could be that the basket is loose. If you hear a loud noise like metal to metal you have a loose bearing causing the basket to shake and the basket edge touching the plastic tub and shred it you see plastic pieces on clothing

SOURCE: Clothes were still very wet when cycle completed

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.

SOURCE: Bosch NEXXT 500 SERIES washer Makes knocking sound while spinning

during transport there are fittings installed to prevent damage to the machine. The shaft may have got bent but before panic sets in try to check 1. that there is a gap between the mahine and units
2. that the unit is leveled.

SOURCE: Bosch Nexxt 500 Plus Elect Dryer Error E01

Absolutely those dryer sheets are the root of all evil....I would also recommend a good vent brush to clean your dryer vent.
Follow these steps, it worked for me:
1. use a shop vacuum to clean out the dry vent or a vent brush.
2. Clean your lint filter with windex, hot water and and soft bristle brush.
If this doesnt work try running the until disconnected from the vent for a cycle to isolate the vent as your issue.

Cheers!

SOURCE: Error code E:01

Hi and welcome to Fixya, The E01 error for your bosch indicates a door lock problem has been detected at the control board. Insure the door is closed tight, turn your breaker off or unplug the washer for a couple of minutes and retry. Let me know what happens, ultimately it may be a faulty lock assembly, a loose wire harness etc. but we'll cross that bridge when we get there...if necessary. I'll watch for you to respond with the result's. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

I have a Bosch NEXXT 500 plus and it will not spin and drain clothes properly, it leaves them wet. What can I do? It seems several others have this same problem.

have you checked the filter and does the machine spin but not at full power they will not opperate propperly if you have a blockage alot of machines suffer problems like this because the waste water will not discharge due to blockages in the pump/ filter/sump hose, and if the waste pipe is connected to the sink waste they will block there try these few things first make sure all your water is discharging if you still have the same problem let me know.

Washer will not do Final spin. the time stays on one minent for about 8 mins with no final spin

If the clothes are extracted of water it very well mean your timer needs adjusted slightly, If not, timer needs replaced. Remember, not 100% of your rinse water will be extracted so don't expect it to be hand touch dry when you remove load.But it should not be dripping wet or soaked either

Is there any detergent I should avoid using in my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series washer?

Any clothes-washer HE (low suds) soap will do. Just be aware that you only need a tablespoon of the soap, not the 3/4 cup that comes in the box!

Spin=wet drippy clothes

if it shakes so hard it makes me wonder if one of the dampners is lose. If yo haven't moved it and it normally worked ok than that will be the thing. It leaves it wet because the machine cant get to the high rpm's because of imbalance

Clothes too wet upon cycle completion...

Try reducing the amount of low sudsing detergent you are using. This can make the load too heavy and won't spin out. Remember suds have 3 parts, air, detergent, and water. The drain pump is designed for water, so if you see suds during the wash, it will be worst on warm and hot, then there is too much detergent, or is not low sudsing. I know Bosch reccommends HE, however HE liquids normally are not low sudsing, just High Engery. Also the Permanent Press cycles are always a lower spin speed. Hope this helps
