    Dear Friend water hoses are clear and water is getting in to drum OK. Also took out heater element and this is OK, so put back. Machine is running now but water is still not getting hot.

    I took the heater out and connected it to the mains and it got hot quickly. There were no holes in it or burn marks. Cant measure the amp draw

    Thank you for your help and advice. It turned out to be in the end one of the plastic spade connectors that connect to the heater element. It was broken inside. So I have soldered on new connectors and its working fine now. Thanks again.

Check the water inlet valve where the hoses connect shut water off and take the hot hose off look in the valve there is a small screen that maybe clogged if not report back and we can go in deeper

    Ok then you are getting hot water into the unit .. the heater was the next step.....but what I need to know did you test the heater or just look at it they can break internally and on the outside look fine....You will need to test the voltage at the heater if you have voltage to the heater when in the cycle you will need to check the amp draw of the heater that and let me know what you find.

    Are you getting pwr to the heater when the unit is on ??? you will need a test meter to go any deeper i can give you test points to check to see where the problem is,,,>> Do you have one??

    PS: never dry fire a heating element it will burn out with in 30 secs of pwr being applied alway test submerged

Bosch wff 1401 not emptying water therfor not able to spin the pump goes round but water does not empty if i drain the water the machine will spin

If you have not already done so, then check and clean filter located at bottom front right of washer behind drop down cover.
If it still does not empty, then it is either blocked between the pump and tge waste outlet, or the pump itself could be faulty.

Bosch continues to fill when rinsing even when the machine is off

The inlet valve is stuck open most commonly , you can check this by taking the wires off the valve and then turn everything back on , if the water is still flowing replace the inlet valve.

Bosch washing machine

With no clothes in the washer start a program. The washe level is below the door glass. the rinse level comes up 3 cm on the glass. The washer is designed to be water efficent. If you are not getting water this high, look at the pressure switch hose, maybe it is restricted and causing the pressure to be held in the washer.
