Hello all, My four year old bosch washing machine started acting weird just two days back. During the spin session it started spinning faster than usual while making weird noises. I could see smoke coming out as i opened the washing machine door. This all started two days after my mom washed a heavy blanket ignoring my advice. I called the support guys and they said the drum needs to be changed which is expensive. I just wanted make sure if its really the drum or some other minor problem since they didn't even come and check. Manually rotating the drum, i could hear a squeaky sound caused by some friction. Please let me know if changing drum is the only solution. Thank you. Rotating the drum
Hi I'm hoping someone here can help me with my washing machine problems. I think I've put this in the wrong area but DIY repairs was greyed out. Just doing a normal wash and the RCD gets tripped and half of the house's power goes off. There was a bang from the washing machine. After emptying it and running it, inside the drum compartment there is a blue flash and RCD is tripped. After switching the power on again, a flame is seen across the back of the drum compartment. After research I removed the heating element which was covered with calcium carbonate and proceeded to clean it with heated vinegar and water. Eventually the calcium carbonate came off but the element is black where it has been burning. So I ordered a new one. New one arrives a few days later. After installing, the machine doesn't leak or trip the RCD. It completes a wash cycle but doesn't heat the water. Not sure if the heating element or the included thermistor/stat or pcb of the machine is at fault, so can't ask for a replacement. Found one with a drum problem that someone is selling. (4 hour round trip) After removing it's heating element with the thermistor and putting it in the original machine, and getting it to start washing, it is heating the water. And it's not stopping... Eventually it stopped the program. Steam was coming out of the compartment after opening the door. Also from the drawer compartment after opening it. Smoke was also leaving the drawer compartment. Right now the original thermistor is fitted to the machine with the used 2nd hand heating element. I'll add to the thread when there are updates. Sorry about the long story. I would appreciate any help that anyone can offer. Thanks for all your help.
