Bosch Classixx 6 Not Doing Anything

Recommended Posts

We have a Bosch Classixx 6 and it has a problem. We can set the dial for the programme, select the spin, and press the start button ----- and nothing.

We turn it off from the machine and wall, try again, same response.

We open and close the door - same again.

After a few attempts, it finally starts, and continues without further issue.

Can anybody give me an idea of what to check before having to call out an engineer??

You'd expect if it was a simple poor connection somewhere then it would keep stopping once running, especially when shaking about on spin. Therefore it may be something more like a faulty door interlock. When the washer is turned on and a programme selected a small bi-metal strip inside the door interlock has to heat up. It only takes a second or so but when heated up it bends and makes a connection inside as well as locking the door shut.A fault on the interlock could prevent it from making a proper connection. I'd make sure the door's closing properly and there's nothing broken on the door catch (and maybe spray a bit of WD40 into the interlock from the front) but other than that it needs an engineer to fault find it. You could try replacing the interlock but there's no guarantee it is that.
