Bosch Finishes On 0:01 And Not Fully Drained


Recommended Posts

I have a Bosch Maxx 7 WAE24362FF/34 - very similar to a UK WAE24369GB - only a few years old.

On all cycles, it finishes at 0:01 with a click-a-click-a-click noise (dunno if the clicks are normal or not - I don't think they are?).

There is no water visible in the drum BUT if the clothes are left in the drum for an hour after it finishes there is a powdery stain on the bottom items - as though they have sucked up dirty water.

From reading the forums I have tried some self-help - I have replaced the drain pump, run a program with white vinegar and run a few 90C cycles but no difference, I ran a 15 min express with the outlet pipe in a bowl at floor level but no difference (ie it drains loads of water and none visible in the drum but still finishes on 0:01).

Any ideas on what I try next ?

Thanks

  • Some washing machines can stick for hours or indefinitely without triggering an error code,some can even get stuck on the last 1 minute remaining section. This can be caused by various things such as a heater going open circuit mid-wash or faulty connections on NTCs. Even low electrical insulation readings can cause it. It’s best to get someone in if this happens

Wow. Is the machine still functioning but with the sticking on the last minute issue?

Thanks for the update. So I presume it is washing and drying the laundry okay. Very strange. If by any chance you are finding that some laundry isn't getting properly clean I would strongly suspect a possible open circuit heating element. But if everything is fine then I can fully understand why you haven't called in an engineer.

It's the same for me. Everything is fine except the stuck at the end.

When it was operating properly, at the end of the cycle it was a "clank" coming from the door opening and then the "beep" for the end of the cycle.

Now, there are 3 "clanks" at the end, like it is trying to open the door 3 times, and it gets stuck.

Good news. An engineer came to us yesterday and he said it is a known fault by Bosch. 

Their advice is to unscrew the panel behind the machine and to clean the engine with a vacuum cleaner. 

The engineer did it and now the machine is working fine. 

Hope it helps.

Cheers.

Thanks very much for the update. I presume by engine you mean the motor. It’s certainly very strange. I can’t really connect the symptoms of sticking with 1 minute at the end with fluff and dust in the motor though.

Thanks. That makes more sense if it's low insulation from carbon dust in the motor. I wouldn't normally expect to be able to clear that with a vacuum cleaner, it normally would need stripping down and cleaning out (although many motors can't be taken apart these days) or blowing out with a good flow of compressed air. Glad it's worked for you. Normally a build up of carbon dust is caused when the brushes are quite worn and ready for replacing. Hopefully the engineer checked and found them ok.
