Bosch Washing Machine Drain Problem

Recommended Posts

I have a Bosch washing machine, Model WFO2866GB/01, about 12 years old. The problem I'm having is that the spin cycle wont work when there is water in the machine. It will spin if I drain the machine and when there is no water in it. I've checked and cleaned all the hoses and I'm certain there is no blockage. Thinking the issue must be the pump, I've replaced it, with the same result - will spin with no water, not if water is in the machine.


Additionally, of late, there has been a short delay (of up to a minute) between pressing the spin cycle button and the machine actually beginning to spin (when there is no water in it).


Any ideas or suggestions gratefully received.

Hello RB. If the washing machine pumped out the water okay when you drained it can't possibly have been the pump. If the washing machine isn't able to pump the water out that's one thing, but if it won't spin when the water has gone then it's often caused by a fault in the pressure system. It's not straightforward though, have a look at this article Faults on pressure system

If by any chance the motor seems to be half-hearted or struggling to turn or sparking when turning then it might be a motor fault instead.
