Bosch washing machine extending cycle at spin time

Recommended Posts

Hi bit of a strange one I’ve noticed the washing machine (Bosch WAQ22461GB) adds 45 minutes to the cycle normally right at the end at around spin time (it occasionally happens at other times).  The only solution is to stop that cycle and do a spin only cycle which works as expected.
From comments on here I can see a heat element issue, the door gets nice and warm at 90 but does not really change temp at 30, so is this a heating issue or a dreaded PCB issue?

I wouldn't be surprised if the door doesn't get warm at 30 degrees which isn't very hot at all. A heating element will normally either work or not, it's unusual for it to work sometimes and not others. You would have to test the element for connection faults and for continuity to be able to eliminate it. This article should be of interest Washing machine not heating up water
