Here are the symptoms: - Wash cycle seems ok but can not be sure. When complete the rinse commences but am unaware what happens next. This is what I have done Started washing clothes and waited for cycle to end(!) or problems start. Switched off and set program knob to rinse. At this point I select spin and after a while the water starts to empty. When a sufficient amount has emptied I stop the spin (no spinning has began), and set the knob to wash again. This now allows clean water to rinse the clothes and when I think it has rinsed enough I set the knob to off then spin again until all the water has emptied. When the drum is empty the spin cycle should continue but does not. What happens is there is a clunking sound and the activity light goes out again, when it comes back on the machine tries to start the spin again and the sequence is repeated.

Hello David,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description you likely have a clogged drain pump/filter.

Here`s how to check since that would be the first logical place to start.

1) **Turn off the power or unplug the cord from the dryer or wall...ehichever applies to your set-up...safety first**

2) Water removal...remove toe panel. There you will find a small hose with a plug in the end for draining the pump.

3) Now bleed pump drain...A shallow pan is handy for this step.

3) remove pump filter, but be careful if you don't have a shop-vac or a shallow pan and towels you may get wet...

*Once you`ve reached this point you may have trouble removing the filter if it is really plugged up with debris. You might have to wiggle it back and forth as you twist and pull.

4) When you get the filter out, visually inspect inside the pump thoroughly with a flashlight and clean it out really well. It won`t take much to prevent these from draining. i.e. a penny, hair pin, buttons etc.

Let me know if you found anything in the pump and how you make out after that.

If you removed any obstruction, simply reassemble the unit making sure the filter is screwed in tight, run a quick rinse cycle to test for leaks before putting the toe panel back on and you should be good to go...save for any leaks.

There are other possible factors that can prevent the unit from draining or spinning out items properly, but we`ll cross that bridge when and if we get there.

Thank you for choosing FixYa, keep me posted on your situation.

macmarkus :)

My Bosch maxx 6 do not wash the clothes


Please be more specific with your problem. Does it even start? Does it have power? Does it fill with water? Does it spin or agitate. Help me isolate the problem.

Bosch maxx Classic. 7 yo. Washing cycles are not finishing. Timer is showing 1 but does not turn off. Clothes are still quite wet. Have cleaned filter. Anything else I can do?


Looks like the solenoid that controls the drain motor is malfunctioning.
Whenever this happens, the water does not get drained fully and remains in the chamber thus keeping the clothes still wet.
Speak to your local service representative and get the part replaced.

I have a Bosch Maxx 1000 Washing machine and it seems to be stopping just before spin dry and flashing end. Door won't open so I need to turn to spin or drain to complete cycle. Today the spin cycle...


this is because the water can't evacuate . check the pump trap filter and make sure there are no blockages. you will probably find water still i the machine when this happens. There might be a blockage up in the hose pipe before the pump. Good luck

Clothes too wet upon cycle completion...


Try reducing the amount of low sudsing detergent you are using. This can make the load too heavy and won't spin out. Remember suds have 3 parts, air, detergent, and water. The drain pump is designed for water, so if you see suds during the wash, it will be worst on warm and hot, then there is too much detergent, or is not low sudsing. I know Bosch reccommends HE, however HE liquids normally are not low sudsing, just High Engery. Also the Permanent Press cycles are always a lower spin speed. Hope this helps
