The display / control units are sensitive to voltage surges and it was most likely damaged when the fuse blew.

If all the lights are flashing it is without a doubt a faulty main board. If only certain lights are flashing it is showing an error code. Tell me which lights are flashing and will point you in the right direction. Approximately will cost 100 to 140 for a board, which also has to be programmed

There is no reset as such, if the motor shorted when the motor brushes went there is a good chance that it blew the motor tracking or relay on the board. Sometime this is indicated by F20 or F21. Unfortunately this will be a new board. You could try to run a motor test as follows:
Hold in the start button while turning the dial one click to the left (30 easycare) wait until the display shows 888 or two indicators light up next to dial.
Release start and turn dial to 60 cotton (WITHOUT GOING THRO THE OFF).
Press start
This should start a motor test
slow turn one way, slow turn the other, pump on then up to full spin.
(some machines will show the rpm on the display).
If this does not work, you probably need to change the module aswell.
Best of luck

F21 is a motor or control board fault.
This also can be caused by voltage spikes or surges; to reset it...

Turn the appliance knob to the off or reset position, 12 o'clock.
Turn the knob to the 6 o'clock position.
Press and hold the spin button.
While holding it, turn the knob to the 7 o'clock position.
Continue holding the spin button for about 5 seconds.
Release the button.
Turn the knob to off.
When your turn it back on it should have cleared the error code

If the problem continues then check the motor.

n most washers the F01 error indicates an control board problem. It is like an internal program error.

A power glitch can cause the problem.

One of the things to try is to enter and run a diagnostic cycle, or unplug the machine for 30 mins.

Hi.

Here a general troubleshooting for no spin problems : If you have no spin there may be different reasons behind the problem. Before advancing to

With your model you need to add to the list problems related to motor and motor control unit. Such problems will be at the end of the troubleshooting list, right before inspecting the electronic control, and in any case are not common failures.

With this model the more common failures are concerning drain system, door lock switch and pressure switch.


Regards.

If it's over filled it won't spin.

The fault is most likely either with the water level sensor or with the filling solenoid. Both are cheap parts but note the caveat of "most likely". If you buy and fit the parts with no improvement you cannot return them, but a Bosch repair agent can try them and remove them if they're not the cause. The worst case is a failed pcb, but repairing your machine will still be cheaper than replacing it. Barring occasional faults, Bosch washing machines last longer than average.
