Question about Bosch Axxis+ WFR 2460 Front Load Washer
My 5 year old Bosch WFR2460 are suddenly acting up. When I start a wash (it does not matter which wash program) the door relay engages and about 5-8 seconds goes by before the display reads "Standard time xx:xx". All the sub programs do work: Spin, Drain and soak.
It appears that is has to do with the CPU or some of the sensor inputs but since there are no error messages I do not know where to start.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

after ensuring the sump hose and transfer hoses are clear clean out the pressure system to ensure the water wash level is not more than usual, secondly check whether the waste hose is not back filling from a sink u bend and also check the sink u bend for blockages (usually fat).
if all ok start to check the wiring connections from pump to pcb board, if these are ok then there may be a fault on the board. (pumping problems are usually easily solved with the above proceedure, the pcbs are rarely at fault for bosch but you may be the unlucky one !). tony

possibly the motor brushes.
take back panel off and motor is held in by bolts which undo - also disconnect electrical plug and socket.
check condition of brushes

You need to check and clean pump filter, normally located behind a removeable plastic cover at bottom front of washer right hand side.
If no filter found there remove rear panel of washer, and clean pump from rear of washer.
Please rate my solution.

The 03 error code is the drain. Disconnect the drain hoses
and check for blockages. If no blockage "time" the drain interval. If
it's more than 6 minutes it's the pump. Also make sure you're using the
type of soap so the ball check valve on the bottom of the outer drum
getting fouled with excessive suds. Also disconnect the drain hose from
house plumbing and let it free flow on it's own. This will tell you if
block is in your plumbing, and not in the machine. Assuming that your
filter is clean.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This sounds very much like the belt is broken or, at worst, the motor is malfunctioning. Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
If it turns out to be the motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed although financially very attractive. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished at the same time. It depends on how old the motor is and how much wear the commutator has had.
Hope this is your problem solved.
