Question about Bosch Classixx WFO 2866 Front Load Washer
Replaces brushes but machine doing nothing. Display showing single red line for 30 secs then goes blank. Resetting control board might help. How do I do this please?
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).
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

Generally speaking, you might only expect to find carbon brushes in the motors used in some power tools. Household appliances use a different type of electric motor that does not use carbon brushes.

Make sure that all the water has drained from the washer, if it has a filter, remove and clean, it is located behind a removable plastic panel at the front of the m/c, if it still does not spin, suggest you remove motor and check the brushes for wear, this is often the reason it won't spin, but will wash o/k.
Plz rate my solution.

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...
