Question about Bosch Axxis+ WFR 2460 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My Bosch Maxx (probably about 7 yrs old) was working perfectly till I opened the filter compartment (bottom right) to check it wasn't blocked. It wasn't. Put it back. Next time used machine there was a really loud noise while pumping water out and spinning. I opened filter again at end of wash to see if I hadn't replaced properly and could feel some wire like an uncoiled spring in outlet. Also the machine wasn't on the level having been pulled out for something else and not been put back properly. I pushed it back and have just tried it again - this time water pouring straight out of filter compartment at bottom, bypassing the drum. Can you help?

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.

My dryer Bosch maxx 7 doesn't work


That is a bad motor. It is overheating and the overload is shutting it down. Check to see if there is lint buildup on the motor. If not, you will need a new motor.

My bosch maxx stops mid cycle and the spiral icon that represents spin starts flashing. Its seems that it can not drain or spin yet the drum rotates when washing. Now i have washing stuck and i can not...


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. Without knowing the model I can't be certain, but I would suggest that the empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.
You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model, there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.

In the event that this doesn't work and you just want to get your washing out, you will find that turning the machine off at the wall for 20 minutes will reset it and allow you to open the door (With the power still off). IF THERE IS WATER ABOVE THE LEVEL OF THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR, then pull the machine out and (With some help, because it's heavy!) Tip the machine backwards at about a 45 degree angle, so that the water line falls below the door before you open it.

If the above doesn

Error code F18 for Bosch Maxx 7 Silence washing machine


F-18 means the pump is blocked.
First checkthe filter for coins or other junks. Make sure the drain hose isn't blocked, restricted or kinked. Make sure there's no obstruction in the drain standpipe or U-bend.

If this doesn't work, might as well change the drain pump assembly. http://www.espares.co.uk/parts?k=pump

Hope it helps. ;)

My Bosch Maxx 2000 WFO 2060 is leaking from the bottom. Could it be that a filter somewhere needs to be cleaned? If so where is the filter located?


The filter is usually located at the bottom right front of washer, sometimes behind a removeable cover, or a drop down flap.If you can locate it, then unscrew it anti-clockwise to remove and clean it.
There is also a possibility that there could be a hole or tear in the door seal so check the seal as well.
Hope this is of some help to you .

I have a Bosch Maxx condenser tumble dryer that wont work.


Have you taken the condenser itself out from the bottom of the machine? Remove the condenser from the bottom door and rotate the clamp tags which secure it in. Slide condenser out (aluminium mutli-finned box assembly) and carefully take it outside. Use a garden hose with lots of water pressure to spray each vent passage carefully to clear lint and dust away. Passages must be cleared in both directions, long ways and cross ways. Cross ways is the problem area and once you finish clearing the air ways you should see daylight through the condenser easily. Reassemble and always clear lint filter in the door /drum area.
Good luck.

Bosch Maxx will not drain or spin. Cannot remove the filter cap located at front bottom right hand side to see if any blockage. Grrr....


Assuming you have tried to turn it anti-clockwise to remove filter, then something is probably stuck in filter, try pushing and pulling alternatively, and unscrewing at same time, if this does not work, then you are going to have to remove the complete pump with filter, and take it apart.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
