Bosch WFLI 2440 Front Load Washer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


Hello.


If your washer is indeed a WFL2066, than the not spinning is directly relatedto the unit not draining.

These machines by design cannot spin if the drain is inadequate.

Here is the first step in resolving the problem, you need to access the drainpump/filter to clean it.

To reach the filter and clean it...

**Unplug the washer from the dryer or wall, or turn off the 30amp breakerat the home service panel...safety first**

1) Open the small square plastic door at the right bottom of thewasher.

2) Via the small hose drain any access water from the pump...this is where awet/dry shop-vac comes in handy, or a shallow pan with a few towels works a swell.

3) Then turn the pump insert/button trap counter clock-wise and pull out.Clean the trap out thoroughly running it under hot water and mild soap or your washer detergent and inspect inside the pump for any other foreign objects/obstructions.

4) Re-install the lint trap insuring it is good and snug/tight. Before closing up the small access door, run a short rinse spin cycle to check frleaks.

Let me know how you make out, or if you require further assistance.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
'....water in drum won't drain'

I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.

Remove the motor and check the brushes, if they are less than 3 or 4mm long, replace them.

your soap drawer is most likely to be blocked , the only true way of clearing the blockage is to take the soap dispenser completely out . you will see that all the jets will be blocked ,you can do this before taking it all apart by taking the drawer out band looking up, if it looks clean ie; no black gunge then it may be a water valve problem, as the cold fill side has 2 internal valves both have come on together to clear the conditioner compartment.

Remove the dispenser from the m/c, and thoroughly strip and clean every part. fill the conditioner compartment with water to the top, and the water should syphon away to leave it empty.
Get a piece of thin stiff wire , make a hook on the end, and poke it into all the holes you can see in the top of the conditioner compartment, this will unblock any that are clogged up.
Should solve your problem
Plz leave feedback.

FROM FIXYA

The e2 error is a generic error that the machine shows if it's been overloaded or if the load becomes unbalanced during a wash cycle.


to fix you must do a master reset of the washing machine.

1. Close the door and make sure the dial is pointing to the "OFF" function
2. Hold the Start/Pause button and turn the dial anti clockwise (to the left) to the "express 15 min" program at the same time.
3. Hold the Start/Pause button for a minute (the e2 message is meant to start flashing after a minute of holding the button down however with my washing machine this didn't happen)
4. Release the button and turn the dial back to the "Off" function.
5. Select any program and the message should not be appearing.

Hi, I know it's kind of a silly thing but when loading the machine make sure nothing is jammed against the dispenser preventing it from opening. I've run into that a few times and people looked at me like I had two heads but when I showed up to look at the machine,it was loaded like thanksgiving dinner was just over. If that is not the issue then it's either the dispenser itself that is broken or it's not getting power from the board. Either problem will require getting into the door of the machine and running a test program. I would call a local appliance repair company as these tests require the machine to be powered up and specific tools. Hope that helps.

I have a Bosch 300 Series on a pedestal. Pull the drawer out completely and reach to the back of the slides, you will feel the plastic release. The left one presses up (pull the drawer a little While you press the tab up), the right one presses down (pull the drawer a little while you press that tab down). Now you can simply pull the drawer all the way out.
