Bosch washing machine will not spin



There are a number of reasons why your Bosch washing machine will not spin, watch the video for the 3 main faults.


This video will show you how to find the fault on your Bosch washing machine that will not spin or turn the drum during the rinse cycles.

There are 3 possible causes to this.

1 Your Bosch washing machine can’t drain the water.

2 The motor is at fault, this is possibly the brushes.

3 There may be a fault on the wiring or one of the PCB’S (printed circuit boards)

If your Bosch washing machine is not turning the drum at all, then there is a chance that it could be just a problem with the motor, wiring or PCB and nothing to do with a blockage.

    Bosch express 1600.

    Changed the brushes in motor. The motor turns the drum about an inch, then agin and again, then spots. Does this a few times in a cycle. The cycle then quickly counts down. Any ideas?
