Frequent faults

Most often, the owners of the brand Bosch washing machine requesting service for the following reasons:

  • faulty temperature sensor or heating element, so that the machine has ceased to heat the water.
  • drain pump is clogged or broken.This is one of the most common failures of machines Bosch.
  • The drum hit a foreign object, worn bearings or fixing eased the shock absorber.All these reasons appear strong vibrations and loud noises from the machine during washing.
  • Broke the engine or control unit, causing the unit does not turn on or the drum stops rotating.
  • tachosensor breaking occurred, resulting in the laundry is pressed.

To replace the pump in the washing machine with vertical loading and replacement of bearings in the washing machine with front loading of the brand Bosch Vladimir Khatuntsev shot a video in which all the work you can do yourself.

Tips and prevention of damage

  • to clean the machine only mild cleaning solutions should be used outside, as part of which there are no solvents.Wipe the unit with a soft cloth slightly damp.Keep the washer significant amounts of water.
  • The drum cleaning is unacceptable to use steel mesh or products containing chlorine.
  • Regularly clean the cell, which are loaded detergents.To do this, remove the cuvette, rinse it under running water using a brush, then wipe dry and insert the tank into place.
  • To prevent damage it is important to regularly clean the washing machine components such as a drain pump, the drain hose and the hose filter through which water flows into the machine.Actions to clean those parts of the machine described in the instructions to the machine.

repair washing machines Experts advise to carry out prevention of breakdowns, performing simple actions shown in the Ukrainian program "All bude good."
