Bosch Washer WAS20160UC drain problem

14 January 2014 - 03:41 PM

I have a strange problem with a Bosch Axxis washing machine model WAS20160UC.

 

The machine will work fine for a while, then stop with an F18 error.  I can't find the error in the service manual or training presentation, but I found it with a Google search.  What is happening is that when the drain pump stops pumping for about 20 seconds with water still in the tub, an F18 error occurs.  I did a manual drain, and opened up the drain pump impeller housing (there is a screw-on cap).  The impeller is clear, and the shaft turns freely.  I then put the maching on drain, and press start, and the drain solenoid clicks open, but the pump doesn't turn.  I do this a couple more times, and the impeller starts turning.  I then put everything back together, and it will run for several loads, then quits with the F18 error.  I haven't taken apart the machine to test the pump windings, but the windings on these things are reasonably heavy, and I would be supprised to have an intermittent broken winding.

 

I would have suspected a bad bearing in the pump, but the shaft turns fine.  When I turn the impeller, I can feel a magnetic pull ever 1/2 turn or so, so I suspect this pump has a magnetic rotor (Bosch uses the same arrangement in their dishwashers.

 

Anybody got a clue as to what is going on?  Is this a common problem with these machines?

 

Thanks in advance.

Bosch SHU9912UC dishwasher doesn't complete drain

04 February 2012 - 11:43 AM

I have a Bosch SHU9912UC diswasher that doesn't complete drain. Most of the water drains, but around 1/4" to 1/2" of water still remains.

Does anyone have any idea what is wrong with this and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.
