Bosch WFMC5440UC Washer will not wash or spin

4 posts in this topic

Thanks Samurai.  I saw this one when I was looking earlier. Do you think I would follow the diagnostics procedure for the 3200 or 6400?

I got to the washer finally. The 3200 is the control panel that is closest to this one.  I was called there to replace the pump because customer lost the clean out cap to the pump and had to order a new pump as you can not get just the cap.  After installing the pump I went to run washer and it started and would not fill at all.  After trying a few more times, it would lock and then just pulse the door lock causing it to try to lock over and over again.  Then the code E: came up.  No E with a number, just E:  (E cololn).  the service manual says nothing about this.  The resistance of the door lock is low according to the service manual: about 65 ohms, but it is locking and then throwing code.  I am thinking it is the control board.  the part number for that lock is 644307.  It comes up with a weird name under repairclinic.  That is not where I order parts, but they have great pics. According to the service manual, when there is no water coming in and you have water present, and the valves are good, the board is bad.

Any thoughts?

This model might have the Aquastop system consisting of a leak detection safety float located to the center/bottom of cabinet.  Might have just enough water in washer base after replacing pump to lift float.  Aquastop also has leak detecting fill hoses that have an indicator to show if there's a problem.  Red indicates bad hose and must be replaced.  Any of these conditions should result in a fault code of E:17.
