Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.

Got it thanks.

So as this is a display screen there should be a F error code comming up if theres a fault.

So as you are not getting the F code what lights are flashing?

Are you able to post a picture of the screen?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No F code. Lights on the main screen, which appear as three orange lines one under another, one orange line and two orange lines under another

If you have e mail addy I can send you a picture
Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.

Ok so the only thing thats showing up on the screen is just 3 orange lines?

Does nothing else come on the screen like the cycle you are selecting or anthing like that?

As to the picture you should be able to upload it on here using the tool bar were you type in.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, there are six orange lights. I do not have camera on this pc, but can send from my phone

hi, any ideas?
Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.

Ok if thats all you see on the screen then its going to be a faulty display control board.

As its not a fault inside the washer as if it was you will be getting F error codes plus you can clear them and it will show the time and cycles selected rather then just bars on the screen.

So as all you have is orange bars on the screena nothing else and it wont clear then it will be the display screen fautly and that will need to be replaced to cure this im afraid, Sorry its not looking like good news here.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
is that something that can be replaced by the manufacturer?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
if so, any idea of the cost?
Expert:  Daniel replied 1 year ago.

Yes Bosch themselfs can replace this quite easy for you.

The screen itself is £25. Its just there labour charge is quite expensive unless you have a warrenty on it and in that case it will be free.

But if theres no warrenty then it may be worth trying a local appliance tech near you as they will be cheaper then Bosch and there labour is arounf £60 roughly. so with the part thats about £85 roughly all in.
