My wife's Bosch washer dryer stops on 8 min on spin.
Checked the pump filter cleaned
Replaced the motor carbons still the same fault


When it stops is it full of water?

Also does the drum turn at all during the wash or spin cycle?

The machine dose the full cycle when it gets to the spinning it stops after 8 min with no water.

Ok when it stops remove the top panel and make sure its unplugged.

From there you will see the pressure switch on the top.

Remove the thin hose going to the bottom of it and blow hard down it as ths can clear the pressure chamber in there.

Then refit the hose and retry the washer again and see how it goes from there.

Let me know how it goes from there.

Hi Daniel
Thanks for the information
I went there today pulled out the slim hose from the pressure switch blow in the hose I could here the air in the drum bubbling the water tested the machine again still the same. If I do spin program 1200rpm the spin complete to the end.
If I do any program or rins 15min program it stops as it pumps out the water
after 9 min.
Any other ideas please.

Ok if you select a wash cycle do you feel it heat the water up?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I thought that the heater probably not working I did a cotton program,heated up the water and reached the last rins and stoped.

Ok if its heating then we can rule the heater out. Plus as you say the washer will spin when a spin only is selected then we know the motor is ok as well.

So if its stopping like this and it has drained the water out then im afraid its looking like the control board is the fault as theres nothing else in there that can cause this. As we know it not the heater, motor, pump and water valves so im afraid its looking like the control board could be the issue here.
