I have a bosch classixx 1200 washing machine with error code

Customer Question

I have a bosch classixx 1200 washing machine with error code f21. I cannot reset as there are no flashing red lights on any of the sensor buttons. I understand this is a motor error, but can I fix or do I need an engineer out?

F21 is indeed a motor issue, but can be caused by worn motor brushes or a defective motor..

You can try fitting new brushes to the motor and then if it does still not work after a reset, you will need to replace the motor

Hello again Jennifer, I am awaiting a response from you...

How whould you like to proceed with sorting your appliance problem?..

Would you like me to talk you through changing the motor brushes, or would you like me to suggest contact details of an appliance engineer local to you?
