More often than not, the fault sign displayed in a washing machine relates to the breakdown of one of the elements. This is a problem that you can try fixing yourself before calling out for a specialist. You can solve it by replacing the faulty component of the apparatus. The process is simple, and this article will take you through.
At times, the error may not be displayed due to a breakdown of some equipment in a Bosch washing appliance. Nevertheless, the faultiness and error code emerge as a particular mode or a service test. This appearance of the error code is enhanced by a combination of the machine control buttons. However, an ordinary owner will not get the failure code.
Once an error is displayed, the first question to be raised relates to electricity. You should inspect if the issue is electrical in origin. This fault might be with a programmer or other elements, including a heating component or a drain pump. Besides, the breakdown may have hydraulic defects such as water leaks.
To examine the complete set of the apparatus functions, you can start the electronic washing appliance in a self-test or service test mode. Though the method is inaccessible to the user, it can be started by pressing a combination of keys subject to the appliance model.
