Noisy Bosch washing machines
Whether you’re Bosch Logixx 8 troubleshooting, Bosch Logixx 7 troubleshooting, or experiencing Bosch Exxcel 1600 Express washing machine problems, noises all have common causes. Here’s a range for you to identify the source even if you can’t fix them yourself.
Bosch washing machine drain pump noise
When the washing machine is making loud noises as its draining this indicates that the drain pump might be obstructed or damaged. Occasionally small items or articles of clothing can get caught in the pump, and the part will need to be removed and checked for blockages. Following this, if the drain pump is still noisy it will need to be replaced.
Bosch washing machine spin cycle noise
If the washer is noisy during the spin cycle a defective tub seal and bearing are most likely to be the cause. The bearing is mounted in the middle of the outer tub and helps to keep the inner tub spinning smoothly. Replacing the tub bearing is complex and needs to be carried out by an appliance repair specialist.
The clutch can also be the culprit of loud noise during the spin cycle, or just after it finishes. The clutch assembly is the connection between the inner tub and the transmission and helps the tub to get to the proper spin speed. Wear and tear can cause the clutch to wear out and it won’t be repairable, it will have to be replaced.
Bosch washing machine rattling noise
When debris, such as coins and small objects, get caught in the inner drum of the washing machine they can make a loud rattling noise. If they fall into the filter or sump this will make the task of removing them easier, but manipulating them to get rid of any obstruction which could damage the appliance needs to be expertly done.
Bosch washing machine motor noise
If a loud noise is coming from the motor when the appliance is operating this could be a result of a defective drive belt. Over time the drive belt can start to crack as it dries out, resulting in a part of the belt actually breaking off. This is what causes the loud noise whenever the motor is running. If this is the case then the drive belt will need to be replaced.
The drive motor bearings can also wear out causing the normally quiet washer motor to be loud. The drive belt will need to be removed in order for the washer motor to be tested, so this needs to be done by a qualified repair engineer.
Bosch washing machine noise when filling
If the washing machine is noisy when filling, this points to a faulty water inlet valve. Mineral deposits can restrict the valve as they build up over time. This can result in a defective valve which will need to be replaced as repairing it isn’t a safe option.
