Hello,
People on here seem to know what they are talking about so thought I would give it ago.

I have just inherited a Bosch Classixx 1200 Express washing machine. I tried to use it for the first time last night. I noticed that the machine was not spinning and it didn't drain at all so now I have a drum full of dirty water and a load of bed clothes that are sopping wet.

Does anyone know what I can do to resolve this. On a bit of a budget.

Cheers! icon_biggrin.gif

You would be better with this problem in 'appliances' rather than 'plumbing/central heating'

Check the filter/pump for a blockage. Not sure if the Classixx has a drainage tube at the bottom on the front of the machine to drain the water and then check the filter.

You need to identify the water level switch and will probably find that the tube going towards the bottom of the machine has become blocked.

You can often unblock it just from the top using something like a brake cable from a bicycle.

But after disconnecting it the pressure will have been lost to the switch. To get the machine to pump out you will need to get another bit of tube and connect that to the pressure switch and blow gently into it to simulate a full drum!

Trouble with that is that you may have to be blowing for quite a while until the machine has got to the point that it will drain. Selecting spin will probably help but some machines incorporate a further rinse cycle before spinning.

PS You may find that, contrary to your wishes, a mad mod will still move your post back to the appliances!
