Washine Machine ( Bosch Vario Perfect) slow through programmes.

Hi. Has anyone had problems with their Bosch washing machine continually being slower through the programmes.? We have double checked the water supply and the machine fills ok, and no kinks in any hoses. Have checked the outlet and it drains ok when it gets there. Also checked and cleaned the filter. The machine seems to hesitate for periods of 30 secs to a minute during the wash, the wash light flashes and you can hear a gurgling within while it hesitates. It does this even with half a load and minimum detergent, usually adding 15 mins to a wash cycle and missing out the spin but still draining. Any ideas.? Thanks.

Gurgling may suggest problems with switch serving the pump, when my machine developed a fault at the pump the machine by default tops up the water .Seemed strange to me but WM engineer said many do this .

There are too many variables for the timer to be completely accurate, temp. of incoming water, type of load, etc. I would guess the gurgling noise is either the recycling pump operating or the drain pump in the rinse or spin cycle. Th only cycle that is usually fairly accurate is the spin cycle & only then if you have a balanced load.
