my name is XXXXX XXXXX i am an authorized bosch service tech and i can help you today
the f43 error is a motor or circuit board fault
How old is this machine?
ok. so it is out of warranty then. just checking. because your next step is to open the machine and check the wiring harness to and from the motor to the control board. If you haven't already tried the reset.
do you have the model with the timer dial or push button control board?
It has a push button control board
ok. so hear is what you need to do.
oh wait i am sorry you said push buttons only? no knob at all?
it also has a knob
ok. that is what i thought. here is what you need to do. and please make sure that the washer is in a standby mode before performing the next steps. standby mode is power to the machine but nothing selected on control board.
to reset the circuit board turn the knob to off (12 oclock), then down (6 oclock), press and hold spin, round to 9 oclock, wait 5 secs, release spin, knob to 12 oclock. should be reset. If it doesnt work investigate wiring\board\motor
do that and tell me what happens? if this doesnt reset your board and fix the problem then you will need to open the machine up to check and make sure there is no disconnected wires. and if no disconnected wires or damaged wires then you need to replace the main board.
do you understand how to reset the control?
okay i will go do that now and yes i understand
