Hi - I have a bosch WFB 2005 washing machine. during a spin (the dial says cottons) - I could hear the machine banging around. It turned out to be switching itself on and off. I switched it off. Took out the sopping wet washing. Closed the door and switched it back on. But it keeps switching itself on and off again. Spinning for a while - then stopping. There's some in the drum (about an inch showing). The drum moves freely when I turn it all the way around. So I'm wondering whether there is a blockage in the drain - I have not idea what to do.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Bosch is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: Ah - I'm thinking maybe 10 years!JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes - if possibleJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I think this might be a red herring - but I found a bolt in the drum! Since there's no indication where it could possibly have come from - I think I inadvertently picked it up off the floor with the washing. I thought at first it might have come from the machine - but I can't see how.
