I am having a problem with the start/pause touch pad of my Bosch WAS20160UC washer. I have to try several times before it responds. The washer is 4 years old and I have not had this problem until recently. I am afraid it will fail to start at all!

Your problem Elna is a common issue with this model number.

The start button has started to short from use, This means either the button needs to be replaced or more commonly the user interface control.

This will need to be replaced. To do this take the top off the machine then remove the control panel, once off you will have access to replace the interface (few screws and wires)
