Customer Question

Our Bosch washing machine WFR260 UC makes loud clacking noises at startup and with deceleration and acceleration during pauses. (metallic objects? loose screw? ?) Nothing was found in the pump.

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue to get is diagnosed correctly.

IS the noise coming from the pump?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Don't think so. We opened the small door at the bottom right of the washer and checked the pump. It sounds to me like a foreign object or a part might be under the drum.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect you may have something either stuck in the holes of the tub or in one of the drum baffles. Using a flashlight, can you see anything in the drum holes, like a necklace or small screw, bobby pins, anything? Be sure to check the area around the rubber boot in the front, too.

Thank you. I feared I wouldn't hear any answer after the confusion with the first response. We will follow you suggestion before the Bosch repair person comes.

Sorry for the issues with the system at first. Let me know what you find.
