That is a water inlet valve code, meaning the unit is sensing it is taking too long to fill. Check the water supply to the unit. If both hot and cold supply lines are good replace the fill valve on the unit. There are inlet screen inside the valves you can clean as well, but if they are really bad I would still change out a valve.

It seems like that the washer senser is not stopping the incoming water. Will changing the fill valve correct the problem?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 7 months ago

Yes the valve is likely sticking, you can also remove the pressure tube from the pressure switch with the top off the unit and blow through the pressure tube into the outer tub to make sure it is clear. That can cause a similar issue. If you have to shut the water off at the walll to get it to stop the valve is 100% bad.

Bosch nexxt 800 washer sometimes doesn't spin. At least 5
few months ago when it wouldn't spin, I would set it to "refresh" cycle, which would work. Then I'd use less laundry and it seemed to work for some time. Now it seems that it won't spin at all. I just cleaned the drain, then ran it on "hand wash" mode. It would maybe only make one spin every 5 minutes. Then on the last spin cycle, it spun ok (without any laundry). Tempted to run a test on normal mode to see if it works, but worried I might have soaked laundry. Guess it's worth a final test, but I would think regardless, something might be off with the motor.… read more
