Customer Question

Hi Bryan, I have a Bosch Exxcel 8 washing machine and it seems to have lost its brains. It runs fine but won't finish a program. It gets down to one minute and then just keeps on washing. There are no error codes showing. Is there a way to reset the machine?

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! You can try an extended power cycle by unplugging the machine for at least 4 hours. Does the behavior change? If not, please post the complete E number and I can get you the manual reset instructions through the buttons.

Left it unplugged all night but it has made no difference.

The test routine for your model is available below. Can you retrieve any error codes manually in the test mode?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No error codes are shown.

Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
Okay, so now run a regular cycle. Once you initiate a service cycle, it factory resets, so if it still has issues, the controller will likely need to be replaced.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

OK, will try it tomorrow and let you know.
