Bosch Axxis not spinning and not draining water
Hi all - Happy New Year!
I have a 6 year old Bosch Axxis WFL 2090UC front loader that had worked great for many years. Suddenly, it is no longer spinning (to dry the clothes between cycles and at final spin). I found out the reason is that it is not draining water for some reason (I guess when the washer has too much water - or above a certain level, it does not go into spin mode) - if I remove the water manually from the drain hole in the bottom right corner of the machine, it goes through all the cycles properly (including all the spin cycles).
I looked at the drain hole and could not find any obstacles blocking it. Are there other ways to find out obstacles inside the machine?
Has anyone seen this before? Could there be other obstacles somewhere that I cannot see visually?
If the draining mechanism is broken, can it be replaced individually? or should I be looking at a new washing machine?
Any help on how to resolve this would be much appreciated! Please let me know if I can provide any other information.
Thank you in advance.
