Child lock active.
Hold start button 10 seconds.
Then it will deactivate.

If this is not the case, door lock fault or main board fault.

there is a possibility that the water censor tube is blocked and wont let the program advance to the next stage, unplug the machine take the water supply off pull out the machine remove the back cover and you will find a small pipe about 5mm across going upward towards the top of the machine, take it off and blow gently into it you should hear a faint click and one when you release if that is the case then go back to the place where you took it from and unblock the small metal pipe with a pipe cleaner or similar item this usually will cure your problem sometimes the washing powder or fluid dose nt clear away properly leaving the hole blocked preventing the control board from activating the wash cycle here's hoping eric

Just going on these symptoms, you may need a new control/timer.
Inside the control /timer are electrical contacts, and when your machine gets to that part of the cycle, the contacts are not closing to allow the cycle to complete.
If you have circuit board, you will perhaps need a new one of those.
If you do not, probably a control/timer assembly.
If you type "SeasPartsDIrect" into you computer's search engine, and then type your complete model number into the blank when you are asked for it, you may look at the schematic and see whether you have a control / timer or a circuit board.
God bless your efforts.

"E3" on a Bosch Maxx means the door is not closed properly. Either there something preventing it from closing properly (blockage) or there is a fault with the locking mechanism.

Many things stop front load washers from spinning. Such as, it didn't drain all the water, the door is not locking, it is unbalanced, the pressure switch does not operate or there is a hole in the pressure switch tube. The drain pump has a foreign object stuck in the impeller. Just a few to check

You have to make sure that the spring part is towards the bottom of the front. If you look closely at the washer at the bottom you will see a groove. That groove is where that spring will need to end up otherwise the whole thing will keep poping I install is I use a 90 degree pick tool. I work the edge of the seal with the metal ring and making sure it lines up with the groove. once there is tension on the spring I streatch it with the 90 degree pick tool and continue to work the rest of the gasket around. Once you get that completed I push down on the spring to make sure that it is in there. If it is not it takes one door opening to make it fall all apart and you have to start over.

Put less in it

No agitation?

first use a multi meter and check ur water pressure switch? that is what sends the machine the message to start wash cycle?
You can test it with a meter and with a manual test? ( first locate it in the panel, it has a plastic clear tube hose going into it, remove that tube from its connection, now put another small tube or hose into the slot where it was and have the machine set to wash cycle with water in it. Blow into the other end of the tube.
If the machine starts to wash. the pressure switch is more than likely good
( If No wash- then THE DIAPHRAGM IS BAD AND SWITCH HAS TO BE REPLACED) another test u can do is Remove the hose and submerge in water. Seal one end and blow air into the other end and look for bubbles. Check for an obstruction in the hose as well.
Or take the original hose tube and plug one end and blow into it AT the other end, it should be hard and have pressure, if it is easy to blow and u dont feel any pressure and it feels like the air is going out ?
Sometimes they get busted open or a pin hole and release air causing the water switch diaphragm to not open.

Another test u can make with a multi meter is by testing the prongs individually.
# 15,16,17 (don't worry to much bout the numbers IF U GET THEM WRONG) place ur meter prongs on both out side prongs or connectors of the switch.
(where the wire plugs into) take note of weather it shows OHMS or infinity ( open or close circuit) ? Now place the meter on the left outside and the middle prong, take note agin what it shows. Now place meter prong on the right outside and the middle prong. Agin take note what reading u get. ( you should actually get a reading of infinity in 1 and a reading of continuity or ohms in the other 2? Now the tricky part. Agin place a small tube or hose into the switch and blow into it, using the meter do the same test agin on all prongs. But now keep the pressure on the switch when u blow into it, in other words use ur tongue on one end of tube to not allow air to escape. When u test it agin now one of the prongs that once read infinity should now show continuity or ohms, and 1 of the other prongs that read ohms should now read infinity or open.

If both check ok then next CHECK the motor coupler (a bad couplercan be checked by looking under the machine and taking note if there is a black residue on floor, look at coupler located between the motor and tranny, and see if it is broken up or missing any parts? Try to turn shaft by hand and notice if it does not engage tub? )
or belt if belt driven. Check for loose, broken or worn belt .

Then check the door switch with a multi meter for continuity OHMS when door closed and infinity when door is opened , and if there is a little movement on wash cycle in 1 direction only then check the cam dogs in agitator.

Also check THE CAM DOGS INSIDE THE AGITATOR, AS THEY WILL HINDER THE AGITATION PROCESS. However in G.E models the cam dogs are replaced with what is called an agitator coupler. (located at bottom of tub)
Remember to check the agitator spline as well. for worn broken teeth
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

The Nexxt 100 has a Spin, but not a Pin.
Better luck on a computer forum. ;^)

Because you have e too much soap and froth in the machine. The level sensor thinks is is still not full of water make sure that you don't over soap the machine and clearly ensure a filter is not blocked in the pump trap down the borrow of the front panel under the little door opening. Open this up and clear all obstacles . Good luck.

Bosch Nexxt 100... | Answered on Nov 05, 2014 | 165 views

Yes...they use less they start, tumble, then cycle again adding more water. I use the fastest setting on all my clothes which is 1/2 hour. It also does start and stop during spinning to tumble the clothes. It speeds up as it goes thru each stop till it spins real fast. All my clothes wash perfectly on fastest cycle.

Either no power at outlet or electronic control module faulty
check power at point with say a hair dryer
if ok electronic control will need replace

Bosch Nexxt 100... | Answered on Aug 06, 2014 | 361 views

Almost certainly it's the fuseable link in the rear of the dryer. It's about a $15 part, and very easy to check and change. If you take the rear cover off its a small white part with two wits of the same color connected to it, and it's on the blower housing. It should have continuity if you check it. Make sure that you disconnect one of the series to get an accurate reading of continuity. If it doesn't have continuity, it needs to be replaced.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at
