Washer Powers Itself OFF Then Resumes Again After A Few Minutes
I have a Bosch WAS32742AU/08 washer, it will wash, rinse then will power itself OFF with nothing on the display when it reaches the softening cycle with where it begins to fill water (there is about 10mins left in the cycle). I can turn the dial OFF then back to the same program to resume the cycle, it will start filling with water again in the softening stage and power off again.
I've checked the water level pressure switch hose and cleaned the chamber, I dont't think there is a problem with that because it works during the cycle until the softening stage.
I got into the Valve test mode and found that Value 1 and Valve 2 tests are OK individually but when it V1 and V2 are both ON to fill the middle softener dispenser compartment it wont stop filling and eventually the machine powers off.
I posted a video of the test here: https://vimeo.com/264199360
Do you know what the problem could be?
The washer is 7 years old.
I can run and complete the "Drain" only cycle, "Rinse" only cycle, "Spin" only cycle and 15min "Quick" cycle without interruptions.
It's only programs that has the "Softening" part of the cycle it powers off when filling water in the middle dispenser compartment during the softening stage where Valve 1 and Value 2 are open. I don't even use softener and the compartment is clean.
The current work around is when it Powers OFF during softening, I turn the dial to OFF then select the rinse only cycle to complete the washing.
So today it stopped and powered OFF itself randomly even on the Spin only and Rinse only cycles. What I've found is that when it powers OFF if I leave it for long enough it will power itself back ON and continue and then it might power off and resume again until it finishes.
The current symptom is exactly like what this person described in this review https://www.productreview.com.au/qa/bosc... but I haven't been able to contact them regarding their solution.
Is this a good question?
