Hello, I have a Bosch Logixx 8 washing machine serial no WAS32461GB/01 showing the error code E57. I have replaced the door lock mechanism and reset but the error code returns. I would appreciate any further thoughts and guidance

Hi
Well I had a look on ye I/net and found someone who appears to have come a cropper as per yourself.
His problem just the same similar non brush motor i.e. an inverter type brushless motor as per your model. With the back removed on the right there is a pcboard which is the motor control board. Seems that that might have blown, it has on this other chaps, so power off and have a look. If you can see that it has blown you now have to find out why ( there might not be a why it might have gone because, well it went pop! ) otherwise things get even more expensive and there lies the problem. On the limited experience I have on this modern c21st stuff it is doubtful it`ll be the motor that caused it, could`ve been the original door lock shorting out .....difficult to say. If you have a test meter I`d check the element too because I have come across the elements going pop on the internal fuse because the relay triggers the element to come on ON SPIN so with no water in the machine whilst you`ve got the back off. If I can up with any other info I`ll post it here but info very poorly available. You might also want to have a look at the instrument pcb too just in case that has gone pop.
I have grave reservations on the quality of Bosch washing machines of the last 10 years. Their dishwashers are even worse, terrible contraptions. Just my opinion.

Thanks for your comments. I was quoted between £90 and £165 for the PCB with at least two weeks before dispatched. Not good enough turnaround for my good lady who found a one-year-old Zanussi for £90 which is now installed.

Does your washing machine stink?

If your washing machine stinks, smells bad or emits strange odours it is most likely to be caused by bacteria build up in the washer. To clean this we recommend using Affresh that you can buy here to clean out the bacteria. And for more detailed advice on washing machine odour you can read our article all about smelly washing machines here
