    Please can anyone tell me the reset procedure for a Bosch Exxcel 1400
    washing machine? It keeps stopping at random intervals. Sometimes it
    restarts when left for a while, other times after being switched off and on
    at the mains supply. The problem began after power was removed while it was

    Many thanks in advance - this will contribute much to domestic harmony!

    This model doesn't appear to have those buttons - most of the programming
    is by a knob and the buttons are: Start, Reduced ironing, Rinse plus, and
    Reduced time. I've tried pressing all combinations of two of these, and all
    combinations of three of them, for 3 seconds, with no effect. So, thank you
    and I'm grateful for your contribution, but it must be for a different
  3. I'm going to suggest something potentially dangerous.

    Turn the machine on and pull out the plug while it's running.

    I've owned at least three products for which this cleared a lockup.

    Thanks to both spamtrap1888 and to William Sommerwerck. I've tried both
    suggestions, but no success. The manuals from Bosch don't give a reset
    procedure (I suppose that would be in a repair manual, but isn't in the
    user manuals). I've also tried switching it off a few times while running,
    but no improvement. Think what I need is a reset procedure that might be in
    a repair manual...
