My Bosch has satrted making a rattling sound like some nuts and bolts rattling around when it starts the spin cycle. It stops after a while and sometimes starts up again. Does anyone have any idea what that might be?

It's possible that there could be a small coin or some such item between the two drums...or it could be the suspension going on it...

...very hard to tell without actually hearing it.

Well I hope it's not the suspension. It's barely three years old!! The concern I have is it won't spin after the wash cycle. I have to set it to the optional spin cycle to make it wring out the water. Woes me.

Have you check to see if its not related to a motor problem? some time when a washer do not spin it might be related to a motor problem or it might be set to a no spin setting after the main wash like a soak cycle?

If it's only rattling during the spin, check the pump for debris, the rattle could be stuff moving around in there as the drain starts. That would also explain why stuff isnt drying out during the spin, assuming that the drum is still spinning at normal speed.

If I can figure out how to get to the motor, ect. I can't tell if you access it from the fron of the back.
