I am checking out a Bosch WAS20160UC Axxis Washer that did not drain. I took it to my shop and plugged it into 208 Volts and tried to see if the pump was running but when I turn to Drain or Spin and press start the start/pause light comes on steady but nothing happens for a few seconds then it gives 4 beeps 3 times and the Reduced Spin, Gentle Spin and Rinse LEDs flash. What does that mean? Do I need to connect water to test the motors?

I would suggest hooking it up to water.  When they start up the board runs a self diagnostic,  If anything isn't correct; it shuts down.  If you have power to the pump, a clear drain hose and it's not draining... you need a pump.

I will try that but i would like to know what the flashing lights mean. Does anyone have a comprehensive listing of error codes (lights) for this machine?
The code I am getting is not listed in the Test Program - Coding Instructions or the manuals I have found on-line.
