I can help , If the unit is leeting water in with the power off the only thing it can be is the water inlet valve , it is the componet you connect your water line to under the unit behind the front lower panel. Tell me if you have any other questions and let me know how this works out.

Remove rear panel of washer.
Remove drive belt.
Unscrew the 2 bolts that hold motor to tub back.
Remove motor plug
Lever notor back with a screwdriver or similar, keeping a firm hold on motor.and remove motor
At the rear end of motor away from pulley you will see the brushes and the armature.
Remove brushes, and if there is less than 4 or 5mm of carbon left, then replace them.
Lightly clean the armature with emery cloth.
Refit in reverse order. Test.
Plz rate my solution.

this simply mean that some of your material have gone to block the water flow out unit what you have to do is to bale out the water then remove the cloth that have block the pipe .

Hello, To enter test program for WFK 2401 washers: 1) Set cycle knob to any "X" (reset) position 2) Press and hold Pre-Wash and Start buttons at the same time. While still holding Pre-Wash and Start buttons, turn unit on by pressing On/Off button. When test program has been entered: Start light will flash
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description it sounds like a faulty door lock mechanism. As you may or may not already know the 06 error code for the WFK2401 Bosch washer indicates an error in the lock has been detected.
This is from the Bosch service tips I have, so you should be able to check it with this info...
I also have this available to you in "pdf" and I can send you if you want to provide an email address since the "pdf" cannot be attached or sent via these post's.
You can also run a self diagnostic/test program by following these steps I've laid out, then let me know what you find...I suspect a faulty lock as I alluded to though.
3) Keep holding Pre-Wash and Start buttons (only) until digital display comes on (~ 5 seconds).
**HINT: Turning washer off at any time will end test program**
Digital display will show 00 for no faults or will show fault codes below:
Let me know what you find as I said or if you require further assistance. Thanks for choosing FixYa for your repair inquiry and good luck
