I had a message that said suds or blocked pump. I opened circle on bottow right of machine and cleared out the debris. After reassembling, machine is leaking water no matter how tight I put the black cover on. I even was careful to insert it properly, as it says downward and has the arrows on it. Please help ASAP!!!

When you have water in the drain clearout I would suggest putting a hose from a wetvac up against as you turn the black plug counter-clockwise. This pulls all the water as it drains out.

I noticed that there is an o-ring seal, make sure it is not torn before reinstalling. Also make sure the center white plug goes in properly as the arrows point out. Then just make sure you line the threads out properly so the threads don't cross thread. This will mean you don't get a proper seal.

I just performed the cleanout and followed the steps above, and it worked perfectly. I would bet it is the o-ring that is torn (that should be fairly cheap to buy).

Cheers
Bob

Our washer is not draining. It said, "suds or not


Check your pump for foreign objects. The pump is right behind the circle on the front of your washer. Take the circle off and you will see it. Unscrew the front of the pump and pull out. This is a trap to collect objects so they do not get caught in your pump propeller. CAUTION! If your washer is full of water be sure to have buckets and rags ready because all the water in the machine is going to come out

Washer has stopped and error says suds or blocked pump


Hi, there is a round cover on the front left corner. Install a pick in the small hole and turn the cover. You will see a twist cap behind the cover. Unscrew the cap and remove what ever is blocking the pump from turning. Watch out because the water in the tub will drain out.

That should fix the problem....

Bosch Nexxt 800 series. We have continued problems with the message "suds or blocked pump" we use HE detergent.. what else?  I have drained it once.. it seems that it continues to not pump out the...


Hello,let the machine rest for a while so suds can disappear then unplug the unit for 1 min then plug it back in it should drain by its self if not do not select wash cycle but a spin/drain then you should hear the pump running, if you don't hear the pump running you can get a wet/dry vac stick on the drain hose and empty the washer, that way if water does not come out you have to access the pump and pinch off the drain hose from the tub and remove the object from the pump, be careful that you don't have a mess with water leaking from the tub good luck.

Thanks

Suds or blocked pump is a message popping up. the door to the front washer won't open as it says the water level is to high.

What does the "sud" message mean?


hello fo2 means if the drain time exceeds 8 minutes the water valves are turned off and f/02 flashes. things to check / check the drain hose for any kinks and blockages check the electrical connection to the pump make sure the pump is running / check the drain pump filter make sure its not block if these do not sort the problem replace the pump. to clear the display press pause and cancel to clear good luck

Door to my washing machine is locked and I can not open it.


I have the same machine, the pump is behind the round door at the bottom of the machine. use a heavy paper clip puched into the little hole to unlock it andwith a rattle motion turn the door clockwise and it will pop off. the pump is right behind it. It's a big screw cap, you will get wet if the machine still has water in it. Use a wet vac if you have one to catch the water. there is also a white plastic door release handle hanging there just a little tug with the machine off and the door will open. good luck ,Chuck

Bosch nexxt washer is leaking from underneath


I found out why mine leaks. In the Bosh design there is a trap molded into the soap dispenser plastic tray. This tray or trap has a wide open path to the inside of the washing machine. We are using the tide pods as a detergent. Two things are going on here. This trap fills up with water immediately when water is cycled into the machine. The second thing is the pods partially dissolve and leave a gunk that blocks the water pathway to the drum. This blockage eventually allows water to pass however when the pressure is high and this blockage is restricting the water level rises and the trap dumps out into the washer panels. This water immediately leaks down and out the bottom. Observation when I disassembled the machine the trap was moldy and stinky. Water stains were running down the inside. Maybe the engineers at Bosch should look into this.
