Bosch WFK 2401 Full of Cold Water!

We have an 8-year old Bosch WFK 2401 washer that has worked flawlessly.

We did laundry thsi past Sunday and all was well. Today, Friday, we went to do a load and when we opened the washer door, water started gushing out. The washer was probably half full of water.

We don't have any error messages.

Any ideas any one?

leaks could be from anywhere. remove the top and back cover, put on a cycle and try to trace where leak is. sorry if this is not very helpful. water in filter should not smell. this may be due to using liquid detergent which causes a smell like drains if used over a period. put on a boil wash and revert to using powder

I have a Bosch washer model WFK 2401 and I need a new pressure switch. The repair company I'm dealing with says that they can't get the part from Bosch any longer. Do you have any suggestions for...


Hi,

We own a Bosch- probably nearly 20 years old. I manged to get the parts I needed- but we live in France and I buy on-line from the UK!
I would go onto the Bosch site. You will probably find spares suppliers from which to inquire. Also I'm sure you could query the Bosch site directly.
I'm not criticizing your repair company but I will be very surprised if the part was not available from somewhere.

Good luck,

Our Bosch WFK 2401 keeps filling with hot water - even when a cold cycle is selected.


The problem is the water inlet valve has failed. Although it is only the cold water the whole valve needs to be replaced. There are 2 solenoids on the valve 1 for cold 1 for hot the cold water solenoid has failed. The reason it works in the softner is it uses a separate solenoid to let water in there.

Bosch WFK 2401 hot water wont shut off even if you turn power off


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.
