Question about Washing Machines
Hi there, I had our washing machine delivered on Saturday, put it on a test run (15 min express) with no soap or clothing. Got down to 12 mins and then stopped and it refused to drain.... Called Bosch, they mentioned something about the petrol cap looking thing at the bottom right of the washer. So i openened it, water came spilling out all over the laundry floor... So after this i tried another 15 min wash, it worked, the whole wash and it drained. But afterwards, I opened the cap again and more water came out... Do I have to be doing this after every wash?? Should I even have to be doing this at all? I dont really want to be flooding the floor every time i need a clean set of clothes.... Cheers
I have a Bosch Maxx WFO 2050 Front Loader and have been unable to get the cap of to the filter recently.
It has worked in past but wouldnt budge this time.
Any way I have broken the plastic cap / plug and was wondering if someone knew were to get a replacement

you only need to check the filter once a month or so depending on what you wash - blankets for example give off a lot of fluff. to help prevent water spilling out when you check, put machine on drain and check filter while draining.

The filter is usually located at the bottom right front of washer, sometimes behind a removeable cover, or a drop down flap.If you can locate it, then unscrew it anti-clockwise to remove and clean it.
There is also a possibility that there could be a hole or tear in the door seal so check the seal as well.
Hope this is of some help to you .
