Water still leaking


We have emptied the filter, it was full of coins and bits of paper. I have just tried to put a wash on and water is coming from the front under the draw. There doesn't seem to be water going into the draw. Any ideas?

Thank you.

If the water is running down the front from underneath the drawer, then I would say that the hose is blocked from the dispenser into the drum.
You need to remove top cover, locate large black hose from dispenser into drum, feel and manipulate it to free any blockage of soap powder..
If the water still does not go into the drum, then you are going to have to remove hose to clear blockage.

Plz rate my solution.

Pre filter full, possibly of coins. When water comes out, it goes thru the pre-filter so it wont damage the pump. Remove front and look for a small bag. Squeeze it. If it feels full, empty it. Be careful that that is all you pull because of the way it's attached to the back.

The error 3 code signals a pump fault. This is most often a blockage in the filter, (Front right bottom corner) and often behind the removable kick strip. If your machine is Full of Water, do not remove this filter until you have got the water from out of the machine manually. This is explained in my next posting. Assuming only a little water remains in the drum, then a big towel to soak this up is all that is needed. Proceed and remove the filter and clean out all the debris, taking time to look and feel inside the filter housing for small coins, buttons, nails etc etc. It is advisable that while you are doing this, to check the sump pipes that come from the base of the drum to the pump and any other pipe that is attached to the filter housing. You may need to tilt the machine back to do this or alternatively dis-connect all pipes and lay down on its side to allow better and easier access. Check all pipes thoroughly and replace correctly ensuring a good fit and tight clamps. Hopefully now you pump will work correctly and discharge the water, typically emptying a full drum in no more than 30 seconds. Please see next posting on 'How to empty drum manually' Hi There, Is your Bosch full of water? If it is empty you can place towel down on floor in front of filter door, usually bottom right corner looking from front and then remove the filter by turning anti-clockwise. The towel is just to catch the residue of water that is always left in the machine even when working properly, around a pint. If your machine is full of water you will need to drain off the excess first, before removing the filter, unless of course you have your machine outside or an area that can cope with a lot of water spewing out. To drain off excess, take empty hose from back of machine and lower into a washing up bowl. If the empty hose(Usually grey in colour) is jubilee clipped half way up back of machine, please remove this clip to aid siphoning into washing up bowl. Once all water is drained you can then proceed with emptying/cleaning the filter as earlier described. If you cannot see the filter at the front (usually right hand side) base then you may need to remove the plastic kick strip that runs across the front base with flat blade screwdriver being careful not to break the plastic retaining tabs that will hold it back in place when you are finished.

I have problem with water flooding from machine I have put unblocker cleaner down waste water down pipe so must be filter on machine on previous machine they have a filter on the front you can clean

Not sure about your machine, we have a front loader. I guess you are talking about the same thing.
There is a filter in the front bottom, to collect pins, coins etc.
If this is not replaced correctly it will leak.
To service this filter unscrew it, clean it and the objects from it, then rescrew it back into the machine.
To test, without running the machine, simply pour some water into the detergent tray at the top. If water comes out the filter - it is not sealed. simply remove and try again.
Hope this solves the problem

Leak from lower door section and from powder door thing.

This could be a partially or completely seized/failed pump.
Before a machine goes in to a spin cycle, it runs the pump to empty all the water out. It used to be quite common that the machine does not check all the water has gone before spinning, it just runs the pump for a set time which if the pump is okay, is long enough to empty it.
If a spin is then started with quite a lot of water left in the drum, it gets thrown everywhere including back out of the powder/conditioner draw. Also the sheer strain of spinning a large amount of water can force water through an otherwise okay door seal.
Unless you are comfortable working on the machine yourself, call an engineer.

Coin trapped between rotating drum and casing

Get underneath the machine and remove the big black house coming directly out of the drum,this is held in place with either a screw tie or pinch type tie.
Put the machine back level and see if the coins drop out (they should) or have a feel around inside the drum.
Please make sure machine is unplugged and empty before carrying out this procedure.
Some water will come out of hose.

Shows 5e fault

Debree filter located at bottom right on the front of the washing machine is blocked. Power needs to be turned off, and compartment to filter opened with a coin before cleaning, there is a hidden tube again to the right and below the filter, pull out cap to this and put bowl below to catch water - there is rather a lot of water so important to do this. Don't forget to clean the filter once water empties out.
