Just pop it off with a small srewdriver and yes you can get to the fluff filter through the round cover

For majority of bosch washers, the filter is to be found behind a removable plastic panel at the front bottom of the washer; unscrew filter anti-clockwise, clean and refit .

Bosch washer will not spin


Check the pump filter. This is located at the bottom front right of washer. Look for a drop down flap or cover, once located, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean. Be prepared for a lot of water and junk. If you find a closed hose pipe when you remove the drop down flap it is to drain excess water.
The pump itself is directly behind the filter housing, check if there is nothing stuck in the housing, especially after you are cleaning out your filter after a long time. Clean out and refit carefully

I am replacing the lock, what does the plastic rod hanging down from it do and does it need to be attached to anything


It attaches to a pull strap. The pull strap is in case the switch fails it can be pulled to get the door open. Most bosch pull straps are located behind the drain filter cover (lower right).

You first of all need to check the pump filter.
This should be located at the botom front right of washer.
Look for a drop down flap or cover, once located, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

This should solve the prob.
Please leave feedback for my solution.

I have a bosch washer about 3 years old. It suddenly stopped on spin cycle and water would not drain even when I put it to drain only. The motor chatters now like a car with a battery that is dead. Is this...


It does sound like the problem is related to the water pump.
The filter should be located at the bottom front right of washer, sometimes behind a removeable cover.
Locate filter, and remove by turning anti-clockwise, and clean, check inside the filter housing for anything in there as well.
Hope this helps.

The water won't drain from my Bosch Nexxt 500 Series Washer machine


I solved the problem by using a sump pump to drain most of the water, then I removed the cover plate on the lower front right of the machine to get access to the drain plug. Upon removing that, some water flowed out but not too much, I found a sock jammed in there which wasn't allowing the drain or spin cycle to work properly.

Interestingly, the machine's manual says that the cover plate is only to be removed by a Bosch authorized service repair representative. Saved about $150 by simply doing this myself.

Front loading washer does not advance past the rince cycle


Check and clean filter, it is usually located behind a plastic panel at the bottom front of the washer, remove cover and unscrew the filter cover anti clockwise, pull out and clean, replace and test, if it still does not drain, then possibly pump blocked or faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
