I just bought my second set of Bosch washer and dryer. This washer - WAS20160VC - does not have a choice for water level. Does the washer use the appropriate amount of water according to the load bautomatically?

Water pump not working hoover 520l

Cleaning a pump:

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

Replacing the pump on a Bosch machine, please check this link for tips:

What could be a cause of water leaks from Bosch Nexxt 500 gas dryer?

Since there is no water lines connected to a Bosch Nexxt WTMC 6500 gas dryer, the water leak has to be from excess water from the clothes you are trying to dry. Which is probably more the problem.

Does your washer leave an excessive amount of water in the clothes after the spin cycle?

Bosch Vision 800 Series front loading washer. Flashing "water level is too high". We are not getting any water into machine at all. Is there a way to reset?

We had this same problem last night, although we had just purchased this washer 'new' (bought it at Sears, display model, and it's 9 months old but had not been used). We didn't even get the correct user's manual with it, but after running one cycle without laundry the message went away.

Bosch classix washer dryer has just flooded water through its door and drawer whilst on a cycle. Any suggestions?

Several possibilities.
  1. Was water poring out of the drawer when the appliance was in spin?if so then possible cause is that the appliance hasnt draqined its water first. It is trying to spin with water in drum and it has to go somewhere.
  2. Is the appliance overfilling? Water level should just come to the bottom of the door but if you see it rising up to the top of the door then you have a problem with the water level sensor (or a blockage)
From experience with the type of fault you have i would say that its not draining all the water before spin. If you have a pump out function then do this a few times until ALL the water has drained. put a large towel in front of bthe filter and unscrew filter cover and check for a blockage.
If you cant find anything then you may need to call a engineer

Hope this helps

Bosch washing machine will not fill, spin, drain..has power and water to machine...perhaps circuit board?

If it won't fill it may not spin or drain unless the water level switch is bypassed. I would check the water valve & the water level switch and tube from level switch to tub must be air tight no holes.
The water level switch must kick in to agitate. I'm not sure on Bosch but some work like this..

Cant connect the water hoses the machine

Cold fill only , designed to run efficiently on lower temperatures and with cold water powders

Blank off the hot supply line at the back of your washer before you fit it back to the wall.

Only two pipes on the machine Cold In, Waste out

Hot water

new washer valve on washers are designed to be "energy saving" most are 70/30..on warm 70 percent cold and 30 percent hot also new temp controls will reduce temp to a "safe level" by adding cold even on hot setting the on/off of water flow is being controlled by thermal sensor in water line on valve output other words it's normal

Bosch washing machine

With no clothes in the washer start a program. The washe level is below the door glass. the rinse level comes up 3 cm on the glass. The washer is designed to be water efficent. If you are not getting water this high, look at the pressure switch hose, maybe it is restricted and causing the pressure to be held in the washer.
