Question about Bosch Nexxt Premium WFMC6400UC Front Load Washer

Seals keep ripping out on the washer, which causes other probs

We have had this Bosch washer for 3 years now, and have liked it fairly well, but we had a seal completely rip out on us, and we thought it was just something sharp in the washer, or maybe a zipper on a pair or jeans, so we went along and neglected it for awhile because my husband didn't have the time to fix it, so anyway the circuit board went funky on us and started giving us error codes and all, so he had to take the pump out to make sure it wasn't bad, and then he went to the circuit board, and all he had to do to that was clean the gunk off that was slung on it from the seal being bad.  Now today, we had a load that was really making a lot of noise in the basement, (oh, by the way, we had it on reduced spin).  It was not overloaded and it was balanced to the best of our ability.  Is this a common problem with these washers?  This is the second seal we have bought in the last 3 years, and frankly, with all the other little stuff, such as error codes and stuff, we are about ready to give up on it.  Help!  Thanks.

Info from a bosch tech. alot of times the boot gasket gets ripped from clothes not put in machine fully. and also the basic take things out of pocket. I remember fixing a washer and the customer sworn up and down that she didnt have anything in her pockets she check every wash the whole nine. so after i manually drained the unit guess what i so. 3bobbi pins and 2 pennies. so just be very careful with what you load. sometimes clothes get stuck between the gasket and the tube,

Bosch front load washer...WFMC3200UC...6+ years old...light to medium duty...no problems UNTIL we now have an apparent slow leak into the drum when the washer is completely "at rest". I assume...


I would take the water pump ad trip it to clear the rotating shaft of possible cotton threds or other debris stuck in-between the rubber water seals as this can cause a slow dripping of the water as it creeps between the still shaft of the water pump eric

Why does my maytag fridge drip water around the freezer door?


Freezer door frames have a small heating element in them to stop that happening. Your element is failed.

Torn gasket seals just cause frost inside, but also cause the compressor extra stress if the seal is bad. This causes the compressor to keep running as yours does. They are cheap to buy and easy to fit.

With a 12 year old one, it is probably time for a new one. The new ones are more energy efficient and are cheaper to run.

A mold smell from my washing machine


IMPORTANT: Read thoroughly. DO NOT add detergent or other laundry products to this cycle.
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. If the bad odour persists, repeat the procedure 1 or 2 more times. This may be necessary if this is the first time you have run this cycle.
7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly.
To maintain the washer freshness:
1. Use only HE High Efficiency detergent.
2. Leave the door open after each cycle to for better ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
3. Use warm / hot water in your machine unless the fabric you are washing requires cold.
4. Use the correct amount of fabric softener.
5. If your laundry room is damp, use a dehumidifier.
6. Clean the door seal of visible residue.

BOSCH WASHER REPLACEMENT PART


I have the same problem. Bosch no longer stocks the replacement for my particular washer which has the same model no but could be a different fd #. I now have the wrong part as directed by bosch which doesnt have the hose connection. I am not sure what to do with the hose leading to nowhere. Bosch is living off of an undeserved good reputation.


In the present, the reputation is not deserved. Bosch products should only be recommended to enemies. The company and the especially the customer service is beyond deplorable. I hate these appliances. I feel ripped off! The part by the way, which is wrong, is 100.00 with tax.

Bosch dishwasher will not drain - causing moldy odor


Hello Mimhoff it depends on how much water is down there. The sump area always has a little water in it to prevent the circulation pump seals from sticking. Usually around 1 to 2 inches. If there is more than that, check the slots at the bottom of the sump on the left side for being clogged and check the end of the drain hose to make sure it is clear. If you are getting a moldy/odor from the dishwasher, try running Dishwasher Magic or Tang thru the dishwasher. This will remove any build up of food or detergent from the dishwasher. If you are running the dishwasher every few days and just scraping your dishes, then either leave the door ajar or run the rinse & hold cycle to help keep the odor down. Bosch doesn't reccommend running bleach thru the dishwasher as this can cause damage to the rubber seals. However 2 tablespoons of bleach once a year won't hurt.
