SOURCE: Bosch washing machine leaks at right bottom

The part that you removed, was the pump filter, the pump is located behind the filter, possibly, the pump itself is leaking, or the filter cover is not fastened in tight enough, pr the filter seal is defective, if after tightening, it still leaks, suggest you replace the pump.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck.

The door typically locks as a result of the unit failing to drain, also the E13 kind of one in the same...usually.


**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner) macmarkus_26.jpg
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.

3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful).


4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand or with the aid of pliers.

**NOTE - you should also see a ring attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first if present is usually a good plan


macmarkus_31.jpg


Once the door is open and you've removed the items you wanted. Unplug the washer for 20minutes or so ( or short the the cord that plugs in the wall...while it's unplugged, to discharge the capacitor thus clearing the memory in the control ) and then plug it in again, to see if the control "resets".

**It's possible the pump has failed or the check ball/back flow is obstructed or "gummed up" but you'll need to try these things fist as the later is a little (or a lot, depends on ones ability) involved to address. Yellow arrow...disregard the orange arrow**

Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "FixYa" and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: CANNOT GET DOOR TO OPEN

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck.

**The door typically won't unlock as a result of the unit failing to drain due to an obstruction, excessive suds, also the E13 error (though it won't always show up) kind of one in the same...usually, but the pump failing can cause this as well**


**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**


This is the info regarding the WTVC ( vision ) series Bosch washers which differ from other prior models.

**Unplug the washer from it's power source...safety first**

macmarkus_16.jpg
The next step is as follows,

macmarkus_18.jpg

Following this ( or in reverse order it's your call if you think there may be substantial water still present ) I'd do this step first...checking the pump filter. It may be a good plan to have towels close by, or a wet-dry shop vacuum.

It's as follows...

macmarkus_20.jpg


Then the filter removal...


macmarkus_21.jpg

That should resolve the problem, As I also alluded to before there is a small possibility the pump itself is faulty, but not likely.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and good luck. Let me know if you need further assistance or if any of this is unclear.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Bosch 500 series error E13 can't get to the front pump

make sure the machine is unplugged,, turn water hose off and undo it from the machine.. then undo the waste pipe now pull machine out and lay a cushion on the floor at the back of the machine.. lay the machine on the cushion (so its on its back) undo one screw bottom end near pump on plimpth and push plimpth to the right and once off you will see 3 screws around the pump,, undo them and pump should fall down,, now you have the pump in your hands it should unscrew,, take out all the **** from the pump,, once you have cleared everything you should put everything back together.

Sarah, you have scratched or damaged the gasket/oring.. or you have trash around the gasket/oring sealing area

Water pump


Could be either. Try tightening the clamp on the hose. If still leaking, probably the pump. There is a hole on bottom of pump behind the pump pulley, called a "weep hole". If the pump's internal seal is bad, this hole will leak coolant. Can you get a piece of mirror situated right to view this area? Or if you see white stains on the pump behind the pulley, that could be coolant leak.

Transmission pump leaks


Three reasons for leaks out of pump area( really 4 but the pump seal is never the leak)1 someone has not sealed the pan properly and fluid is seeping up through pan bolt hole into bell housing and leaking out.2 pump oring is old and hard due to heat and time (most common)3 someone has repaired a pump oring or rebuilt the transmiision and used a threade rod slide hammer to remove the pump(big no no) and damage the sealing area where the pump bolts seal(can silicone the bolts to fix this).I would pull the bottom pan and clean both surfaces with brake clean and allow the trans to drain for an hour , then apply a 1/8 inch bead of black or ultra grey pematex all the way around tthe clean dry pan( make sure you go to the inside of bolt holes and not the outside) allow the silicone to cure for 5 minutes before you mate the pan with the case.Good luck!

My Bosch Maxx 2000 WFO 2060 is leaking from the bottom. Could it be that a filter somewhere needs to be cleaned? If so where is the filter located?


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 .

Water Leak at bottom of unit


hi there,

leaks a quite frustrating once they happen but there aren't that many places that you can have a leak. i would recommend looking at the drain pump and ensuring all seals are ok. after that focus on the door itself. are the seals okay, the door liner, etc?

It just the pump noise. Since your dishwasher works properly you can ignore this noise.
