Bosch washing machine leaks at right bottom

My model WFMC3301UC washer leaks about a cup of water with every load. Water comes out near the round "cut out" on the bottom, right. I opened up the round "cut-out", I see something round, black, that I turned and opened; water gushed out.
I've read about gunk in a pump, where is the pump on this machine?
Thanks!

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.

    I've have a Bosch washing machine that has leaked since new. While under guarantee a technician assured me it was because the water was very "soft" in Vancouver and only a small amount of soap should be used. I have been using very little soap and the problem has persisted - for about 9 years. I'm just very irritated by it - and have never understood the explanation. There is never any foam generated. I'm now about to rent my house out and can't expect my tenants to put up with this - and am contemplating buying another (NON BOSCH) machine. I feel that I paid for more than I got - and seldom use the machine. The experience has not been a pleasant one.

that is the drum vent. there is a mushroom valve inside to prevent water from coming out.when it fails, water comes out of vent. the valve either needs to be replaced or cleaned and reinserted. the top cover will need to be removed to do this. remove 2 back bottom screws and slide top towards rear to remove.

Bosch Nexxt 500 WFMC3301UC Front Load Washer is leaking water somewhere inside the unit. It is only doing this from the hot water source. All connections are tight and there are no external leaks. The cold...


It sounds like it may be the hot water valve, the valve itself may be leaking or the water pressure from your hot supply may not be high enough to 'lock' the valve fully when not energized. The second problem could be rectified by using a 'y' piece splitter on you cold supply and running both valve on cold water,

Maytag top load washing machine leaking water from bottom


The machine is leaking water from the bottom, I think the leak is in the area near where the motor is mounted. Before we noticed the water comes from underneath the washer, we smelled like burning rubber.

Water leak


it sounds like the bleach fill line. at the top of the washer is a bleach fill cup, it might attach to it. this black bleach fill line attaches to the bleach fill cup to the bottom of the tub.

Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!

YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!

The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.

La Trisha, There could be many reasons for the leak, however usually all leaks are visable. Your model is a direct drive pump and motor and I have seen a lot of these pumps go bad and leak. You will have to remove the front panel. There should be 2 clips, one on each side of the washer top. Push a putty knife in these clips and the front panel should pop out from the top. Now you will be looking right at the pump on the bottom. It is held on with 2 clips and 2 clamps, a real easy fix. When you remove the front panel, let the washer fill a little again and see if the water is pouring from the pump. You will also be able to get a look at all the other hose attachments. The part number for the pump is 3363394. Good luck..
