SOURCE: Cant remove drain pump cap of bosch washing macine

I just replaced my drain pump on my BOSCH washing machine WFL2060-so almost identical to yours. When I posted my question, I was told that it was a pain to do, that many repairmen refuse to do it etc.... even that the front panel does not come off. Well, I am a fairly petite (by athletic) woman, and very far from being an expert at repairing anything....
I just did it in less than 45 minutes with a screw driver and a pair of pliers (and a bit of common sense). Here is the protocol:
1- UNPLUG your machine
2- drain any water that could be left inside (at the bottom front right, you will find a small door: open it, the filter and the small black hose are there)
3- . put an old blanket on the floor behind your machine and a piece of wood long enough to go across the width of your machine- place it half way to what will be the height of your machine once it lies down on the floor- this will save your fingers in case you loose grip of the machine while tilting it down on its back...
4- tilt your machine back and down on its back: use your thigh muscles as the machine si a bit heavy (if you have a friend help you that will be easier-but I did it alone...
5- remove the bottom front panel (2 screws)
6- above the filter access you will see 1 to 3 screws: take them off
7- from the bottom of your machine, take out the electric plug at the back of the pump's motor
8- using your pliers (and a good grip) loosen the metallic braces that hold the 2 hoses and slide them down along each of the hoses
9- the unit will come off into your hand.
10- replace the unit with the new one
11- screw the unit back
12 plug the wires back
13 reposition the hoses (you cannot go wrong, they are on wither side of the pump)
14- slide the braces back onto the hose+pump outlet
15- tilt your machine back
16- plug your machine
17- you are ready for your load!
AND... you have saved about $200 without the part (I ordered it, paid $49 and was delivered to me within 2 business days!)

The correct procedure for removing the filter is to unscrew it anti clockwise, and pull it out.
If it does not come out, then it is possible that there is something stuck in the filter, or the filter seal has swollen
As you unscrew it, try moving it from side to side at the same as you are pulling on it, then screw it back in again, and try the same procedure.
Hope this helps.

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry. As we are scattered all over the world it would be difficult for anyone on the forum to tell people where their 'local' suppliers are, even if we knew where they were ;-0)

Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number.
Alternately you could try telephone directories for spares suppliers but I would think the former would be more successful.
Good luck,

My machine a Bosch excel vario keeps displaying E18 and flashes and keeps pipping I canot get the door open tried two washes


E18 indicates a time out draining.

I'm assuming it's stopped full of water.
Put the machine on spin only and see if it empties and spins.

After that you'll need to check it over.

It's very likely there is a blockage preventing the machine draining.

It can also be a faulty pump or control board but this is less likely.

It's a lot of work but try the following.
Check the drain hose where it connects to the house drains.
If onto a connection, take the hose off and check both for a blockage.

This is normally under the sink.

If ok, you'll need to manually remove the remaining water from the machine.

Put a shallow dish in front of the filter/pump cover. (Bottom front of the machine)

Slacken the cap a little to drain the water.

If there is a draining tube, use that to empty the water.
Tighten the cap to stop the water when you need to empty the container.
(If you pull the machine out and tilt it rearward, you can get a larger container in place for a while).

Once the machine is empty of water, take the cap off.
Clean out any debris in there.

Once cleaned out, take the laundry out of the machine.
With the cap off, put the machine on spin only. (If it resets).

Listen at the open filter to see if the pump is running.
(You should see the pump impellor rotating)
If the pump isn't running, let me know.

If the pump is running, refit the cap and try the machine again.
Good Luck

Suds, F02, clicking sound from drain pump/motor


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi, My Bosch Logixx 8 is showing error F18 which I think means the filter is blocked. we have lost the manual so how do you get the filter out. Do we need to drain the machine first? Is there an online...


F18 is either the pump discharge is clogged or the machine is oversudsing. If it is oversudsing, make sure that you are using an HE detergent and use less detergent. (Make sure to note the minimum detergent line

To clean out the pump discharge, have a bucket ready for when you release the hose. First, set the cycle selector to Off and unplug the washer. Open the service door and remove it. Next loosen the screws and remove the protective foil. Remove the emptying hose from the holder and take off the cap. Drain the water from the hose. Replace the cap. Then carefully remove the pump cap and drain the rest of the water from the pump. Clean out any foreign objects from the area (housing, threads of the pump cap, etc). Make sure that the impeller can turn. Then replace the pump cap and tighten the screws (the handle should be vertical). Replace the emptying hose and the foil protector. Replace the service door and plug back in. Then fill the dispenser II with 1 liter of water and then start the Drain cycle. Let this water flow through to the pump.

The manual is available from Bosch. Go to http://www.bosch-home.com/us/WAS24460UC.html?source=search and click on Additional Documents . Then click on User Manual. This will redirect you to the correct page. Select your specific model and the language and click on the manual with the IU designation. The pictures to go with the clogged pump are on page 9 of the PDF.

The filters that can get blocked are in the water inlets. To clear those, turn off the water to the washer. Select a cycle and press Start/Pause. Wait 40 seconds then set the selector to Off. Unplug the washer. Then remove the inlet hoses. Clean and replace the filters at both sides of the hose. You will need pliers to remove the filters from the washing machine side. Then reconnect the hoses and check for leaks.

I hope this helps.

Unable to remove pump cap from model WFL2860,read the manual, turn cap to the left, but it will not leave the housing. any suggestions?.


Pull outwards on the cap as you are rotating it to the left. Sometimes they get kinda stuck and are hard to pull out. Make sure you have unscrewed it all the way out as you are turning and pulling on it.

Will not drain in drain cycle


If you can hear the pump attempting to pump the water out, disconnect the dishwasher drain hose and place a bucket underneath it and run the drain cycle again. This should clear any clogs along the drain line and prove that your pump works. While you've got it disconnected, remove the air gap vent and clean it. A small, but large enough amout of debris can be blocking the flow of water from the dishwasher's drain hose to the garbage disposal or drain pipe. The air vent has a small cap at the top that can be removed to make cleaning easier by simply flushing it with water.

Bosch wsher reading E04


On the Bosch washer this indicates a problem at the pump. Probably some sort of obstruction. You may need a #15 Torx screwdriver. There should be a small round access door at the bottom front of the washer. If you turn it to the left you should be able to remove it to gain access to the pump cleanout port. Be ready with lots of towels when you remove the cap from the drain pump. There will most likely be a flood. LOL
Clean out anything that is clogging the pump. (like the occasional stray sock) Check the condition of the pump at the same time, but there is most likely something clogging the pump. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Bosch 1200 classic express washing machine wont spin


Providing the machine isn't requiring major breakdown repair, the problem should be solved by emptying the machine and cleaning the drain pump. If this is obstructed the maching won't drain or spin as any bits left in clothes (paper clips, coins, nails, screws etc) wedge themselves into the (what I call a fly wheel) the pump impeller wheel at the back. If the fly wheel can't rotate the machine cannot pump or spin.

So.........turn off the washing machine before you fiddle about with it. Then, at the bottom right-hand side at the front of the machine there's a drop down door. Take this down and take it off. Then, lower the drain hose from its holder and pull the hose out of its housing. Be very careful if you're doing this while you have very hot water in the machine. To be safe, let the water cool before starting. Next take off the closing cap from the hose and empty the water from the machine. There are times when the water doesn't empty by this method so carefully open the door to the machine and bale it out. If the water does come out via the hose, have a suitably sized bucket at the ready as up to 20litres can be drained. Once you've done this, put back the closing cap of the drain hose and returned the drain hose to its holder, unscrew (anti clockwise) the petrol tank cap look-a-like placing a towel underneath as a little residual water will flow out. The pump impeller (fly wheel) must be able to rotate so clean out any residual fluff from the thread of the pump cap and pump housing before returning the pump cover and screwing tightly on. Put back the drop down flap and, hopefully, away you'll go again.

Hope this is of some help.

Answer
Make sure that drain hose and drain filter are not bent or clogged. In case of there are objects in the drain filter, It might drain to slow or not at all. HOW TO CLEAN THE DRAIN FILTER 1. Allow the washer to cool down before cleaning the drain pump filter. 2. Open the lower cover cap with a tool such as coin. 3. At this time use a catch pan to prevent water from flowing onto the floor. Unplug the drain plug, allowing the water to flow out. When water does not flow any more, turn the pump filter open to the left. 4. Remove any foreign objects from the pump filter. After cleaning, turn the pump filter clockwise and insert the drain plug to the original place. Close the lower cover cap. If the drain filter is not clogged, you will need to call LG Customer Service at 800-243-0000.

The water will not drain from our Bosch washing machine


Most likely an obstuction in the pump assy. If you have a full size machine there is a pump clean out panel in the lower right hand corner. Turn and remove the panel. Remove the pump clean out cap ( be ready for water with a wet vac or towels) and remove the obstructions.

Check the drain pump. It may be jammed. Remove filter and try to turn impellar by hand . If not turning freely, replace pump or remove obstruction.
