Question about Bosch 3.81 cu ft WFMC530 1UC Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer
I purchased a new drain pump and cannot determine how to replace the old one.
The best way to change a pump is to do the following.
make sure the machine is fully disconnected and pulled clear.
remove the lid and using folded cardboard or old carpet, jam it down the side of the drum on the opposite side to the drain pump.
very carefully tilt the machine over onto its side (again cardboard or carpet on the floor to reduce damage to the side.
this should now give you access to the underneath of the machine with a good view of the pump with all the hose connections and wiring.
disconnect the wiring connector (usually held in place my a tag so may need a bit of a wiggle to get it out. it only fits one way, but just in case, take a picture to make sure.
using pliers or mole wrench, remove the clips from the inlet and outlet of the pump. leave the clips on the hoses so you dont loose or mix them up.
the pump can now be removed by unscrewing the unit from the front of the machine using a crossheaded screwdriver (normally a PZ2)
then its a simple case of reversing the procedure.
Dont forget to remove the packing in the washing machine and make sure all the connections are on correctly and secure.

possibly the motor brushes.
take back panel off. disconnect motor. remove bolts holding motor in and take out motor. check condition of brushes

SOURCE: TURN OFF ALARM
Assuming you have allready checked the operators manual, check again on page 19 for "Accoustic Signal". To deactivate the signal select a program press two of the option buttons and hold until a short signal is emitted. There you have it.

during transport there are fittings installed to prevent damage to the machine. The shaft may have got bent but before panic sets in try to check 1. that there is a gap between the mahine and units
2. that the unit is leveled.

You first of all need to check the pump filter.
This should be located at the botom front right of washer.
Look for a drop down flap or cover, once located, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean.
The pump itself is directly behind the filter housing, check there is nothing stuck in the housing.
This should solve the prob.
Please leave feedback for my solution.

You need to check and clean the pump filter if you have not already done so.
This is located at the bottom front right of washer.
Unscrew anti-clockwise to remove and clean.
