Bosch nexxt washer is leaking from underneath

My three-year-old Bosch is leaking water/suds from underneath during the final spinning. The leak seems to be from the left corner at the back of the machine. Any ideas?

    Our 2005 model nexxt washer is also leaking from the same area.Have checked connections and can't see where it's coming from.

    My 2004 NEXXT WFMC 3200 Washer also started leaking from underneath the washer on the left side. The seal around the door seems intact and in good condition. I've pulled out the machine to confirm it is leaking from the bottom. All water lines and connections are tight and there is no water apparent near these lines. We use minimum soap and it's not overflowing in the drain. I've moved the machine around in case is wasn't flat on the floor with no change in the amount of water leaking. I'm calling a repair person. I'll post the solution...

I found out why mine leaks. In the Bosh design there is a trap molded into the soap dispenser plastic tray. This tray or trap has a wide open path to the inside of the washing machine. We are using the tide pods as a detergent. Two things are going on here. This trap fills up with water immediately when water is cycled into the machine. The second thing is the pods partially dissolve and leave a gunk that blocks the water pathway to the drum. This blockage eventually allows water to pass however when the pressure is high and this blockage is restricting the water level rises and the trap dumps out into the washer panels. This water immediately leaks down and out the bottom. Observation when I disassembled the machine the trap was moldy and stinky. Water stains were running down the inside. Maybe the engineers at Bosch should look into this.

All the things that greendude said plus check the seams inside the drum as if these have even slightly parted it could cause the leak you're describing. Good luck.

Washing machine leaking underneath


might simply be a small hole in the outlet drainage hose, this would explain why your machine leaks during the final spin, there is more pressure from the water inside the hose during the final spin than when the machine is draining. hope this helps.

Washer is leaking water out from underneath during cycle


Ours had a problem with water sloshing out of the soap cup during the cycle. The leak appeared under the left front. The fix was to remove the cup and just pour the soap into that section of the drawer. The only problem withthis is that you cannot add soap after you add the soap.

What could be a cause of water leaks from Bosch Nexxt 500 gas dryer?


Since there is no water lines connected to a Bosch Nexxt WTMC 6500 gas dryer, the water leak has to be from excess water from the clothes you are trying to dry. Which is probably more the problem.

Does your washer leave an excessive amount of water in the clothes after the spin cycle?

Bosch Nexxt 800 series. We have continued problems with the message "suds or blocked pump" we use HE detergent.. what else?  I have drained it once.. it seems that it continues to not pump out the...


Hello,let the machine rest for a while so suds can disappear then unplug the unit for 1 min then plug it back in it should drain by its self if not do not select wash cycle but a spin/drain then you should hear the pump running, if you don't hear the pump running you can get a wet/dry vac stick on the drain hose and empty the washer, that way if water does not come out you have to access the pump and pinch off the drain hose from the tub and remove the object from the pump, be careful that you don't have a mess with water leaking from the tub good luck.

Thanks

Clothes too wet upon cycle completion...


Try reducing the amount of low sudsing detergent you are using. This can make the load too heavy and won't spin out. Remember suds have 3 parts, air, detergent, and water. The drain pump is designed for water, so if you see suds during the wash, it will be worst on warm and hot, then there is too much detergent, or is not low sudsing. I know Bosch reccommends HE, however HE liquids normally are not low sudsing, just High Engery. Also the Permanent Press cycles are always a lower spin speed. Hope this helps

Suds leaking from back of washer near top


Suds are not supposed to leak from the top; means you are not using the right detergent. Use front loading powders. You can open up the top during next wash to locate where the leak is coming from (after changing powder). I understand suds appear in the window during spin....but leak? Caution when machine works with top open!
