How do I replace the drain pump for my Bosch WFMC530 Nexxt 500 Plus Series Washer drain pump?

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.

Good luck

I cleared my outlet pump (Whirlpool AWM8000) area of coins, etc. Since as it was come up with error FP (drain fault). It drains during wash, but the last part of wash (last 5 min) it make a noise and error...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would still suggest you go through the whole action all over again JUST to make sure that something hasn't been 'released' into the filter or the pump area. As the pump is managing to drain most of the water I wouldn't think that it is at fault. I would be interested to know if the 'error' is the same- 'FP'(?).
Here are my pre-typed complete (sorry!) guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!
