New Bosch water not draining

I just got a new Bosch Axxis 2060 and I've had it for 5 months and I'm just starting to notice that when I open the door it smells like mildew. I've seen a little standing water inside the rubber thing around the outside, how do I clean this? My clothes don't stink yet, but the smell is only getting worse, so I'm sure it'll start soon.

    I noticed it when mine was a few months old, too, and was very disappointed. I could not find the source, either, but noticed that when I kept the rubber thingy wiped out and left the door open, it wasn't as bad. (not a good feature since it was in my kitchen.)  I accepted that the problem was just an annoyance.  
    It is two years later, and I now have a housefull of clean clothes that I can't wear because they smell too strongly of mildew to wear.
    I decided today to get to the bottom of it, because my son told me he pulled the rubber thingy back and there was a strip about 12" long by 3" wide of furry black mildew there.  I scrubbed whatever I could of that out, and then decided that since I couldn't get it really clean I would like a new rubber thingy.  So I tried to see how it was attached and discovered another forest of mildew behind the rubber thingy.   I would try to get your money back if you can, I can't imagine what normal weekly maintenance would prevent this, short of disinfecting and drying it every time.

Most mildew type deposits in the boot gasket (rubber thingy) are caused by over powdering and low temp washes try a washing machine cleaner and try lowering the amount of detergent and a 60 or 90 deg wash every month
bad smells are usually caused by if you have a stand pipe drain the lower end of the hose is sitting permanantly in water and syphoning back into the appliance

I think this originates from a loosening of the seal between the grey rubber and the door itself. if it is tight enough the water may not seep as much into the area within the grey rubber.

Always leave the washer door open after use to allow inside to dry completely. Any remaining moisture invites mildew.

Washer won't start


Sounds like the door lock may be faulty or it isn't closed fully. If it has a child lock check you haven't set it by mistake, you have to hold the start for 5 secs+ to override it.

Have you checked for any blockages, in the drain pipe? If that doesn't help you might have a bad pump, here's the part:

Bosch washer door won't open after wash is done


The door is probably locked, because the water is still draining. If this is not the answer, the the suction between the dor and the opening is too strong and you must get it weakened by a professional. There is one more solution, and that is to unplug the machine, reset it, and then try opening the door.

Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 washer leaks


Hi. Check the doorseal by lifting the folded lip which faces toward the drum opening. Use a torch and carefully examine the doorseal. It may have a small hole which is hard to see at first.
If door seal is ok remove top of machine and check inlet valve. Turn power off and with your hand examine the inlet water valve. If it feels damp on the solenoid then it leaks from there and finds its way around to the front of the machine though the frame work. This leak happens due to to much water pressure at your laundry taps. If so install a pressure reducing valve before the water inlet hose and replace the water inlet valve in the machine as it is now faulty.

My washer stops!


You should check and clean the outgoing water screen to make sure your washer can drain properly. Sounds like you have a restriction in your system.. could be a filter screen or the pump itself. Try the screen first and then cycle a load of wash without any clothes in it to see if it empties the drum completely.
Hope that helps...
