Question about Bosch Nexxt 500 WFMC3301 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Bosch Nexxt 500 WFMC3301UC Front Load Washer is leaking water somewhere inside the unit. It is only doing this from the hot water source. All connections are tight and there are no external leaks. The cold water source is not leaking. I have also removed the water filter from the back of the machine and it is clear. You can hear a 'drip' sound but I am unable to locate the source or cause.

It sounds like it may be the hot water valve, the valve itself may be leaking or the water pressure from your hot supply may not be high enough to 'lock' the valve fully when not energized. The second problem could be rectified by using a 'y' piece splitter on you cold supply and running both valve on cold water,

I replaced the original leaking washer hoses on my Nexxt 500 machine with metal ones. On quick wash cycle, water does not flow at all. Does the Bosch Nexxt 500 require OEM hoses only for water flow?


A hose is a hose is a hose. Type of hose won't make any difference.
If you can, try to do a wash cycle that allows you to see if both the hot and cold water are working. You may have loosened a wire connection to one of the valves for the hot or cold when you connected the new hose, or possibly there was something inside the new hose that is now blocking one of the valves.

Bosch washing machine leaks at right bottom


The part that you removed, was the pump filter, the pump is located behind the filter, possibly, the pump itself is leaking, or the filter cover is not fastened in tight enough, pr the filter seal is defective, if after tightening, it still leaks, suggest you replace the pump.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Our Bosch Nexxt washer uses very hot water on all


there is a mixing valve that uses a solenoid to open and close (and mix) the hot/cold inlet water based on your selection.
If you verify the correct model # I can point you in the right direction for a new valve if you are so inclined.
