Hello Angelapevans,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description you likely have a clogged drain pump/filter.

Here`s how to check since that would be the first logical place to start.

1) **Turn oiff the power or unplug the cord from the dryer or wall...ehichever applies to your set-up...safety first**

2) Water removal...remove toe panel.


HI. We have a WFK2401 - 3348639.jpg
3) Now bleed pump drain...A shallow pan is handy for this step.

3) remove pump filter, but be careful if you don't have a shop-vac or a shallow pan and towels you may get wet...
*Once you`ve gotten to this point you may have trouble removing the filter if it is really plugged up with debris. You might have to wiggle it back and forth as you twist and pull.

4) When you get the filter out, visually inspect inside the pump thoroughly with a flashlight and clean it out really well. It won`t take much to prevent these from draining. i.e. a penny, hair pin, buttons etc.

Let me know if you found anything in the pump and how you make out after that.

If you removed any obstruction, simply reassemble the unit making sure the filter is screwed in tight, run a quick rinse cycle to test for leaks before putting the toe panel back on and you should be good to go...save for any leaks.

There are other possible factors that can prevent the unit from draining or spinning out items properly, but we`ll cross that bridge when and if we get there.

Thank you for choosing FixYa, keep me posted on your situation.

    It appears the photos I attached didn`t appear, let me try again. They should have appears as follows...



    1) Toe panel...






    2) Identify pump bleed tube...










    3) Bleed water from pump...










    4) Pump filter remove...turn counter-clockwise.










    Sorry about that first attempt. I`m not sure what happened.

My Bosch WFK2401 washer has stopped filling. The cycle will count down and the pump will run to drain (but nothing to drain!). I have checked the supply lines, there is water and the filter screens are...


I suspect the solenoid on the water input connection has failed, this is the unit that allows water into the machine , if you know a bit open the lid and you should see this just inside behind the cold water connection.

Clear away and debris bits of metal, plastic, etc that has stopped the pump.

My bosch wfk2401 front loader is stuck on spin


Hi
There is a door bottom right of the system which has a screw out (by hand) plug.
Remove this and ensure there are no foreign objects such as coins, bobby pins etc stuck.

I have found this to be a problem with the Bosch systems and cost me $150 the first time.

Ensure you have some towels as when you open the plug, water will escape

Bosch WFK2401 Drain Pump


I have a WFL 2060 UC on the bottom right there is a small access door. Inside the door you will find a drain plug which will unscrew counter clock wise. Water will come out so I tipped up the machine and slid a 1" deep cooking pan under the corner. When I unscrewed the plug I found a penny inside.
