Question about Bosch Nexxt 100 Series WFMC1001UC Front Load Washer
Welcome to FixYa.
To clean the pump on your washer, If you direct your attention to the bottom right side of your Bosch you'll see a small round cover like so...
With the aid of a small screw driver, knitting needle, or anything small enough to fit in the small hole in this cover...
It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force.
Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free, the edges are very sharp so be careful.
Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a red ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan )
There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out.
Now pull out the trap/filter and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap.
That is how you gain access to and clear the filter on your Bosch washer.
Hope you found this helpful. If so please take a moment to write a short testimony and leave a rating.
Thank you for choosing FixYa, good luck.

Examine if there's a problem with the filter. If the machine isn't draining, spinning or agitating, the washer pump filter may be clogged, and you should clean the pump filter. Other giveaways that the filter may need cleaning include the washer performing an incomplete cycle, the timer not advancing or the washer just not running
Clean the filter with your fingernails, removing all loose debris. Wash the filter under running water until it is clean.
Replace the filter. Insert it back into its housing, turn it clockwise and close the door.
