Question about Bosch Nexxt 100 Series WFMC1001UC Front Load Washer
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on what you`ve described, it sounds like perhaps there is an obstruction in the pump...or perhaps the pump is indeed seized/failed.
I would first check the pump for obstructions.
**Unplug the washer or turn off your breaker before servicing the washer...safety first**
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 green or red ring attached to a metal clip on the pump, 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. There is potential for a lot of water...even if the washer looks empty.
Now pull out the trap/filter and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well aMy washing machine works fine - cba5b21.jpgr/trap.
That is how you gain access to and clear the filter on your Bosch washer.
If this was the problem, awesome. If not let me know and I`ll try and help further.
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.
