Question about Bosch Nexxt 500 WFMC3301 Front Load Washer
Welcome to FixYa.
The filter is located in the front near the bottom, follow below for a complete »"how to".
**Unplug the washer or turn off your breaker before servicing the washer...safety first**
To check and 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 extremely 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 if present, 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.
where is the filter please - - e03d805.jpgttp://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/e03d805.jpg" alt="e03d805.jpg" class="h_mi" />
Now pull out the trap/filter and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well where is the filter please - - cba5b21.jpger/trap.
That is how you gain access to and clear the filter on your Bosch washer.
Re-install the filter and run a test with some towels or something to check it`s performance and to insure the filter is tight with no leaks before putting the cover back in place.
If this answered your question, awesome. If not let me know and I`ll try and help further.
