SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a Bosch washer wfc5301uc it is showing error code E02

Could be a faulty inlet valve, or not enough pressure to operate valve,
Remove hose onto valve, and check the water is getting to it o/k,turning off the water to the valve before you undo the hose.
Hope this helps.

Bosch washer #2460 signas that water tap is closed, checked the hoses and screens


I am not sure why but there are 2 posts for your question. This is a duplicate of my original answer:
If you have checked the hoses and screens then the most probable failure is the inlet water valve. I suspect that one of the electrical water valve solenoids has failed. If you using cold water try a warm or hot wash. If your using hot or warm try a cold wash. I am not sure on this washer if there is a mixing valve but may front loading washers have mixing valves that mix hot and cold water simply to help dissolve the HE type soaps. If changing wash temp makes no difference then a continuity check for inlet water valve coil resistance will have to be performed with an inexpensive ohm meter. If there is no continuity the solenoid has failed and the inlet water valve will have to be replaced.

This unit appears to have 2 inlet water valves one for hot and cold and one for just cold that is used for diluting soap. You will need to check all 3 solenoids for continuity. The inlet water valves are items 5 and 6 of this picture:

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...


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,

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection


Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

MY WASHER DRIPS WATER WHEN NOT EVEN IN USE AND FILLS UP THE BUCKET THEN I HAVE TO EMPTY IT BEFORE I USE IT AGAIN, I ASSUME ITS SOME SORT OF SEAL AT THE TOP. ANY OTHER THOUGHTS? THANKS


GMWILLY,
There are two solenoid valves where the water connections come into the washer. These are electrically activated valves that open and close to allow hot/cold water into the tub. I'm guessing that the seals on the solenoid valves are shot, and therefore not fully cutting off the water supply. The unit comes in a single housing with both hot/cold valves. If you're handy, it should not be difficult to open the back plate on the washer and replace the solenoid valve assembly yourself. There will be 4 or more wires connected to the unit. It's important that you move them to the replacement unit exactly. The wires are usually colo-coded so take notes. Please observe all safety precautions and disconnect electrical power before attempting any repair.

I would suggest you download the parts manual for your washer (if possible) before shopping for the replacement solenoid valve assembly. http://www.repairclinic.com is one of many resources for appliance parts and info.

Good luck

Prem.
