Question about Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I need to replace the front rubber "boot" since it somehow has a small tear in it and leaks during washing. I've seen the replacement part for sale. Is this a repair I can do myself? I'm very handy with all kinds of repairs but I can't seem to find a service manuel to describe the repair job.Its a Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 washer and its the main rubber gasket between the glass door and the machine itself

To replace the front rubber boot you'll need to remove the front panel first. Remove the control panel held in by a small screw on right (be careful not to pull the wires, use a string for support.

1) Remove bottom panel taking out filter plug one screw and slide to the right to remove
2) Top control panel 3 screws from feeder tray area,1 screw on right side of the main side panel
3)pop off control panel with screw driver at top edge( it clips in)
4) Door off 2 screws
5)Top of machine 2 screws at the rear top
6) Front panel 2 screws at the bottom (have to lay on the floor to locate)
7) Front panel itself is held in place with 4 palstic grommits two either side at the bottom pop outs (locate with a torch use big screw driver) two grommits at the top each side which slide down and out
You can access the rims all around to fit on the boot two pair of hands is good.

Then remove the three 10mm bolts holding the concrete ring retaining clips and carefully lift out the ring. You can now remove the inner spring and replace the boot.

To assemble it back follow the reverse process. Tricky part is getting the tension on the inner spring retainer and the wire-spring (outer) retainer. SOmeone can help you with the inner spring, one person can hold it and the other person could fit it whilst applying tension and wrapping it around the seal (boot) to meet the other end. Fitting the wire-spring outer retainer is a bit like fitting a tyre back on a wheel rim - use spoons to help with the fitting. Hope this helps... If it does please do not forget to accept the solution or post back for assistance.

Why is my whirlpool deut washer tearing clothes

Check the little holes around the drum, I have seen pins and needles get stuck in these and cause lots of damage. I would replace the seal.

When you run a wash there is some water on the tile floor. I found the rubber gasket inside the door is torn.

If the tear is small, try using silicon glue to repair it--clean the surface of the boot and apply the glue. Let dry for 24 hours before using the machine. If the tear is large, the boot must be replaced. It can be done from the front without removing the cabinet, but it's tricky. These tears usually occur when trying to remove jeans and a metal button catches the rubber.

Water leaking bottom front door

Check out the front seal carefully for a replacement. Due to the flexibility of the seal, it is not to easy to spot a tear mark, Under pressure of an operation load, a small tear will allow water leaking through, so there is a leak. It is very common that a hard sharp object left inside clothing and during washing cycle, it makes its way to the seal and cause a damage. Hope this can help.

It is leaking from what looks like under where the big gray rubber seal is at the door


** First, unplug the unit from the wall**

Remove the lower panel if you haven't already. Inspect the rubber seal/boot/bellows you spoke of. You'll likely find a tear in it somewhere, or a hole. Short of repairing it with a rubber tire/tube patch kit, it'll need to be replaced. I've seen many do-it-yourself-ers have success with the repair kits or some other epoxy/adhesive type fix.

(Be careful you don't want something that's going to come of during use and damage your clothing)

hope that helps, Good Luck

Water leaking in front of washer mainly from what seems to be the gasket around front of washer.

Either the rubber boot is damaged in some way, or the door is not locking tight enough. Thoroughly inspect the boot for tears or gouges in the rubber surface. Small imperfections can be repaired with silicon glue, but larger tears will require replacement of the boot--which can be done done through the door opening, but requires patience to do so. Inspect the door lock for damage or wear if the boot looks to be in good condition.

Water is coming out of the front of the washer

The rubber boot that surrounds the door inside likely has a tear in the rubber. If the tear is small, you might be able to fix it with an application of weather strip cement. A large tear means replace the boot.

It sounds like you have a leak somewhere around the door bellow. This is the rubber boot that seals the wash tub to the door frame. Pull the folds back and inspect around the entire perimeter of the rubber. You could have a small rip or tear somewhere. There are a series of small holes in the bottom of the bellow that are supposed to be there. This is the allow any standing water to drain back into the wash tub. If you cannot find any obvious signs of leaks, remove the lower panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Start the washer on a normal wash and watch for any leaks. If the door bellow leaks, the front counterweight (usually a concrete block) will begin to get wet and drip. This could also be an indication of the bellow clamp around the wash tub being loose. If the leak starts to pool under the washer and run out the front, this is usually an indication of a drain pump leak or drain line leak. Please inspect the washer with the panel removed and the washer on a load and post back and let me know. Go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this helps you.

PS One other item. On the left hand side of the door bellow is the a dispenser tube that penetrates through the bellow and allows water to enter the wash tub. Sometimes the dispenser tube is not seated all the way into the rubber (should be seated past the flange) and it will dispense water behind the rubber instead of into the wash tub. Just something else to consider...
