Bosch WFCM 3200 Front load washer leaking from bottom of machine

I have a 2004 model I bought in July 2005. It started leaking from the bottom of the machine on the left side. I've checked all the water lines for leaks and to confirm they are tight. No water around these. I've moved the machine around in the room to see if it was a leveling problem. Still leaking. The seal around the door seems to be in good condition, no holes, warping, etc. I use minimum soap and there is no excess soap or water spilling from the drain pipe or hose.

    I'm adding to the problem I posted. I haven't removed the back of the washer yet, but I have determined that there is a minimal amount of leaking during the wash cycle. Most of the water leaks AFTER the cycle is done and the wash machine is just sitting idle. I can stop the leaking after the cycle by turning off the water supply to the machine at the end of the cycle.

    Hi,

    Yes, it was the fill valves. Once the back cover was off, it was obvious that water was dripping from these little valves at the bottom. I ended up calling the repair person. I think they would have been very easy to replace, but kind of expensive. I'm hoping this isn't a regular occurance with this machine..

    Thanks for the great advice.
    Just unplugging and taking off the back is a great place to start. The machines aren't too complicated.

I would try pulling the machine away from the wall and taking the back panel off. Get yourself a torch and then settle down on the floor while the machine runs a short cycle and wait to find out for certain where the water is coming from and at what stage of the cycle the leak happens.

Safety notes: Turn the power off while removing or refitting the back panel. Keep your hands away from wires and terminals when the power is on, and keep your hands and hair well away from the drive belt while the machine is on!

Once you know where the water is coming from and when, it'll be a lot easier to know what to do about it.

    This sounds like a fill valve that's not shutting off completely.



    You can easily recognise this component: The threaded inlet that your fill hose screws onto is in fact the inlet port on the fill valve.



    Replacements are readily available, and they are one of the easiest parts on the machine to replace. Just work with the water and power turned off, and take careful note of where everthing goes before disconnecting any wires or hoses.

Bosch WFMC 3200 possible leak?


It is normal that there is water in the trap, which is your filter. You clean this not after every wash, it depends on your usage. I have my machine trap looked into once in 2 months; i use it once a week. Of course i clear all pockets of clothes before i put them in machine.

BOSCH WASHING MACHINE RETAINING SPRING FOR FRONT DOOR GASKET


it is very hard to get the ring on front load washers,
it is much easier to remove the top. bottom and the front control panel
then the door and support panel.
now you have access.
some times you have to remove the counter weight in some models before putting on the ring.
if you can do it without removing these items you are very very good.

BOSCH WASHER REPLACEMENT PART


I have the same problem. Bosch no longer stocks the replacement for my particular washer which has the same model no but could be a different fd #. I now have the wrong part as directed by bosch which doesnt have the hose connection. I am not sure what to do with the hose leading to nowhere. Bosch is living off of an undeserved good reputation.


In the present, the reputation is not deserved. Bosch products should only be recommended to enemies. The company and the especially the customer service is beyond deplorable. I hate these appliances. I feel ripped off! The part by the way, which is wrong, is 100.00 with tax.
