Remove the bottom front panel of the washer.
The pump will be in the front center.
Remove the lint cartridge from the pump by turning it,then pull it out.
Clean out any debris in the pump filter and re-install it.

Good day,
There is blockage between the outlet of the tub on the machine to the end of the hose.
First, if you have the outlet hose that is fitted into a standpipe, that could well be the problem.
In other words, there is nothing wrong with the washer, it is plumbing problem in the vertical drain pipe. Happens often.
Shut the water to the machine off, remove one of the hoses, and stick it into the stand pipe. Turn the water on. If it backs up, that is your problem.

If not, then the machine is at fault. A hose runs from the bottom outlet of the tub to the pump. Then from the pump to the outlet hose.
You'll need to remove the hoses, and pump to inspect them. It's even a possibility the pump's impeller is slipping, and lastly, check closely where the hose was removed from the bottom of the tube. Could be the classic "sock" problem.

You did not give the model. Get that information, and then type into google....................
"How to change a water pump on a ( your info) washer".
You'll get the hits you need to see how to access the pump and related accessories.

The pump on the Bosch WFB 2000 front loading washing machine doesnt seem to be pumping all the water out, it leaves about 40mm of water in the drum. It though pumps and seems to be working, as it does pump...


  1. Check the filter is clean.
  2. Check that the outlet pipe is completely clear of debris and soap / detergent scum.
If this does not cure the problem then it may be there is soimething trapped in the water pump or thst the pump is actually defective which will mean a new pump is required.

To keep the machine clean of waste build up and to keep any bad odors away
  1. Remove all items from the washer.
  2. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
  3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
  4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
  5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
  6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
  7. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly

M9503 washer dryer not draining before dry cycle.


Check these out:
  • If your washer spins but does not pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that is attached to the pump or even into the pump itself. It it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.
  • To remove the item from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Using a needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the stuck item through the port.
  • Check your washer for a frozen pulley. Remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely, it's frozen, replace it.
  • If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back after the spin cycle, your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub.
  • Also check for these problems:
  1. If the drain hose reaches more than 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut the excess.
  2. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
