Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, " machine is leaking water from underneath... it sounds like it is filling up, but the machine is not even plugged in "... the issue is likely with the inlet/water valve.

**To remedy this you will need to replace the valve, not surprising for Bosch unfortunately**
This is what to look for..i.e.

hi my bosch washing machine - e601791.jpg
As long as your model number is indeed SHU9915 series, this info below will be accurate.

I say not surprising because this part has been an issue for the B/S/H/ built machines in the past and as a result the original part number 189553 now substitutes to 425458. It usually retails for about $20 - $30USD at places such as "searspartsdirect.com" "repairclinic.com" to name a couple.

**Before attempting to repair the unit please turn off the power and the water supply to the dishwasher...safety first**


If you remove the lower kick plate/toe panel, you will see the inlet valve to your left...


i.e.

Replacing it is pretty straight forward. Here`s how...

1) undo the water line.

2) the two #20 torx screws fastening it in place.



3) the feed tube to the machine at the back of the valve and swap it with the hi my bosch washing machine - 5937279.jpg>

Once the new one is in you should be good to go.

Let me know if you need any further assistance, otherwise good luck.

Thanks for visiting FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Will not fill with water


Sounds a bit obvious but have you checked isolation tap is on?? Sometimes if the tap is the small plastic type (red or blue) the plastic can break and although the tap looks like its in the on position the valve underneath is off, remove the plastic tap (should be a small screw holding it to valve) check the rectangular valve underneath is in line with the pipe, if not use a pair of pliers to turn on. If the problem is with one of the valves on the machine itself, try a cold cycle, rinse or prewash to see if it fills on a different cycle.

Water underneath unit


Check your water hoses may be leaking behind the machine or at the tap.If the hose is leaking turn all taps off. the alloy crimp needs to be cut off & put a hose clamp on the hose.turn all taps off when machine has finished the wash.

Bosch washing machine classixx 6 1200 express.machine will fill with water. after 5mins the following error f:17 appears on the screen. machine has to be turned off and set at a different setting


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

'F17' on a number of Bosch models indicates a problem with filling.

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Bosch washing machine


You have a sticking water inlet valve, which is slowly letting water enter m/c.
If it is a hot and cold fill m/c, what you need to do is turn either the hot or cold tap off to the m/c, and see if the problem continues, if say you turn the hot off and it still comes into the washer, then you have sticking cold valve, replace with new one. if after turning cold off, and it still fills, then you need new hot valve fitting.
If it is a cold fill m/c only, then simply replace the cold inlet valve.
Problem solved.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Error code


hi sir one of these problem will be there 1 - No cold fill. Check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked. 
2 - No hot fill.The ambient temperature is likely to be below freezing possibly due to the pipes being frozen. Also check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked. 
3 - No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps. 
4 - Check the water supply, inlet valve and hot and cold hose connections. 
4 - A fault with the water heating has occurred. 
5 - Water is not being pumped out and a flood condition could occur. Check that the drainage hose is raised to the recommended minimum height and that the pipe is not blocked. 
6 - Extremely high water level Disconnect or turn off the water supply and ensure that the water level does not rise any more. Then book a service engineer. 
7 - Door not closed properly. Close door firmly at the 3 o'clock position. 
E20/1 - The thermistor resistance has drifted or the temperature scanning sequence is incorrect. The ambient temperature could be below freezing. 
thank u............

Won't fill with water


hiya
sounds like a faulty inlet valve, but as the machine has just been moved i would check the water taps, if they are the red and blue plastic ones these tend to go brittle and snap inside, so when you turn them you automatically presume the water is on, but in reality the plastic tap turns but the valve underneath has'nt.

easiest way to check is turn the taps into the off position then remove from the machine and hold into a bucket or large dish, turn on one at a time, if they turn on then its the inlet valve on the machine at fault.


hope this helps

Bosch nexxt washer is leaking from underneath


I found out why mine leaks. In the Bosh design there is a trap molded into the soap dispenser plastic tray. This tray or trap has a wide open path to the inside of the washing machine. We are using the tide pods as a detergent. Two things are going on here. This trap fills up with water immediately when water is cycled into the machine. The second thing is the pods partially dissolve and leave a gunk that blocks the water pathway to the drum. This blockage eventually allows water to pass however when the pressure is high and this blockage is restricting the water level rises and the trap dumps out into the washer panels. This water immediately leaks down and out the bottom. Observation when I disassembled the machine the trap was moldy and stinky. Water stains were running down the inside. Maybe the engineers at Bosch should look into this.
