    Its your bearings that are faulty. When they collapse the can start letting the wash water leak out. I'm afraid its terminal. It needs a new drum rear unless you can get a bearing kit but need the model number. If a kit is available then you will still need an engineer to do it as its about a 2 hour job. Expect to pay around 100 still. If its a new drum rear then Expect 200 plus. Sorry its not better news

Hi

The issue is with the drain pump assembly that requires cleaning, it is locates inside the bottom front panel and this access panel comes out to clean. After cleaning if the issue returns and the drain pump are working then replace the impeller assembly, if the drain pump is not working and you still hear the sound then the drain pump assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Bosch maxx 1000 - when finished cycle, leaves central fabric conditioner drawer full of water + trace of condtioner.


Check that the hose that connects the drawer to the tub is clean, fabric conditioner normally gunks up especially on colder wash cycles.

Bosch avantixx front loader leaking underneath machine? machine only 2 years old


  • You will find a small door on the front bottom of the washing machine.
  • Open it.
  • Unscrew the filter and rinse it with running water.
  • Put it back in place and repeat the above steps in reverse order.
This should solve your leakage problem.

Does anyone know how to check a fuse in my Bosch Maxx 1000 washing machine??


Try it in a different socket as it may not be the machine. The machine would have been factory fitted with a moulded plug, lift out the middle section and try a new fuse. If the unit failed after filling then possibly you have a short on the wash heater..you could verify this if you get power by setting a cold cycle or rinse and see if if completes it. Please also check that the consumer unit (main fuse box) has not been triggered.

I unclogged the GD by removing the pipes underneath and replaced them tightly. GD seems to be working fine now, but water is slowly leaking from underneath the GD! It appears to be leaking from the...


The leak comes from above where water comes out.

Turn off power before touching wet electrical appliance.

Put stopper in disposal.
Fill sink with water.
Check if water is getting through the putty seal at sink connection.

Next, check if water leaks only when dishwasher runs. Dishwasher drains into garbage disposal.

Last, check tailpiece where it attaches to side of garbage disposal. The tailpiece is usually sealed with a rubber washer. When washer is old, it gets deformed, and then it doesn't seal perfectly when put back.

I use rectorseal on all tubular pipe joints under the sink.
Works on both plastic and rubber washers.
It is gooey and sticky.
Brush it all over the washer, use plenty, then assemble pipes.
The rectorseal assures that joint will not leak.
